    Sorry to say that this is not the worlds oldest vacuum cleaner. That Honor goes to Robert Alexander Taber of Slatington, PA. The oldest known vacuum is the Whirlwind. It was patented on June 8, 1869 by Ives W. Mc’Gaffy of Chcago Illinois and was manufactured by the American Catpet Cleaning Company of Boston Mass.

    The Whirlwind is a wooden, non electric upright that uses a hand crank to pull a drive belt and turn the fan.

    The Whirlwind is about to turn 141 years old.
