Hey everyone! I thought I would show off a vacuum I got at Goodwill for $9.99 that just had a bad belt! The ESP stands for "Extra Suction Power." Odd, because it is a low suction, high airflow design. The top is scratched to pieces by the former owner. My only complaint is that the cord is pretty short. Built cheaply, but it vibrates the dickens out of the floor!

I think the triple filter is as follows:
The (originally) paper bag.
The coating inside the cloth bag.
The cloth bag itself.

The "V.A.C." HEPA bags are fantastic, but I think the company may be out of business. Their website doesn't seem to exist. Does anyone know of the fate of "Vacuum America Clean"?

Certainly not built cheaply! It is a tried and true design that dates back to the Hoover Convertibles of the 1950's. These are excellent vacuums and not much ever goes wrong with them other than the belt. First vacuum I learned how to use was an Eureka ESP! Mine was all white with a red pinstripe, cannot find any photos online of it.

Nice find.

In terms of deep cleaning ability machines like that have few competitors.

The cheap part for me is the handle. The whole thing is hollow and feels cheap.  I do like the old fashioned and simple design.

Right?  I have been wanting a Sanitaire and just stumbled across what is effectively one!

I've always loved those Eurekas. Not only just the performance and the quality of it but the looks and the colors of it look very cool in my opinion. Eureka is my overall 2nd favorite vacuum company of all time.
