I've heard about this one before but I did not know if someone was thinking of a different variant until now! Found an old photo online of a more deluxe Windtunnel called the Windtunnel LS, a rarer and more translucent variant of the Windtunnel Limited, also in a very nice green. Does anyone on here have this particular Windtunnel or know someone who does? Share photos if you have one!

Where did you find this photo at? I've been looking for pictures all over but never had any luck.

It was on an old flickr post cause I was looking trying to find a picture I once saw of this unusually colored Elite. Here's the link to the post, this is the only photo.

That's the one! It is probably perhaps my most favorite Windtunnel of all time and one of my favorite Hoover vacuums ever. I love the color, the switch is on the side which adds reliability, no electronic dirt sensors and check bag indicator light which also adds reliability, the hose is easier to clean out, and it doesn't have the attachment door which I've seen break.

Speaking of the nice green color, seldom do you see the gren Widepath Breathe Easy translucent. I have barely seen it outside of some old stock photos and a few sales. Its mostly the blue and red ones I see. But someone uploaded a video of it and the color is just really nice. Its actually the very vacuum that got me into vacuums!!!!!!!!!!!

Was anything more said about how rare this particular Windtunnel is? So far this picture of the discord server and the one on Flickr are the only photos i've ever seen of it.

I don't know how common or uncommon it is, but I have an opportunity to buy a translucent red WindTunnel Plus, Mach 2.7.
I haven't seen it in person. Supposedly, it runs good, has all the tools, some spare bags and filters, and the owner's manual.
It sounds like the price would be in the neighborhood of $30.
Honestly, the only reason I'm even considering it is because of my obsessive/hoarding tendencies. Any upright is completely impractical for me, since I have all hardwood floors.
But, seeing all of the posts about WindTunnels lately has made me appreciate them more.
Can you tell me if this is a common version, and if that sounds like a good price?
I'm just concerned that, if I bought it, it would be another vacuum like my Fantom Thunder that I never touch. Of course, the Hoover is bagged, which I much prefer.
I get so confused and overwhelmed so easily!

No. But I presume these are rare given the fact that thereís little to no videos on them on Youtube.
