This is my brand new Aerus Electrolux Classic. Right after this picture was taken, I ran it around the house for its maiden voyage, and it's been in rotation with the other 29 vacuums at home ever since.

I have a DC-18 I'm not sure I still have the box it's been in daily rotation for way too long to remember. It's just handy.

I have an Aldi Easy Home vac and a Eureka and a Dirt Devil still sealed in their boxes and never touched.

I have some other vacuums that still have their box which is cut down and folded up in my garage roof, but not sure what they are. When I first started collecting I also threw away some vacuum boxes.

I have a Lime Green Kenmore canister that is new in the box. I only took it out to listen to the motor, but other than that it's never been put together or used.

Oh man that's super cool to have a New Old stock Dyson DC 18! Especially considering how fragile they were.

I have a whole closet full of vacuum cleaner boxes filled to the ceiling.

Really Alex, fragile? I had no idea, nothing has ever broken on mine but I'm not hard on things either.

It's hardly new, but the only vacuum I have in its original box is a Royal Prince 501 from the mid '80s. which is complete in its box, including all the paperwork; however, the box itself has seen better days. It was missing the dusting brush when I got it, but I found I had one on hand, left over from a little shop vac I used to have, that is identical to the original, except for a slightly different color—taupe instead of white.

In addition, I have a couple of Kirby tool kits, shampooers and a sander in their original boxes.

@suckolux The carriage assembly is famous for breaking on those DC 18s. One of the shops I worked at in the past used to carry them by the case. It's not really whether you're rough on it it's just the design and the lack of quality material.
Again this is what makes it so cool to see in a collector's hands functioning!

Good to know, thank you for that heads up! Again daily driver most of its life for gosh it must be 15 16 years? Nothing has ever broken.

I have a Royal Commercial metal upright with the shake out bag and infinite screw-type height adjustment that I have new in box. Bought back in 2015, used it maybe a total of 1 hour, modified the fill tube to take generic Kirby Sentria HEPA Cloth bags, then put it back in box and into storage.

I also have a new Kenmore Elite 700 Series Ultra Plush canister I bought brand new from Sears in 2016 just before Sears left Canada. I don't have it's box as I put it into a storage container. Again, used it for about a hour total, then took the bag out and stored it with all it's extra bags, filters and accessories. Glad I got one before Sears went under, it's a really nice canister and a good alternative to a new Miele C3 canister for 1/2 the price.

I have bought 3 NIB vacuums of the corse of 4 or so years, The first one was a green sears exclusive Hoover Windtunnel bagless but thanks to my brother that one is now in pretty bad shape :/. The second one I bought was a Bissell Lift-Off Revolution Turbo from 2005 that was kept in storage it whole life and now is now being preserved by yours truly. And finally I recently bought a Hoover Windtunnel Supreme from 2008, at first I was a little disappointed because it was a TTI windtunnel so the build quality was crap and there are injection molding marks everywhere, but its still a NIB supreme.

My Electrolux teal model L

It came to me NIB. I unboxed it, added a repainted cordwinder, and put it on display. It's been powered up but never cleaned with. The factory electric hose is airtight and has never seen any dirt. I pulled this image from my prior post.

I have this thing...

A Dirt Devil hand vac that my mom gave me for Christmas back in 2006 or somewhere around there.
It was pretty useless. The hose stretches to only about 24" and the air-powered brushroll jammed as soon as it touched anything.
Suction is pretty good though and it has a HEPA filter. Only attachment is a crevice tool.

I was about to get rid of it but I suddenly used it in a car restoration project back in 2011.
I had no room to use a shop vac or Kirby, so this thing's small size was a win.
It sucked up crud scraped/wirebrushed from the engine and chassis, paint overspray, and other garage debris.
It went through one filter and after replacing it and cleaning it up real good afterwards, it is ready for house use.

If anyone here wants it for whatever reason, I would be happy to pass it on. I have other cleaners that are much more suitable for my needs.

NIB Hoover hand vacs on Saturday in North Canton.

I have several others (about 6,7) NIB 25 vault cleaners. Do they count? They don't have boxes, though.
