Hello All,
I haven't posted much in the past years so I wanted to create a thread with my current collection. I had to move everything when I left for college so it was all incredibly unorganized and stressful, although I just recently got around to organizing. Unfortunately I haven't even begun to go through any parts, or even my storage unit, but luckily I have the summer for that.

Everything here is mostly organized by brand, so I will start with Hoover Uprights.

Enjoy!

*These pictures were taken on my phone so the quality will be minimal

I guess Hoover is my favorite brand, I never realized how many I had until I grouped them all together.
Clearly I have a lot of thinning out to do this summer so stay tuned for things to be up for sale!

That's an impressive collection.

  Nice representation of HOOVER,  too. Isn't is staggering how many vacs we realize we have?

Here is everything that got tossed when I moved. This really made me realize how I'll most likely never use / need anything that has been sitting for almost 10 years.

Very, very nice machines. You should be proud. I especially like your canisters AND your Fantoms. You have good taste. That Westinghouse Wired is RARE.

Here are the Hoover canisters, minus the Constellation 86 and 2008 stainless steel model.

(clearly a bit more organizing is in order!)

Concepts, including a somewhat uncommon JCP model.

Unfortunately, my non-power drive Concept 2 has seen much better days. I have the power drive version in storage (along with many others).

The red one is awaiting a deep cleaning. There is also a brown and lime green model in storage, complete with tools and tool carrying bag.

Two somewhat uncommon Convertibles - a U4001 and U4021.

I've had the 1030 for years and I've neglected to clean it up, still need to get to it.

More Convertibles and two Decades. I've got four more metal base Convertibles in storage, although I am unsure of the model numbers. As well as an early 80s JCP model.

The Royals that I neglected to post a photo of before. I have the commercial wide-track model and the non-headlight model in storage. As well as an early Power Tank and a late commercial model.

A very unique Kenmore Lifestyle, still waiting to be given an overhaul. This one will be going to another collector.

And finally...

vacman117's profile picture
A few goodies that I have gotten in the past few months. The Hoover & GE were $1 from a flea market and the Sentria was free.

The Constellation has all of the attachments and works great, it even came with two Convertible manuals (one being a model 66) and a Swingette manual.

The General Electric Swivel Top is in great condition. I believe this was the economy model. Surprisingly, the hose is almost as air tight as it would have been the day it came out of the box. It included all of the attachments other than the wands and floor nozzle.

The Sentria came from a family who absolutely hated it. I had sold the lady a hose for it a few months back. When I dropped it off she went on and on about how she bought it only to get the salesman out of her house. She contacted me about two months later and told me to come get the Kirby. Being the nice person that I am I brought along a lightweight Dirt Devil Swerve for her and she loved it. It is a newer model, judging by the F style bag and straight zipper. This makes three Sentrias, two too many!!

What a very nice collection.
It's good that you have the room to organize them, so you can enjoy.
