Make Up and Comparisons
Can you please tell me what the bristles are made of -- synthetic or natural? Also, I am currently using the 14-inch floor brush with wheels. Am I correct that the only differences between that one and this new is the swiveling action, the lack of wheels, and the shape of the bristles? Will I find it any harder to use because it does not have wheels? Thanks so much.
The bristles are a combination of horse hair (for smooth cleaning) and synthetic (for strength and longevity). The other difference between the 14" wheeled brush is the size. At 13", the Axis has better suction and fits into more areas (and even more so with the swivel ability). Even though it is not as wide, you will actually clean faster because of its versatility and ease of use. It glides as smooth as the 14" brush, if not better, even without wheels. The Axis is not as easy to lift up and set on to a larger piece of trash, however, since it swivels up and down. You'll have to raise it higher and set it down on larger trash with a little more effort then typical brushes.
