  • Recommended for medium pile carpeting and hard floor surfaces.
  • Eco-friendly default intelligent automatic power setting selects the best level for the floor surface.

The eco-friendly Miele Earth vacuum cleaner conserves energy without sacrificing performance.

The Miele Earth's intelligent automatic power setting is on by default to select the best power level for the floor surface being cleaned. This ensures the most economical use of energy, and because the guesswork has been eliminated you don't need to adjust the power level yourself.

For those rare times when you do want to control the suction power yourself, just use the convenient plus and minus (+ / -) step-on button controls with LED indicator to adjust power to any of three settings. Easy to understand graphic symbols indicate which setting is best suited for different kinds of surfaces, such as rugs and carpets, drapes or hard floors.

    • Parquet floor brush is included to thoroughly but gently clean wood and tile floors.
    • Default intelligent automatic setting selects the power level to ensure the most economical use of energy.
    • Deluxe ergonomic handle keeps the strain off your wrist.
    • 1200-watt Vortex Motor System provides optimal power usage through the airflow for great cleaning performance with superior dust intake.
