I stumbled upon this Electrolux upright on Craigslist this morning and I couldn't help myself. I've wanted a newer Lux upright for quite a while, and I couldn't resist one for $40! I gave the people a call and took a quick 20 minute drive to get it. It was owned by an old lady that took great care of it and had it serviced regularly. As far as I know, it came with all of the attachments, as well as bags, scent chips, and the manual. I'll probably use this quite a bit because it's just about perfect for my house. And I also have an electric hose from an Epic upright that I can use on it! I'm pretty excited about this one.

Great Find!

Color Me Jealous! For some reason, I just love Electrolux uprights. But my Epic 3500SR is still at my ex's place...

I would love to get a newer model!

$40 is a great price for that. They had stronger motors if i recall than the earlier models such as the epic 3500
