I inquired about an RD-297 (similar to the Miele Airteq nozzle) and some "gates" for my turbine tool TK-284. Wessel Werk generously sent me not only the gates but a 3 brand new floor heads.

The most interesting of which is the new hft-265. It's kind of like a turbine brush for your hard floors, except it doesn't have a turbine. The brushroll, which consists of two rows of soft bristles and two squeegees, is powered by the incoming air. I've had a few chances to try it and i'm impressed so far! All the vacuum's airflow combined with an active sweeping action? It's unique and effect!

The brush on the bottom reminds me of the one on the bottom of my Dyson stick vac. Really does a good job picking up the fine dust of the hardwood floors. I'm sure if they market that aspect of the tool it will do well for central vac owners.

I have a lot of hard floors, do you find that this tool cleans well? Is it better than a regular floor brush? I would think a spinning brush would just scatter everything around, but I'm sure Wessel Werk thought of that, I may get one if you think it works well.

carpets

I don't think it's designed for carpets, however, Centec systems sells a power nozzle that is designed for both carpets and hard floors, it has different kinds of brushes on it, both for carpets and for polishing hard floors. Again, not sure how well it works, usually when something is made to do multiple things, it only does each one averagely well as opposed to something dedicated for one purpose. The nozzle is called the Ct10

Devin, that new Wessell Werk HFT 265 nozzle looks really nice!

One particular hard floor cleaning issue I can see this being useful for is dried sand, salt & the residue on the floor in wintertime from taking off boots from the outside. Looks like this new nozzle would give a very gentle "scrubbing" action to help not only remove the sand, but the residue as well. I think I'm going to look into this myself & give it a try.

Mike - I think you're right about the Centec CT 10. If I remember correctly, Panasonic made a promotional video on it, & it made it quite clear it was pretty much for area rugs & low pile carpeting only, so it's usefulness on carpeting would be limited & it really is meant more for floors.

ct10

I have lots of hard floors, I'm thinking of getting that nozzle and seeing if I can rig up some kind of universal adapter that will allow it to work with my canister vacuums with electric hoses. I do also have an electric central vacuum hose, but I prefer to make things as universal as possible so it works with everything.

HFT-265

Well I like the way it works, it doesn't really seem to scatter anything i'm guessing part of that is due to the squeegee behind the brushroll, and lacking a turbine the vacuum's airflow doesn't seem to be compromised so there's enough "pull" from the airflow to prevent particle scatter.

As for carpets it doesn't rotate on them at all. The rotation of the brush depends on three airflow channels two of which are on the surface so when it's place on carpet it doesn't get that seal it needs to force air through those channels.

It can struggle a little with larger particles as the airflow channels on the front are the only places with good clearance.

Compared to a regular floor brush I feel like this is a little more thorough than most. I like to think of it as combining an active sweeping motion with the airflow of a vacuum cleaner.
