One of my dream machines would be either an Anniversary Self Propelled Windtunnel with the turbo tool door, a hunter green self propelled ultra, or a Turbopower 7600 self propelled Windtunnel Ultra. I have seen 1 each at both Goodwils usually I go to. Picture 1 is the Anniversary Edition version I would like to find, Picture 2 is a re-manufactured model. Picture 3 is the older Turbopower 7600, and the last one is the non re-manufactured model.

I would really like to find one of the Anniversary models too. They do show up here in thrift shops sometimes, but I don't really have the space for one at the moment. I really like the colors of the ones in your pictures, especially the hunter green/tan combination.

I hope I can find the older Turbopower 7600 at either Goodwills I go to. Was the Turbopower 7600 sold at Best Buy or Sears? The Turbo Empower 4600 and the Turbopower 7300 used to sell at Best Buy when The U.S Turbopower series was still going on.

I seen stock of Self Propelled Windtunnel at Best Buy when I was only 3 or 2. The colors were purple and I think Hunter Green. If I find both the Turbopower 7600 and 7500 at both Goodwills I go to. I may combine the 2 to make a bagged equivalent to the Turbopower 8000 and 8100. But I'll be fine without a dirt sensor.

I don't like the Turbopower 8000 or the 8100 because they look like the inside would get very filthy and the filter would fall out. Below are 2 variants of the Turbopower 7600 self propelled Windtunnel. The older version is the one that I would like to find.

I recently got an anviersery (or i think the manufacturer label is missing) without the turbo tool door cover and it's a pretty great machine

I've seen someone mention Hoover Windtunnel ultra Model U6459-900. I googled the model and saw a low resolution image of it. I could make out a dirt finder above the headlight. I edited an image of the older U6439-900 version to include the dirt finder. This will be part of my big Dream Machine list and the the older U6439-900 will no longer be part of it . Here's the image, edited with MS Paint.

Dream machine

Iíve had 3. The original hunter green, a blue one and now the purple one. They are very good carpet cleaners and the new cloth like bags keep the dirt in the bag. The early ones had paper bags and leaked really bad on the other hand, they are very heavy, the belts are a beast to change, and the hose is useless. It is powerful and the hose is so short every time you pull on it over she goes, most time hitting your legs.. So I use it on carpet but nothing else. Oh, itís terrible on hard floors too
