Title: DC25 adapter to fit v7 tools
Post by: arghness on September 14, 2018, 06:33:50 PM
Hi, I bought a "reach under" tool that claimed to fit the DC25 (it's Dyson part 967522), but it appears to have been misadvertised and looks like it's very specific to just the Cinetic Big Ball Animal 2, from looking at the Dyson site. I'm not sure it can work with anything else, although it looks a bit like a V7 tool.

There is another version I found, part 966045 that seems to work with v7 vacuums. Is there any adapter that might let me use this with my dc25? I can find a lot of adapters to use V6 tools with V7, but not the other way around.

I really need this tool, or something very similar.

Thanks!

So you have bought this:

Which is 967522-01 and is for the CY23/Light Ball/Big Ball, etc., and not the V7/V8/V10 although they look the same. And certainly isnt going to fit a DC25 out of the box.

Nobody has yet made a dedicated adaptor to adapt the two sizes of so-called "quick release" red button tools to earlier machines.

But I'll double check if anything does fit that and report back further tomorrow.

Does the red button tool fitting pull out of that tool at all or is it locked in?

BTW, for the DC25 you want 966600-01. Which is this.

Thanks for your help. It doesn't look like there's a way to disconnect the red buttons bit (on the right of your top image). It has a 90 rotation mechanism at that end, but that's all I can see.

I looked up the part number 966600-01 that you recommended - the Dyson website says it's for the DC39 and doesn't list any uprights in the compatible machine section. Will this definitely fit the DC25? Thanks again.

DC39 is the same tool fitting as the DC25.

I haven't yet checked if we can offer an adaptor solution of some kind, I've tagged the shop to remind me. I'll come back tomorrow.

So I checked and nothing will adapt the 967522-01 to the DC25. You want a 966600-01 as I first thought.
