sean curry had one. they are very noisy and more akin to a lint remover than a turbo brush like a kirby heritage had. they are air driven, but not much torque so cant deep clean.

Ahh, so by the sounds of it, they did not sell well, and were more of a Novelty than anything.

Those turbo brush tools are probably rare in the US, I seen these on the UK Hoover’s like the Conquest cylinder on the internet, but I would love to find one in white color to match my vintage Hoover tool set soon!
