|Home Lindhaus 14" High Performance Power Brush PB14E|
The most respected power brush in the floorcare industry, the Lindhaus PB Series Powered Nozzle has earned its place with a reputation of reliability and performance. A derivative of the commercial nozzles used on the Lindhaus upright vacuum, the PB Series is well suited to cleaning carpeting of all types. The Lindhaus PB series power nozzle uses the geared belt drive system for unsurpassed deep cleaning performance on carpeted floors. Geared belts are not often employed on domestic power nozzles due to increased complications of production and expense.
To operate a brush roller at 5,000 RPM you must balance the rotating brush to such a high degree that special equipment is required to do so. Otherwise an inferior quality brush would become damaged by the additional stress placed upon it rotating at such a high speed. Other parts must also be able to work within these tolerances, such as the bristles, bearings, pulleys and belt.
When using a conventional belted vacuum, the moment the brush touches the floor slippage occurs. After 10 -15 hours of use, the heat and wear on the belt has weakened it and belt slippage increases, up to 50% of the rotational speed is lost. The geared belt drive does not stretch and does not slip.
Geared belts also provide an additional benefit that is not found in most flat belt nozzles: excellent edge cleaning on both sides of the brush. Thanks to the narrow width of the geared belt the bristles at the end of the brush are closer to the edge than regular power nozzles. The geared belt of the Lindhaus PB (shown above colored red) is synthetic, made of neoprene and is fiberglass reinforced.
Rubber is not needed because the belt does not stretch into place or require tension to spin the roller. While most manufacturers exclude the belt from their warranty, Lindhaus gives an extra 3 year warranty on its belt.
The bearings of the brush roller are often problematic in conventional vacuum nozzles. Most are designed to be replaced annually as they gradually lose their lubrication during use. Lindhaus PB's use sealed commercial precision bearings. The bearings are matched by the manufacturer for the speed and load of the application. The bearing holders are also unique and are made from cast aluminum.
Most power nozzles use plastic end caps to hold the brush which mount into a plastic base. The problem is that most times the end of the roller will become tangled in threads, hair and carpet fibers which become heated by friction then melt the end of the roller and the base of the nozzle.
The PB Series end caps are made from cast aluminum and use o-rings to seal dirt, dust and threads away from the bearings which prevents damage to the brush roll and base structure. To reduce noise and vibration large rubber caps cover the brush bearings so the transfer of power from motor to brush is smooth and quiet.
The bristles on the brush roller of the Lindhaus PB are also commercial quality. The bristles are rated at 600 hours of use before failure. That's 6 - 10 times the life expectancy of domestic brushes. Other quality PB features include convergent bristles, which means two rows of brushes are always touching the floor at one time, pulling everything to the center. The funnel shaped, center mounted brush nozzle intake with a geared belt is also unique to the Lindhaus PB nozzle.
The Lindhaus PB uses an electronic logic circuit that monitors the brush speed, constantly checking thousands of times per second for a possible overload. On most domestic vacuums this is not required, the brush simply does not spin fast enough, nor is there any direct drive on a flat belt system. This same logic circuit also alerts you via LED lights on the power nozzle when the brush is set too low. No more guessing if the vacuum is adjusted correctly, no more wondering if it is time to replace the belt.
How many times have you inadvertently vacuumed up a throw rug or article of clothing? In a normal vacuum, you at least break a belt, and possibly burn out the motor. With the logic circuit in the Lindhaus PB, the brush stops and signals the user with a red light. This allows you to unplug the machine and remove the object from the nozzle before damage can be done. Plugging the power brush back in automatically resets the circuit and you're ready to clean again.
The nozzle connector of the Lindhaus PB is a double swivel that articulates both up and down, and side to side for complete control. The button locking connector fits a standard 32mm button lock wand for a positive locking connection and uses a release pedal to recline the nozzle into a cleaning position.
All four wheels of the Lindhaus PB are covered with a soft vinyl tire which protects hard floors and provides excellent tracking on floors of all types. All four wheels are mounted on metal axles that provide for extended usage and wear resistance over the more common plastic wheel mounts.
Internal features of the Lindhaus Power Brush include a cushioned motor mount for less noise and vibration, solid state circuit board, steel wear plates in the pivoting nozzle connector and a micro switch that automatically shuts down the power brush when the handle is locked in the upright position. Despite its impressive feature set, using the Lindhaus PB is simple for anyone.
You need only connect the Power Brush to the cleaning wand and plug it in. The carpet height adjustment is designed to clean 90% of carpet types set in the middle of its range and will require no further adjustment. The brush indicators will monitor the nozzle while in use with a green light and alert you to any problems with a red light. The Lindhaus PB is designed for high usage and built to take the extended use of cleaning large homes. The high RPM of the geared belt drive and the airflow engineering of the nozzle shoe and funnel intake deliver deep carpet cleaning performance not available in any other brand of power brush.
