Often in the search for vacuum cleaner parts, there are offers for generic or universal components at a cheaper price. Materials from which these parts are made will not match the quality of the vacuum cleaner and may end up affecting its entire performance. Just like putting an old tire on a new car as a replacement and calling it even, you could end up costing yourself an entire vacuum just to save a few bucks. Always stay with the original manufacturer's vacuum cleaner accessories.
To find floorcare products that seem to be unavailable in your area, go to the manufacturer's website and order there or find a local authorized dealer who can order parts for you.
