  • 15" Stealth Central Vacuum Carpet Nozzle - 490T

    15" Stealth Central Vacuum Carpet Nozzle - 490T

    This is absolutely the BEST power nozzle built in the central vacuum industry!
    We have been selling this power-head to our customers since 1993. Out of the hundreds we have sold over the years, we have only had ONE fail. That particular unit was being used in a commercial environment. This is a huge testimony to how well built this nozzle is.

    There have been thousands and thousands of these power nozzles sold over the years. In all that time there have only been a few people that have been able to brake the belt! The motor automatically shuts off under heavy load tension.

    It has an adjustable height adjustment system, and is made of the finest components!

    NOTE: This power nozzle now comes with an electrified telescopic extension wand!

    This is the newest version and it has several new improvements including a new short cord that plugs into the all new Stealth Wand.
    The old style Stealth had a 40" cord that ran up the metal wands. The new one integrates the cord into the telescopic wand.

    Stealth is now ONLY AVAILABLE with the new integrated wand.

    Makes a great replacement head and is also available in a complete hose kit.
