At first I wasn't sure if I ever saw these but I'm like 99% sure now it was one of these two I saw in a Home Depot back in like 2000. I've seen videos of the Mega Boss, but does anyone have the Ultra Boss? I absolutely love the gold and black coloring.

I once saw the 15" Ultra Boss being used to vacuum the entry mats outside a Marriott in Lexington, KY. This was 25 years ago, so the vacuum wouldn't have been very old (and I can't imagine it lasted very long in commercial use).

Have not seen one since then, either in use or brought in for service.

Even though Eureka wasn't known to make the best machines, they do have a bit of a following amongst collectors and people who have fond memories of one. It's comparable to the Maytag-era Hoovers in a way, even though TTi has gone out of their way to MAKE HOOVER GREAT AGAIN!

Eureka did made good machines, under the Sanitaire brand.

Sanitaire also had their own share of crap machines too. Reality is, no company is perfect. In fact, the company Perfect doesn't have any perfect machines. Hope y'all get the joke.

The only ones that are junk in my opinion are the ones that Bissell brought in after they had acquired Sanitaire. I don't think there was ever such a thing as a bad Sanitaire back in the Eureka days.

There's a video of one of these cool looking uprights. If I ever got lucky enough to find something like this at my thrift store id get it as fast as I can. There's also a Eureka the Boss (Bravo II model) Power Plus dirt alert that's really hard to come by.
