Bought this last week as TSV and am so disappointed in the extension hose/wand attachment - which is the main reason I bought it. It is so tight that it just pulls the vacuum around, instead of extending to the length I need it. So basically useless to me.
Others who have this - does this hose loosen up with with use? In the demo it looks nice and flexible and doesn't seem to be pulling the vac around with it.
In my experience, yes it does. I know - it's really super tight at first. Seems like kind of a pain until you work it a bit and it loosens up. I have a couple of the DC25 Ball models and I really love them. The only thing I love a little less is their slightly shorter cord, but it was not a deal-breaker for me. I hope you enjoy yours.
Bippity boppity BOOYAH!
I love my Dyson Ball - it is so nice to use and the way it flows. The hose and wand take a little time to get use to using and figure out but don't discard it yet. I love mine compared to all the other types I have had and picks up wonderfully especially the pet hair.
Unfortunately that is one of the many reasons I gave my Dyson away. Give me my less expensive Hoover any day.
I'm so glad you posted this question. I love my Dyson TSV but using the hose attachment was a little difficult. I'm hoping it loosens up too. Not a dealbreaker for me either. It got my carpets so clean its definitely a keeper!

Wow, thanks for your speedy replies! Glad to hear it should loosen up - I was VERY frustrated using it this morning. I surfed a few other sites and found other reviewers that said the hose loosens up, too. Glad we have until end of January to return this - by that time I should know whether or not it gets easier with use.
