Miele TT 5000 Cat & Dog
Disadvantages: Mainly the price
I already own a Miele 5000 revolution vacuum cleaner and am really pleased with it. However I have a back problem and find it impossible to life the cleaner up and down the stairs. With this in mind I decided to splash out and buy another cleaner for use downstairs. As we have a long haired setter it was decided to buy a cleaner designed for pets. I was going to buy a cheaper cleaner but in the end just couldn't resist another Miele!
After looking on the Miele web site I decided to buy the cat and dog TT 5000. I can't remember exactly how much I paid but it was on offer at the time at around £150. There was also an offer to extend the usual 2 year warranty to 10 years for an extra £30. I bought my cleaner directly from Miele and it was delivered free of charge in record time!
What you get for your money.
The Miele TT 5000 comes in dark red. It is very easy to set up from the box .The cleaner features-
A 2.200 watt with the ability to change the suction setting down to 300 watts, brilliant for cleaning curtains as they don't get sucked up the tube! There are 6 power settings in total, changed by turning a dial located on the top of the cleaner.
A 10 metre operating radius and 6.5 metre cable. The cable rewinds into the cleaner automatically when not in use. The cleaner has 360 degree swivel wheels making it really light and easy to manoeuvre.
The 4.5 litre capacity Hyclean dust bag is sealed to prevent any dirt escaping when it is emptied. I tend to empty the dust bag about once a month and it is really simple to do.
This cleaner features the Miele active air clean air filter and also has a super air clean cassette containing charcoal to help eliminate odours. The active air filter is situated behind the dust bag and should be changed every time you change the bag. The filters need to be cut to size and are then simple enough to fit.
The charcoal cassette will need to be changed about once a year and there is a handy space for you to write the date when you change it. I have owned this cleaner for about 6 months so haven't changed the charcoal cassette yet, but can see it will be easy to slot out.
There is a bumper bar at the front of the cleaner to protect furniture.
The cleaner comes with a crevice nozzle, an upholstery brush and a dusting brush. The dusting brush is handy for dusting hard to reach places such as the top of my wall hangings, the top of the bookshelf and doorframes.
The upholstery nozzle is really good for cleaner down the sides of my sofa and chairs and the crevice nozzle can get into all sort of difficult to reach places! However the best thing about this cleaner as far as I'm concerned is the full sized turbo brush.
The turbo brush has air driven rotating rollers. It is amazing at getting rid of pet hairs and other hard to reach bits of dirt and fluff from carpets. Our home has a mixture of carpets and wooden floor coverings and this is the tool I use the most often. I leave the turbo brush attached to the cleaner when not in use as there is no separate storage space for this brush.
The cleaner has a stainless steel telescopic suction tube that makes it feel like it has been built to last. It neatly folds into itself when not in use.
The cleaner weighs 7.7 kg.It features a safety cut out should a problem arise.
The cleaner comes with 2 Hyclean dust bags, filters and 1 charcoal cassette.
As you can probably guess I really love this cleaner! It makes light work of getting rid of pet hair from both my carpets and wooden floors. The swivel wheels make it easy to manoeuvre.
The 10 metre operating radius means that I don't have to keep changing plug sockets when moving into a different room. The long flex also means the top of the stairs can be reached using one plug socket; although I have to get someone else to clean the stairs for me due to my back problem.
The dust bag indicator warns me when I need to change the bag so I can forget about it!
This is a premium brand of vacuum cleaner and has a premium price tag to match! I managed to buy this model on offer for around £150 with a 2 year warranty, but that is still expensive. I have recently seen this model on sale for £199 in my local electrical store!
The Hyclean dust bags are excellent but they are also very expensive! You can expect to pay around £9 for a box of 4 bags and filters. That represents about 4 months supply in my case.
This cleaner was a Which best buy and I can certainly see why!
