I've never seen anything like it. Where would you connect the hose or attachments?

But this is an electric "giant?"

This thing is so big, I don't know who would want to use it!! Where do you think it would be used?

was used in homes

like many old things they were enormous,& heavy.look at the first cell phones they were the size of a box of saltine crackers.heres a 55 hp engine it makes the semi tires that are carrying it look small!!!
