I am currently looking to purchase a few machines that are in need of a refurb (they can be dirty or a fixer upper, just nothing too big) as I am currently thinking about selling some fixed up machines on eBay so I can earn some money for some personal reasons. If anyone is willing to part with any machine make me an offer, and I'll consider it. or if someone wants their machine refurbished, let me know and let me know how much you'd be willing to pay. Note: I am not affiliated with any company or vacuum store, I am just hoping to just earn some extra money alongside my job.

They were NEVER part of my collection. However, I doubt you'd want to pay the shipping from PA

Yeah shipping from PA would be expensive Ė especially if it is a larger/heavier machine. I appreciate it though. But since you have several, Iíll keep you in mind, thanks gottahaveahoove. Lesin Utah. I just might take you up on that offer. Iíll see how much shipping is, sleep on it, then get back to you. If itís a good asking price, and money isnít tight, then most likely Iíll take you up on the offer. My only concern is that the bag is not original on the heritage 2, and that i would likely wind up buying the correct bag. As for the heritage 2, are they both a heritage II or is one or both a heritage II Legend? Only curious.

Heritage 2 bag was original as was heritage 2. I recently sold to some one this past week. I have g4 g6 and 2 sentrias. I have redid g4 and sentrias. The g6 I replaced top fill tubes changed fan. The only issue is tech drive. I'm pretty sure I pop off a few screws and adjust neutral switch tech drive would be fixed. I cleaned up the nozzle and fan housing. I have not buffed the machine but I cleaned the bag. That might be only candidate I have.

The GSix sounds tempting. It sounds like you've got a head start on it so I have less work to do. The Tech drive is my only issue though. I'm not 100% certain I can fix the Tech Drive. I could give it a try, but I'm not really sure I could successfully get it working again. It could be as simple as a minor part replacement/adjustment, but it also could be something bigger where the whole thing needs to be replaced. I'm willing to take on a challenge, but I'm not too certain that I won't be biting off more than I can chew. Another concern of mine, which is perhaps minor, is how long will the vacuum sit around, if you do not want me to send it back to you when I'm done, before it is sold (I have a smaller machine I have for sale, but that's another story). I'll sleep on it though. If I think I can do it, I may take you up on the offer - just depends how much shipping is and what you're asking for. If not, then I'm sorry that I have to reject the offer.

Shipping 30-40. Cost is not a concern. Email me and we can go from there. I'm pretty sure tech drive works just have to take off back neutral drive switch reinstall. I have done this to 3 g series vacuums worked on every one.

I do have a few d80s. I could part with one. I have doubles of most if not all attachments.
