If you have bought yourself a spiffy new Dyson V8 or V7 vacuum cleaner, you may have noticed that the tool fitting differs to your previous Dyson vacuum cleaner.
The new generation of Dyson cordless tools as found on the V7 and V8 models are released with a red button on the tool which is a revision on the tool fittings previously.
What you need is an adaptor for your Dyson V8. Dyson do not sell such a thing, but they are available.
The red button adaptor on the left fits into your V7 or V8 and allows most tools from the DC16-DC75 to be used (they dont fit tools from the DC11, DC15, DC19, DC20 or DC21 or any cylinder model floor heads).
So you can use them with the previous variant of Dyson tools.
Using both adaptors, you can also use your Dyson V8 with older 32mm Dyson tools from the DC01- DC14, and other applications such as vacuum storage bags.
