Question about Kirby G4 Bagged Upright Vacuum

2 Answers

I currently own a kirby heritage II, and love the cleaning power it has, but....it is becoming harder and harder for me to manuever it, do to arthritis. Are the newer kirby's any easier? If so, how much? If not, what vacuum would you recommend for me?

If you are good and familiar with a Kirby, the new generations are self propelled with a transmission BUT may cost you over $1500 US. They will be very familiar but easier to push, yet still vastly overpriced.
You might want to look for a deal on a used or refurb Generation 3-4or 5 or the new G6 in an estate sale or local newspaper. many people buy one then realize they can't run them and sell them off.
Or consider an easier running unit. if you want great quality, mainly for carpet, look for A sebo UPRIGHT

Not sure where you are located but try the local auction houses on auction nite the g6 machines are easier as they are self propelled and ive seen them going for as little as 50.00 and as high as 250 at second hand stores. if you are in florida or georgia youre in luck as there are dozens of these auction houses. i recently purchased 2, legend II machines and a G4 paying 35 and 40 for each

You should be able to. There's not enough difference in the Heritage models to make them incompatible.

I need to install a mini emptor on a Heritage II Kirby


I actually figured this out on my own. Just removed the rubber out seal between the bad and em-tor, then used a screw driver to gently pry the bag out of it's grove. The wire part of the hose actually unscrews from the em-tor. Reverse the process to install the new one. Gotta love Kirby engineering.

As long as it is Kirby belt - you should be fine. Make sure that the shaft is clean and that you do not vacuum something greasy or wet (grease or oil will lubricate the belt and shaft will loose the grip -heat up and burn). Make sure that brush roll spins freely.
I am assuming you know how to put the nozzle on properly (if you not sure - go here)

Good Luck

Many years ago I was a service engineer for these machines in England they were actually made by a company called Scott &Fetzer in the USA and Branded KIRBY or CIMEX.
