Identify this strange Dyson tool?
« on: January 26, 2014, 01:08:03 AM »
I suppose I should know this. But I don't..........

We got a pile of new [old] Dyson stuff in recently, and this was among it:





The colour suggests pre-DC07. The wheels suggests it is designed for floor use.

But from what model? With what specific purpose?

Anyone know?

Well, it seems it is a Zorbster powder spreading tool.



Here is one being used.

Strong info from the folks on Vacland and Facebook.

Ahhh so it's like the manual spreader version of the hopper on the DC04 Zorbster...

Yes, it would seem so.

A glorified sweeping brush in fact. I found the Dyson blurb:

Quote
Zorb Trade Carpet Cleaner Groomer Tool

Groomer tool for your Dyson vacuum cleaner. With long bristles to work Zorb™ dry-cleaning powder deep into your carpet. Grooming action activates cleaning agents in Zorb powder to keep new carpets looking new.

Part numbers are: 902261-05 (purple), 902261-06 is the one above (now obsolete) 902261-09 seems to be the later version.

The one we have is listed for:

I might stick it on the shop with a bag of Zorb powder as a deal.
