Miele Universal Upright Vacuum Cleaners Features

The Miele Universal Upright stick vacuum cleaners are highly versatile and share many of the great qualities of the larger Miele canister vacuum cleaners. While they are best suited for lighter and smaller area cleaning, like their canister counterpart, they exhibit many of the same
characteristics that makes Miele
a truly unique brand.

Miele Canister Vacuum Cleaner Features Lightweight. Both Miele Universal Upright vacuums are compact and lightweight. Each weighs 10 lbs. or less. Their slim design and light weight makes these uprights easy to use and store.
Miele Canister Vacuum Cleaner Features Compact Size. This compact size makes storage more convenient. They can easily be stored in closets, under beds or in any other small space.
Miele Canister Vacuum Cleaner Features Powerful Motor. Both of the uprights in the 160 series are powered by a 1000 watt motor. This German made workhorse provides superior suction in a compact package.
Miele Canister Vacuum Cleaner Features Sealed System Construction. A vacuum's most basic function is picking up dirt and particulate with suction. The suction is created as air is pulled completely through the system. While traditional vacuums are often less than efficient when it comes to retaining the smallest and most damaging particles, Miele's Sealed System is different. With the use of electrostatically charged filter bags, a HEPA filter and motor filter, Miele Universal Uprights effectively trap particles down to .3 microns. Instead of passing through fine particles are filtered out. They entire suction system is sealed to prevent dirty air from escaping. These measures work together to create the cleanest vacuum on the market today.
Miele Canister Vacuum Cleaner Features Simple, Clean Bag Replacement. Bag replacement is a cinch. All bags that fit the upright style vacuums have a surprisingly simple, yet efficient self sealing technology built into each back. So as you remove the full bag, it seals itself to avoid mess.
Miele Canister Vacuum Cleaner Features Best HEPA Filtration On The Market.* While a HEPA filter is not standard on both upright models, Miele offers an Active HEPA filter. The Active HEPA traps 99.99% of all particles .3 microns and larger. In addition to this, the Active HEPA comes with a thin layer of Generally Activated Charcoal (GAC) to absorb odors. The Active HEPA filter combined with the layer of GAC and a completely sealed system means vacuums with the HEPA feature act not only as a vacuum but also an air purifier.
Miele Canister Vacuum Cleaner Features Two Mini Attachments. Both models come standard with two mini attachments, a crevice tool and a upholstery tool. Both attachments fit into a small caddy that clips neatly to the wand.
Miele Canister Vacuum Cleaner Features Highly Customizable. The S168 and S163 come with multiple optional accessories. From HEPA filters to car cleaning kits the Miele uprights can be fitted with a range of accessories to best meet your needs. The S168 is capable of using electric powerbrushes. Whether your are cleaning hard flooring, carpet or drapes and upholstery, one of the Miele uprights will likely fit the bill.
Miele Canister Vacuum Cleaner Features Durable Body Construction. A durable, impact resistant ABS plastic shell is standard in all Miele Universal Uprights. This type of body is scratch and dent resistant as well as easily cleaned.
Miele Canister Vacuum Cleaner Features Extremely Wide Operating Radius. Each upright has a 26 ft. cord. With the length of the vacuum included, that's nearly a 30 ft. radius of cleaning that you can do all without having to unplug your vacuum.
Miele Canister Vacuum Cleaner Features Bag Change Indicator. A standard bag change indicator takes the guesswork out of when to change the bag in any of the canisters.
Miele Canister Vacuum Cleaner Features Long Life. The motor on each Miele comes with a seven year warranty, though all Mieles are tested and expected to last 1000 operating hours, approximately 20 years. Unlike other vacuum cleaners, a Miele is an investment.
Miele Canister Vacuum Cleaner Features Reputation. Whether it is adhering to the stringent EN 1822 European air filtration standard or putting their products through hundreds of hours of abusive testing, Miele is known for producing durable, quality products for over a century. Throughout the years their products have led the way in innovation, providing a balance between aesthetically pleasing form and unsurpassed functionality.
