1994 IEC Tristar DXL


I’ve got a real thing for cylinders with powerheads so when the opportunity arose for me to acquire this little beauty from another collector, I couldn’t resist (thanks Seamus)

I’ve had a much newer Tristar in the past and was very impressed with its performance but I always preferred the more retro look of the older models. This one dates to the mid 90s but looks much older, it’s such a cool looking little cleaner and performance is great. Rather than using genuine Tristar bags in mine, I use Numatic synthetic bags with the top cut off as I find they give much better filtration and are a lot cheaper.
