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?

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

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.
