I love em, they are ace, it must be common for a turbopower 2 to be missing it's tools, I think they had a tendancy of falling off if they were not put back in properly and the cleaner was dropped or banged into something and then they became lost. All mine were missing when I got it, thankfully I managed to grab an original full set off ebay, and that will be your only bet really in finding some as they don't make them anymore.

Nice machine though, does it run nicely?

Oh and...

This model was probably from around 96 or 97 because it has the thicker hose and no short crevice tool slot, they got rid of the short crevice tool when the turbopower 3 models came out in 96 but if you gave me the serial number I can date it exactly for you. ;) Unless of course you know how to do that. :p

It's still haunting me that just prior to me becoming properly interested in vacuums (i'd always liked them but it wasn't the obsession it's becoming now !) I let my mum send one of these to the council rubbish tip.
Yes, I know it was wrong & i'm hanging my head in shame.
