Vintage Sebo X1: The first UK model of Automatic X
« on: May 09, 2020, 09:21:41 PM »
Just thought Id share with you a machine that arrived today. A Sebo X1 in brown and cream. This was the UKs first ever offering of the Automatic X machines, dating back to 1991. They obviously did something right, given the Automatic X is still made today, albeit with a slight facelift here and there, but the design remains the same. It still works wonderfully and will only require minor TLC to get it like new again.



Seen here with its larger friend, the Automatic X2. Identical bar having a larger cleaning path.

I apologise for the photos being the wrong way up. Anyone know how to correct this? Ta!

if you are using windows,  before uploading view it in photoviewer and use button rotate 90 - it then saves it.
also depends what device and op sys you are using.
The only way to fail is not to try.

Thanks- I was uploading from a mobile device. I think its because the photos were taken portrait. I should have rotated them prior to uploading!

I corrected the images in the OP with those Ryevac did.

We have one of the brown ones as well in our museum. I want one of the teal ones (Co-op blue).
