TK2 Proper Replacement?

How does this compare to the old TK2? I had a TK2 growing up (Beam branded) and really wanted to find one for my central vac (just a few low pile rugs - a turbo brush would work fine). I remember the TK2 working really well. Does the TT27 perform the same? Better? Am I just hopelessly nostalgic? Thanks, Dave in Toronto

Answer:

The TT27 turbine head was the industry replacement for the TK2 turbine head. It was a welcome change - it cleaned just as well but was less bulky. Some of us old-timers understand your feelings from the past and it is great to hear from someone who is catching up and getting back into the game! The Turbocat was the TT27 industry replacement but requires more suction power to spin it properly (meaning a 3-stage motor vs 2-stage for those wanting to get technical). And of course, we'd recommend a new complete electric attachment kit if the amount of carpet called for it. After all this information, it seems the TT27 is probably the safest and best choice for you.

Cleaned, Not Spinning

Cheryl/austin. I have opened up this item to clean and removed MUCH dust, dirt, hair. I have put it back together and brush will not turn now, however suction is MUCH better. All parts are in, nothing left over. Is there a diagram that I can study to see where I need to re-adjust? Belt looks good and still has tension (on the gear).Thanks!

Answer:
That is odd. If no or little movement it may be that the turbine was put in backwards. The fins have to be a certain direction for the air to travel and spin them. Please let us know after you try flipping it.

Hayden 2400 Compatibility

will the tt27 work with my hayden 2400 central vacuum system.? I am unable to get the rubberbelt for my hayden

Answer:
The TT27 will fit any wand with a standard diameter of 1.25"

Hoover Compatible?

I'm looking to replace my power nozzle for a hoover central vac system. Will this work? I cannot find the part I need on your site so am hoping this one may work instead.

Answer:
Yes, this works will all central vacuums. One thing to consider is Hoover sometimes used proprietary hoses. If your older tools have a neck similar to the TT27 then your hose will work with it. The TT27 has a neck that a metal tube is inserted into without any clips.

Shedding Carpet Suggested Brush?

What's the best brush to use on new carpet that is shedding A LOT? I have a Nutone built in vacuum. Thx.

Answer:
It sounds like your carpet is delicate so you probably want a vacuum head that has height level options such as the Ace. It adjusts the most and comes in a complete kit. All vacuum systems are compatible with Ace. Read the text here to understand how to choose the correct Ace Kit. http://builtinvacuum.com/ace-kit/index.html.

Preco Vacuum Replacement

Our very old Cleanmaster Central Vacuum has a Preco Power Brush PB-450. Will the TT-27 Air Driven Power Brush work as a replacement? The picture shown looks identical to the Preco. Jerry, Elkins, WV

Answer:
Yes, the TT27 and TurboCat will replace the Preco vacuum. Simply swap them. You can also replace the hose and get any of our complete new kits. Air Driven kits will fit right in and if you want to clean the carpets deeper then consider an Electric kit. The hose fits into your inlets and an 8ft pigtail cord plugs into a nearby inlet. http://builtinvacuum.com/hoses/upgradetoelectric.html

Add to Old Vacuum System and Hose?

I have a 19 year old Beam central vac system and I would like to replace the deluxe carpet attachment but I'm not sure what will work with my older system. Is the TT27 Air brush something that will work and is compatible with my system? Thank you Silvia

Answer:
Hi Silvia, you are thinking correctly. Any air driven brush will work with your system and hose. There are a couple to choose from including the TT27 here http://builtinvacuum.com/brushes/airpowered.html. Then you can always upgrade your hose and nozzle to electric for super cleaning. You don't have a change a think in your system! You can see them here http://builtinvacuum.com/help/beam/kits.html

Cleaning Hair Off Roller

I just received the TT27 Air driven Power Brush. It works well but after the first use there is LOTS of hair wrapped around the brush. Is there a way to clean the brush without taking the whole thing apart with a screwdriver? It did not come with any cleaning or use instructions. Thank you, Adair Long Valley, NJ

Answer:
Hi Adair, please use a sharp knife to lift the fiber up and off the roller so you can pull or cut them.

TK2 or TK270 Vacuum Replacement?

Replace TK2 or TK270?

Answer:
At one time we used to sell the TK2 power brush from Dupro in Switzerland. This brush was not made by WesselWerk but their TK270 which we also used to sell is quite similar in function and design.We do not have any replacement parts for the old TK2 and the TK270. We recommendation replacing these nozzles with the TT27, TurboCat, or an electric powered hose and nozzle (which fit all applications).

I need a new power beater for a SMART Beam Unit. I don't know how old it is as we just moved into this house. Thankyou.

Answer:
The TT27 is a very introductory, simple brush. If you have any carpet you want cleaned well we suggest an electric complete kit or at least the air driven TurboCat Deluxe kit.

Answer:
Sorry, this old-timer brush is being less supported and the brush is not available, at least not through us.

Not Spinning Well

I have a 14 year old ThoroMatic that I just replaced this brush (regrettably before I found your site). The new one does not work as well as my old one - the brush barely spins and sometimes doesn't spin at all. It has been cleaned of debris so there are no visable constrictions, and is only a few months old. Could this brush be defective or is it just the way that these are made these days? Are there any fixes for it?

Answer:
It should spin okay but it really is 70's technology and low quality. If your hose is old or your system weak it will not spin well. In the future we highly recommend the electric hose and head kit. It fits right into your system and is leaps better than this brush.
