The Turbocat EX Turbine Powerhead is manufactured by H-P Products and fits all central vacuum brands.  It operates without electricity, power cords or batteries for a more convenient vacuuming experience. It has a low profile body and Easy-Glide wheels that are designed to allow the powerhead to be light, responsive and easily maneuverable. This powerhead automatically adjusts according to carpet height, allowing for smooth, easy cleaning. The soft Pro-Tech bumpers protect baseboards and furniture from scratching and scuff marks while in use.

The Turbocat EX air-driven powerhead features a Deep Sweep II Brush Roller. This is a unique dual height bristle design in a chevron pattern 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 short bristles to separate the carpet fibers while the long bristles remove deeper dirt for first-rate cleaning.

This powerhead contains a Silent-Drive Poly-V Belt. This belt is a self-tensioning and non-slip drive belt that  reduces vibration, noise and maintenance. This powerhead also features Run-Silent Bearing Isolators. These encase the turbine bearings for quiet performance and hold the turbine firmly in place to reduce vibration.

Questions and Answers for Universal8705 Turbocat EX Turbine Powerhead

  • Q:

    I have a Eureka Yellow Jacket central vac. in my RV. I need to know if the power head will fit, because my system does not have a snap lock on the various heads of the equipment. Thank you for your help


    This unit may work for your system.  It does have a friction fit lock (no button lock), but may require more suction power to turn the brush then your unit provides.  We would recommend the Wessel Werk TK284 turbo brush.

  • Q:

    U don't show a picture of the underside..how would this be on homes w wood floors but 4 heads of long hair? Easy to remove hair from underside? Ty


    For wooden floor homes, we do not recommend brushes that spin.  You are better off with a floor brush that has natural hair bottoms.

  • Q:

    My 20 year old TurboCat head recently failed – the plastic housing for the turbine spindle bearing and shaft cracked. I’m considering to replace my old TurboCat with the 8705 TurboCat head. I’m having my carpets replaced with Karastan “Kashmere” nylon carpet and I’m wondering if the 8705 will be compatible with that carpet?


    Turbocats are all universal.  They can be interchanged as needed.  If the carpet is nylon, you may need a more delicate brush.  If it is dense, you may need a soft carpet version.  I would ask the carpet manufacturer if there are any limitations.
