OK, I was trolling through E-bay and look! How long has this been going on? lol. Has anyone had the pleasure? I wonder if its a screammer like the everything else today. I hope they make one with a PN also.

Wow.....*sigh* looks like Electrolux sold the designs to all of Eureka's classic vacuum cleaners to this strange company called Koblenz...ugh.

Is Koblenx related to Germany's Kobold company?

Now I know how all the Hoover fans feel when they see the Royal label on a Hoover....oy..... :-(

I think it's the other way around.....Koblenz is buying up vacuum designs for which patents have expired.....

Here's a Koblenz carbon copy of a Panasonic "bag-first" upright:

Notice how the vacuum is listed as used. GoVacuum posted on Youtube they were going through inventory for next few weeks. I bet this was one of the things they found.

Kenneth, I think this model WAS a powerhead model. Did you not notice the pigtail on the hose end? They must have lost the PN somewhere, & some other parts, as that floor brush looks like a replacement, & I don't see a crevice tool anywhere in those photos.

I think that is a great looking canister! If the power nozzle was included then I would have definitely jumped on it. Regardless, as is, it will make someone a great bare floor vacuum.

Koblenz power team

This is a power head canister. It's a Eureka style hose, if you look at the hand grip where the receptacle is. I think these were made by Eureka. It's not my video so I'm not linking to it, but on youtube if you search Koblenz Power Team, there is a demo video on there of a Koblenz power nozzle canister that looks quite similar to a Eureka vintage 1700 series style of 1980's. I've looked into getting one of these but never seen one on eBay, they are rare!
