When I purchased my ZA2 back some time ago they did not have this message. I guess Electrolux is putting pressure on them to not sell them to the US anymore.

I was just offering to help if there are a few people who really want these - I am in the UK and they will supply to me. I don't make a business of this kind of thing - so I could only deal with small numbers.
If someone really wanted to get one of these and didn't mind about no US support/warranty, etc. as it was a UK sourced product then I could oblige.
It would be a bit like me buying a Roomba from the US and the local choice is expensive and not all the models are available here.
There would need to be a little built into the costs to make it worth the hassle for me.
How may were you thinking of?
eqwalker wrote:Debugger, thanks for the offer. I will keep you in mind. I was thinking about an extra charging base for my ZA2, so if I decide to get one later I will definitely give you a shout. Also, if any of my other family members decide they want one, then at least, we can get one. Thanks for offering to do this for us.
newmom wrote:Yes, this is great news, that we have a European nice guy on our list that is willing to help us. Could this work for filters too? I don't like the idea of having to pay 7.00 per filter which is what Electrolux quoted me on the phone. I plan to reuse my filters but I am not sure I can do that for the next ten years, never tried before.
eqwalker wrote:Well, the ZA2 arrived and after I built a power adapter to plug the charger base in, I let it charge up and started it up. I have to say, the Trilobite is definitely a good performer. It has much more suction than the Roomba and does have this certain amount of superior intelligence to it. It is very well constructed and performed well on my med. pile carpet. Other than it trying to dock to my subwoofer after it completed it's cleaning cycle, it operated perfectly. Even after several attempts to dock to my subwoofer it finally gave up and went on around the wall till it did get back to it's charger. All in all, a fine piece of equipment. And, of course, for the price, it should be. Although, I will say I paid less than the Amercan version of the Trilobite even getting it from overseas.
