I used to knock over our DC01 and sit on the bin and ride it like a horse (wtf) and I used to be shit scared of it cos of the bin black rubber seal and the max line was like "the eye" :/

I also had it next to me when I watched TV.

I remember feeling vibrations whenever it was on, thought the thing was a beast.

I was thinking about my mom's vac when I was growing up.  Didn't know anything about it, started with a google "1980 vacuum wood grain" and nailed it immediately and found a great post on vacuumland  covering it:

That takes me back.  I used to sit on it and ride it around while my mom cleaned up. :))

Awesome, thanks! It sure feels odd doing a hermes to myself!

Could you PM me your email address and I'll forward the label email over when I get it. Don't worry about it until next week though, I'm in no rush and if you drop it off today it'll only sit in someone's van for the next 3 days!

Interesting refurb and an amazing 75 in your pocket.

These often used to come in for repair back in the day because a rear wheel kept falling out, usually on the pedal side. A cracked chassis at the wheel arch, which gradually got worse, was the cause and a common fault on the 600 series. A new chassis was quite expensive even then.

There's an electrolux switch as found on these machines, included in the parts I'll be sending.

I got paid today, weigh and measure them and send me the details, I'll pay the postage and have them! I'll share them out amongst the community for postage, I have lots of other bags and stuff to sell, so I can incorporate it with that, and probably find lots of useful bits to keep!

Packed and measured parcel, all fits neatly into a 44x32x32cm box. weight is around 6kg. I say around as it's bathroom scales I've used, but it's certainly well under the 10kg next price.

Ah maybe it wasn't a BRL21... I'll check the one I have at home later! I bought it too long ago for it to be on my purchase list I think, they were in the old style Q packaging

Because, amazingly, someone was selling 12 BRL21's, so I grabbed 2 (one for a contour I have had for a while...). (Stu, if you hear of Q finding loads of these, get them! The 12 sold out within 2 weeks @ 13 a go plus postage...)

BRL21 is showing as in stock on Q. I can do them less than that. The notes say it is just the outer brushroll though, which seems to be without innards? They also say Hoover Turbo 1?
