I moved into an apartment with hardwood floors. This fit my Dyson DC29 without adapter and doors a good job cleaning. Yes the brushes on the unit pickup hair and such, but I don’t find it bad: just spend 15 seconds at the end of the vacuum to clean it off.
My Dyson Stick V8 is an excellent product. It’s convenient, powerful and easy to manœuvre. I like everything about it except for one thing: the power attachment has little wheels which scuff hardwood floors thus requiring a further step. My new attachment has completely remedied that step. There are no more scuff marks and the tool works excellently.
First, the good. It is cheap in price. It fits my V6 dyson perfectly.
The bad - it does not work at all. I believe there are two fundamental issues. The first is the biggest: on front of head there are two different sets of brushes before the actual area where things would get sucked up. The frontmost row has some openings where some bristles are lower. The second row has fewer and they do not line up. So you push into dust and hair and the brushes simply push all of it forward like a broom. Almost nothing gets to the suction area. The second issue is that this is a wide head and I think with the V6's very limited power such a large amount of open area decreases the effectiveness of that limited suck.
FYI, I am only trying to pick up dust and very light pet hair off of hardwood. This is as easy of a vacuum job as can be. Just wanted to make sure my expectations were not crazy high - I am not expecting a v6 to pull thick hair out of carpet or anything. I just use this to essentially dust or touch up hardwoods between getting out the central vac stuff. This head makes even my light need impossible.
