Excerpt: Evacuum did a wonderful job of getting the order to me promptly. It is very strong at cleaning. I would like to see the head a little smaller so it can go under furniture better and also have a place on the vacuum for the carpet/floor attachments. Otherwise, am very pleased. It pulls beautifully without getting hung up on anything. Haven't figured out how to tell if the bag is full without opening canister top.
Summary: I love my first Miele vacuum! All of the extra tools fit right on the canister so they are in easy reach. It is extremely powerful and cleans my wooden floors and tile very well. The controls are foot activated, so no bending. I really like the foot activated power cord retrieval. I had an Electrolux canister for 30 years and wanted another, but replacement is $1000. So for the price of the Miele, I would definitely recommend this vacuum.
Summary: I recently purchased this canister vacuum after years of cleaning with an Oreck Upright vacuum. This vacuum is light and so easy to use. The suction is the best!! So strong!! I use on mostly hardwood floors and low pile area carpets. Only thing I need to get used to is placement of on/off Power button. I definitely recommend this vacuum!
