Heavy, Monstrous vacuum cleaners

Such a chore to push around that I make my friends help. They all get a turn with the boat anchors. But they all clean well...

Too much plastic! Heres some real weight, and to some extent I believe they are heavier than a Kirby G series!

Heavy huh?

The powercast was probably the heaviest domestic vacuum i've come across.
I also recall the advance carpetwin as being super heavy.

Hoover

lesinutah's profile picture
The Hoover 913 is 33 lbs. I don't have access to my pics there backed up.
The heaviest Kirby is 24-26 lbs. The Hoover could be used as a demo tool.

For vacuums that are heavy for me to push on carpets, that's a tough one. There's not one that would come up in mind. Although I would not like using any vacuum that are hard to push on carpets. But for vacuums that are definitely heavy to lift, there's a couple that comes out of mind that I do like. They're both wide area vacuums. One is a Nilfisk Advance Carpetriever 28XP and the other one is a NSS Pacer 30. If I had to pick one that would be my favorite overall, it would be the Pacer. Love the switches on the handle, very simple to service or repair, dual suction motors that's like using a central vacuum all in one, and it's built like a tank.

Super sweep

lesinutah's profile picture
I have that. Mine is 1984 one of last produced. I'm thinking 27 lbs was it's weight. It's so close to a tradition but the cord is commercial and bag is too quality. It's easy to push I vacuumed a week and a half ago with it. I'm currently needing to put brushroll in it I just serviced. Bearings were tight but bristles are basically new. It does have led light and amodel fan. It's a beast.

Les,

According to this 1970 brochure, the Super Sweep actually weighed 16 pounds.

I had one of those. They are the cheapest, heaviest, underperforming piece of crap since the Regina Housekeeper. The entire AirSpeed line sucks, and everyone should know that. I've owned and used multiple AirSpeed units, and I hated every one of them.

Id add that heavy-metal Electrolux XXX with all the metal tools attached. That assembly must have weighed 25 lbs!

Most die-hard Eureka fans like the vintage pre-1990s cleaners, not the cheap crap made from 1998-2019.

Electrolux AB (Eureka parent company up until a few years ago) and Aerus Electrolux LLC. are two separate entities, and have been since 1930. Aerus makes the good vacuums, Electrolux AB Sweden makes the crap.

Let me just say I love my two Hoover U4003s. I hate modern Hoover though. So many bad experiences with them breaking down only a year after purchase. I wish Hoover didn't sell out.

You want heavy? No pic unfortunately

A medical facility I worked in years ago had a Tornado Carpetkeeper commercial vac from the '60s or '70s. This was when Tornado was the brand of Breuer Electric. (Part of Tacony since 2007)

Single-motor, 14" or 16" wide upright. You needed to be Godzilla to push it on the low-pile carpet. Needless to say, it didn't get a whole lot of use.

There was a floor scale nearby, so I weighed it one day.

That beast weighed in at 49 pounds.
