Summary: I was familar with Miele vacuums so I knew whatever model I chose would be good.I decided on S8 Cat and Dog over a slightly less priced s6 for the following reasons:direct connect hose with no external wire for powerhead,tool compartment,larger bag capacity,and push button speed controls which are easily adjusted with your foot(no bending).The machine is light and is slightly larger than a S6 making it more stable to pull around.Best features are this thing has power to...
Summary: First of all , I would like to thank Mc Hardy's staff for a VERY fast delivery. A Thank you card and extra Air filter was such an appreciated touch! Vacuum is just beautifu( color and design wise), very powerful so you need to adjust suction powersometimes.Wand is not the lightest but all the wiring for the turbohead is going through it so it can't be super long and super light, but that is a small price to pay for the excellent performance.
Summary: The S8 vacuum which I recently purchased more than adequately copes with the cat and dog hair in our home.
I especially like the upholstery brush.
I like the fact that it is a quiet vacuum with lots of suction power and that there are adjustments for the power.
Summary: From the time you enter the McHardy web site to the arrival of the product at your door, they have you covered!
All businesses should use their model particular to customer service.
I received my vacuum quicker than expected and McHardy sped up my delivery by paying for Expedite Service. They threw in an extra filter as well with their thank-you card.
Miele makes an excellent product and McHardy provides and excellent retail outlet.
Summary: My last vacuum was an electrolux and while I loved it, I only had it three and a half years and then it just died.
I did lot's of research before I settled on the Miele Cat and Dog and it was ON SALE!!!
I was disappointed at first by the size of the head of the vacuum because it was so small compared to my last one but I have come to love it because it fits in places my other one didn't.
This vacuum is a quality vacuum and with such a great warranty you can't go wrong.
Summary: This vacuum cleaner is compact and very quiet. It definitely picks up pet hair and dust in short order where our "not so old" and noisy machine was only average.
McHardy's service and shipping were exceptional and made for a very pleasant shopping experience.
Summary: Love this vacuum however I hate the hose (too stiff and not long enough) plus you have to lay the wand down when you prop it as it won't stay propped up! Other than those two quirks the vacuum itself is awesome - maneuvers beautifullly seems to float on the floor and an awesome long power cord. Love that the extra attachments are on board, separately I purchased the flexible long crevice tool - awesome!
Summary: I do find the wand a little heavier than my last Miele. Love the cat and dog tool. The cord is nice and long. This is my second Miele vacuum and will stay with this product brand.
Great service from McHardy's and the delivery was very fast.
Summary: Great suction and great attachments. Only drawback is that my wife finds the weight of the wand to be quite heavy. Seems fine once you have switched attachments (rug to flat floor) but is a bit heavy and awkward for her to manipulate while changing cleaning heads. Most quiet machine I have ever heard as I find other vacuums very noisy and annoying.
