Title: Different Dyson V6 Cordless Vacuum Tool Attachments
Post by: mrdyson on February 14, 2017, 04:17:57 PM
There seems to be confusion around V6 attachments, wands and heads. Many people don't know what fits what and when you ring Dyson most of their employees think they're all interchangeable. Hopefully, I'll try and clear up some confusion....

There are 3 types of V6 attachments.

1. Total Clean

[attachimg=1]


2. Absolute

[attachimg=2]


3. All others including standard, Flexi, Fluffy & Animal

[attachimg=3]

The standard V6 (silver wand), Flexi, Fluffy & Animal models are all interchangeable; the bins, wands and all attachments can be swapped on these models. The Total Clean and Absolute models have to be used with their own attachments and are not interchangeable with any other machines.

By the way, when I talk about attachments I mean the motorised attachments - all of the non-motorised tools are interchangeable with all of the V6 range.

Hope this helps.

This is always a source of confusion to many people. Us included when matching parts to machines - it's a nightmare to do it remotely, and that is one reason we sell very few of these online. When people call up we always tell them to bring the machine so we can match the head. Dyson also have given us incorrect and conflicting information in the past as to what fits what.

Looking at those photos, I looked at the DC35 we have at home, and it differs again....

Great topic. We are overdue some clarification on this confusing subject.

Yes, the DC35 and the DC44 are different fitments too and can't be interchanged.

Hello People.
I have a question regarding other models of the V6.
I have an V6 animal but I have a spare purple wand and head attachments.
Now I could really do with another V6.
If I purchase a V6 Trigger, Car and Boat or Mattress, will I be able to use my purple wand and head attachments with these? As these models do not seem to be specified above.
Many thanks and sparkly clean cyclones in advance.
