Vacuums are: Eureka/Sanitaire C2094H, Bissell PowerForce Turbo, Bissell PowerForce, Eureka Ultra ESP, Dyson Dc07, Dirt Devil Ultra Vision Turbo, Dirt Devil EnVision, Bissell ProHeat 2x Pet, Eureka The Boss Power, Eureka Altima, and there's also a box of miscellaneous ProHeat parts and a hose.

I have a machine very similar to your Bissell on the far left, only mine looks slightly different and is red.

Very nice collection! Despite bagless, the Bissell Power Force Turbo works quite well. How is the performance of your gray, Eureka the Boss, Victory style 12" cleaner? I've used similar Victory's--a sky blue model and maroon. The sky blue did ok, and the maroon Victory 4325 Type AX was awful. Can't figure out what went wrong with the 12" Victory 4325 Type AX maroon: . I got it at a yard sale-- it didn't sound good. I cleaned it up, greased bearings, checked everything. The suction wasn't bad, the brush roll was in good shape and spun, but it was like it didn't touch my carpet at all. I reassembled and put it back together a few times, checked wheels and height adjustment but it didn't groom carpet at all. I could still see the front wheel marks completely after reverse path.

Now, we need to have to get you a few power head canisters and some Hoovers! The canisters can absolutely be Hoover!!. I'll take a look on Tennessee Craigslist!!

My victory style Boss works pretty good. It has a sticky switch, and when I got it out of my neighbor's junk pile (They were moving away) it was nasty, and the bag cover has slight fire/burn damage, seems like they picked up cigarette butts with it (heaven knows why). After a good cleaning and a brand new belt it works pretty good. What shocked me was the fact that the belt had the date 12/2001 printed on it.

Haahhahha, I get it John!!

We all know that John loves Hoover, as do I but I like other things as well. There is still a terrific collection here!! The addition of a Hoover though would boost the variety level and prestige as they are such vacs. John and I will help you find one. I haven't been searching any of the regular sites this week as I've been extremely busy, but I'll get back into a more consistent state of things again!

Brown Hoover Convertible w/ white bag!

Ok, here we go a Hoover Convertible for you on Memphis Craigslist for $12.

There is only 1 powerteam canister on your craigslist right now. It's a Eureka Worldvac but it has a burning smell from the motor. So we'll have to stay peeled for something else.

Since you like modern stuff, there is Hoover Windtunnel Self Propelled bagged cleaner on your Craigslist as well, its $50 and a Hoover Windtunnel Supreme in light blue color for $50 as well.

The Convertible is the best deal right now if that style and color appeal to you. Otherwise who knows what may appear next!
