Speaking of Bissell, they bought Sanitaire from A.B. Electrolux who has owned it since the early 70's. I don't know what this means for quality but if they follow the same path as when TTI bought Hoover, Oreck and Royal it will all go down the drain.

The key to buying the original designs is not in buying the name anymore. If you buy a vacuum with the Electrolux name on it, you're buying junk. But if you buy a vacuum with the Electrolux quality, like the ProTeam upright, then you're doing good.

I wonder if Power-Flite is using the high quality Sharp hardware and Sanitaire hardware on their other vacs.

That machibe looks decent.

Remember all these machines are the same. They’ve been around since the 70s. Hoover and National Panasonic made this design all the way back then.

I saw an upright Electrolux yesterday that had the same outer appearance but a brown or gray. I'm color deficient.

No attachments neither.

It’s a design that’s lasted. Kinda like sanitaire, and Electrolux/proteam. I’m gonna try it. And the extra hoses can be added on it for $45 for the bells and whistles dudes

I think one of the mb’ers has this old vacuum
