Product Details

The Nilodor 'Model S' Certified Pile Brush Lifter is a multi-purpose industrially rated vacuum that can be used for maintaining heavy traffic lanes, preparing carpet for hot water extraction, and grooming the carpet nap. It is an extremely heavy duty machine that comes backed by a 1 year warranty!

The one essential tool for proper carpet care, the Certified Model "S" Pile Lifter removes the deeply embedded dry particulate matter from the carpet while helping groom the nap, eliminate traffic patterns and prolong the life of your carpet and rugs. The Pile Lifter comes with a zipper bag, which uses disposable paper bags.

The Building Service Contractors Association International Carpet Guide says, "The pile brush type vacuum will remove deeply embedded soil and open up a nap more than a regular, lightweight vacuum. Usually, a pile brush machine will be used weekly on traffic lanes, monthly on all of the carpeted areas, and always just before any cleaning process. The pile brush vacuum is a dual-purpose machine because it is used both to maintain commercial carpet and to clean."

Nilodor has pioneered and developed the use of the pile brush lifter longer than any other machine manufacturer. They introduced the first two-motor pile lifter ever manufactured. It is the opinion of thousands of Certified Pile Brush users, that no cleaning job is complete or professionally done unless prepared by pile brushing. Skillfully engineered and ruggedly built, this is the only unit that offers you these exclusive features.

You can order this 'Model S' pile lifter with either a nylon or vegetable brush. Both are also available for purchase individually as replacements. The standard vegetable brush is slightly more aggressive than the optional nylon brush. The universal vegetable fiber brush is used for all types of carpets including but not limited to wool, synthetic, residential, and commercial carpets. It is the definite choice for any type of restoration work. The nylon brush is available for those applications that need a softer feel.

Why do you need the Certified Model "S" Pile Brush?

  • To help remove traffic pattern areas.
  • Breaks up and removes deeply embedded soil in your carpet.
  • Adds life to your commercial or residential carpet.
  • Grooms the nap for an elegant finished appearance.

What makes the Model "S" Pile Brush stand out?

  • Self leveling brush & base make cleaning & grooming easy.
  • Dual motor system where one motor drives a 4" vegetable fiber or nylon brush & one drives the vacuum motor.
  • Sand trap collects the larger particles, allowing just fine dry particulate to pass into paper bag insert.
  • Solid construction for use in any type environment & a guaranteed long life.

Instructions for Use

  1. Step One: The Pile Brush is ready for use after removal from carton and adjusting the height of the handle to suit the operator.
  2. Step Two: To operate most effectively, always start in a corner of the area to be pile brushed facing the lay of the pile. Except for shag carpet, and a few other decorator carpets, all carpet is constructed so that the pile will lay slightly in one direction.
  3. Step Three: Run the Pile Brush forward one or two steps and pull back over the same area. The Pile Brush action is complete on the back stroke, against the lay of the nap. Turn the unit sharply after completing the backstroke in the direction of the opposite wall, straighten brush when finished, replace inner bag if necessary, and empty sand trap.


  • Portable: The Certified Pile Brush can be wheeled up a flight of stairs.
  • Operation: Only the Certified Pile Brush is self-leveling and depth of brushing varies on the same rug conditions and height of pile.
  • Transmission: Brush drive is positive and geared to motor to ensure continuous brush action even when pile is high or badly matted.
  • Motor: Out in the open away from dust and grit means longer life.
  • Vacuum System: The exclusive sand trap prevents bobby pins, paper clips, carpet tacks or other metallic objects from ruining vacuum fan blades. Only lint and dust reach the blades and refill the disposable bag.
  • Brush: The Vegetable Fiber brush has gentle grooming action - does not break, cut or pull pile loop. Does not mat and is self-cleaning. Only Certified permits reversing of brush for longer wear. Also available with tufted nylon brush.
  • Sand Trap: Exclusive hinged sand trap on bottom to protect vacuum motor from metal, heavy objects.
