Bearing or Bushing?

On the TurboCat II, is the sleeve flange actually bearings? The beater bar seems sluggish when spinning so I wondered if the sleeve flange (bearing) needed oiling or replacement? Or do you just oil/grease the bar?

Answer:
The ends of the roller brush on all versions of TurboCat are simply rod and bushings, not bearings. The ends do not take any lubrication. Take apart the entire brush to get to the turbine. It may have hair in it or be severly cracked.

Hello Harvey, the Plus model is the same as this one. All the different names for the same looking brush have no differences mechanically.

Will this work?

Our Turbohead "Cat" (Vacumaid) is about 10 Yrs. old which has developed a noise during rotation that sounds like a bearing/bushing failure about to occur.It appears to be in the shaft support/brush area, do you think if I replace the shaft supt & Rod/bushing I will solve my problem. Also, is lubrication w/WD40 a good thing or are the bushing designed to run dry ??

Answer:
10 years usually gets a replace the whole thing response from us. After that time it is hard to troubleshoot in this way. Also, the bushing is a dry one.
