Is there such a thing as a Dyson universal tool set? Aren’t all Dyson tools model-specific? Is it possible to buy one set of tools that fits every Dyson vacuum cleaner?
This is a question we are asked often.
People get confused with brush tools, stair tools, crevice tools, combination tools, upholstery tools, mattress tools, etc.
And the universal adaptor many speak of is not only a misnomer, but a subject we have a full article on.
However, back to topic, is there a universal tool set to fit every Dyson vacuum?
The answer is almost.
There is such a thing marketed as the Universal 4 Piece Dyson Tool Set. It looks like this.
That fits all models apart from the DC05 motorhead, DC08, DC11, DC15, DC18, DC19 standard, DC20 and DC21.
But lets delve into specifics as some people can save money.
On models DC01, DC02, DC03, DC04, DC05 (not Motorhead) and DC07, you can use >>this set<< as you do not need the adaptor that comes with the set above. However, on the DC01, you will also need >>this adaptor<< to use them with the hose.
On the DC14, you can use >>this set<<. But the DC01-DC07 set above will also fit if you are not bothered about storing the crevice tool on the machine.
The DC05 motorhead, DC08, DC11, DC15, DC18, DC19 standard, DC20 and DC21 all have tool connector sockets that are unique to those models, so you need to buy model-specific tools.
For DC05 spares go >>here<<.
For DC08 spares go >>here<<.
For DC11 spares go >>here<<.
For DC15 spares go >>here<<.
For DC18 spares ho >>here<<.
For DC19 spares go >>here<<.
For DC20/21 tools, its as easy to get them from Dyson themselves >>here<<.
So anything ‘universal’ then?
The universal set above that you can get >>here<< will fit all the following Dyson models: DC16, DC19T2, DC22, DC23, DC24, DC25, DC26, DC27, DC28, DC29, DC30, DC31, DC32, DC33, DC34, DC35, DC36, DC37, DC38, DC39, DC40, DC41, DC42, DC43, DC44, DC45, DC46, DC47, DC48, DC49, DC50, DC51, DC52, DC53, DC54, DC55, DC56, DC58, DC59, DC63, DC65, DC66, Cinetic and V6.
If you have one of those models, that is way cheaper than buying the tools that Dyson say you want at circa £10 each – a nice cheap solution for under a tenner.
How easy is that?
