Miele Libra Canister Vacuum, S5281

Introducing the new Miele S5281 Libra vacuum cleaner!

The Libra is a member of the Miele S5 series and has quickly become a favorite to many. It's impressive as a mid-size canister vacuum cleaner. Purchase one yourself and experience the difference. The Libra are great for customers who wants a long lasting quality vacuum cleaner. It's very quiet and does well with low-medium carpeting, area rugs and smooth flooring.

Ultra quiet featuring a HEPA Sealed system with large AirClean filtering dust bags. Includes power brush and bare floor flush for medium pile carpets and smooth flooring

Miele S5281 Libra Parquet Floor Brush SBB 300-3, Miela S5281 Libra brush is able to perform perfect 90° rotation for cleaning around obstacles such as table legs and in tight places

Miele S5281 Libra Deluxe handle, Miela S5281 Libra's vacuum handle is ergonomic hand grip to reduce wrist strain. The handle fits well in your hand and isn't clunky or heavy like comparable vacuum cleaners.

With so many on offer these days, it is great to have a name you can trust. This item is certainly that and will be a perfect buy. The distributor have added some great touches and this equals great value.
You can trust this review, i hope you can try to buy this product and then you know this product good or no. Next time you can make a review for another people.

So this is how the other half lives!!
Having struggled with vile super-heavy, badly-designed, dust-regurgitating Kenmore vacuum cleaners, esp. their upright model, I finally decided to spend money I haven't got and get a really good vacuum cleaner that will attack the dust problem in my old house and protect my baby's breathing.

So the Miele libra has entered my life as of today and it's ...well a revelation. I no longer have to get my husband to help me get the machine out of the closet, and cleaning the hallway carpet with it was like gliding on easy and effortless. It fits nimbly under furniture, including old dressers and sideboards (that's a big reason why I wanted this power brush, not just that it's cheaper than the other two) which is so important for me; and is both light and powerful. And quiet. About choosing a power brush: I have just one thickish (old, and i'd like to get rid of it) carpet, and I find that this power brush does require some muscle work to move over it, but it is OK and...

Good and bad
This unit is heavy, a little over 20 lbs with the wand and power head attached in the carry position. I weighed it. I believe this weight is due mostly to the metal telescopic extension wand and high quality motors in both the main unit and the brush head. And yes, I know this review is too long for most people to read, but I figure if you are putting out this much money you would want to know certain things.

We or rather she has used it only a few times since Christmas 2011 and have observed the following.

1) It is very quiet, even on its highest setting. I would say between 33 and 50% quitier than our old Fantom Lighting canister vacuum we bought back in about 1996.

2) The suction is excellent. Removed test particles right up against a wall on a hard wood floor using either the Parquet Floor Brush or the power head(turned off).

3) The power head is hard to push on carpet even with power to the brushes on. I am talking about what in the...
Good vacuum - accessories expensive
I replaced a Kenmore canister with this Meile Libra Canister. I have two large dogs that shed and I was looking for something that was good at cleaning a variety of floors and furniture. I had orginally wanted the Cat and Dog Canister, but was told it was no longer available and this one was better.

PROS: the suction is unbelievable and it cleans like no other vacuum. For this reason alone - I LOVE it.
It seem to be really sturdy and well built.

CONS: I had to purchase (seperately) the adjustable height floor tool as the one that came with the Libra was impossible to use on my carpet (which is not a high pile). You would think for almost $900 that it would just come with this tool.
Also had to purchase seperately, the mini turbo power brush for cleaning my furniture.
The power button is not on the wand, but on the canister which I hate.
The power cord is reasonable length but shorter that what I am used to so I have to change plugs...
