Hello, the cleaning difference between these two brushes is minimal. The real difference is the design of the newer Zoom brush. It is an update to the tried and true TurboCat (aka: TL2000, T210, TurboCat V, VM179B, VM179, Ultra TP210, etc.). Our customers seem to believe they clean equally as good and work, for all intensive purposes, pretty much the same. The Zoom does have a different style belt that seems to last longer, as well as some improved engineering all around. The choice is yours.
