5.0 out of 5 stars Surely as good as any vacuum cleaner can get? 4 May 2013
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
We have been using this for a few weeks now and are very pleased with it - as might be expected as Miele cleaners like this are regular Which? "best buys". We already have a rather old Miele "Cat and Dog" cleaner and this one is a slightly newer design and with an even more powerful motor. Basically, it is an extremely well-made, typically "German" product that impresses with the sheer quality it exudes in both appearance and performance. It is quite lightweight and moves around very easily; it is strongly made to take all the bashes a vacuum is bound to receive as it is pulled about the house, and it and the suction head are both made from materials that won't damage or mark whatever it pushes up against, chairs, beds, radiators and such like.

In terms of use, I have found that I much prefer to use it with a motorised cleaning head attached. We took this from our old "Cat & Dog" machine as this version does not come with one. The motorised head makes it altogether easier to push and pull over carpets than the non-motorised version; in fact, one of the difficulties of machines of this extraordinarily high power is that you do have to choose a lower suction level for some surfaces or the "pull" effect of the suction makes vacuuming quite hard work and tiring. It's easy to reduce the power - and this has the effect of reducing the noise, too (not that this machine is in any way "noisy"). With the motorised head you can leave it on full power and it is a dream to use sucking and sweeping every bit of dust, hair and fluff from whatever it moves over. You have to use one of these to realise just how clean they do leave a carpet - far more effective than an upright in that sense in my view.

A product of this obvious high quality simply has to be recommended highly: it works, and works extraordinarily well, and looks and sounds as if it will be doing so for very many years to come. Well done Miele.

Miele do make the best vacuum cleaners. We have an old cat and dog version and decided to update it. This one is far more powerful.....so much so that we have to lower the power on deep carpets otherwise it can't move!

We are very pleased with the performance and style of this vacumn it does an excellent job. Having our old Miele cylinder for over 20 years it was a no brainer to purchase a new one. Highly recommended.
