So after testing the carpet cleaning ability of the Dyson DC40 mkII, Sebo Felix and Kirby G6 (avalir brushroll) I am amazed.
So 40 grams of salt for each vacuum and one forward pass. Then using the Kirby with the dirt meter to show what they leaved behind.
Kirby brushroll slowed a bit and this was rubber backed rug, not ideal for the Kirby.
Pictures show what was the end result.
Sebo Felix left 6 grams, Kirby 8 grams and Dyson 12 grams.
I am stunned!

On solid back carpets you will have to adjust the height of the Kirby a notch or so higher than on open back carpeting.Try that and see how your Kirby does.In this situation you will have to experiment with the floor nozzle height of the Kirby.

Yes that's true. I have to try test it with different height settings.
