In any of the above-mentioned prior arts, one drive motor 83 is used to rotate the disc-shaped brushes 85 provided on both sides.
For example, when there is a difference in rotation resistance due to the cleaning surface, such as when one disc-shaped brush 85 is on a carpet and the other disc-shaped brush 85 is on a flooring, the driving force is balanced on the side with a larger load. Therefore, there is a problem that the rotational force is reduced even on the side where the load is small, and the predetermined performance cannot be obtained. Further, there is also a problem that practical reliability is poor because invasion of dust and the like into the bevel gear 88 and the like and entanglement of dust with the disc-shaped brush 85 are inevitable.

In this case, increasing the density of the flocking can improve the performance of scraping dust and the like, but the load on the electric motor naturally increases. For this reason, a large-sized electric motor must be used, and the weight and size of the suction tool are increased, resulting in poor usability. Therefore, in the present invention, a sufficient scraping performance can be obtained even when a small electric motor is used, by using a thin hair having a hair diameter of the flocking 35 of 0.1 mm or less to have flexibility. .
