Today I happen to go to savers and saw this there. It looks like its in good condition other than missing half the bumper and its a little dirty. I have not tried it out yet.

I polished it and it came out very nice. I haven't tried it out yet though.

Just remember to wear hearing protection. Those Royals are insanely loud!

I have no problems with "loud" Royals.

Your Royal looks like a model 9100. It would use the 7 amp (non-drop-in) motor. Maybe the fan blades and/or bearings need check up? It can't sound as insane as those 8/9/10-amp models from 1995 and thereafter.

Royal 9100

You nailed it Ben. It is a model 9100. I used it for the first time today and it worked great. I would like to get a new bumper for it at some point.
