So, a genie has come out of his bottle and will grant you only one vacuum not available in your country plus the means to use it i.e. transformer, etc. What would you chose?

It can be vintage or current. If it is no longer sold new anywhere in the world, you can assume a used one can be found.

Personally, Id take a Dyson DC01.

Mine would be a Dyson DC02 Clear canister - but I would hook it up to the VOLT cordless power nozzle from Tacony. That would be an unstoppable cleaning team.

Vacuum I can't get here.....

Mine would definitely be one I have been after for what seems like FOREVER. I know for the past four or five years, I have been hounding Godfrey's in Australia and Sauber to send me one of their Excellence vacuum systems. We have something here similar to it in the US called the Aerus Lux Guardian Platinum.....but this thing is BEAUTIFUL, and I want one.....even if I could never use it, I STILL want one!

I would like a Vorwerk. They used to be available here, but none of the newer ones have made it over.

Is that a Sebo PN on the sauber?

I would also choose a Vorwerk - but Id want the canister Tiger cleaner with as many attachments as are available! Love that PolsterBoy mini power nozzle!

the vacuum I would choose

This was a pretty easy choice for me, I would choose the Electrolux 330 canister, I saw this on Ibaisaic's channel and it sounds like a great cleaner, and the motor sounds awesome, based on the sound I'm guessing it was a two stage motor. I don't think we ever had anything like this in the United States, even after Electrolux bought Eureka.

I honestly like the looks of these better than the American Concept versions.

Count me in for the DC02 Clear, too. When I wrote my OP, I was torn between the DCO1 and DC02. Since I prefer uprights, the scales tilted toward the DC01.

s31463221--That Sauber looks incredible, and I am rarely appealed by bagged canister vacuums. I had no idea there was any vacuum still made with a cloth hose. I see why you like it!

I'd love to have some strange Soviet machine, they seem odd and interesting!

Yeah, I use to think that about some of their cars. But in reality, they are pretty much junk. The Russians do favor insanely modifying older Mercedes when they can get them.


I did have a big Belarus tractor on my farm and although it was a fairly dated/Spartan design, there was no stopping it.....and it never broke down like all my neighbors' fodder.

Oh, I forgot: along with the Vorwerk Tiger canister, I would love to have that yellow Karcher canister with the rotating base and click-on, no touch tools! Kind of reminds me of the old GE tub vacs of the 1960s.
