Great topic.  :thumbsup:

We did a couple of those a while back and got similar money for them in auction. I was hopeful they'd fetch more actually as they aren't bad for what they are.

Thanks! I quite liked it tbh. Very light, picks up well, even groomed a bit. For quick vacuuming I can't find much fault with them!

Meant to put that in a quite, sorry Madrat, but yes, all I think of is the marathon informercials and David Oreck!

Sadly Oreck are owned by TTI now, and it's quite funny as most of the american collectors called Oreck cheap and nasty, yet now their about to become even cheaper and nastier, they are suddenly backtracking a bit!
