Thanks to my good friend Adam Mercer, who loaned me this Perfect brand Battery Power Nozzle. And a huge thank you to Greg Palmer for introducing us to the perfect brand of vacuums and attachments at the last vacuum cleaner collectors convention.

I have always loved my model 77, it’s downfall of course was that it never had a power nozzle to be able to deep clean the carpet. With its general electric built motor, the model 77 has plenty of suction and airflow to power this copy of an Electrolux nozzle. This nozzle is different in the fact that it uses a ultra silent serpentine belt. It is so nice to use a power nozzle team canister, and not be encumbered by the electrical wiring in the hose and extension pipes. What a dream and a joy to use.

My model 77 is on the ultra rare, optional wheel a way, making it weightless to pull around.

It looks like a prototype alien television projector from the 1950s

Adam visited the vacuum cleaner museum on Saturday. We had tons of fun using the Perfect battery power nozzle with all kinds of straight suction canisters. Here is a eureka princess II Actually deep cleaning the rug for the first time ever. Adam looks so happy to be trying this machine with the set up

It seems Adam has good taste. I remember you telling everyone about him testing out. Kirby 2c.
The power nozzle literally has a battery. Do you plug it in to charge it or how does that work.

The battery on top of the powernozzle looks like it could hamper getting the nozzle under low items.BUT---it would give weight to the nozzle to press it into the carpet for a better seal.Many nozzles are just too light and merely skim over the rug.

I just thought it was a novel idea. Alot of lder vacs with a power nozzle would perform very similar to the newer vacuums. Old royals, old electroluxes, lewyt, filter queen, early compact interstate Electra's,.
It just adds a nice option. I looked this up it has pretty good reviews. The battery lasts one hour. Nobody really vacuums that long.
Blackheart was testing a proteam saying if it had a power nozzle it would be better. Here is an example of a power nozzle that works.

You could also

run your vacuum hose straight into the power nozzle and use for a very thorough job on carpeted stairs! Are they using these with central vacs, because I would think that's about as good as it gets!

I love nationwide as a supplier. At last year‘s convention at the vacuum museum, my good friend Greg Palmer introduced us to the Perfect brand. That is the company that is making all the HEPA replacement vacuum bags called V. A. C. They make this power nozzle as part of a central vac kit, or you can buy the power nozzle kit to be part of a backpack team as both an electric or a battery nozzle. The battery nozzle is offered all by itself for people like me who love vintage Vacuums made before there were power nozzles. It is so much better than the Volt from tacony.
