Product Description

Compare Miele S5 Vacuums

Recommended for medium to high pile carpeting and smooth flooring, the Miele Capricorn S5981 S5 Galaxy HEPA vacuum cleaner offers your choice of 10 1/2" wide electric powerbrush for standard cleaning or 13 5/8" wide powerbrush ideal for thick pile and pet hair.

A parquet floor brush also is included to thoroughly but gently clean wood and tile floors.

The convenient plus and minus (+ / -) on-handle controls are on the deluxe ergonomic handle, so you can quickly adjust the Miele Capricorn's power to six levels, depending on the type of flooring you're cleaning or surface you're dusting. 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.

The Vortex Motor System packs the power of 1200-watt performance. It is designed for optimal power usage through the airflow for great cleaning performance with superior dust intake.

The three smooth-running 360° caster wheels mounted on steel axles ensure maximum stability and maneuverability for your Miele Capricorn vacuum cleaner. They are cleverly designed with a travel ramp to help you maneuver your vacuum easily over thresholds and around obstructions.

The Miele Capricorn S5 Galaxy canister vacuum includes an extra long cord to avoid the need of having to change sockets halfway through vacuuming. Together with the hose and suction tube, you have an operating radius of 33 feet.

Sealed System construction with Miele's Active HEPA filter not only captures and retains tiny, lung-damaging particles (including dust mite feces and pollen), it also uses the same Generally Activated Charcoal filter (GAC) that the Active Air Clean filter uses to absorb odors.

The 4.76 quart AirClean dustbag provides additional filtration and features a self-closing collar that automatically seals the bag as soon as the dust compartment lid is opened.

All Miele vacuums are known for their quiet operation, but a special sound insulation makes the Miele Capricorn S5 Galaxy canister vacuum particularly quiet. The new silence setting combines the lowest noise output with the ideal power level for optimum cleaning results.

For short breaks, the wand and floor tool can simply be inserted into the park system with automatic motor shutoff on the back of the barrel. This allows you to answer the door or the telephone without having to find an unsafe resting place for the wand or laying it on the floor.

For safe storage and easy transportation, two fittings allow the telescopic wand assembly to be hooked onto the barrel when it is upright - one on either side. So no matter whether you are right-handed or left-handed, the Miele Capricorn S5 Galaxy canister vacuum offers you an ideal solution. If you need to carry the vacuum cleaner up and down stairs, you will have the other hand free to hold on to the railing.

The fully integrated bumper strip made from soft plastic goes all the way around the vacuum to protect both furniture and the vacuum in the event of a collision.

A neat, on-board storage compartment holds three accessories: a crevice nozzle for hard to reach corners, an upholstery tool for all those crumbs on the couch and a dusting brush for the cobwebs in the corners are always on hand, whenever you need them.

Additional standard features of the Miele Capricorn include filter indicator, overheating indicator, a stainless steel telescopic wand and safety shut-off to prevent overheating.

Warranty: 7-year suction motor; 7-year casing; 1-year all non-wearing components.
