Product Description

Compare Miele S5 Vacuums

Galaxy S5 HEPA vacuum performance with new, more powerful powerbrush and deluxe ergonomic handle.

FREE Next Day Air Shipping for This Miele Vacuum!

The Miele S5 Miele Callisto is one of the most versatile, easy-to-use machines in Miele’s canister line. It comes with a 14”-wide electric powerbrush with five levels of height adjustment, giving you optimum cleaning for any type of carpeting. The Miele Callisto also includes a Parquet Twister floor brush with soft bristles that gently sweep your hard surface floors as you vacuum.

For additional cleaning flexibility, there’s a crevice tool, upholstery tool, and dusting brush, which are all ready when needed in the convenient on-board tool storage compartment. The Miele Callisto’s sleek, easy-to-store design features three parking system slots for the wand and floor tool, keeping the machine neat and orderly whether stored in a closet or if you need to take a break to answer the door.

The Miele Callisto’s Active HEPA filter and Sealed System construction trap particles down to .03 microns, keeping them from escaping with the vacuum exhaust while all the “big stuff” is held securely in the four-layered, self-sealing 4.76 quart dust bag.

The six suction settings on the Miele Callisto rotary dial let you control the powerful 1200W Vortex Motor to let you choose the right amount of suction for your task, from drapes and furniture to smooth floors to rugs to carpets. There’s also Miele’s patented silent setting for powerful suction with minimal noise output.

A fully-integrated bumper strip protects your furniture from accidental scratching, and the deluxe ergonomic handle makes the chore of vacuuming easier on your wrist. For added protection, 360º casters and rubber wheels make sure you’re never dragging the vacuum, and built-in travel ramps help the wheels transition smoothly from carpet to hard floors.

The extra-long cord gives the Miele Callisto a whopping 33-foot operating radius, so you won’t need to constantly switch outlets. And if the Miele Callisto runs over something it shouldn’t (like the dreaded stray sock), its safety shut-off feature stops the motor before it overheats.
