I found a nice Filter Queen at Goodwill today. It's a bit grotty; there's an issue with the hose being squeezed at the handle end; it's missing the short power nozzle cable from the handle to the PN connector on the top of the wand -- so I couldn't test the PN; and most of the attachments are missing. But the motor runs just as sweet and pretty as can be, and the canister was very clean inside. "The Price Was Right" so I couldn't resist.

There was also an "Ultralux by Electrolux" upright that was pretty clean looking but made strange noises and stunk to high heavens of dirty dogs. EWWGH!!

That is one nice UltraLux. I could only dream of finding such machines at my Goodwill.
