My Gran used to call hers a Ewbank (spelling?) but I presume that was a brand?

Apparently you can get electric carpet sweepers. Me, I'd call that a hoover.

I'm glad someone else remembers it being called that HC -for a moment I thought it was a name invented by my slightly mad Scottish Granny

Just don't go looking for a Eubank cos you wouldn't want him picking up your fluff.
