Listing Detail Tabs

This is a decidedly rare Australian made Tecnico model 339-A floor polisher, circa 1948.

Initially a radio company, Tecnico decided to make the bold decision to raise capital and expand into other consumer goods that were in demand by the Australian public. In addition to radios, Tecnico developed vacuum cleaners and floor polishers, and then lawnmowers, for domestic and export consumption. The UK firm Pye bought a half interest in Tecnico in late 1955, and by the end of the decade, the company changed its name to Pye Industries.

This unit is completely original, with original cable and plug, and still in working condition, although it has been in storage for some time and when testing we noted some sparking in the motor (dust, probably).

The rubber surround for the brush heads is split and cracked as shown. One brush head is missing (we are attempting to see if we still have it.)
