Hello there, I have something that I wanted to share about that I wanted to get hands on a long time. It is a Fantom Cyclone XT!

Ever since I watched TheOriginalHDChannel and many vacuum collectors out there, I was excited to stumble upon an almost mint condition Fantom Cyclone XT. It is an improvement over the Fantom Thunder to what it should've been in the first place.

Not a single thing on this Fantom is broken, handle release pedal and cord clips are all intact as well as the brush roll being in almost new condition with all of the black paint remaining on the wood. Fun fact about this vacuum is that it is a 2001 model which means that Fantom got rid of the brush roll status indicator before releasing the Fantom Crosswind 600XL version of this machine with only a single cyclonic, leading to their failure. Only thing missing is the attachments which only came with the floor tool. Anyone with spare Fantom Cyclone XT attachments would be nice.

Congrats!! XTs aren't easy to find, let alone is such great condition as that one! I found one locally back in the winter but it was kinda rough (typical broke upright lock, missing attachments, taped chord, etc) therefore I didn't use it much and eventually sold it last month. I'm on the lookout for another nicer one like you got.

I found one in the trash about 4 years ago. I originally bought one back in 2012 from someone on AW and needed to store it with another collector after a few years. When I tried to relocate it, another collector whom Iím no longer friends with took the liberty to take it for himself. Oh well, this one is in much nicer condition almost mint actually! It will be staying with a few select machines.

I think this along with the Lightning were their best models. I like that they had more filtration, I like the Panasonic motors, and I like that I can shut the brushroll off unlike the Thunder or the Fury.

Yeah, Fantom Cyclone XT and Lightning were one of their best vacuums as the Panasonic motors would later be used in the Dyson lineup. I like the way it works and the two motor setup on it. I would be happy to buy some attachments if anyone in Vacuum land had a spare as well as a Fantom Thunder attachment holster for the floor. I did buy some NOS tools for a Fantom Fury for my orange 12 Amp one from a vacuum land member here. I have seen once a Cyclone XT in Tulsa but not near my area or any of the Fantom lineup. I'd like to get hands on another Fantom Fury like one of the later models and a Crosswind.
