Any suggestions where I can find replacement brushes for this. I think it's also referred to as the "Micky Mouse" model because of the head shape.

I had a full set of brushes and I cannot find them anywhere!

Does your machine have the hexagonal shafts or the round one? If you have the hex shafts, I might have a spare hard floor set. I know that I don't have the carpet brushes.

The shaft is round with a cross pin...I think I may have the model number incorrect. I'll have to check!

That's not a 5460

The 5460 has a smaller housing that are formed around the brush profile. I suppose you could call that "mickey mouse ears". I don't have spare brushes for your model. I've seen your type of brushes listed on Ebay from time to time.

It's a model 5240, but it's not "Mickey Mouse-style". That would be the shape of the actual 5460 (see eBay photos below).

Here's a link at Hesco, Inc. for the 5240's brushes ($13.92):
