Miele S5280 Miele


Canister Vacuum
MSRP: $699










Vacuum Highlights

  • Deluxe full-size canister vacuum with sealed HEPA filter system and dustbag.

  • The Active HEPA (High-Efficiency Particulate Air) 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.

  • This Miele filter conforms to the new stringent European standard for filtration (EN 1822) which means that it actually traps 99.99% of all particles as tiny as 0.3 of a micron. These filters are designed to only be replaced after 50 hours of use, or approximately 12 months.

  • Steel telescopic wand, on-board tools, upholstery nozzle, 10 amp motor, floor brush, and suction control.
