I've found a vacuum in my utility room. Since I almost never use it, I thought it was a good idea to see how it works... So let's go!!

There's several parts in this vacuum:
The reservoir which contains the dust and the debris.
The engine (the most interesting part. It will be torn down, don't worry...).
The pedestal (we'll take a look in it later).
And the power supply.
By the way, the reservoir contains 3 parts (from the top to the bottom): the housing, the container and the filter.
And the top if the engine. Nothing interesting... yet. Just notice the power: 4.8V and the intensity of the output.
Now, here is the innards of our lovely vacuum.
More precisely, we can see several wires (to connect the charger light (2), the switch (3), the engine (2), the power wires (2)).
In green: the engine, very noisy but it's the core of the machine.
And in orange: one of the 4 batteries (4*1.2V). They look like C batteries...
