In previous posts, I've read that that Kirby vacuum cleaners are good for backdusting rugs. With this in mind to save wear on my Sebo I recently bought an old Kirby Legend II – it was a bit grimy but I'm not complaining as it only cost me £1.20. Anyway it's cleaned up nicely and I'm impressed with the suction. At present, to be more effective when backdusting, I pull out the suction hose on my Sebo bs36. Could someone please tell me if it is possible to cut the suction in the Kirby and if so how?
