If you're looking for a good all rounder that will pass the test of time and actually pick up all dirt from your home then this is one of the best brands and models I have come across.
I actually own a cleaning company so I have to have the best hoovers and after being a lover of Dysons I have now changed all my hoovers to Miele's. I have this model and it works great on domestic properties and the more industrial of cleans.
It uses bags.
Its got one of the highest suction powers (2200W) which they don't sell anymore since regulations changed late last year (now a max of 1800W is only sold) so you get a lot of suction.
It has a long flexible hose (length 1.7m).
There are 2 filters (easy to change and clean).
6 tools - dusting brush, crevice nozzle, upholstery tool, turbo brush, parquet floor brush, standard floor tool.
There are different settings for different uses - Low suction, Max suction (carpets and dirty surfaces), upholstery, curtain, noise control. You can also hoover 9 steps before moving the hoover up the stairs with you.
Its easy to use, doesn't take up lots of space. The bags are easy to source (For example; Homebase, Currys) It will last a long time and is sturdy. The parts all fit inside the main part of the hoover.
