Summary: Bought a couple of weeks ago and we now have carpets that look new. Removes all pet hair with minimum effort compared with the much harder work with my previously used Sebo. Good on hard floors too. It's a bit heavy to lift when necessary but that's not often due to the really good manoeuvrability. Thoroughly recommended.
Summary: Excellent value from Amazon Warehouse and is an superb cleaner. Only downside is the weight. It is very heavy and as such is difficult both to use and carry about the house. Hence 4 stars instead of 5.
Summary: in the past 13 months I have bought four vacuum cleaners and at last the perfect machine - yes it is heavy to pick up but it swivels and isn't that heavy and my word it cleans with stunning efficiency my old carpets look clean and not that old any more - you pay your money and you get your result!!
Summary: Read several reviews and chose this but....... It cleans well and is as good as my old Dyson. Read that it was heavy - as is the Dyson - I live in a 5-bed.bungalow and this has never been a problem until now. The Miele is like trying to push a massive boulder about - it is wider then the Dyson 01 - the handle is much higher. I am 5'6" even so anyone shorter would probably have a problem.
Summary: Brilliant machine well made and has made an enourmous difference to the look of the carpets. However it is without doubt heavier to use that the Dyson upright. Have retained the Dyson for my wife to use when I am out of action.
Summary: I read the previous reviews and was worried about the weight of this machine. Having used the machine, it glides effortlessly across carpets and floors and I can manage to carry it up the stairs without a problem. If you can carry a basket of washing upstairs, you won't have a problem with the weight of this machine.it has a great handle on the back of the machine so lifting is easy. Can't recommended this cleaner highly enough.
Summary: For effectiveness I doubt whether this model can be improved. I use it to vacuum golden retriever dog hairs off chinese rugs. It only takes one pass to remove all of the dog hairs and none get stuck on the motorised front brush. The carpet fibres "stand to attention" on completion leaving the carpets looking as new and no signs of carpet wear so far,which was my greatest worry. The hose reaches to the top of the stairs as does the power cable.
Summary: If you looking for dog hair vacuuming get a Dyson, this Miele is NOT AS GOOD as the Dyson, in fact our dyson animal is 2 years old but is still better than the Miele S7260. can't send back quick enough.
Summary: This may well be a good vacuum however it is so heavy you need to be a weight lifter to lift or move it. I gave myself a blister vacuuming my house. Having a little arthritus in my hands they ache and my wrists ache awfully when I use it. We have always used dysons but decided to try this as we have two cats. Worst buy ever.
