This is a Fantom Twister made by euro pro but I dont know why they used the dual cyclonic logos because they didnt have the rights to.When euro pro made Fantoms they were only single cyclonic.

Almost looks like the logo has been photoshopped on... Or the person refurbishing these put one of the Dual Cyclonic Fantom logos on.

Just wanted to correct you on one little thing. The "Fantom" name was bought by Euro-Pro, but this particular model was NOT made by Euro-Pro! Rather, they sub-contracted this particular model series to Sanyo. There are a couple of other models in the Fantom range besides this one that use the same design. If you look on & look at the Sanyo Dirt Hunter uprights, you will notice the bin design is identical.

Completely normal. When Euro-Pro first came out with their Fantom series, they were selling the Twister model with the dual cyclonic logo, for what reason, I cannot say, but I remember watching them on the Home Shopping Network and they had the old dual cyclonic logo. Maybe to trick the public into thinking it was the same company and they had gone back to their old technology? Idk, im not sure anyone would fall for that, since they look NOTHING like the dual cyclonic models Fantom previously had.

That, and it was not a good machine at all.

They were not durable. I had one for a short amount of time, although by the time I bought one, Euro-Pro had changed the Fantom logo to just a bar that said Fantom, but it cleaned really well, however, it died after 7 months of use.
