Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Buck Awesome tool
I bought this unit for the brush only. I thought I could get underneath my refrigerator with it and break loose some of the dust bunnies and get them out the best I could with a shop vac.
I saw it also came with a shop vac attachment and when I got it home I found that it perfectly fit between the coils on the bottom of my refrigerator.
I also bought an adapter so I could use my 16 gallon shop vac (larger hose) with the supplied suction nozzle (sized for a small hose).
I EASILY got dust out of the coils that had been unreachable for 20 years. My fridge runs cooler now and the compressor doesn't come on nearly as much.
I gave it an average rating for value because it's plastic and steel and made in China so I figure Home Depot only pays $2 for them but i gave it 5 stars because it makes an impossible job easy.
Oh yeah, you could use it on a dryer duct too.

The extension of the brush made it easy to clean out my dryer vent. It pulled a lot of lint out of the vent. It was the best solution of the several that I tried for cleaning out the vent.

The only problem I had was in the packaging. The flat tube is bent in a 90 degree angle in two places. This collapses the tube at those teo bends. I had to work with the tube for quite a while to undo the crimps in the tube. I will never store the tuse with a bend in it.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by NoOneSpecial Brushes are fine. Vacuum attach destroyed by packaging: USELESS
The brushes work well to clean the dryer vent & tubing.
Folding the vacuum attachment 3 times to fit it into the box renders it absolutely useless: can't be pointed where you need it, fold spots have holes reducing suction, and folds themselves reduce suction.
Frustrating & wasteful, but glad to have the brushes.

I couldn't get the brush in the vent to its full extent. I suspect there was debris still in the vent so I am probably still stuck for a service call I was hoping to avoid.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Golfboy Works Well if used Wisely
Purchased the brush system to clean out our dryer vent tubing during a remodel. Small brush worked just fine on the dryer. The round brush used for the vent tubing also worked well, removing a surprising amount of lint.
However, be warned that if you twist the brush cable as you insert the brush, ONLY turn it clockwise. Turning it counter-clockwise will unscrew the brush and leave it in the vent tubing as I did. (sigh) After considerable effort, I was able to retrieve it, and learned a valuable lesson.
So, put some LocTite on the brush threads before using, or only turn the brush clockwise when inserting or removing it from the tube.

As others have noted, the brush head screws onto the cable attachment. The manufacturer recommends rotating the brush in both directions, which is likely to cause the brush to come off in the vent. If this happens 10 feet into the tube, it's a world of trouble. The advice to use loctite on the brush threads is right on. I removed a substantial amount of lint with this tool. It had enough flexibility to get past the bend at the beginning of my duct setup, but not the 2nd bend in the ceiling. You'll likely have to go at the ductwork from the dryer connection and the exhaust port outside.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Chuy Just what I was looking for.
Product easy to convert to use for both short and long cleaning situations. Easy to use and does not take too much space to store. This product works just fine and the price was very reasonable.
