As you can see, I found a lot of stuff. All for $10. The portable has a half broken switch, the eureka has all attachments but needs a new belt. The pixie is fine and just needs a cleaning. The portable and pixie are my first in my collection, and I have a few esps.

If you have esp's you probably have belts. The Porta power switch should be found easily. That is a real nice score for sure.

Wow, never seen a Hoover Portable decorated like that. I've seen a Pixie many times but just never pulled the trigger on adding one yet. I kind of ho-hum about it.

Nice haul

Ten dollars well spent. The ESP should clean up nicely,enjoy your new hobby!

Estate Sale Vacs

This would be close to equaling some of estate sales I have been to.The Eureka is great on rugs & carpet and the Portable can do everything else.This Pixie is Hoovers best as dirt goes in bag before air goes through fan.Does Portable have all attachments?This was one of the best storage ideas ever.With proper supplies and adjustment and service, if needed, these could still clean any house or car.

It actually does have a full set of attachments. it still runs like new it just needs a cleaning. most of the attachments tho are tattered and in awful condition so i may get new ones.
