Miele S7/U1 vacuums
« on: September 03, 2016, 03:09:03 AM »
I really want a Miele S7 or a U1, I'm not a geek of Miele but want to be so make me one if you can ;D
Anyone ever had or tried the Miele S7 Upright? I am quite interested in owning my first Miele.. :icon_nod:

Also.. they are so expensive even when used and are hardly on eBay! Why???  :'(
DC14s are tanks, just need a slightly longer motor life. Do plastic parts often break on DC14s? Nope. DC41- Sexy looking futuristic and powerful machine. Just needs a better designed cleaner head wheel and cyclone clip along with a dense metal rod in the chassis.

I've had an S7 for nearly 6 years now, and while not perfect it is very good. It cleans very well,has been well thought out (lots of small touches), good capacity and fairly nice in use (for example it goes lower than most dyson uprights). And of course quiet with good filtration.

Plus it still has my favorite tool setup of any upright I've ever owned, it is very stable, has a fairly long hose with a nice handle (and not much "pull back") plus 3 separate tools which I like, and of course variable suction.

Although they are very big, and quite heavy (It basically is a cylinder with a large powerhead shoved together). And they have more quality issues than the cylinders I have found.

Although I have never been to the U.K, from what I've seen of the homes the S7 really might be a bit too big for the average house.

Thanks for the info! :) I don't mind big heavy uprights, I quite like them actually, lol. I have a thick bedroom carpet which is a deep pile plush and was wondering if the S7 would excel with this? I believe there's grit deep down because when it was new it was nice and thick but it's about 3 years old now and the pile has gone thinner.

The only vacuum I have used which works really well on it is my DC41 Mk2 but the cleaner head is quite lightweight so doesn't dig really deep down, though it did pull out a lot of crap up to the surface from when I thought it was clean. Have you tried one of the new Dyson balls with a purple brushroll? Would love to know how the performance of those compare to a Miele S7

Thanks ;)

So lucky, there's hardly any on eBay either! Are they not popular? Lol.

Thanks! thumbsup: I'm watching the Silver one, the Shpock one is quite far. I hope the Silver one has a few scuff marks instead of scratched paintwork on the bad door though!
