It's a 1999 model that they say runs very well and is clean and serviced. However, it's missing the headlight lens and attachments.

I was about to buy that exact one, but it turns out that Fury was a trash picked vacuum. The ebay seller has a YouTube channel and talked about it. I have no problem with people refurbishing trash picked vacuums, but they should at least mention that it came from the trash and was serviced into "like-new" condition.

Itís my machine and listing. What difference does it make if it came from the curb, yard sale or a thrift store? In fact had I stated it was from a thrift store you wouldnít know the difference. Itís a used machine regardless. If the fact that it was picked up from the curb stopped you from purchasing it then with that same logic you shouldnít buy any used machine. Iíve seen thrift store Vacs in much much worse shape that havenít been cleaned up at all and smell horrible. Most curb finds I pick up just need a belt and cleaning.

Just as my Dad always told me

One man's trash is another man's treasure.

I'm not interested in buying this Fantom Fury. I'm still interested in a refurbished 10 amp Fantom Fury.

Happy New Year!
