The Turbocat turbine powerhead is manufactured by H-P Products and fits all central vacuum brands.  It has a low profile body that is designed to be light, responsive and easily maneuverable. The non-slip cogged drive belt reduces slippage, providing a more consistent vacuuming performance. This powerhead automatically adjusts according to carpet height, allowing for smooth, easy cleaning. This powerhead features dual brushed edge cleaning, allowing the user to vacuum close to walls and furniture.

The Turbocat air-driven powerhead features a DeepSweep Agitator. This is a unique staggered bristle design that allows constant contact of bristle to carpet in order to bring embedded dirt to the surface. The bristles are also crimped. This design allows the separation of carpet fibers while in use to allow the airflow to pick up and remove deeper dirt for first-rate cleaning.

This powerhead has a turbine wheel that rotates at a high RPM, generating the air power needed from your central vacuum for first-rate cleaning. To prevent belt breakage, the turbine shaft has a step-down feature that allows the belt to disengage from the belt drive in case of obstruction. If airflow become restricted in any way, a system performance indicator will slow down the Turbocat to notify the user that suction has decreased.

  • Q:

    I am looking for a power head that is compatible with the air vac 3500 Red series that has been discontinued?


    The AV3500 does not have any bearing on the type of varpet brush.  If the olf brush looks like this, then it will work with your machine.  AirVac used the turbocat and put their name on the outside.

  • Q:

    Will this powerhead work with the CV-353 model of Nutone vacs?


    This is an air driven carpet brush that works off of suction of the vacuum.  It will work with almost any brand.  There is no power required.  It works well on low pile carpeting.

  • Q:

    After just 2-1/2 years I will now need to order my 3rd powerhead. Is there a better powerhead to deal with dog hair getting wrapped around the roller?


    This is an air driven power head.  This is the best on the market.  There are other electric power heads designed to allow an easier clean of the roller brush, but that would require a change to the hose.  If you would like to discuss options, please call in.  800-533-3249.

We are very happy with our new powerhead. It is the third one we have needed since we built our home 38 years ago. So you know how well they work. We received it within three days of ordering it. I would definitely give it and your company a 5.
