It's called the BS 360 but probably 360 ECO if it was ever sold here. In 1986 according to my research, the 360 came out with an upright that's the improved dual motor commercial upright over the 350. The 360 has been a very hot seller. It was used in alot of commercial applications including the Whitehouse, there's even a photo of one being used there. They've come out with a few revisions including the newest 360 that's been out for a little while now. John Van Leuven who's the CEO of SEBO America told me that this would've been the potential replacement of the Sebo 370 Comfort that's since been discontinued. Unfortunately, Sebo didn't give the opportunity to import these here. And Sebo hasn't even brought back the 370. I really liked the 370, it was in my humble opinion the most favorite and best upright Sebo has ever sold here for residential use. I think they should've kept making that model, even if it was for limited production run just like what Walther did with one of their firearms. But I was really excited about the possibility of importing the new 360. I've compared the Windsor Versamatic (360) and Windsor Versamatic Plus (370) side-by-side and I liked the 360 more. It felt more solid, the switch was higher up for a tall guy like me to turn the vacuum on and off, and I liked the stair cleaning handle better. Not too long ago I had an opportunity to try out the newer Windsor Versamatic of the 360 and they've made some improvements that are also true with the new 360. They've switched from a two-stage Domel motor to a single-stage Ametek motor that's similar in performance but less wattage and sounds different. The brushroll now shuts off in upright position like the 370. And they've upgraded the post filter. So technically I can get one of those newer Versamatics but despites the costs, I want to have the residential 360 model because I like the color(s) more, I'd like to have a longer warranty, and it would've came with cloth bags. This would've been my new favorite vacuum from Sebo since I've always been a big fan of dual motor commercial uprights with a one-row brushstrip. And I'm still hoping that maybe someday we could have these imported over here. I know I would've bought one in a heart beat and recommended it.

In today's age with the prevalence of hard floors it's kind of absurd for a residential dual motor machine to not have a brushroll on/off switch. I like the 370 design a little more due to it's bag change system it's a little easier in the 370s, I know they've discontinued the 370/versamatic plus so we'll be seeing a change to the versamatic at work when the pluses die out.

Honestly, these don't really need a switch to turn the brushroll off. Mainly because these would've been terrible for hardfloors. Especially with the brushroll spinning. Instead you can just fit a extension hose with a extension wand and barefloor tool, it would do a much better job. I definitely agree with you on the 370 about the bag change, though I don't really mind changing the bags out on the 360 since I've done that multiple times on the Versamatics. Another thing I liked about the 370 more is that it had a carrying handle in the back. And I liked that it stored more attachments on-board. Again, I wished they still made that one.
