Hello James...

I know we have never talked before but I am curious about something. Kirby was made in England as well? Or did they ship it over from the US? If not then how do you run your machines? I am sorry for being so inquizitive but I have been thinking about this and wondering how this would be done.

You have a fabulous collection. I too have had my Vacuettes and now I do not have any, I traded them for other machines, now if course wishing I had not. I will hope that someday I can find some again. I also do love Kirby very much and have many, many,machines not as many as you. I do not have the newer machines as much, I stop around the Blue Tradition.

I would love to chat with you offline if you would like.

I love the additions you've made to your photo gallery. How did you ever find a gold Ultimate G? I didn't know they were still producing gold-plated models. Is that a UK version? Love the new Sentria as well.

Hi David,
New kirbys are made in the U.S (In Texas)As all 240-220 volt kirbys and shipped to the uk. Kirbys been in the uk since about 1973ish.They Did have a big warehouse over here for distrobution to the rest of europe but it moved.
All my other kirbys are 110 volt and I have a step down transformer to run them.
The Gold ultimate G series is a 110 volt.

My friend ken won a Gold Generation 3 in the early 90s but it got stolen from the service centre.
