I got this vacuum a couple of years ago. My grandparents got it at a yard sale for a couple of dollars and it can with 5 new packs of bags. It a small little vacuum and looks little it's based off a Panasonic vacuum. It has a metal base plate and plastic roller brush. Anyone know anything about it? I looked up the brand and they seem to still be selling bags for it but nothing else. The one I have is berried in my shead so here a screen shot of it on one of Riccar rad video

I think

I heard somewhere that there were problems with the brushrolls melting at the end caps.

Don't expect much...

I have one of those. It barely raises the pile on my cut pile plush carpet, so it sits by my clothes dryer to use to clean the lint screen. It has decent suction on the hose, suits that purpose perfectly.

We sold them at one of the stores I worked for for a short. Of time. I do remember the brush roller and bass having some sort of issue. It wasn't bad for a $79 vacuum though.
Essco and AE Carter is where they came from.

Looks like a Panasonic clone

These resemble a mini upright that Panasonic made in the early to mid 1980ís. Even the belt clutch is in the same place.

They are made by ESSCO. These are also sold in other brands such as Cirrus, Morse, Bissell, etc. It's a Panasonic knockoff, these were made WAY after Panasonic quit making the Jet-Flo (Dual Purpose) versions. I think it's overall a slightly good vacuum.
