Anyone else ever attach a power nozzle directly to the electric hose handle and vacuum close up and personal with the rug?


It's awesome!  So intimate.

I never thought you could do this! I've never hear or seen anyone do it before. I don't even think the Electrolux manuals illustrated it either. This is perfect for doing stairs where you need agitation to vibrate dirt from the cracks.

I used to do this with my Electrolux LE to vacuum the stairs, but now I use my Little Lux II on the stairs.

Tried it on the stairs

Wished I had a handle on top,something to get a better grip, then you could really clean those stair treads. Since it's powered it would probably out perform a zipbrush or one of those turbo wand brushes.

I never thought to do that with my Hoover Concept power nozzle.
Also, that's one calm dog!
