I got some old vacuums I need to get rid of, two are VERY recent, but one is an old machine.

I have
1x Electrolux Ergorapido
1x dirt devil gator 10.8v
1x RARE dirt devil hand vac plus m08510 (originally an ebay find!)

Sadly the M08510 is in REALLY REALLY REALLY ROUGH shape. It's held together by screws drilled into the casing then flattened to hold the motor in place after the screw holders broke during use. the switch was put in the wrong way during reassembly. she runs at the very least, though. I've kept her around for stair cleaning, but then she was neglected and used less only to just now to be replaced by another M08510 (a 6.8 amp motor in this thing unlike the other one's 7 amp motor, so it's a more rare version i guess!) for the stairs

the other 2 have just been sitting on a charger for quite some time and the dirt cups are full and will be shipped that way. no real story. You can find them on my Ebay. just search for 3333aaaa

One man's garbage is another man's

garbage. "1990's" and "rare" do not belong in the same sentence.

About the garbage

It is rare to my knowledge. 90's not belonging in the same sentence is up for debate. I'm only selling that one for parts so if someone needed a bush, a switch, a cord, a motor, a fan, etc. They could grab it off my machine. I'm not expecting someone to use it to add their collection. I could list it as for parts, but ebay won't let me for some weird reason. I'd throw it away, but I'd feel too guilty about throwing something that someone could use for parts.

an update

I decided to remove my hand vac from ebay. given it's shape, NOBODY would want to buy my rare M08510 with the fact that it's been reinforced by screws and that it still seems to be crumbling. My Ergorapido has been sold, and my Gator is still for sale. instead of selling the machine as a whole, I will be parting out the handvac plus, and sell what I can. Besides, a machine that rare would not even be worth being sold for parts. Now if it were a m08100, which is more common, then maybe it might be better to be sold for parts. I plan to list the following off my busted m08510 - bottom plate, brush, and outer bag (a part hard to find in green). I will list the motor and the fan shaft if i can 1) break the smoothened out screw that can't be removed by a screw driver and 2) get the shaft off the motor. the fan i might not sell unless i deem it to be in good enough shape. The case will be tossed as it's not even worth anything.

About the rare dirt devil....

I collect those little dirt devil 90's hand vacs. And amazingly enough I found 2 diffirent green ones, one with the round belt plug and the other looking like that one you had listed. Sadly,(this is about the one like you had listed) I was putting up a shelf to display it, thought the shelf was secure but wasn't, it came falling down, landed right on my sentria, and shattered into more peices than were salvageable. I would be lying if I said I didn't cry over that.

I had a green dirt Devil plus Handvac.
I sold it for a dime a dozen, and really regret it.
Next time I find one, Iím keeping it.
