Hey all, i took a day trip to Seneca MO yesterday and while en route I made pit stops at vacuum shops on the way and met andy on here while in Springfield.

While at Fred's Vacuum Hospital in Springfield, I found this commercial grade Hoover Convertible Heavy Duty 700 model C1529 with the dirt cup.

Congrats on your latest Hoover find, Alex. That machine will really clean the carpet. It looks ready to go. I think you got a good deal since the only thing separating it from a Commercial model would be the cord. I like the color scheme with the chrome handle. Thanks for the pic.

That's awesome I actually have one just like that only not commercial grade same collar. Was only used about a month when was new no wear at all underneath.
