Comment:
Have had them all, this is the best. No product is perfect but for utility, this hits the mark. Home consists of bare floors, tile, rugs, 2 adults, 2 dogs and 1 cat; 50% of vacuuming is furniture, pillows, nooks and crannies. The Cat & Dog has become a daily 'must use' tool, while heavy, it's easy to change from floor to tools. Most importantly, it is durable and incredibly quiet. The machine is pricey but worth it; don't spend $400 on 2 machines in 2 year's time; just save up and get this if you can afford it. Picks up everything. Has an aggressive brush, so be careful; does not spit everything out the back end when working bare floors. Bags are expensive, but takes about 3 months to fill up; we vacuum every other day on average. The rubber wheels do not effortlessly transition' from bare floor to rugs; use the handle on the back to do a quick lift and you are good to go. Check on line for best prices and delivery as dealers are difficult to find.

Comment:
When my old Hoover died, I researched all the vacuums on the market and settled on this. Due to the price, it took me a while to bite the bullet and fork out $650 for a vacuum but I have to tell you, I a sure glad I did.<br /><br />I am a dog sitter and in addition to a lot of dog fur, there are always a lot of messes around the house from the pups tearing up toys, bringing in dirt, and just a lot of joyful doggy mayhem. Unlike every vacuum I have owned before this, the Miele Pet vacuum laughs at everything I (and they) have thrown at it. <br /><br />In addition to its incredible suction power it is, by far, the quietest vacuum I have ever heard and it is very maneuverable - especially with the ability of the canister section to lay flat, allowing one to get way under things like beds. And the way it swivels gives it maneuverability like I have never seen or ever thought a vacuum could have. I also like the ability to turn the beater bar on or off as necessary (like when going over rugs that have tassels on the end, or on the hardwood floor in my kitchen).<br /><br />The only potential drawback is its weight. It is heavy so, if you have to haul a vacuum up and down stairs or lift it a lot, you might think twice about buying this one. I think the reason it is as heavy as it is, is due to the weight of the motor that would be necessary to give the suction available with this vacuum and that it really is built to last; no cheap plastic body here - it is metal.<br /><br />So, I highly recommend you throw away any doubts about spending this kind of money on this vacuum and get it. You won't be sorry.

Comment:
I use this vacuum almost daily.<br /><br />I love that it is quiet on both carpet and hard surfaces.<br /><br />But, I have had this vacuum for a little over a year, now. So far, I am not happy! Anything larger than a small marble, in shape, will clog it. Anything heavier than a AAA battery will clog it. (No, I did not try to vacuum up either of these objects. It is just the best comparison I can give.) I do know, for sure, that pine needles clog it. And the clogs are in areas of the vacuum that are impossible to get to! <br /><br />In the instructions provided, it states that you should use ANOTHER vacuum to clean this one properly. (I should have returned it, immediately upon read that!) Seriously?! At this price, THIS vacuum should be the only one that I need!
