Wow! 300 amps!! That IS state of the art!!!

"Have you ever?!" as Billy Lipman would say.

This is a cool machine tho, never seen a straight suction Electro-Hygiene in this color scheme. Is it a factory rebuild or?? Taking note of the matching hose and attachment carton.

Unless the seller has edited the text of their ad since you saw it, it actually says 300 WATTS not 300 amps. This looks quite modern for a straight suction machine, and actually quite a good deal all round

Didn't Royal build these straight suction machines for large hard floor areas-and the nozzle lips had brushes on them-they were for basketball courts,stage floors,auditorium floors,etc.Thought they built them well into the 80's.

Then they have edited it. When I saw it, it stated "300 amps."

Well as I said it is a very cool machine, love the beautiful red and blue colors, was just stumped because I had never seen a straight-suction Electro-Hygiene or Royal in that color scheme and with a newer motor housing. This must be a pretty rare bird then. Where's Jeff Schroff? I'm sure he can fill us in on this.

And Check out the Shetland beneath it with the Kirby-esque Nozzle

Dont suppose the little girl comes with it for that shipping price!

Yes I spotted it too, having first looked at the listing for the rather grotty Electrolux, the next exciting project suggestion for Crevicetool!

It looks to be in really good nick & original but would he ship to the UK?...oh really, best not email him; I've already spent a bomb this year on machines..and I don't think the parents would be too pleased to see it..
