So I've sold Kirby's, royals, Electrolux Dyson and rainbow. I know how to sale vacuums.
I'm looking for advice on non highly coveted vacuums.
Sanitairre s667 blue line model. It has new fan new brushroll led light. It originally had blue bag but I put red arm and Hammer st bag. Im wonder if when selling if people really care t arm and Hammer bag. It's scratch free immaculate condition.
What is a good price to sale.
The next is eureka imperial upright 7 amp motor f&g bag. New fan belt brush roll. It pulls more cfms than sanitairre.
Last is rsl4 riccar Supra lite 4. It's in excellent condition. Replaced fan and it runs like a machine.
The eureka has a few scuffs on hood but all paint scuffs are cleaned off.
I'm just wondering price point to sale. I know how to show and explain vacuum. I can sale it I also can market it good on ads.
I'm just looking for advice and guidance.
The eureka I'm pretty sure with polish compound and buffer would make top no dings and polish up.
The supralite I'm going to change to led. I just didn't turn it on. I have only used riccar HEPA bag and inside bag is dirt free it's a clean vacuum.
I have a royal backpack vacuum. The pic I'll bump up. The only thing it lacks is 2 extension attamements for hose but I have ones that work.
I'm just looking for price points and everything I mentioned before.
If anyone wants to make an offer on any of them let me know. I'm trying to liquidate vacuums and get onto other vacuums I have.

You can get a brand new classic Sanitaire with ST top fill bag for around $250. So I’d say a refurbished Eureka/Sanitaire/Dial-a-Nap upright could easily fetch $100 including a pack of bags for the buyer.

Eurekaprince question?

On an older eureka model 2087a ESP Brandywine color.. which is the proper speed to operate it on? Normal or ESP? The cleaning performance obviously is outstanding on either speed just was curious to see what was “proper” by eureka standards hehe 🙃

I guess it depends on the depth of carpet and the amount of noise you want to make! :-)

For low pile carpets, you probably don’t need the ESP setting. For thicker, deeper rugs, the more powerful setting probably helps to bring out the deep down dirt and to move it up into the bag. But the ESP setting is louder, so best not used when someone is napping.

WOW The Riccar was made in 2006. Held up pretty well.

I got it off ebay. They sucked up a pen and it melted part of the fan and the seller had no idea. I knew either belt was off or fan issue. I put new fan and belt cleaned off roller. I have used it some but I'm pretty sure it's the original brush roll and it's barely worn. The HEPA bag collar Tacony started after 8000 series vacuums is one of the best I have seen. There HEPA riccar bags they are the best bags I have ever used. It's not even close. I do love Tacony and there vacuums they are the best quality and they perform. I still wish I had my vibrance. I like Kirby but hose on the back and the powerful aggitation is hard to match. Kirby can out agitatate but putting in cannister mode I just use another vacuum where vibrance click snap it's vacuuming with nozzle.
Once collection is thinned out considering a lifetime belt metal roller riccar I just had good experience even though it's the same as simplicity. I'd spend some money on it.
