What can you tell me about today's estate sale find? Hoover Sweep-All 8330. I hope I didn't get ripped off. I paid a whole one dollar and seventy-five cents for it.
It is the non-power-drive version.
Thanks for any info!

I may be mistaken, but I believe that was manufactured by Wagner and branded with the Hoover name. I kind of remember it being a big deal to have a height adjustable carpet sweeper at the time. As soon as I saw it, that came to my mind, which works in mysterious ways.

You got ripped off....send it to me and we can digitally cry together afterward.

Nice find! It looks like a standard screw-in mop handle will fit.

 

Electrolux sold Bissell sweepers branded the "Electrolux Casual Sweeper" during the run of the F and early G. I have one in perfect condition. It "kinda" works for surface fluff...

I just removed it when I put it in the car. Seems to work well. Very quiet...

Such estate sale karma...

Paul,
To quote the definitive 80's band "Culture Club"...once again you are a "karma chameleon" when it comes to estate sales.

I believe I found a similar model at a Ft Worth estate sale years ago. I brought it to the Bay Area to give to a collector while I was visiting my brother's family. My 6 year niece gave it a test drive and with her signature side glance she said "I hope you didn't pay to much for this Uncle Sean". I know she would be satisfied with the price you paid.

Why would you think you overpaid? I paid $20 for a manual whisk sweeper like this before - and it is rusty and not at all clean. They are good for cat litter.

Funny you should mention cat litter

Before I give this sweeper its "spa treatment" I gave it some tests. It was quite good at cleaning cat litter.
It's not good at cleaning upholstery, curtains and furnace filters however.
