I have been using the Rug Rat for at least 20 years. I bought this one for my daughter. SHE LOVES IT. Cleans her carpets from 5 dogs running and playing in the house. Carpets never got this clean before. My husband and I use it most all of the time. He loves it too. And so easy to clean.
I purchased the Rugrat for those hard to get areas of carpeted stair case risers as well as the tread. There was a remarkable difference after using the Rugrat. The carpet came clean of dust and dirt in the tight corners and surfaces that was near impossible to sweep with other attachments. The Rugrat also proved to be a good tool for cleaning carpeted areas up against the wall more efficiently than the larger beater attachment.
Happy to find a replacement for the one that broke after 16 years, as a bonus this one is quieter. Works great on area rugs and furniture.
Purchased for stairs. Does a nice job, plenty of power.
Extremely happy with my purchase. Wish I had bought it a long time ago. Really makes vacuuming the stairs with the central vacuum so much easier.
I love this attachment for cleaning stairs.
Love this attachment! My arm was "breaking" from rubbing the carpet to pull up dog hair and this device works in ONE pass! Also easily removes pet hair from my microfiber sofa - only problem is that it leaves noticeable "lines" along the nap, but these can easily be smoothed by running a stair attachment across the cushions.
product was purchased mainly for vacuuming stairs and works great.
Works great, a bit noisy though!
Excellent for stairs. Just be sure to keep your fingers away - it's that powerful!
We have a golden retriever whose long hair seems to be attracted to our sofa like a magnet. She does not climb on the furniture, but it sure looks like she does! This tool removes the hair easily and completely. We have had NO trouble with the turbine losing strength or not turning. We clean the bristles of the turbine with a few quick swipes of the suction hose each time we use it. This is pretty easy maintenance and should keep it working for years to come. If your cental vac cannot accomodate the "Mini Elctric Brush," as mine won't, this is a first rate option!
I am having issues picking with the machine picking up as well as the turbine. It needs to have more power or longer brush bristles.
It certainly is a nice addition to my central vac system. I talked to customer service when I purchased it. The catalogue that I received had it priced at $17.99 and I was told it was an error, it was really $79.00 +. He assured me that it was an error in the printing and they were throwing the catalogues away. When the rug rat arrived, yet another incorrect catalogue.
I have cats, wanting a zip brush to clean off cat fur off my furniture. tried this. It is terrible, besides being heavy in your hand, if you are going on a corner the wand rotates makes it hard to get to the arm of chair Then what realy made me mad! it snagged my sofa! on the seat cushion!
Excellent and light tool for the steps. We love it.
I am very well satisfied both with the ordering experience and the performance of the Rugrat. Thank you for you prompt and efficient service of a quality product.
This is perfect for the stairs. It's light and maneuverable in spaces where the larger, heavier power head is more cumbersome.
I love the way it works...but it has a very high pitched noisy whine. It would be better if it were quieter.
Finally, we can clean our area rugs and the runner on the stairs. Have only had it for two weeks, but it works great!
I think the Rugrat Mini works very good. I tried it on my stairs with dog hair and the area rugs that normally get sucked up by the larger vacuum sweeper. The Mini removed the hair and did a good job on the stairs.
