If you’re looking for a top-of-the-line canister vacuum for medium pile carpeting and smooth flooring, look no further than the S5 Miele Libra. It’s simple, dependable, and its lightweight 10 1/2"-wide electric powerbrush does an excellent job on wool carpets, area rugs, and pet hair.

The SEB 217-3 Power Brush is driven by an independent motor, giving you the consistent power you need to effectively vacuum your carpets. The Parquet Twister floor tool is perfect for large areas of hardwood, tile or laminate floors. An on-board tool storage compartment holds the included crevice tool, upholstery nozzle, and dusting brush.

The Miele Libra comes with a fully-integrated bumper strip to protect furniture and baseboards during operation. Its 360º caster wheels mounted on steel axles help the Miele Libra glide smoothly and gently across the floor, and integrated travel ramps make for smooth transitions from hardwood to carpet. The Miele Libra has a 33-foot operating radius, reducing the number of times you change outlets. That’s due in part to its extra-long cord, easily retracted when the job is done by Miele’s automatic cord rewind system.

The Miele Libra has six levels of suction, adjusted by using the rotary dial. Miele’s patented Vortex Motor System delivers up to 1200 watts of power, and contains a safety shut-off feature to keep the motor from burning out. The Miele Libra’s special sound insulation keeps the noise down while you vacuum, and the new silent setting gives you optimum power with minimal noise output.

The Miele Libra comes standard with the Active HEPA Filter, keeping 99.97% of particles from re-circulating in your home. Everything else is held in the 4.76 quart AirClean Dust bag, and the Sealed System keeps the tiniest allergens inside the canister.

Other features include an integrated park system, which securely stores the floor tool and stainless steel telescopic wand.
