Details


Description
A carpet sweeper made by Fleet of Surrey. The unit consists of a metal head on 2 wheels. In the front there is a knob which can be turned to raise or lower the settings. A long handle with a slightly curved grip swivels over the front head. There are 2 wheels at the base to roll the sweeper. Just behind these 2 wheels is another set of wheels with a roller brush between them. This brush rotates and picks up the dirt, hairs and dust from the carpet as the unit is rolled along. The debris is then fed into the long canvas bag suspended by a spring from the handle on top.
