The Riccar Supralite Cordless, the most rebadgable upright on the market. There are more rebadges, but I do not have time to find them all. Are there anymore rebadgable
vacuums? I know some more, but I want to here your opinions.

Sanitaire Quickboost, Titan T500, Aerus Lite, David D2000, Cleanmax Zoom, Tornado ULW, and I'm probably missing some.

For a short period of time in 2007 (I believe), Hoover had a rebadged Supralite made for them.

There's also the Simplicity Freedom, but that's one of Tacony's own brands. Same thing with the now defunct Fuller Brush.

Black and Decker

Another vacuum cleaner worthy of the title is the Black and Decker Air Swivel.

I've seen alot of commercial vacuums sold under different brands but basically the same thing.

The Black & Decker AirSwivel and all the other things it has been called are made by Midea. I cannot help but notice that they tossed a better cyclone into the Eureka version.

The USA and Canada should require importers to include the Chinese factory name and city on the ratings plate so the consumer can know where their Eureka, Hoover, Shark, Bissell or whatever was really made. We’d then have a better idea which 3 or 4 Chinese factories are creating all these clones labeled with different classic American brand names. It certainly would clarify the source of dozens of brand names plastered onto all those rechargeable bagless stick vacs and hand vacs and robot vacs.

Agreed, Brian! Another issue this would help with is when a manufacturer discontinues a model & certain parts for it. That way, you would know whether a clone was made by the same factory & if you could take parts off a used model.

It used to really bother me when looking at ratings plates for store brand vacuums. If you looked at the plate on any Sears Kenmore vacuum, you would have to know what the model numbers meant to figure out which factory made the cleaner. With a handful of factories in Communist China now producing so many vacuums, it’s only right that the North American consumer can know the name of the factory and the city in which it is located.

Believe it or not, the best vacuum cleaner importing company about making it obvious what manufacturer produced the machine is Bissell. At the end of their serial numbers, they always include a code for the manufacturer. For example, E is Eup, S is Samsung, KCA is KingClean, MDA is Midea, and so forth. I have always appreciated the consistency of their data stickers.

What does mea at the end of the serial number stand for? I saw a robot one with that behind the serial number.

The most common rebadge that I know of.

As a matter of fact, the Black + Decker Air Swivel seems to be rebadged the most by Private Labels.

Kristi has really done well diversifying Tacony’s portfolio. Fortunately for those of us with stores, it is rare for a consumer (other than vacuum enthusiasts) to realize and research these types of things.

I'm a little suprised that nobody is talking about this.

Chris, you're right about Kristi Tacony Humes....yes she has done a good job of diversifying Tacony's portfolio and product offerings. So much so, she has run that company into the ground and made some DUMB decisions! Tacony, in my opinion, is a shadow of it's former self. And what used to be a company with respected products is now getting ridicule, namely from a certain member on here with a YouTube channel who is hated by many.

I can’t believe I just so happened to forget about this, so thanks for reminding me AmtrakSebo1997. Instead of designing unique products for each of their brands (Hoover and it’s commercial division, Oreck and it’s commercial division, Dirt Devil, and Vax), they decide to rebadge already existing ones, and it is starting to get ridiculous. Ten years ago in 2013 (feel old yet?), There were hardly any rebadges, but now in 2023, it is a different story. When will we get more original things instead of just rebadges?
