Need help with alternatives to a Dyson V10 Absolute [R]

I need something light and manoeuvrable, and just for cleaning a small 2 bed 70m2 house with both carpets and wood floors in wet areas.

My joints and spine are too crap for a normal heavy upright.

I probably will have to get this one unless someone can recommend something similarly sized and weighted with a cord for much less.

Thanks for any help.

We tend to like bagged canister vacs. For what it's worth, a canister vac keeps its weight on the ground and just drags behind you. It's about the same weight if you have to carry it up stairs, but it's in two parts so it's way easier to carry.

Check this guy out.

It's got both a powered carpet head and a hardwood floor head included. It's corded which is way more powerful. It's bagged so you have to empty it far less often. The compact is also pretty light. And it's about $120 less than the dyson.

That said, the total package weight on Amazon is 3x as much. That includes multiple heads and accessories, so it doesn't weigh that much in practice. If you have stairs, this will definitely be harder to move up and down. That said, doing my stairs is the ONLY time I ever even lift my vacuum; it's meant to roll, so you never really have to pick it up unless you're storing it somewhere weird.

Hope that helps!

Vacuum for 2 floor, 1500 sqft apartment [R]

Just moved into a new apartment and don't have a vacuum, as my previous one belonged to an old roommate that I no longer live with. I know from that vacuum that I never want to deal with the mess and problems of bagless again.

Kitchen, living room, and bathrooms are faux hardwood tile. The bedrooms and upstairs hall is medium to deep carpeting.

No real budget in mind but I'd like to keep the price as low as possible. I'd be very comfortable around $500-600 if the vacuum is going to serve it's purpose well and last longer than most that I've had experience with in the past. (Looking at you, Dyson.)

If it helps, the apartment was just built so the flooring is brand new.

If you're willing to spend the money once and be done, this would fit the bill. A Miele Compact C2 canister with a full electro brush for the deeper pile carpeting. This has some of the best filtration out there, and this is something that could last you 15-20 years, if not more. It uses bags that are very easy to replace, and are not dirty, as you described using bagless.

This is their compact body, which is a bit smaller, and has accessory storage on the outside on the hose, instead of having a larger body to hold all accessories inside. It's really nimble and follows behind you as you vacuum.

I know it's on the high end of your price range, but it will do everything you looking to do, it will last a long time, its easy to maintain, and it isn't dirty when replacing bags.


What are the differences between these two models?(Miele C1 vs C2) [R]

1 year, 5 months agoApril 14, 2018

So I'm looking for vacuums aroud 300 dollars, my house is half carpet half wood(floors 1 and 2 are wood, but all the stairs and floor 3 are carpet)

I don't have any pets.

I've found these two on amazon, but I'm not sure what the difference it




I have no knowledge on vacuums, and just from the names I'd think the C2 is the better one, and I can't find this model on the miele website to compare them. Anybody know the differences? Which one is better suited for my needs?

Allergy Sufferer Looking for a Better Vacuum! Need Suggestions! [R]

I have severe allergies and the $100 Hoover I bought from Costco isn't getting the job done. I have 2 cats and a dog, so a vacuum that is good with pet hair is a must. My doctor said a model with a true HEPA filter is a must as well. I also like the idea of bagged and upright. I have looked at getting the Kenmore Elite 31150, because it is bagged and had a HEPA filter, but I'd love some more suggestions! I'd like to keep the cost down, but it is more important that I have a high quality vacuum.

Miele canisters are suppose to very good at controlling particulates. Though I don't have any personal experience with Miele Compact C2 Electro+ Canister Vacuum, it's apparently the Wirecutter's best pick for filtering allergen. > Ultimately, some other vacuums match or nearly match the Miele models’ filtration, but we’re not aware of any that outperform it.

First, let's get the proof out of the way. So, now, I am managing our company's largest store, and am swamped with managerial duties, training employees, and dealing with annoying vendors. But, I'm taking some time out for all of you guys.

There are lots of new, exciting things that have recently come out/are coming soon!

For those who NEED the most power, I've got just the Crack you need! Since we last talked, there are new bagless and cordless vacuums on the market, and some other exciting things.

So, on to business...here's the copypasta.

First AMA

Second AMA

Last AMA

YouTube Channel Here's some basics to get you started:

  • Dollar for dollar, a bagged vacuum, when compared to a bagless, will almost always:

1) Perform better (Actual quality of cleaning).

2) Be in service for much longer.

3) Cost less to repair and maintain (Often including consumables).

4) Filter your air better.

Virtually every vacuum professional in the business chooses a bagged vacuum for their homes, because we know what quality is. Things you should do to maintain your vac, regularly:

1) Clear your brush roller/agitator of hair and fibers. Clear the bearing caps as well, if possible. (monthly)

2) Change your belts before they break. This is important to maintain proper tension against the agitator. (~ yearly for "stretch" belts)

3) Never use soap when washing any parts of your vacuum, including the outer bag, duct system, agitator, filters, etc. Soap attracts dirt, and is difficult to rinse away thoroughly.

  • Types of vacs:

1) Generally, canister vacs are quieter and more versatile than uprights are. They offer better filtration, long lifespans, and ease of use. They handle bare floors best, and work with rugs and carpets, as well.

2) Upright vacuums are used mostly for homes that are entirely carpeted. Many have very powerful motors, great accessories, and are available in a couple of different motor styles. Nothing cleans shag carpeting like the right upright.

3) Bagless vacs are available in a few different styles. They rely on filters and a variety of aerodynamic methods to separate the dirt from the air. In general, these machines do not clean or filter as well as bagged vacuums. They suffer from a loss of suction, and tend to clog repeatedly, if the filters are not cleaned or replaced often.

4) Bagged vacuums use a disposable bag to collect debris, which acts as your primary filter, before the air reaches the motor, and is replaced when you fill it. Because this first filter is changed, regularly, bagged vacuums tend to provide stronger, more consistent suction.

My last, best piece of advice is to approach a vacuum, like any appliance; Budget for the best one you can get. Buy one with idea you will maintain it, and use it for many years. And, for the love of Dog, do not buy from late-night infomercials or door-to-door salesmen! Stay out of the big-box stores, and visit your local professional who actually knows what they're talking about.

Best vacuum for $400 [R]

I've read through many of the vacuum guru's posts here on reddit and I decided that I want to buy a bagged upright vacuum, maybe on the higher end. I had a Dyson Cinetic before which was expensive at $500, and didn't work that well and was too heavy.

I wanted to buy a Riccar upright but can't find those in stock anywhere. Then I read Maytag vacuums are made by Riccar. Would I be ok getting a Maytag?

Thoughts appreciated.

Purchase help: 80% medium carpet, 20% tile, ~$500 [R]

As the title says, I am in the market for a new vacuum cleaner for my house. It is around 1500 SQ feet and is about 80% medium height carpet with 20% tile. I do have a large short haired dog that sheds. a decent amount.

I have a Miele C2 on the way from Amazon since it was on sale, but I wanted to see if anyone had any recommendations for something that might be a better fit.

If the C2 should be good for my needs, I'll be happy with that. I'm coming from a low-end Bissell, so anything will probably be an improvement. Thank you!
