enhance cleaning performance. The bristle pattern lifts
out the deep down dirt while gently grooming carpet
fibers. The floating suspension self-adjusts to all carpet
heights and protects your carpet if you leave the Power

upright position, CarpetSaver™ automatically raises the
brush off the carpet.
