it's an air-driven brush, much like the dyson canisters too.

I have the Miele C1, with air turbo brush. I have short carpet, so it does okay. The power Miele vacuums are a fair bit pricier, I think the C2 power one is around $699. Before I had a Hoover vacuum with power head, but it broke. I think that vacuum did a slightly better job with the power head. The Miele vacuums are very good though, only downside is the cost of bags but I can't stand the canister vacuums personally - trying to empty them just seems to make more mess.

Just to add, electric brushes can't be purchased separately for this or any other models that didn't come with one out of the box as they do not have the electrical contacts needed to power it. The cheapest Miele vacuum that does come with an electric brush is the C1 Cat & Dog which is $699 so it's a big jump up in price.The_Madz wrote: ↑Dec 16th, 2018 11:33 amit's an air-driven brush, much like the dyson canisters too.
so it's good for low/medium pile carpeting.
if your whole house is carpeted it's worth getting something with an electric brush.
but the price point on this is very good.
also, one thing to note when vacuuming with the air-driven brush is that you can rotate the logo to let in air so the rollers can spin on thicker carpets.

there are lots of nozzles you can buy.M1K3Z0R wrote: ↑Dec 16th, 2018 1:32 pmAre there any good quality aftermarket or better OEM brushes out there?
I'm disappointed in the upholstery tool and the floor/carpet tools included with these vacuums, the vacuum units and filters are great but these cheap stiff nylon bristles feel like a dollar store joke. No comparison to my parent's ancient kenmore vacuum, think it was thick horsehair and extremely soft.

Costco packages come with:
1 C3 Vacuum
1 Non power wand and 1 non power tubing
1 SBD 285 for hardwood/laminate/maybe very low profile carpet
1 STB 305 air powered rotating brush (most other retailer does not include this). Good for low to medium profile carpet. Cost about 129
4 bags. (most other retailers does not include these). Cost about 20
(For reference, the one on sale at Best Buy and McHardy for 399 (regular 599) is usually the C3 with all above except: STB 305 and 4 bags)
The 2 biggest decision for Miele vacuum is
a. Which canister you like (C1 (made in China), C2, C3, etc). The higher end are sealed and have an option to get HEPA filter
b. If you are likely going to need the powerhead (SEB series) attachment for medium to thick carpet.
a. C1, C2, C3 is easier to decide
b. In order to use SEB powerhead, you will need both power connected version of the wand and tubing (which the costco and other cheaper version does not provide). These are very expensive on its own, and would be better just get the versions with SEB power head included already.
Hope this help clarify a few things.
