I would recommend this SEBO. It's got newer turbo brush an hard floor tool. The kombi tool that comes with Pet version of E1 is absolutely rubbish and flimsy.
Or like Parwaz7862
, the newest Dyson's upright. We've had it for a week now and so far so good. Comparing to older Small Ball that we had, this one is much quieter and it's easier to empty. 4 tools that are great. 5 years warranty.. I'm really sure that if you look after vacuum it will last. Obviously there's more maintenance than on bagged.
And cleans mint. When we took it to my partner's sister who owns DC14 and vacuumed her shaggy rug, I had to empty the bin on our new Small Ball twice. And she was shocked as apparently she vacuumed a week ago.
Long strechy hose. Just put the vacuum against something and it won't fall over. Nice dusting brushes with soft bristles.
I must say that SEBO's dusting brush is absolutely awful. Stiff bristles and there's just so many of them that when I was vacuuming, the dirt was just stopping on bristles.
I also really like the look of Small Ball Allergy.
I must say I liked SEBO Felix too despite its flaws like poor hard floor cleaning and blowing hot air when you use it to vacuum sofa or chair. It's so nice that you can so easily use hose on them.
Never used Sebo's X series but it just doesn't seem appealing at all. I've watched a lot of vids about this series and it doesn't seem to clean carpets well. On vids it takes few passes to clean pet hair or flour from black carpet.
It's heavy and bulky. And so what that you can use extra hose to vacuum steps. It just seems so time consuming, getting another hose, connecting it, vacuuming, disconnecting hose and then putting it away.
You must have some wrong information cause the only Miele that gets higher than C for carpet cleaning is Bllizard with B.
We've had C2 Compact. Light and quiet but no onboard tool storage and tools on the clip are just annoying and get in the way or just fall off.
