If you have only low to medium nap carpets, the Miele SEB 217-2 Powerbrush will improve the Miele canister's carpet cleaning ability sufficiently over the Deluxe Rug and Bare Floor Nozzle #SBD 285-2. A non-slip cog type belt is used to provide positive power transfer from the 0.5 Amp. motor to the 10 1/2" revolving brush roll. The belt and brush roll are similar to those in the Miele Turbobrush.
This newer SEB 217-2 Powerbrush is the same as the SEB 213-2 Powerbrush except for its wand connector with internal wiring. The wand connector, with a two-way swivel, mates with the SET 210 and SET 220 Telescoping Electric Wands. When you attach the wand to the hose and the powerbrush to the wand, all electrical connections are made automatically. Removing them is just as easy. There are absolutely no exposed cords on the hose, wand and powerbrush which need to be plugged in manually. All electrical connections are internal. This new direct connect feature and all internal wiring provides even more convenience and user friendliness. You can even use the powerbrush to clean small areas of bare floors by stopping the powerbrush motor and brush roll with a flip of the finger-tip powerbrush switch on the hose. To supply the electricity needed to run the motor, you will also need an optional electric hose and mating SET 220 direct connect wand.
This powerbrush can also be used instead of the SEB 217 powerbrush which is the same except it has only one tab on the elbow. It also mates perfectly with the parking slots on the Miele vacuums in their S300i and S400i series.
