Botvac beater bar mod

Postby vic7767 » February 4th, 2016, 6:02 pm

There are some bristle style inserts that can be installed on the Botvac and Connected model beater bar cleaning brush to replace the beater vanes. The bristle inserts are designed for the shorter XV plastic tube (Not the aluminum tube) style cleaning brush but you can install them on the longer style tube and just alternate the length of each bristle insert. Works quite well.

How hard are those bristles? Are they super soft, like the side brush?

I was very disappointed with how soft the side brush is, harder bristles would move more dirt, like the blades already do.

They are stiffer than the side brush bristles.

You can find them on ebay with seller casino187. I bought a bunch but haven't put them on my website yet.
