So , I thought I would share my collection of vacuums, I must have close to 500 again, I had so many at one stage, I bought one of every model of vacuum on our market Tested it tried oit out and then boxed them up again but decided a while ago to sell them off, I now mostly have vintage vacuums and a few modern one's , Some of the more modern ones are models not available Locally so I bought them overseas to see how they worked.
My oldest vacuum is a Electrolux 1129 from 1929. I willpost a pic of it soon
First up My 1932 Tellus , aka Export name for Nilfisk,
Joanne found this machine for me in a small shop in a sleepy seaside town called Fishhoek here in Cape Town. The tank section was badly rusted so We had it re chromed ( not cheap ) I do have those hoses for it aswell.
It had no wheels you The idea was you set it down in the middle of the room and cleaned around the room with it , then moved on to the next room.
It has a whopping 210watt motor so is well with in the EU energy consumption limits
. It has surprisingly good suction for its massive motor and is super quiet
