Thanks to Bill wood, I've added 2 must haves to my collection! Yes, a Dirtsearcher and Ranger.... from u.k. a few years back, I Ctually purchased 2 Seniors .... fell through in disaster. But.... these additions are wonderful. Thanks, again, bill.

The sales gone south were not involving Bill. He'd never be involved in a scheme like that. These will take their places with the other British products.

I just stumbled across Bill's video from 13 years ago, demonstrating the Ranger that you now have!
I really like the colors on that one. I know it's not exciting or flashy. But...neither am I! LOL
I have a $7 thrift store find Convertible in a nice blue, with that same hood style.

They are "British current" I have a converter somewhere. There are only about 10 machines that would "complete" my list

Hi John,

Here are my two most-searched-for cleaners as of last year: a 1987 Royal 662Z Heavy Duty Commercial and a 1982 Kirby COMVAC 1600, both for business use. I even got both of them for FREE!
