The Most Important Difference
The biggest difference between air driven brushes and electric brushes is the size of the opening that the air flows through. Air powered brushes, such as the Turbocat, have a narrow opening of about 5/8" compared to the 1-1/4" opening in electric brushes. The air powered brush requires a smaller opening to force the air through to spin the turbine and roller brush, but it means that less items and debris are able to pass through. Everything that is vacuumed up in an air driven brush is passed through the turbine fan, meaning that larger items (i.e. paper clips, small rocks, etc.) can jam or even break the turbine. However, the air turbine brushes are not weak- a considerable amount of force is required to stop one that is operating properly. Electric brushes have a non-restrictive air passage, so more objects (including items like quarters and popcorn) are able to pass through the brush while it delivers more air flow to the carpet.

How Carpet Dirt is Removed
There are three factors needed in order to adequately clean carpet and remove embedded dirt. First, debris is exposed by opening up the nap, or fibers. Second, you need air flow in order to channel air from behind an object to get it into the air stream when passing over the carpet fibers. Third, some objects cling to the carpet and need bristle action to actually pull them away. Without all three factors, your carpet will never truly be clean.

The Electric Advantage
Price is the last big difference between air driven and electric brushes. While air driven brushes definitely cost less, carpet is usually one of the largest investments homeowners make, making the up-front cost difference of an electric kit easily justifiable. Electric brushes are typically quieter and provide more consistent, deep cleaning because they are operated by an independent electric motor. The Stealth takes electric cleaning abilities even further with an amazing belt protection system, longer bearing life, superior edge cleaning, and top user satisfaction.
