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.
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.
