Product Description

Recommended for medium to high pile carpeting and smooth flooring, the Miele S5 Galaxy S5980 Capricorn HEPA vacuum cleaner includes a 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 power to six levels, depending on the type of flooring you're cleaning or surface you're dusting. 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. 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 capacity Intensive Clean Plus dustbag provides 15% improved filtration and 20% longer suction performance. Impact foil prevents sharp-edged objects, such as pine needles, glass and sand, from penetrating the bag. All Miele vacuums are known for their quiet operation, but a special sound insulation makes the Miele S5 Galaxy Capricorn canister vacuum particularly quiet. The new silence setting combines the lowest noise output with the ideal power level for optimum cleaning results. 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 include filter indicator, overheating indicator, a stainless steel telescopic wand and safety shut-off to prevent overheating. Warranty: 7-year suction motor; 1-year all non-wearing components.

Customer Reviews:
  • Miele Capricorn Eats Pet Hair for Lunch!
    There is not a better power-nozzle available for pet hair. The Miele Capricorn with the 236 power-nozzle is the best way to win the never ending battle of cleaning pet hair.

    I have a 80 pound Staffordshire Terrier. No matter where I go, the pet hair follows. It is mission impossible to keep my house pet hair free. With as much vacuuming as we do in our house, (as well as a nice employee discount) I decided to get the best.

    I have always heard good things about Miele from my customers. Every customer that comes to our store I will ask them how their vacuums are working. Most vacuums I'll get the usual, I hate it, it sucks, it smells funny, etc. When I ask a Miele customer buying bags how they like their vacuum, 9 times out of 10 the answer is I LOVE IT! Never did I expect such enthusiasm from people about their vacuum. Only after hearing so many customers tell me how good their Miele was, and after seeing how few Miele repairs I was doing, did I become a believer myself.

    I have had the Miele Capricorn in my home for two years now. I have never had one problem with my vacuum. Vacuuming is never fun, but when you have a good vacuum, it becomes a lot less stressful of a task.

    The STB 101 hand held turbo brush is a must have weapon in the war of pet hair. This brush is ideal for my stairs and upholstery that seems to get covered in pet hair more then any other place.

    You will pay more money for a Miele, but the time you will save vacuuming is priceless....more info
