The floor nozzle doesn't feature motorized brushroll and is not well suited for medium- and high-pile carpets, but in combination with strong suction, it can clean large areas rather quickly.

Upholstery tool is used for vacuuming upholstered surfaces (hence the name), stairs, car seats, smaller low-pile carpets and other surfaces where the main floor nozzle simply can't reach due to its size.

Upholstery tool doesn't feature a small rotating brush like some motorized pet tools do, but it cleans efficiently various dirt, including pet and human hair, and can be used for vacuuming of the sensitive surfaces - motorized pet tools should not be used on sensitive surfaces due to the danger of surface damage.

Dusting brush features gentle bristles that agitate surface dirt which is then picked up by strong suction.
