I recently bought a Sirena water filtration vacuum after seeing a demo for my friends Ritello. Not wanting to spend $3k for a vacuum, I figured the Sirena could be the next best thing.
So I love the vacuum itself. My issue lies with the hard floor attachment. I'm not a big fan of pushing around a bristle attachment to vacuum my entire floor. The turbo brush is great....on carpet. Terrible on hard floors, considering the brush roll kicks everything up. Doesn't work very well when not pressing the trigger either.
I've been looking at Wessel Werk attachments & the look-alikes on Amazon, eBay, etc.

Anybody know of anything that works well & is easy to push ? Something that preferably has wheels.

Wessel-Werk RD285

Absolutely. Get the Wessel-Werk RD285, rather than brushes, it has squeegees. It has large wheels in the back and will roll across hard floors very nicely. In my view it is one of the best hard floor tools available.

While I know you said you don’t like a bristle attachment…I’ve found using one dies the best job and glides smoothly and also protects the floors. Many are lasting bristles…I don’t recommend those…I prefer the horse hair bristles and double bristle strips are best. I’ve always like the Aerus (mostly older Electrolux) double sided combination rug and floor tool or for a tighter fit under spaces the single sided model is not quite as tall. Fits any standard 1 1/4 inch wands. With the combination tool you get the option of flipping the head over and using it as a straight suction nozzle for rugs or upholstery. Yes, you do have to unattached it from its neck to flip it over by pressing the buttons on the neck but at that time I also clean the bristle strips with the hose end if there is a lot of dust on them. There are no wheels which personally I find get lint in the shafts of them and jamb and also are noisy and offer the opportunity to scratch finished hardwoods.

The bristle strips really give you a complete clean because they sweep the surface as well as the suction. Not everything comes up with suction alone…things get pressed on the floor from walking on it and the bristles sweep it off. You’d be surprised at how much dust collects on hard surface floors and 2 methods of cleaning by the bristles and suction help you achieve a more complete clean in less time.
