The popular Miele Antares canister vacuum cleaner has been discontinued. Fortunately, it has been replaced by the Miele Neptune vacuum, the same machine at the same price, but in a different color. The old Antares was Mango Red, and the new Miele Neptune is Turquoise Blue. Otherwise, the Miele Neptune vacuum offers the same power, performance and ease of use that made the Miele Antares our choice for best lightweight canister vacuum cleaner.
A convenient six-position dial suction control adjusts power from 200 watts to 1200 watts. The STB 205-3 turbobrush provides excellent cleaning for low to medium pile and gives the carpet an excellent finish, with an additional floor tool, the SBB 300-3 Parquet Floor Brush, that lets the Miele Neptune thoroughly, but gently, clean tile and wood floors.
In addition, the Miele Neptune canister vacuum uses the new Miele Hyclean dustbag that provides additional filtration and features a self-closing collar that automatically seals the bag as soon as the dust compartment lid is opened
