Our cats get litter all over the floor. I've not yet managed to find a vacuum cleaner that picks it up quickly and well. Has anyone found a good option?

there are "sticky" mats that collect the litter from the cats paws that you can place around the litter boxes you can find them at any pet store

As for vacuum cleaners if you can find a manual sweeper they are about the best to use

I use a short handle fine plastic fiber broom and stand-up dustpan. Unfortunately, nearly all the stand up dustpans you will be able to find are really bad and spill the litter when you try to dump them. There is at least one off-brand that locks in position, but they can be hard or impossible to find.
After a through going over with the broom, I can mop the floor with a string mop and wringer bucket.

First, I use a small broom and dust pan, then I vacuum. Works for me! Takes less time than doing laundry, the dishes or the car.
a small shop-vac works good for me
I have found that the Bissell 2 brush sweeper like the ones restaurants to clean crumbs works great for me and beats dragging out the upright every time they use the box and with 4 cats and 3 boxes (One in each room but kitchen) the sweeper gets a lot of use!! Plus the cats like to chase it which they don't do with the vac. I go through a couple of the sweepers a years because after a while the brushes do not pick up like when new.
How it works may depend on the type of carpet you have. I have like a VERY short nap - almost like indoor/outdoor like restaurants use.

If your cats use covered litter boxes, there are "doormats" to place just outside the opening. They are ribbed and cause the litter to fall out of the cat's paw onto the "doormat" where it can easily be cleaned up.

I just use my Dyson but for that area I put the narrow pipe on (I think it's called a crevice tool) and that works every time

I have a shopvac that works well. They even come in smaller sizes now.
