            Great brush, nice and soft.
            Great product that works great in my garage with the ridid shop vac that I have, what I like the best about this is the soft bristles that allow the dust to be 'stirred up' just enough for the vacuum to pick up the dust and debris. Having all three size adapters is also a nice addition because I have several hoses, the first one is the short 2.5 inch which is used near the vacuum. Sometimes I need to go much farther so I add a 1 7/8 hose to get around. this is where the adapter helps and gives me the extra flexibility I need. This also works great with my battery powered shop vac, so I no longer have any cords to deal with and works great for working on the car. I can go anywhere with it. The natural hair is also very soft and I can't think of anything that it will scratch, unlike the nylon or artificial hairbrushes. Of course nothing against those type of brushes, if you need something soft and won't scratch this will do it for you.

            Works with all vacuum hoses
            The dusting brush has adapters so you can use it with any vacuum hose size. I tried it on three different vacuums with three different hose size diameters, and it works fine on all of them. Also, this dusting brush has natural hair fibers rather than the nylon fibers, so it has a softer feel to it and in my opinion, works better. The body seems like it is made of a softer material so that will prevent scratching. The only down side is you need adapters if you want to use it on different hoses.

            Useful Replacement for OEM Vacuum Brushes
            The RIDGID 1-1/4 in. Natural Hair Dusting Brush Accessory with adapters provides a durable natural hair vacuum brush good for collecting dust and fine particles. The brush area is fairly large for a 1-1/4 inch brush compared to my previous brush, giving you more area covered with the brush. The adapters that are included can be used to connect to either a 1-1/2 inch or 2 inch vacuum hose, making this product very versatile. Attached to my vacuum, it picked up really well.

            Good performing brush with useful adapters
            The dusting brush itself has nice, soft bristles that don't interfere with picking up debris (or spider webs, in one case of my use.) I also like that the opening is wide, and the bristles clean off easily. The adapters really make this more useful, as I was able to attach the brush to three various vacuums I had, including a portable 1.5 gallon as well as a large 12-gallon.

            Highly effective at dusting delicate surfaces, with adapters to fit three sizes of vacuum hoses
            I’ve gone through a lot of dusting brush attachments for vacuums and shop vacs, and most of them have plastic bristles which a) don’t create a good seal and hence don’t clean that well, b) tend to wear out quickly, and c) can scratch or mar fine wood finishes. The dense, natural hair on this brush forms a tight seal that collects the dust in the first pass and it does so without scratching the surface being cleaned. (See pic.) Time will tell, but it feels like it should also last longer than the plastic bristle brushes. . The brush fits 1 ¼” hoses (typical size for household vacuums and small to medium shop vacs). The two adapters fit medium and large hoses. The pictures show it directly connected to a 6 gallon shop vac (no adapter), and with the 2 ½” adapter on a larger shop vac. . A great accessory to have on hand for speedy and thorough spring cleaning chores. Recommended. . “RIDGID 1-1/4 in. Natural Hair Dusting Brush Accessory with 1-7/8 in. and 2-1/2 in.

            Fine dust brush kit
            I've been looking forever for a fine bristle brush, but couldn't find any manufacturer, any size, any model for years. Ridgid put this kit out and not only it is a steal at this price but also has a couple of adapters I can immediately use for dust management in my shop machines. The natural hair has thick pile, the ring of natural hairs is about 1/3 of an inch thick, the natural hair feels normal to the skin. I've been using it a lot for fine wood dust but the applications are numerous, especially involving direct skin contact - the feel of the hair is very soft, not prickly and swipes even with moderate pressure don't feel uncomfortable. The three parts of the kit were made from different types of plastic - the brush seems to be made from 35% glass fiber reinforced polypropylene, very sturdy with a rubber ring around for vibration and scuffing absorption. The 1-7/8" adapter seems to be the same material, the 2-1/2 adapter seem a little bit thinner and more flexible. All the adapters have 90° step, which is not the top choice for changing sizes on a vacuum hose, but yet, it gets the job done. The kit is very functional, sturdy and adds an important accessory that was never on the market before. Cleaning it takes only mild soap and lukewarm water to rinse off everything and a few shakes to dry it off. That's a great and very functional addition to my shop area.

            Nice natural hair, adapters make it fit
            This brush accessory set comes with two adapters to help the brush head fit your hose sizes. The larger one fits both of our shop vac hoses, so it works great for us. The natural hair is fairly stiff to brush dirt off the floor or whatever I'm vacuuming and seems like it will last a long time. I love having an additional attachment for the shop vacuums.

            Works great on my Dewalt Handvac
            The Ridgid attachment with the natural hairs works perfectly on my Dewalt 20 volt hand vacuum. It has a 1 1/4 in I.D. which allows it to slip right into the vacuum. The Dewalt attachment is smaller and has nylon hairs and does not work as well as this one while vacuuming up cat hair off the couch. There are a lot more natural hairs on this attachment that really removes the cat hair. The other two attachments have a 1 1/4 inch O.D., not I.D., so I will not be able to use those directly onto the hand vacuum. All three pieces look like good quality made pieces that should last a long times.

            Higher quality than standard vac attachments
            The Rigid Natural Hair Dusting Brush Accessory is a must have if you are using a shop vac on delicate surfaces. The standard round brushes with the poly black bristles can induce minor scratches to high gloss surfaces. The fact that this brush also includes step down tube adapters for 2 ½, 1 7/8 and the brush fitting of 1 ¼ inches, you can use this on just about every type vacuum you have. The quality of the natural hair (boar’s hair I assume) is very high quality. The plastic portion of the attachment is a heavier material, and it doesn’t have the same hard plastic feel as those included with the standard shop vac. I plan to use this for delicate indoor vacuuming and for car detailing. This will be very gentle of black piano painted surfaces in many cars today and will not introduce micro scratches. I’m very happy with the product but only wish it could have been made in the US.
