Dyson DC62 and V6 Cordless Vacuum Accessory Compatibility

Dyson provides multiple different versions of battery-powered vacuum cleaners that are very similar: DC62, V6, V6 Animalpro, V6 Fluffy. I analyze the compatibility of various vacuum cleaner models and their attachments. I gather information that would enable me to mix-and-match various vacuum cleaner engines with attachments in case a wanted attachment does not come in the box.

In the table, I summarize the versions of Dyson vacuum cleaners and their standard set of attachments that you can find in the box.
