The most engaging feature of this economical, light-weight floor-cleaning tool is that it does its job very well and simply without time-wasting electronic "features". Since purchasing this little carpet sweeper, I do not haul out our central vacuum cleaner as often as I once did, because this terrific little time-saver does the job that actually needs to be done most of the time. Works equally well on carpets and hard flooring.
Pros: Cleans Edges/Corners Well, Easy to Use, Performs Well, Looks Great, Good for All Surfaces, Quiet, Great Value, Good Size & Lightweight, Easy to Empty Filter, Nice Design, does not waste electricity
I bought this product because I just moved into an apartment that much of it is carpet. I needed someway to clean in. I couldn't afford a nice dyson or anything so I bought this guy to hold me over till then.
When I got it it came in a 18" x 4" box. It seem to look bigger online. The handle is a sectional screw together. and the sweeper was smaller than i expected but it was correct to specifications. I assembled it. I was a little disappointed that the rubber bumper was not yellow as the picture shows, but GREY. I was trying to do this all yellow and black theme with my cleaning. supplies.
Anyways, I started using this thing. NO BATTERIES, NO CORD, NO NOISE, NO HASSLE, EASY DISPOSAL. This guy cleaned my whole apartment excellently. The carpets looked great. I was a little worried when they said , low pile carpet. and only showed pictures of that thin cheap office carpet. My carpet is pretty normal sized house carpet., which is definitely longer than what i think of with low pile carpet.
It cleaned it so good that I think i might not need to buy a vacuum for the rest of my time here.

I absolutely love this product and been wanting one for years!!. With living in FL all kinds of leaves, sand, dirt get in the house and to be able to do a quick non-electrically powered clean is well - priceless!

Sweeper works great. Love not lugging out the big vacuum cleaner. Love not having to plug it in and work around the cord getting stuck under furnture or around corners or running out of cord. I use it daily in between cleaning with my big vacuum cleaner and it really picks stuff up.
I was extremely disappointed! I brought this product with the expectation that it would at least clean the carpet. Unfortunately it didn't deliver! As you sweep forward it picks up but as you pull it back all of the lint clusters and redeposits on the carpet worse than before. What a waste!!!
Cons: Performance, doesn't pick up efficiently

Review 10 for Mechanical Floor and Carpet Sweeper
Would Not Buy Again
PostedApril 4, 2014
No, I do not recommend this product.
Bought it in July of last year, threads are already stripped. The handle will not stay together. Used on a semi-regular basis to clean low pile carpet. Luckily the manufacturer's warranty covered it and the store refunded our money.

I got this item for lighter cleaning. My vacuum cleaner freaks my cat out and I got this so I could do some light vacuuming without her running and hiding. It does the trick! It lacks the flexibility of a regular vacuum but it still does a good job.
Purchased for my Mom - to pick up crumbs in the kitchen. Works well. The only thing I don't like is the design of the handle - three pieces, which to assemble you have to "pound" them on a book to get them to stick together without coming apart with the sweeping motion. Took us a couple of times of "pounding" to get the handle to stay together.

Works nicely on small things, what it is intended for.
This Rubbermaid carpet sweeper is the best one I have ever purchased. I use it on bare floors as well as on area rugs which are on top of my carpet. It picks up dirt easily with one sweep and it easy to clean.
To clean a small room with a carpet area of 60 sq. ft., the brush has to be cleaned twice..The little comb that is supplied is a piece of junk. It does not stay clamped to the handle and it is warped from use. On certain fuzz it will pick it up sometimes but then lays it back down.
