Rics Twinturbo Special. The Twinturbo is a particular fav of mine because it was the vacuum I grew up with as a child. My mum has owned one since 1985 and it's still her main vacuum.
The Twinturbo series was essentially a more refined and modern looking 500 series which had been around since 1971, underneath the curvier body remained the motors and innards from the 500 models. There were countless different versions and exclusive models over the years this Special being one of them. There was also a Deluxe model with variable power and a bag check light, a video of which you'll see elsewhere on my channel. The Twinturbo lasted until about 1991 when it underwent another slight restyle and was renamed the Turbo2, it carried on until 1995.
They great vacuums, quiet and powerful and are so reliable and easy to maintain. Although the Electrolux 2-brush activator isn't quite as effective as the Hoover equivalent, it still does an excellent job.
