Miele S7260 Cat & Dog Upright Vacuum Cleaner
The Miele S7 Series features breakthrough SwivelNeck technology that lets you steer your upright with little more than a turn of your wrist or even extend it into its unique flat-to-the-floor position. So instead of having to move furniture while cleaning, you’ll maneuver around and under it. The control and responsiveness of the S7 Series is perfectly complemented by its outstanding versatility. With an independently powered, spring-loaded roller brush, these AirClean Sealed System vacuum cleaners are capable of lifting dirt, dust and debris from the deepest pile carpets in one swift pass and then transitioning gracefully to a smooth surface, such as a polished hardwood floor. Miele’s S7 vacuums feature a 12-foot integrated flexible hose that makes cleaning upholstery, ceilings and drapery an easy task. Coupled with a long electrical cord, S7’s overall cleaning radius is 54 feet.
S7260 Cat & Dog Miele’s S7 Cat & Dog vacuum features a unique electrobrush that follows the contours of your floor, automatically adjusting for different carpet depths and surface coverings — providing even, consistent suction and gentle cleaning. The Cat & Dog features Miele’s AirClean Sealed System, comprised of an AirClean FilterBag and Active Air Clean Filter that captures and retains 99.9+% of dirt, dust and allergens. The Active Air Clean Filter has active charcoal layers to neutralize and absorb unwanted pet odors. The S7 Cat & Dog vacuum features a rotary dial control with four power settings that allows you to adjust the level of suction to the type of surface being cleaned. In addition to the standard included accessories — a dusting brush, upholstery tool and crevice nozzle — the Cat & Dog features a Mini Turbo Brush that easily removes pet hair from furnishings. Other conveniences include an LED headlight.
Here is what people think about it:
“I have used Kirby, Rainbow, and several other high end vacuums. The Miele S7260 is by far the best vacuum I have used in its price range. Much better design than the Dyson Ball. The Dyson Ball will not roll under furniture but the Miele lays completely flat and turns better than a Dyson Ball. The vacuum is powerful, quiet, and I enjoy using it. I ended up purchasing the unit from Carmens Vacuum and Janitorial in Columbus Ohio. The owner was very helpful and couldn’t recommend any other vacuum in the store. I asked if price was not a problem what vacuum would you buy? He said the Miele upright. I compared several other $500-$800 vacuums and went with the Miele. Carmens offered a 7 year full warranty at no cost. The S7260 comes with the LED lights and the pet filter. I won’t post the price but I couldn’t find a better deal; not even on Amazon. The only difference in the more expensive S7 units is the top air flow control knob. One is manual like the S7260 and the more costly ones are automatic. I preferred the manual control and it was $150 cheaper. The motors, filters, bags, lights all exactly the same.”
“I absolutely love this vacuum cleaner! I have 3 cats in a 2-story townhouse with lots of velvet furniture, so I shopped around quite a bit before settling on this vacuum. It’s very quiet and really easy to glide/turn. It has a lot of power, and I’ve had it now for about 4 months or so without any change in suction. I also really like the attachments, which I use to vacuum off the furniture, vacuum the stairs, etc. It’s quite pricey, but absolutely worth it.”
“If I could give this thing more stars, I would. It is really that good. First of all, it is really well designed. The tools store neatly and snugly in the back. Plenty of cordage, and the cord doesn’t really kink up either. The pivoting head makes it easy to turn, and it feels like it glides over the carpet. Manually Adjustable settings for different pile heights just below the handle stem, and a thumb switch for on/ off and carpet or bare floor. Has a handle on the back for easier carrying up or down stairs. I didn’t find the unit to be too heavy. The hand tool wand is easy to use, and has a nice handle which helps with getting in-between things. The tools don’t get loose and fall off or rotate as you work with them, and the telescoping wand is extended with a notched locking mechanism, not a friction fit, so it stays put. The powered turbo mini brush has a rotating collar where it mates to the wand, so it makes pretty steady contact with whatever you are cleaning. The light actually illuminates dust very well, so you can easily see where you have missed a spot (or all the dirt that your old vacuum didn’t pick up…). Really the only way the S7 could get any better is if it could vacuum by itself.”
