My dad got this for me at the thrift store and I can already tell it needs restoring. The brush roll is hard to spin so I think it needs brush roll bearings and the belt is hitting against something and it smells bad. The bottom wire wrap around grip is coming off, the on/off switch is so flimsy even if you nudge it, it will still turn on. But other than that I'm gonna take it to the shop this Sunday. So if anyone got any info on this machine let me know.

One rare machine

I do say this machine has something good to offer to me because I'm surprised my local thrift store has rare Vacuum cleaners.

Looks like a "parts bin" special. Might have started out as being a bagless machine and was adapted to be bagged just to use up extra supplies for a small production run. Maybe sold through discount shopping channels or something. I've never seen one of these before, and with that tiny bin I don't think you could do much cleaning with it without having to empty the bin (replace the bag?) several times.

I got it service and is ready to be used

If you guys wanna see a video later of it in action I would love to share it.

Someone say this machine isn't rare just a rebadged Maxi

I've done more researching and trust me it's rare. I could not find any for sale and I only found one on images.

I knew it looked like a bagless vac, that is exactly what they did. They converted it into a bagged model by repainting the cup and redesigning the chamber and taking away the brush accessory.

They also painted it yellow and renamed it the "Maxima".

I love my eureka lightspeed, especially my 1994 simplicity 5000a.
