This is I believe the entry model Bissell powerforce bagged 3522 made January of 2002 I own. This machine I have owned for 2 months and it's in excellent condition. Anyone got any questions or info on this machine let me know.

I like that it's made in Korea.

You can still buy one of those brand new today as the Big Green Commercial BGU1451T.

The Bissell Powerforce Bagged models started in 2002, so this being from january 2002 it is one of the first ones ever made!!!

Speaking of Bissell, I saw a Powerforce and Cleanview II at the thrift store today. Both were made in 2004 in Korea by Samsung. The 2004 ProLite bagged machine was still there.

I didn't buy them. I don't have any carpeting at my place, so they are of no use to me.

That machine sure does bring back memories of when I used to buy all the trade-in vacs from the Kirby and Rainbow sales offices. We would buy every single one, then sort them into 'throw away' and 'rebuild' piles respectively. We rebuilt all the door to door machines along with the expensive retail machines like self propelled windtunnels, power-mate kenmores, etc. No one wants to buy a rebuilt sweeper anymore (the age of Covid has brought that to a halt). I now sell only new vacuums.

They sure take all the vacuums out of my Goodwill faster than you can blink - and those aren't even rebuilt either.

That's the Eureka Maxima in the Contour style from the picture.
