My rug is a natural white Flokati ,10 foot in diameter.
The fibers are four and one half inches long.
The design of the long shag deep pile carpet brush would have been far more effective and worked more efficiently , had there been more suction ports spread out across the entire length of the Long Shag-Deep Pile Carpet Brush.
The concept is ok, but It would benefit greatly from a redesign.
BACK TO THE DRAWING BOARD PLEASE!
Does the job well of cleaning a thick shag area rug.
I anticipated the need for a special tool to vacuum a new shag area rug I had ordered. I did a quick search and found this long shag- deep pile carpet brush by MD Central Vacuum. It's perfect!
Works great on my shag carpet. I use my vacuum (upright) first then use this on my shag rug...it makes it look brand new.
I'm not sure how well it's cleaning but the carpet looks good after vacuuming. The carpet seems quick to flatten unlike using the Stealth but as it is recommended for long shag, I will continue with it.
This product is great with my Bissell. I have a very high shag piece of carpet and it does the job I need it to.
works fairly well - this is not a beater bar, so things aren't vaccumed the same, but works nonetheless. Made my carpet clean without beating it to death!
This is a unique and valuable tool. I actually use it after carpet cleaning, as well as for vacuuming. We have a deep pile carpet and I have long been frustrated by the inability of typical brush heads (even one as great as the Stealth) to get the long fibers to stand up well in order to suction dirt from them. I am very glad this tool was offered - we use it all the time.
Makes the carpet look great but still feel I need to use the beater brush to get all dirt trapped in my heavy shag carpet.
This attachment fits perfectly on my Rainbow Vacuum straight wand and is a lifesaver when it comes to ease of use. I have been vacuuming 3" shag on my hands and knees because Rainbow doesn't make a shag tool. My only complaint with this attachment is that the tines are a little too flexible. If they were just a bit stiffer, like the tines of a carpet rake, this tool would rate 5 stars hands down. I still have to rake my carpet prior to vacuuming, but it sure beats crawling around on my hands and knees cleaning my carpet with the upholstery brush!
Loved it for my long shag rug. Only downside was I have to duct tape to my vacuum cleaner since it does not fit wand snugly.
Wish it had more sucking power in more holes across the entire brush instead of just a hole in the center, other than that I like it.
Excellent product, works beautifully. Fit my Dyson perfectly.
Makes my shag carpet look really nice. Very happy with this product.
Haven't yet used it on the carpet (which is being installed later this week), but the delivery and customer service from MD is 5 stars! Plus this was the only such vacuum attachment that I could find anywhere that would work on the dense Tuftex shag carpet we are getting for our bedroom. Loved that MD contacted me before shipping and asked the make/model of my vacuum to ensure that it would work prior to shipping to me. Based on the reviews for this product on this site, I'm optimistic that this attachment will meet my needs.
It works well, but isn't as sturdy as I would have hoped.
This is awesome for a shag rug. It really gets in deep and doesn't damage the rug.
This has worked well in lifting up the new, deep shag.
An excellent concept, and something I have been searching for! It works wonderfully on my large Flotaki rugs, though I would prefer the 'teeth' be a bit stronger.
The idea is good, but the problem is that with my particular shag, the rug tool could not lift and separate the fibers enough as if to thoroughly "rake" them. Also, there is not enough suction through the small opening in the vacuum hose to really allow the tool to perform well.
