I've had a Dyson for several years now, and LOVE it. When I noticed this kit was available, I knew had to have it, mostly motivated by a lust for the duster attachment. The day after I received the kit (fast shipping- Thanks Overstock!), I went over the house, top to bottom, picture frames, furniture, lamps, doo hickeys, ceiling fan, light fixtures, chandelier, etc. and was quite pleased with the results. The bristles on the duster were shorter and not as soft as I had expected, but this didn't seem to hinder performance. I could easily and successfully dust items that would be tedious to dust by hand, and certainly not dust-able with a standard attachment. Attaching it to the end of my telescoping wand let me dust our vaulted ceilings and beams without climbing a ladder. Very happy about that.... The flex-wand was extremely difficult for me to slide-out (using the push-button thingy), but I eventually got it. I couldn't get under my washer and dryer as I had hoped, and when I used it behind the W/D, it clogged with rogue bits of dry dog food rather quickly (maybe 5 or 6 little pieces....?) so I was a little disappointed with that. I'll have to give it another try in a different application. I briefly used the mattress tool under the seat cushions of my couch, and it performed well. Overall, still happy I bought it. I'm gonna be vacu-dusting the bacheesus out of my house from now on. Much easier and more satisfying than using other dusting methods. Ta-dah!
I recently purchased a new Dyson Vacuum, I won't buy anything else. The attachment Kit is a great add-on to an already perfect vacuum. (The only drag is that they are not attached to the actual machine). The tools allow you to get in to tight places that you typically can't. The invention of the curved brush all allows you to reach up on top of a lamp or door and get all the dust / dirt without having to get a step ladder to do so. O.com had the best price out of anywhere that I looked, and believe me I looked all over.
I wish this set came with a bag or something that I could hang from the vacuum. The angled rotation brush works well on my ceiling fan. I do wish it clicked into different directions so it would stay at the angle placed. I just go slower when using it. I was able to vacuum the top side of the fan by adjusting the angle of the head. Will be trying the large flat head on my blinds next. I'll be looking for some item to hold these on the vacuum. Otherwise pleased
This kit should be included for free with every Dyson vacuum for the price they charge. But since it isn't getting it on sale here at O.co was good decision. I use this kit with my DC24 model vacuum. There is an adapter included with the kit that makes it compatible with all models. Dusting tool is clear with soft bristles that work great for dusting almost anything in my home. There is a wide felt pad inside the opening of the tool and rather than being completely open there are two small holes (one on either end) for dust to be suctioned into. Hair collects in the bristles and I suggest keeping a fine toothed comb handy thing to clean the tool after use. Angle Adjustable tool is useful for getting to awkward areas, like the top of ceiling fans, top of tall bookcases, kitchen cabinets, etc. As one reviewer mentions, the twist adjustments don't "click" in to hold a position and it is possible for the angles to change at undesired time if you apply much pressure. Again the felt pad with holes as the dusting tool are there. The pad is very good at catching hair and dust, though you will likely have to peel it off by hand to get it into the vacuum. The dusting tool and angle tool bristles are easily bent out of shape so you need to take some care in how you store them to keep them in pristine condition. The box they come in works great for this if you have room. I just make sure I put them on top of the plastic bin I store all my attachments in. Stiff brush tool is useful for dried mud, car clean-up, and lots of other things I'm sure I'll figure out as time goes by. It is the least specialized tool and the bristles are much stiffer than either other tool by a large amount. I would have preferred that the crevice tool came with this set or even the mattress tool would be preferable to the stiff brush tool since it has limited uses. All the attachments for Dyson vacuums are grossly overpriced. The price here at O.co was by far the cheapest for this set that I found anywhere on the internet. I am glad that I spent the money and got this kit. My house has never been cleaner and I find with the right tools I do clean more often. I recommend getting the Extension Hose in addition to any kit, as it makes using any tools much easier.
