|The Miele turbobrush contains a rotating roller brush (activated by the air drawn through the head) that works to loosen the dirt in the floor while collecting lint and thread. This tool works best on cut pile. For use with S2000-8000 series canister vacuums.|
Some manufacturers have the tendency to replace some of the appliances or tools they release on the market while others simply choose to improve them and sell both the original version and the improved one at the same time. Miele's STB 205-3 air-driven turbobrush is actually a better version of the STB 205 turbobrush released on the market by this German manufacturer.
The improved versions of cleaning tools do not always match the same vacuum cleaners as the original ones. The STB 205-3 air-driven turbobrush matches quite a few Miele vacuum cleaners, namely the S4 Carina, Antares, Capella, Sirius, Luna and Orion ones, the S5 Ariel, Pisces, Callisto, Gemini, Venus, Aquarius and Capricorn ones, the S2 ones and, last but not least, the S8 ones. Its parking tabs are designed to fit all the Galaxy vacuum series.
Air-driven cleaning tools have a first contact with the surfaces they clean which consists in loosening the dirt on them for easier vacuuming. The vacuum cleaner produces a certain amount of suction and it is this suction that loosens the dirt. The same suction cleans the hair and the fluff around the hair, leaving any surface as clean as possible. The amount of suction produced by the vacuum cleaner is determined by the type of surface tackled, each surface having different requirements. Hard floors, for instance, usually have lower ones.
The ideal surfaces to tackle with the STB 205-3 air-driven turbobrush are low and medium pile carpets for its bristles are stiff yet safe. There is no need to worry about scratches or scuffs when using this tool because its design minimizes these risks. There are no beater bars, the material the bristles are made of is gentle and safe and there is also a wrap-around buffer strip for additional protection. Beater bars are usually encountered with the upright vacuum cleaners in the Miele catalog, so there are none with this tool which fits the canister ones. The maneuverability of the turbobrush is increased by the two rubber coated roller wheels, which are soft and safe for the surface they sweep over. Finally, the back squeegee strip collects the dirt it encounters so that the brush roll can do its job more easily. Some turbobrushes require the fitting of an electric hose in order to reach their maximum potential, but the STB 205-3 turbobrush does not belong to this category. It is not a direct connect brush, so it can do its cleaning even in the absence of an electric hose.
With a 10.5-inch cleaning path, the STB 205-3 air-driven turbobrush is a high quality floor attachment which eases the cleaning of low and medium pile carpets and gives them an incredible finish. It is as safe as a turbobrush can be and designed to remove all the dirt and dust that may settle on this kind of surface or deep in it. Ready to tackle both rough and delicate carpets, it is a top recommendation for a Miele canister vacuum cleaner.
