My father in law pulled a vacuum out of the trash, cleaned it up and gave it to us. It worked great and we used it for a couple of years.

DH is a trash digger at his job. It's a bunch of construction stuff and tools though so I don't have pics. He works at a nuclear power plant and they have such high freaking standards, and they're constantly throwing away perfectly good stuff. One day he brought home an entire trunk worth of tools they were throwing out because some moron had been using power tools in the rain and shocked himself, so any tool that wasn't grounded had to be replaced.
