Long Power Cord
I recently purchased the Miele Twist after an exhaustive search and reading many reviews. <br /><br />I think it's important to understand how the reviewer uses the product to fully understand how relatable the review is so here is my vacuum situation: I live in an older very large farmhouse with 90% wood floors, area rugs and one large second-floor room that has wall to wall carpeting. We also own two large-breed dogs. <br /><br />Because of the amount of vacuuming I do and the large area I cover, I wanted an upright vacuum with a detachable wand that would offer the benefits of both types of vacuums. <br /><br />Most uprights, I learned, are not designed for use on floors because the brushes continue to run. With a simple flip of a switch, the Twist allows you to turn off the carpet setting as you roll onto the floor allowing you to just use suction. It may not sound like much but I can start in one room of my house and vacuum throughout the first floor without lifting the machine.<br /><br />My favorite feature, without a doubt, is the wand. It is easily detached, produces adjustable, albeit very strong, suction and it telescopes to three lengths.<br /><br />This vacuum is also extremely well designed! Unlike so many other upright styles the tools nest in the back, so you're never knocking them off as you maneuver around. <br /><br />Some reviewers have said that the vacuum is heavy and I would agree that it is however, I rarely need to pick it up and if I do, there is an easy handle on the back.<br /><br />There is a very long cord which is good in some respects but seems to get tangled. I do wish the cord was retractable.<br /><br />Overall, I think it's a fantastic purchase and I would high recommend this to my friends.
