Hey all. long time lurker first time poster. I have a Sebo K3 canister and I am wondering if there is a better parquet out there for me. I want to get the absolute most fine dust and hair off of bare floors. I have the Sebo premium parquet which does a good job, I'd say 80%, but I want to get to 100. the ET powerhead does alright too, and sometimes I just keep that on the wand as the parquet can tend to push around fine dust with it's bristles and leave hair and dust embedded in them.

If the parquet is made for another attachment diameter, I'm hoping there is an adapter piece that will allow me to connect it to my Sebo wand.

The best configuration I found is a floor nozzle that has a full width suction channel in the front, combined with a microfibre mopping pad behind it. The cordless Swiffer Vac has this kind of set up using disposable Swiffer cloths. But you can get a similar configuration on bare floor tools from Tacony, Shark and Filter Queen.

If you don’t necessarily need a microfibre pad, I found the two best bare floor brushes were from Hoover and Panasonic in the 1990’s - these had a single bristle strip along the centre of the nozzle which allowed for full width pick up on the forward stroke as well as the back stroke. Kenmore Progressives and Whispertones also had this kind of floor brush.

thanks, I think the weasel unit rd285 (see pic) has a full width channel like you describe. I wonder if I could modify it with a thin strip of microfiber to trap fine dust.

Aerus/Electrolux (except the stock floor brush that comes with the Lux Classic)


Cheap brush at left (Not too good [performance-wise] but at least it still has horsehair bristles like the more deluxe counterparts [middle & right] brushes)

Here’s hoping that I’m not just giving out a million-dollar idea, but, someone ought to make a universal, air-powered attachment which works like the Dyson soft roller (“fluffy”) head. I have heard that those are excellent for dusting floors, and making an air powered one should be easy. I don’t think the roller needs as much torque as a brush roll does.

air powered tool and a few others

First, to use any of the tools I am going to mention, you will need this adapter which allows you to use standard 1.25 diameter attachments with Sebo vacuums.
A spinning air driven hard floor tool has already been developed, I have it and it works really well, kind of sounds like a motor cycle when it spins. It has a soft brush and a squeegee on the roller.
Then there is the Axis, this is also known as the Wessel-Werk turn and clean D330, this one along with the side winder which I will also provide a link to are the two best hard floor brushes you can get I think.
And here is a link to the Sidewinder 15 inch hard floor tool, this one works really well because you sweep from side to side as you move around so it cleans much faster.
And finally there is what Centec calls the Wave tool, this is also known as the Wessel-Werk RD285, this is a hard floor tool with large wheels and no brush, instead it uses two squeegees. This is another great tool, I love using this one.
I'm not sure what kind of electrical connection the Sebo hose uses, I think it may be nonstandard but not sure, if it uses the standard two prong mini plug that most vacuums use, you might also consider the Centec CT10, this is an electric power nozzle designed for hard floors.

Actually removing the front brush Srip from the genuine SEBO tool is savagely good!
You do need to buy this tool separately with a SEBO canister unfortunately.

Now for the rest of us who have a 32 mm fitting you might find this video helpful.
@cinema you hit that one out of the ballpark my friend!

Awesome I'm going to try removing that. what a great idea. I will do that tonight. My problem with that tool is exactly that, the front brush snowplowing and trapping hair and dust.

glad to help

Glad you found the post helpful. I have all of those hard floor tools and I think they are the best tools for the job. I have a Sebo adapter and they work great with my Sebo D1 canister.
