I have had central vacs in my homes for close to 30 years and have never had an issue with the power brush unit. This one is a total disappointment. The narrow funnel to the air suction past the brushes kept clogging up with the slightest accumulation of carpet lint. I had to disassemble the unit multiple times to barely get half of the master bedroom vacuumed. My mother in law's trusty, ancient Hoover upright had to finish the job. And ably, I must stress. I will try to return or exchange this component. Otherwise it will be mothballed. The other components worked just fine.

This is now the second Turbocat Zoom I own (for use upstairs) and works very well. Hair definitely winds around the roller brush and you need to be pretty adept at tearing the head down to remove the hair, but it's fairly easy. Bottom line, I'd buy a third one if I needed to.
pretty good for a non-powered unit, but the brushes get slowed down by the carpet which reduces the effectiveness. still pretty darn good considering theirs no power chord (which is a pain...)
Love the new unit. it's working great.
Does an excellent job.
The unit picked up better than the original unit that was with the vacuum cleaner package.
We LOVE our new TurboCat! It's so much lighter than the old original vacuum set we had. The vacuum head and the attachment for hardwood floors are easy to maneuver and switch out. We find uses for all of the attachments as well!
Works great. Just like my old powermate! Wish I had gotten one years ago.
Better than the original
Works well enough but the high pitched whine is unbearable. This should be mentioned so people can plan ahead and buy ear protection.

Much better than the kit that came with central vac unit when installed. I love the fact that I can turn off hose without disconnecting from wall. Great improvement! Thank you.
Easy to use and powerfull
Very nice and functional, I will be getting a couple more in the future
Just used it a few times but it seems to do a very good job.
I'm very happy with how well this works and how easy it is to use.
The new head works great, does a good job, but the decimal level has to be above that allowable to retain your hearing. It is so loud that it actually hurts your ears.
Works well but very noisy
