These two machines I had saved from a lady two weeks ago now, I work at a grocery store and spotted them in her truck, she was going to take them to a trash drop off center.... I saved them, both run great. 1990 Kirby G3 and 1993 Royal 882

Very nice! Glad you saved them! Those are vacuums that will last the rest of your life.

Both great vacuums and should do well on your shag carpet!

If I were her neighbor,

I'd be all Gladys Kravitz at the window watching that pickup truck coming and going."Abner come quick,she's loading the grand piano,Abner!"

Taking those two beauties to the trash drop off wouldn't even be on my list of options,just sayin'.Glad you saved them. Probably around 3k-3.5k combined when purchased new,the waste...

agree the hardwood does look very shaggy.
Those are solid vacuums and built like tanks.

Nova candy - great scores and rescues of the Kirbys and Royal!
Let us know if you have any questions or issues with them, as there is lots of experience on this board. The G3 is a carpet-taming beast with the self-propulsion.

I never thought I would like the D80 but the color just grew on me. I have a D80 awaiting resto. In fact the color is slowly coming around again... I might have some orphan tools for this model but not a full set. If you find a set that is missing some items, PM me and I will see what I have to see if I can complete your set in the making.

John, let me know more about your tan tool set. I have a D50 that I think needs a set (If the OP is not interested in them).
