Well this little gem popped up on a local buy and sell group for all of 8 dollars. I long ran out of room at my house for any more vacuums but couldn't pass this one up. It's in excellent condition, everything works as it should, and even had the attachments in the little garage in the back. It's too bad these are known to be fragile, it's a very nice machine to use and surprisingly effective.

I assume its because they used ABS plastic. Power Macintosh PC's from 1995-1997 were made from that, and in this day in age, any time you opened the case something new would break off it.

Just have to be gentle and have a lot of superglue handy!

That would be a super nice machine if it were made of metal and took a bag ;)

Thanks Cameron,

I have had one for quite a while but only the unit and hose. I gave up looking for the rest and assigned it to my under work bench vac.

Now that I know how fragile they are, I will be even more careful with it.
