Oy vey my fellow members of the tribe,

Where do I begin? I stopped by the Goodwill crack house after work to see if they had anything. See, they sell vacuums of various shapes and sizes and most of them are the most clapped 👏👏👏 things in the world. I don't know why, but for some reason I chose to buy this Eureka Whirlwind Big Cup. Actually, I should say big cup of $%@!! I always found this vac interesting, as I remember seeing shark handhelds just bris these poor things to filth on HSN with suction demos. For the same reason I chose to acquire a kirby, fantoms, my Kenmore bagless cyclonic canister, and other atrocities, I just thought they look good. Anyway, I digress this thing is about as useful as tits on a boar! Idk how they sold so many! I mean the thing handed my kirby its ass with new filters (as if that is hard to do) but why did this have to be so cumbersome! And on the topic of filters, adding a hepa is like adding a life insurance policy to Anna Nicole Smith! Meaning that if something is clapped... it's clapped! I could go on to some extent about all this, but my arthritis is acting up, so anyway I want you to tell me about this and other atrocities of various shapes and sizes from the era

You sure that Kirby is at peak performance and adjusted properly? My Kirby will kick any bagless vacuumís ass! But yeah, those Eurekas are pretty terrible. Same situation with everything they made after 2002.

Hi Aunt Sylvia:
I wanted to say "thanks" for the platter of Tongue you brought to my recent Bris. We all laughed at your little joke "take some off the top". I'm recovering nicely, but I still can't get it wet.

I remember when the Big Cup came out. Eureka had a V shaped piece of plastic protruding down from the lid, with a foam filter (like a cone) that went over it. Then, a screen (in yellow) went on top of the foam. Leaked dirt like a sieve and clogged up worse than my cousin Abe after he ate two boxes of Matzo planks.

Then, Eureka went to a pleated paper hepa type filter thing. It worked somewhat better, and clogged somewhat slower. My favorite part about the blue one was the translucent color of the plastic. You could see the motor, brush, everything.

Maybe you can bring it to our next Passover, and we can see if it picks up the dirt from the sandals.

Oh Ms. Roxxy

My eureka has the pleated paper thing... and the last time I saw an atrocity this bad it was Janet Jacksoff having a nip slip. Or should I say atroctitty.

Sir! the language you are using is vulgar and unacceptable here! Vacuumland is also the home to many young underage members and your "colorful" language is not appropriate here! It's obvious you haven't read the user rules! Please do so!
I've reported this to our Webmaster as well!

Have you been on vacuum line lately ?This is mild language, compared to
some of the things that are being said are ten times more vulgar.
Example of the vulgarity that is now common place onvacuum land.

Also I think this sets of much better example for kids then "tic Tok "or other things that kids do these days.

I see royalfan had to jump into the discussion to start another argument like before with the car vacuum thread. S_Brisowitz, I found your post hard to understand and equally hard to read because of the swearing every 3rd word. I am not sure if you were trying to be funny in imitating a character from TV or you actually speak like that. If it wasn't a character roleplay, then I have found it completely unnecessary, as you are behaving like a kid that has just learned how to swear from other badly-behaved adults and is trying to be cool like them. It's very difficult to understand what point you were trying to make.

luxflairguy is 100% right, you need to tone the language down. I know this site isn't bible camp, but it's not a corner bar in Brooklyn either. Thank you.

Your Eureka is no match for my Aerus Electrolux! There is no way that Eureka could beat any high end vacuum, let alone a Kirby. Either your Kirby is severely crippled, or Jesus Christ came back as a bagless Eureka.

You made me laugh for three days this past summer at the Vacuum Collectors Convention. I think you're a riot, but I understand the sarcasm in your humor. You go girl.

I don't own this Eureka. Maybe not your Electrolux. But a Kirby any day of the week. Remember who is the "crazy Kirby dude "

Jesus Christ has risen as a bagless Eureka.

I somehow highly doubt that The Messiah has returned in the form of a bagless Eureka Whirlwind found at a trap house Goodwill. Donít you think that the son of God would come back as something a bit more classic, such as an old Hoover Convertible or Compact? Also, Iím not usually crazy...

I simply love your humor and truly enjoy your post. Keep it up! Naysayers stop reading if you donít like what you see. Aunt Sylvia obviously has much too elevated vocabulary for your taste! Also here is a pic of my bagged version of this machine. Itís actually a pretty good vacuum!

Love the humor! At least some people still have it! Here is mine almost new, and indeed they seem to be good cleaners, then again I havenít had any issues with any of the bagged ones I had in the past. All of the bagless ones however Iíd take that putrid cup and cyclone assembly off and put an AA bag in it and slap a bag cover on the front. Damn what a difference that would make! Iíd take this over a dreaded kirbeast anyday. I have 4 of them all working as they should and still Id manage to fill a bag in one of these quicker than the good ol boat anchor and boy my back is hurting just hearing about a kirbeast.

I also have a NOS self propelled variable speed envirovac.

Apparently using censored obscenities is just too darned 'adult' for some people lol

irl I curse like a sailor, I just don't do it here because it's against the rules and as a former moderator myself, I'll respect the house rules.

I love my Power Plus, had it since it was new. It was one of the last Victorys Eureka has ever sold. I wished Eureka could've hold on to those for a little longer, especially the Sanitaire versions like the SC4570 for example. I don't know if they've ever made the blue ones before, I'm aware that Sanitaire sold the Whirlwind model but I would've liked the blue color better if they did sold some.

Elevated Vocabulary

Believe you, me the vocabulary isn't the only thing elevated my friend! You guys are right I think there are members here that would benefit from a fresh Kotex and more Midol. God forbid anyone joke about anything anymore with out someone having a Social Justicegasm over something....

Vacuum design from this era of the late 90s to early 2000s seemed like limbo. How low could they go? I HATE many vacuums from this era because they are like nothing else. They give me bad vibes. They are all styled the same and many of them are very strange.
