Hey all,

See pics attached. Looking at this on local pages, says it's a Sentria but the design is the Avalir. The data plate underneath says it's a Sentria G10E?

Also does there look to be a crack in the fan casing underneath the machine.

Thats because the sentria and avalir are basically the same machine. The only real difference is the color scheme and pattern scheme and the name. Otherwise its the same machine that weve had for almost 18 years, on a platform that we've had for almost 34 years. Both sentria and avalir use the same motor, as does all other kirby's, same headlights,same power nozzle belt lifter, and so on. In fact I'm curious to why kirby went back with the plastic belt lifter on the avalir 2 instead of using the chrome one that they've been using since 2006 (original sentria).

Armature is upgraded to spin at a higher rom at the same voltage. The transmission has a few upgrades as well.

The belt lifter on the Sentrias are plastic as well. Theyíre just a shiny plastic thatís made to look chrome.

Kirby is proof positive that the more things change, the more they stay the same. And that's not always a bad thing.
