Is there any discernable difference between the later self propelled Windtunnels? The most common seems to be the blue (I think it was also the Anniversary Model at one point), a gray, and a sort of shale or alien green. I know the alien green seemed exclusive to Sam's Club.

There are a few other variations that do not have the dirt sensor, one being a metallic red that I saw last summer, wish I had gotten it.

Some versions seem to have a little window that gives a little red indicator to show if the setting is on brush on or off. I think that version may have had a few more height adjustments than the ones without, which just have 3.

Another change I noticed is some use a different dusting brush than the usual one, which I believe is shared with Dirt Devil machines. I'm guessing the ones with that brush are late production, and TTI was trying to consolidate attachments.

I'm on the lookout for one of these later models, I've seen a few in thrift stores over the last few years but none lately. These also seemed to show up on the curb A LOT about 5-8 years ago give or take. I never see them anymore, they were at least better than what I see now, which is always bagless uprights, and the cheapest models from Hoover and Bissell at that!

I did see a blue Windtunnel on FB Marketplace a while ago, right in my area too, but they wanted $60 which was steep to me considering if I find one at Goodwill it'd be $12.99 most likely. The ones on eBay have gotten ridiculous in price, like $129 or $219 for used ones and then another $50 or so for shipping. You could have bought them new cheaper than that when you add in shipping.

I see those blue sp windtunnels all the time in thrift stores in my area. They were quite popular. I saw one yesterday at a thrift store in BA.

I wish they'd turn up here again.

Some of the later blue Windtunnels did not have the clear door in front of the turbo brush holder.
