It works...good for light duty use, good value for the price.
Can't vacuum under furniture low to floor like i could with my old one. Can't vacuum throw rugs. A bit disappointing.
Bristles are stiff, which was our only disappointment since our old one had soft horse hair. We were afraid to use it on the hard wood floor at first but it does not seem to scratch the finish. It does the job though.
Product does what it is supposed to do; sweep the floor. It has a high profile so does not go under edges of furniture, appliances, etc. like the original, that is a negative. I didn't think to measure my stuff before ordering it, that is my error, but never thought about it. I would not buy this again and would have returned it except I threw away the packaging, etc before using it.
I have a 30+ old Kenmore central vac system. I contacted MD cause they were one of the few websites that said they had replacement parts for it. I purchased the 35ft vac hose, tube fitting so it would fit my old wall valve and this floor brush. I was thrilled that I was able to find replacement parts for my dear old central vac system but I have to say I was not 100% happy with the floor brush. Today was the first time I used it. I like the length because it takes less time to vacuum because it's longer than my old one but when I was cleaning off the debris from the bristles, they came out with the debris! If this happens every time I vacuum, I'll have to buy a replacement long before I should have to. Not good quality in my opinion.
I'm finding that the new bristles are collecting the dog hairs and I have to constantly take off the extension rod to clean the floor brush. I guess I'm so used to my old worn out floor brush bristles. Other wise the floor brush works as it should.
works fine, is a somewhat stiff but I think that will soften up after a few uses
bristles must be cleaned off by hand every few minutes when I use this attachment.
It works well. I wish it was a little more tapered to fit under lower pieces of furniture, but works well.
I purchased this floor brush to replace the "worn out" floor tool that originally came with my Filtex central vacuum. This new attachment is adequate, I guess, as it's a little wider that the original brush, however since it's plastic, it doesn't grip the wand as tightly as the original metal part. Therefore, it has slipped off a couple of times during use.
The width of the floor tool is a little wide to pick up debris well. I've had a devil of a time finding a floor brush with the brush rows closer together. This is good on pet hair but not as good on other floor dirt.
Dust and dog hair gathers on the brush and requires me to remove by hand frequently.
I find that it does not pick up as good as the original metal one
i wish the brushes on it were a little longer to make it easier to clean out after vacuuming
It is to big. The smaller one gets around the edges and corners of baseboards better. (MD NOTES: There used to be a 10 inch but the 12 inch has taken over industry wide.)
I have an uneven flagstone floor. I would like a stiffer and shorter brush that would really vacuum the porous surface. This brush is good for even stone floors.
I was expecting the brush to fit directly onto my existing wand. Instead we have to use an adapter. The brush is marginally effective for its intended function.
