Owned two Kirbys. Damn things weighed the same as an S-Class Mercedes. Sucked like a $40 whore. Too hard to push around.

Best vacuums you can buy. They are lighter now and just as powerful.

\If I can't suck up 50mm ball bearings with it, it isn't powerfull enough

If it can't suck the eyeballs out of a parrot from 10 feet, it isn't powerful enough.

My parents have an early 90's Kirby that has the drive motor in it.  Easy to push, sucks up damn near anything and it still works today.

fark electrolux - had a Frigidaire refrigerator in which the compressor went out 5 years and 2 months after purchase.  I sent a nice letter stating that I didn't expect full compensation for it but I felt that a coupon or small rebate would be a nice gesture.  Got a very rude s.o.l. e-mail back

Fridges≠vacuums. Also, five years is after the warranty is out and when compressors can start to fail. It is random after five years and can never happen depending on many factors.

nevertheless i feel the company could have handled the PR much better than they did in my situation without it costing them much at all.

NOPE.

There were always 2 Electrolux, one in Sweden and one in the US.

In 2003, the Swedes got the rights to the name and the North American Electrolux became Aerus. The Swedish Electrolux is not even close to Aerus in quality. Aerus is the company that made the one your grandma had for 40 years.
