Just seen this auction on eBay - thought it was something rare to see. Looks like a vacuum shop. Somehow they ended up with it looks like a couple dozen never opened or touched Hoover Windtunnel vacuums. Crazy find!

That's pretty cool that they have so much NIB Twin Chambers. I just found one the other day at a neighbors curb. I would buy but that's waaaay too much for me right now, and I could definitely buy multiple used Kirbys for that price. At least it's free shipping!

Isn't this from like the 90s or early 2000s?

 

And it's ..... bagless.    frown

 

Just because a product is brand new, doesn't by default make it desirable or valuable.

I had one of these

The height adjustment roller ps on the bottom are notorious for breaking. Mine did and it would burn the carpet when using the hose for attachments as a result.

It was ok, but the hose would not stay put in its storage spot when using it in normal mode and then the hose would flop around and there was still some suction coming from the hose. I finally just gave it to my housekeeper at one point when I was tired of it.

I had bought it on eBay as a factory reconditioned model.

Also the cover over the tool compartment broke off and it was just easier to use it without that stupid clear cover anyway.

Also the windtunnel channel typically quickly clogs with fuzz rendering it useless and you canít tell itís clogged, one has to disassemble the brush roll and the windtunnel chamber cover to discover that.

I used to keep the cord threaded through the loop handle to keep it up high.

I did like the power switch up on the handle but you could tell itís a plastic rod in the handle and the actual switch is down lower somewhere inside.
