which power brush

Posted by cleanability (cleanability), 14 March 2004
I've had an Extracta "Scrubba Deluxe" power brush for 7 years. I want to get a different one. Anyone recommend a good rotary power brush, preferably lighter than the one I've been using. I've seen Ashby's 2 brushes, they seem ok.   eg their "lightweight"   and their "metal".      Or should I stick with the Extracta one that I've got?    Or is there a good value power brush out there somewhere else?

If your extracta one still works stick with that.

I have one and god knows how old it is but it still does a good job and goes on forever.

I've got the smaller Ashbys powerbrush.  Its not metal but plastic but very durable and very light.  Its in perfect condition and would consider selling it for silly money if you want it.

Stick with the Scrubba De Luxe. unless you get a real bargain somewhere else. I have a Scrubba and a Rotabrush. The Scrubba is by far the best.
