Yes, I actually did get this for free from a vacuum shop of sorts stationed in a very large flea market in Cinci. Basically, the offices of the flea market were holding a drawing once an hour of this container of tickets. When you go to park, you gwt a ticket, sign it, put it in the container. And wouldn't you know it, I won! $100 no less, as credit to any stall in the facility. The bad part was, it was issued as individual papers, valued at $1 each, and you had to sign every one of them, front and back! There has to be a better way lol.

But on to the sweeper! What a lovely color, isn't it? As time goes on, I'm finding more Eurekas that I'm actually liking. As I was growing up Eureka had kindof a bad name in my family, didn't have any luck with them. But this one, it's quite the smart vac! (Not sorry for the pun). It really does do a great job, especially for a "newer" Eureka (which those I still have some problems with, sorry if you are a fan). Really though, quite happy to have this one.

Oh and for all of you that actually read to the end of this, I got a 2nd sweeper too with the price money! Find out what it is on the next post!

I have the same one you have, it was birthday present my sister got for me at a pawn shop for $40 on my 19th! It works like a beast! All it needs is a hose, brush, and nozzle.

and they stopped making them :( sigh - it even has sealed hepa filtration. Let me guess, They discontinued this so they could create more BAGLESS vacuums.
