Optional Suction Settings
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.
