The Dyson DC17 Hose 911645-07, aides in picking up debris that the cleaner head is not able to pick up. Different tools are able to attach to the wand or the hose itself to make cleaning easier. It is always important that when you are cleaning stairs using the hose and wand that your vacuum be at the bottom of the steps. Once the hose is stretched to the maximum length, if it is pulled any farther that could send the vacuum down the steps.

Others have tried to purchase generic parts but have said that the hose they received did not fit as snug as the original Dyson DC17 Hose.
