I have some vacuums and parts for sale or trade. Not sure what thread this is supposed to go in but please move it to the correct thread if it's in the wrong one. I would be willing to trade Vacuums and/or parts for a Bison. Here's what I have to trade: A maroon Hoover Elite 600 in good condition that works, a red hood for a Hoover Encore soft bag that is in good condition, Dirt Devil Broom Vac Parts, Misc attachments and wands, a Compact Turbinette Cyclonic Nozzle, a small black Eureka Powerhead with two black plastic wands(not sure which model it goes to), an Electrolux Model XII (no cord, just the vacuum, not sure if it works), Misc. Kirby Heritage II Attachments and Caddy, a Heritage II handle, Dirty water and Solution tank for Red/White Bissell SC Carpet Cleaner, Shampooer tray and rug renovator head for a Kirby Classic Omega, 2 Shampooer tanks for a Kirby Heritage II, and a Miracle Head for a Kirby Classic Omega. I would be willing to trade any or all of this for a Bison vacuum! I would also be willing to sell any of this but I would rather trade. Please let me know if your interested! Thanks!

I believe that your small Eureka power head and plastic wands are for a Eureka Mighty Mite. Yes, there was a version of a Eureka Mighty Mite canister, probably early 90's that had an electric hose and used a power nozzle. I've seen, never used it. The power head I'm describing would have the approximate dimensions: 9 or 10" wide x 3" long x 2.5" tall. Very small, compact profile, no headlight, with small diameter brush roll with bristle tufts that are somewhat far apart, similar brush roll design to Boss Widepath stick style vacuum except for black bristles. I think the agitator was black plastic with black very soft bristles.

Does that description fit what you have? If not then perhaps you have a full size 12" nozzle with headlight, newer style since the newer style canisters have plastic wands. The 12" World Vac style power nozzle would have had chrome wands during its production.

I'd be curious to see a picture as well.

It fits the description of the first power nozzle you described.

I'll probably go for the Compact Turbinette.

Okay. It's in pretty good shape, just a few scuffs. Do you have a Bison to trade for it or do you just wanna pay cash for it? I would like to get somewhere around what it's worth for it if possible.

Well from what I remember the Floor show was what the whole vacuum system was called. I think the words floo show were in like a pink or violet color on a black machine?

Post# 191804 , Reply# 10   7/27/2012 at 23:48 (2,805 days old) by thevacuumguy96 (Nampa, ID)        

Yes, because the words are in pink on the power head I have. I don't have the rest of the vacuum though.

I also have a brand new outer bag for a Hoover Commercial Vacuum and a brand new bellows to go along with it. And for machines, I have a Fantom Thunder in great condition along with a Kenmore Destiny Plus that needs a new fan I believe? Would be willing to trade all or any of that stuff for a Bison vacuum.

If you guys want to get an idea of what the Eureka Mighty Mite power nozzle looked like, take a look at any Eureka cordless Quick-up or Boss Lite - the power head on those stick vacs is identical to the one that came with the Floor Show.

The head was also designed to connect directly to any Eureka electrified hose with a gas pump handle, and could be used that way as a mini power nozzle for stairs and mattresses!

I have a hood for an Encore Supreme. Not the actual vacuum.

I don't have the Encore Softbag. I have the hood for the Encore Soft bag. And the lux XII is 10 plus shipping.
