Just thought I'd add my experience- I've got a DC24 too and found the lack of crevice tool with it annoying. The crevice tool from a DC25 or any newer cylinder model (e.g. DC26, DC32) will also fit the hose and end of the wand as they use the same Dyson click fitting.
On that note, does anyone know if a mini turbine head is available for this model to buy separately? I know the DC24 Animal comes with one in the box, but I've been told it's a modified part to work better with the lower airwatts of this model.
