I"m looking at an estate sale....found these...wondering how 'good' these might be since I don't know the brand/models well. Is that Riccar 500 one worth much? Is it a low level model?

Hoover : thought it was a hard floor cleaner....but I see bags in the back of it....or are those likely for the Riccar? Is this Hoover especially effective/good?
They both come together in this auction....I could use a good hard floor cleaner...the riccar would just be a bonus.

open to all opinions

About $30 or so should be a fine price for these. Not sure what the bags go to, they could go to the Riccar or something else entirely. They don't go to the Floormate. The Floormate I don't know much about, if they were originally good or not. Could be worth a shot to try out.

Riccar I'm not positive on the tiers. The is awesome. The hoover doesn't take bags it has water tanks. It's average reviews.

I have a newer iteration of the Riccar. I have a 2013 Vibrance Classic and it is a rock solid machine. I bought it new with the deluxe attachment kit for roughly $300 and it has been a great machine. My wife loves using vs her Hoover Windtunnel XL she bought in December of 2021.
