I pulled a newer Singer canister out of the trash yesterday. I was wondering if bags are available or what can I substitute. The machine says "System 90" and its made by Ryobi, in South Carolina. Too many other scratches thru the data plate to get more info. It looks like a Panasonic canister, but I have yet to try to see if the Panasonic bags would fit. Just wondering if any one out there knows a little about these newer Singers. Its complete and runs great. Just one of those oddball cleaners that I want to play with for a while. I'll see if I can snap a pic later to help describe it better.

I'm slowly answering my own questions...

The bags are SLL-1 and I'm able to locate them on the web. Not all that cheap of bags mind you. I did notice that Eureka style "V" is very close. The cardboard collar is a tad wider. I'm going to try and cut about an 1/8th inch total off the Eureka bag collar and I think it will work enough for me to play with the machine some.

Is your Singer the grey colored one with the powernozzle? I remember a Singer canister that was sold at Target in the 80's and I kick myself for not buying one. Can't wait for the picture!

Two Tone Grey


The Singer is two tone grey and I don't have the power nozzle. First chance I get this week, I'll snap a digital of it to post. Just got back from North Canton and need to catch up on things here. This Singer is a cool machine for a newer vacuum.

Thats it!!!

That is the Singer that was sold at Target in the 80's. That one is another for my wish list.

That's the one here too

That is what mine looks like except I have no plug for a power nozzle. There is a knockout in the plastic where the power nozzle cord plugs in on the machine. Of course, being a trash find, its not in the best of shape. Good enough though and maybe it'll be better once its cleaned up a bit.

That is one Singer that I have never seen before. Use to be a regular Target shopper too. I just wonder if it was only sold in certain areas? Any idea of when it was made. Sure is a beautiful machine. Terry

I remember these in the early 80's at Target. They also used to sell the upright with the green accents and the little singer logos all over the bag. I always wish i would have bought the Canister though.

Hi Marty, Back in the 80's I shopped at Target on a weekly basis. I am sure if they would have had this neat machine I would have wanted one too. I just wonder if it was only in certain areas? Thanks for the information. Terry
