That's what i hear. Just medium suction and a basic brush attatchment.
That's what i'm talkin' about. The Kirby post kinda cracked me up. Not gonna spend a grand(or more) to clean a pool table.
Here is what I use, a little Oreck with a brush attachment. I inherited an old Kirby years ago and it does have an attachment with a round brush, so I might just give it a try. My only concern with the old Kirbys is might they have too much suction for pool table cloth?

I would never do that.
Picked up mine from a pawn shop

Still works as good as the day I bought it.
They can be had very cheap used and are built like
Newer vacuums(dyson, etc) are built like a plastic
Chinese dollar store toy.
I've used a rotating brush Shark handheld on my tables 2x per week, wet wipe them with a hot Woolight mix once a week, use X-1's several times a week and clean the balls a minimum 3x per week. We have league Mon.-Thurs, drunks Fri.-Sat. and free pool all day Sun. We get 3+ years of wear out of our Simonis 860HR. I have never seen anything bad that a rotating brush does to worsted wool cloth. Brian.
Kinda agree. 3yrs is a LONG time if you have any play volume at all.[/B]
To augment that statement, I've never in all my years of being in a pool room, owning one, running many, and traveling all over the US, seen a successful large room use a ''rotating brush'' of any type ''on'' the cloth. Reason being, why would the room owner want to ''rub'' the cloth that much more.
3 yrs per recover...............hummmmmmmmmm.
