The Power Essentials Kit is excellent for hardwood floors, area rugs, berber, and low pile carpeting. Switch from hardwood to carpeting without changing tools. The LS Power Essentials Powerhead features a dirt sensor that shows you when a floor surface is dirty or clean. Its built-in rug guards prevent the powerhead from grabbing onto carpet and jamming up. Unlike traditional belt drives, it’s cogged design eliminates belt stretching and provides steady, reliable performance.
