Miele C1 Classic Olympus Performance
This vacuum cleaner has a powerful 1200 watt motor which will suck up anything in it's way.It's extremely light and very easy to maneuver around furniture and other objects as it has swivel wheels.
Due to its reduced-noise motor and integrated sound insulation, this machine runs very quietly. So quiet in fact, that your cat may not even need to dash under sofa when you start it up! An added bonus is that you can even adjust the noise output level with the rotary dial.
Why You Should Buy This Vacuum Cleaner?
If you have hard floors and only a couple of low pile area rugs, then this powerful little machine is definitely for you. Because it's lightweight and super quiet, vacuuming will be a breeze and the powerful suction will mean that you'll have the entire house cleaned in no time.
It also has replaceable bags which means no messy canisters or dust cups to empty. This is great for allergy sufferers as the dust stays in the bag and not on your hands and clothes.
Each dust bag holds over 1 gallon of dust and dirt and should last for a month or two before it needs to be replaced.
You only need to replace the filters once every 4-8 months depending on how much usage the vacuum gets and how large an area you need to clean. As a general rule you should replace the filters when you purchase a new pack of bags. There are 4 bags per pack and a set of replacement filters.
The Miele C1 Classic Olympus is high quality German engineering and it's made to last. Miele expect their vacuums to last at least 10 years.
The fact that you can adjust the suction to clean even curtains is another big advantage.
The floor head, suction tube and handle all lock into each other with an audible click. This means that they're not going to come apart as your vacuuming away.
This vacuum cleaner does not come with a power head for thick pile carpet but there is a power carpet attachment available for this machine if you need one.
You definitely need to use the Miele GN dustbags in this machine. If you use generic bags it will void the warranty.

A: You'll need the SF-HA 50.
