That IS amazing. Now can you tell us how it works? Is that big tank full of cleaning solution? It must be very heavy if it is!

Looks rather unwieldy and top-heavy? High centre of gravity...must be tiring to use?

Cool find, tho!

I have a hard time believing it ...

I have a feeling that this is not a genuine Filter Queen attachment. All though I have never sold Filter Queens, they have been one of my favorites. I have owned several in the past, and have seen several demos, and this has never been part of any demo. Could it be a third party (bojack) attachment? I don't think I would trust it because I would think that the FQ would have to be grounded to use it. I looked, and can not find any documentation from Health-Mor on it. I'm no expert on Filter Queen, but I see a picture of Bugs Bunny holding up a finger sign saying "Something's Rotten In" and pointing to Denmark on a map. I could be wrong, but that is my gut feeling.

The GE floor washer is the same thing that came with our bottom of the line Swivel-Top in 1961, I wish we had kept it. We gave it to my sister, who knows where it went. Worked really well too.

Brad, last Fall I found the exact same Aqua-Queen in a London Sally Ann. I had a hard time believing its coloring, size and weight but the box it was in clearly said Filter Queen and the copyright FQ crown symbol was in several places. At the time I just thought it was so ugly and bulky I left it there. Silly me.

Did some googling and discovered some things I didn't know - Filter Queen still makes the exhaust mounted Circulaire, Air Deodorizer, Massage Brush, and strangest of all The Vibrator.
"The special Vibrator attachment produces a gentle, soothing vibration. Ideal for relieving minor aches and pains. Attach to the hose end for use!"
Their text, not mine.

Also of note.
"Tip: Never store your Filter Queen Majestic with the hose attached to the Power Nozzle wand. It puts unnecessary strain on the hose and could cause it to eventually tear. Take a look at our wall mounted hose holder!"

I have two filter Queens a Princess 3 and a majestic special edition, These machines really stay very clean internally and last for years.

If memory serves me correctly the idea behind the aqua queen was you used the sprayer and sudser to soak the carpet with foam, scrubbed it in then you could use the aqua queen to draw it and the dirt out. It was also for picking up water spills etc. It didnt have any provision for spraying solution on the carpet itself though. The liquid that was picked up stayed in the tank instead of going into the machine.

Flea Market Find

kloveland's profile picture
Yesterday I passed on a Filter Queens at a local flea market. I am not familiar with Filter Queens but it was white and had the matching PN.

But I did pick up a Kirby G4 that was in nasty condition for twenty dollars. When I got the Kirby home I had discovered the previous owner had run the vacuum without a bag and broken belt. To make a long story short I spent about four hours yesterday disassembling, scrubbing, sanding and polishing the Kirby. It runs great, but the self-propel only wants to go in reverse because the slide assembly on the handle is stuck from rust and I canít get two of the top screws out. Otherwise the motor sounds great with no bearing issues. Remarkably the fan was in good condition.

The flea market had a lot of plastic vacs, Bissell, Dirt-Devil, Fathom etc. I over looked those in a heartbeat. I just couldn't let that poor G4 sit in the sun.

Along with other members I tend to stick with the vacuums that I have the most experience with. The Filter Queen would have been nice but I donít think it would have been as easy for me to work on. Plus I already a fan, belts and bags for the Kirby.

Super old thread I know

I know this is a super old thread, But my Canadian model Filter Queen 700 made in 1985 has a sticker on it saying for Dry pickup only unless "Aqua Queen" is use in conjunction, So it indeed was a Filter Queen product

I have the General Electric version

And it really DOES pick up water with the air from the blower, then you can dry the floor with the warm air!

There is a vacuum shop in IL. that has one of these still in the box with the paperwork. Every time I go there I swear I'm going to get it but then I never do. Maybe on my way to the convention this year I will stop and get it on my way and we can all play with it at the convention.
