Was watching a vid. on this and it seems pretty awesome and revolutionary.
The power nozzle is double brush roll with the front brush being more of a rubbery cloth and the back brush has a squeegee affect mixed in with the brush.
Both rolls have an automatic comb that keeps hair and string from wrapping around and lets the hair go right up the hose where it should.

Seems pretty awesome, especially for hard floor use given the two speeds.

Anyone tried this ?

The power nozzle can be purchased separately for less than $100 apparently. I want to get one for my Central Vac system. Not sure what the voltage is on the PN. May have to get a transformer.

That head with a vented CV would be awesome. That rubber roll can buff hard floors. Doubting the brush roll on carpet can compete with Wessel-werks EBK360.

It picks up big stuff that no other power nozzle could do and without flinging it all over the place.

In my experience Shark powerheads have the standard voltage.
I have used the Shark NV340 powerhead in my canister vacuums.
Demonstration starts at 2:40

Super Good job, Mikko !

That Felix sounds quiet. It does a good job cleaning up.

Pairing it with the Power Nozzle really makes a good combination.

Thanks for sharing your video.

Fluffy brush rollers scratch floors by removing debris towards the floor scraping the debris on the floor.

Also if you're trying to modify it to fit a central vac keep in mind the 9 in cleaning path is too narrow to allow proper airflow for something like a central vacuum and will probably stick to the floor, making it hard to push.

I would recommend just getting a better bare floor tool.
The RD 285 will large debris and will only set you back $10

You mean Philips right? :)
It works well, but you have to be very careful when dealing with the mains power.
In these Shark powerheads there is a three wires. Center wire is for the lights, right and left are the main power.
Center wire connects to the other main wire.
NOTE that it is only one of the main wires powering the lights.
I can't remember which one.

Good luck :)

At least on carpet, I don't generally find the P/N pushes larger things around, my Riccar P/N has always eaten everything!
