Pros: Power, Tech Drive, Cord Length
Cons: No attachments (but I can buy them eventually)
I actually own the g6 2001 limited edition. Unlike many other people, I didnt pay anywhere near as much as everyone else. I only spent $20. I didnt get any attachments though. For $20 though I can not complain.
As far back as I remember my family had a kirby. My grandfather had a kirby tradition. I then got a Kirby Heritage 2/ Legend. Then one day while surfing craigslist, I found this kirby g6 for sale. I immediately called the person who had it for sale. He told me he still had it and asked when I could come get it. I told him I would be right over.
When I got there he showed it to me and stated he was selling it for his friend. He told me he knew nothing about it. I was fine by that. I paid my $20 and left. When I got home, I vacuumed out the bag real good and put a bag in and went on my way.
I could not believe it. There was nothing wrong with it at all. This vacuum was amazing. I felt real bad about ripping this guy off, but he didnt know what he had. I went later and bought more bags. At the kirby shop, they had the regular g6 for sale for $700 used. I couldnt believe it.
The power this vacuum has is incredible. It sucks everything up. I have 2 dogs and one of them sheds like crazy. The kirby picks up the pet hair with no problem.
The cord length is very nice. I can plug it in one place and do my whole apartment.
The power drive feature is a big help. As many of you know, kirbys ar every heavy. With the tech drive feature, it feels like 5 pounds. Ha Ha Ha.
