    We have a Giant Vac model 956. The unit is one year old and it is still sold new by Giant Vac. So I called 3 dealers and all of them said that the bag is not available anymore and their is NO replacement, I tried calling Giant Vac and 3 "tech" agents said the same thing, not available, sorry. We use the machine for getting around houses and tight spots and it works well, but not without a bag. Anyone have any ideas?

    Alright here is the deal, after 3 hours on the phone, 3 different dealers, this is what I have found, hope this help someone else.

    Giant Vac, vacuum model number 956.

    The original bag part number is 710
    The second updated part is 3000710, there are only 10 in the warehouse as of 4/1/2008 and the part is discontinued.
    The newest number that "should" fit is 3000210, these are still being mfg. and are the ones on the new machines.
