Shark Mini Motorized Brushes
Shark Mini Motorized Brush or also known as Shark TruePet Mini Motorized Brush is cleaning accessory designed for vacuuming carpeted and upholstered surfaces that area hard-to-reach and thus clean using classic upright vacuums.
There are several Shark Mini Motorized Brushes on the market, and they all look very similarly, but each brush is designed for different vacuum model and thus, they should not be interchanged.

Shark Mini Motorized Brushes are powered via air turbine which drives brushroll, very similar to the brushrolls found in main cleaner heads of large vacuums, except that this brushroll is smaller. As the air passes through the air turbine, it spins, providing the rotation to the brushroll.
All Shark Mini Motorized Brushes are connected with special connection mechanism ('Release') which provide firm and robust fit - these tools don't use 'friction connection' mechanism, like some similar models from other manufacturers.
Some models feature 'Suction Release', allowing the user to set the suction directly on the tool itself.
Brushrolls feature two rows of relatively gentle bristles, arranged in V shape, which improves brushroll capability to pull deeply embedded dirt and pet and human hair and other debris from carpets and upholstery.
When we say 'relatively gentle', that means that brushroll bristles are 'more aggressive' than gentle, non-motorized, upholstery cleaning tools.
The list of the most popular Shark's Mini Motorized Brushes is given in the following table:

OEM vs. Non-OEM Motorized Brushes
Shark Mini Motorized Brushes are not cheap cleaning tools, but OEM attachments are generally of better quality and they last longer than non-OEM cleaning tools.
Thus, go for OEM Shark Mini Motorized Brushes.
Few more notes:
- Shark Mini Motorized Brushes are not designed as non-tangle cleaning tools. After some time, it is up to the user to remove entangled pet and human hair and other similar debris from the brushroll,
- always use motorized brushroll with the corresponding vacuum cleaner, which may differ in air flow, air suction, air speed and pressure. Using the motorized brushroll on the wrong Shark's vacuum may result in the brushroll malfunction.
For short, if you have need to deeply clean your stairs, sofas and other smaller surfaces that tolerate this form of cleaning, go for the Mini Motorized Brushroll that fits your Shark vacuum.
