Nice to see that manufacturers are really working on new cordless, rechargeable power nozzles that you can buy to upgrade suction-only canisters and central vacs. Allows you to own a suction-only vacuum with low-maintenance lightweight hoses and wands and handles for cleaning when you donít need a powered carpet nozzle. Then attach these new rechargeable power nozzles for deep cleaning of high pile carpeting and rugs.

See the nice overview YouTube video below:

I agree, they're great! I had the Volt for a couple of years and it worked well but honestly, felt like I was vacuuming with an upright that had a hose sticking off the back. Makes sense considering it is based off the Riccar Supralite body. After that died, I tried the Perfect (lux) battery head but I didn't care for how it handled or looked with that gigantic battery sticking out the top.

I recently got the Wessel Werk EBK360 battery version and it's by far the best one of the three. It handles and works just as well as the electric version I've had for ten years. I use it with my hide a hose inlet as well as a Vacuflo Turbogrip low-voltage hose. It's nice to not have the bulky gas pump style grip.

While the Perfect battery nozzle is far from "Perfect", the heavy battery pushes the brushes deeper into the carpet. For open spaces, it's fine. But it doesn't fit under anything.

I absolutely LOVE being able to use my vintage straight suction canisters with a "Power Nozzle". I also have the Volt nozzle, which I don't care for as much but it works just fine. For low suction canisters like a model 12 Lux or a Model B Rexair, the Volt is perfect because of its suction boost from its fan.

My 1956 Air-Way model 77 sure loves his Perfect friend.

I like the idea of the Lindhaus nozzle I just wish they had integrated the battery a little better it looks....kinda ugly

I got a Turbocat head from a yard sale for $1, that plus my big box of extension wands so it can fit any hose makes a great combination. I love it.

I still would much rather use a turbine nozzle anyday over a battery powered nozzle, cordless just can't really cut it for me when it comes to cleaning an entire house with it.

You couldn't really use a turbine nozzle with any of the Lux or Rexair or old straight suction canisters as too much of the airflow wouldn't go to the rug. On central vacs like my SilentMaster, it has too much suction and airflow - a turbine head screams. The battery power nozzles seem to fill a cleaning void for both my Central as well as my vintage canisters.

Honestly, I've never been a fan of canisters. They work but they're just not my preferred type of vacuum to use. Even if they're non electric, I still prefer to use turbine heads as I'm not really sold on cordless powerheads. At least for the newer models because I wouldn't want to use something that's old and couldn't get parts for anymore. As far as noises go, turbine heads have never really been an issue for me, especially for the fact that I can lower the suction valve on the hose. When I get a house of my own, I wouldn't mind having a Turbocat kit. I once cleaned my aunt's neighbor house with a Vacuflo 566Q unit and a Turbocat kit, I was really impressed by how well it actually cleaned that house since the system had more power than our Beam we have.

I used to think that way about my really old vacuums, but one day I realized they couldn't put them in the coffin with me so I should just enjoy them while I'm here. If a vintage machine breaks down and there are no parts, I just go on to the next. If I used every vintage vac in the collection for 1 month, I'd be dead before they were all used for that month.

Yeah we just never really know when our time would be up here. I'll admit, I'd still play with some of my older machines for like a few minutes but that's usually for once in a while since I do have a busy life outside of the vacuum world.

That Miz Perkins video is excellent at showing the differences.

Personally I'm partial to the EBK360DC the swivel neck height adjustment and quick disconnect with your foot kind of put it A step above the rest.

I have the Lindhuas as well in the jury is still out.

Evan brought that cordless EBK nozzle to the last Vacuum Cleaner Collectors Convention. I'm sure I could get him to bring it again in September to the next one. I liked it. The wand felt heavy. Did a good job. I love my SilentMaster central vac.
