The Miele S5281 Libra Canister Vacuum Cleaner efficiently cleans low- to medium-pile carpets, tile, hardwood, and smooth surfaces. Great for asthma- and allergy-sufferers, this HEPA vacuum captures common allergens such as dust, pet dander, and pollen and traps them in the chamber. The Miele S5281 Libra Vacuum is 100% sealed, so you never have to worry about collected debris seeping out of the vacuum and into your indoor environment. Additionally, this canister vacuum features an Auto-Seal dustbag that automatically closes when you open the vacuum door. The Miele S5281 Libra Canister Vacuum offers quiet operation with an insulated 1,200 watt motor.
Designed to thoroughly clean various surfaces without polluting the air, the Miele S5 Libra Vacuum not only cleans your home, but also treats the air that comes through and out of the vacuum. In addition to a pre-motor filter that protects the vacuum motor from collecting dirt, this Miele S5 vacuum cleaner also includes an Active HEPA Filter.
The HEPA filter captures 99.99% of dust mites, pet dander, pollen, and other particles as small as 0.3 microns and releases clean air back into your space. Additionally, this sealed filter cartridge also features a layer of activated charcoal for odor control. The Generally Activated Charcoal material absorbs food and pet odors and deodorizes foul smells in the dustbag.
For more effective odor control, you can swap out the Active HEPA Filter with Miele's Active Air Clean Filter (sold separately). This filter blends the Air Clean filtration technology with an activated charcoal cassette to absorb pet and household odors better than the Active HEPA Exhaust Filter. The Active Air Clean Filter also captures and retains 99.5% of allergen particles as small as 0.5 microns.
The Miele Libra Vacuum Cleaner features a rotary dial power selector that allows you to adjust the motor speed and suction power according to the surface you are cleaning. The rotary power selector includes six adjustable power levels with a user-friendly icon for each setting. Using the manual knob, you can increase or decrease the suction power from minimum to maximum for the following applications:
The Miele Libra S5281 Canister Vacuum Cleaner contains a convenient compartment on the front panel that stores the dusting brush, crevice tool, and turbo nozzle. The onboard tools are easily accessible and are very useful when transporting the vacuum up and down the stairs or from room to room. By keeping these integrated accessories on hand, you can easily transition from vacuuming your floors to cleaning upholstery and sofa cushions with no hassle. Simply press the compartment lid release button, remove the tool you need to use, and attach it to the telescopic wand for quick above-floor cleaning. Attachment tools include:
Many vacuum cleaners pick up loads of dirt and debris off of your floors and upholstery only to distribute tiny particles back into your indoor air through the exhaust vent or out of the dustbag opening. The Miele Libra Vacuum Cleaner uses an AirClean FilterBag, which features self-locking technology.
When the vacuum door is opened, the dustbag automatically snaps closed, making it impossible for captured debris particles to be released back into your home. The Auto-Seal filter bag features a quick-snap hook that makes it easy to lift the bag out of the vacuum chamber and easily discard the dustbag without getting dirt on your hands or distributing dust particles back into the air.
The dustbag is made of 9 layers of electrostatically charged woven fibers that effectively capture and contain dirt, dust, and debris particles. Each AirClean Filter Bag holds 4.76 quarts of collected debris. Type G/N replacement dustbag packs (sold separately) include four dustbags, a replacement pre-motor filter, and an exhaust filter.

Comments about Miele S5281 Libra Canister Vacuum Cleaner:
Basically as the title says this replaced a Dyson DC23 as my wife was finding that particular unit hard to maneuver and I was finding it gross to empty out. My mother has had a miele S314 for more than 10 years and she is still extremely happy with it so we decided to buy the Libra. We have hardwood floors with some medium pile area rugs. I actually vacuumed and found it easy to push along. The power head that comes with this unit is not height adjustable but lowering the suction power to the default setting (the one with the ear) worked great on our area rugs. After giving the apartment a thorough vaacuming I was impressed by all the dirt and lint that this unit managed to pull out. I listed the price of bags/filters as a con but in my opinion the mess it saves you vs. a "bagless" unit is worth the cost, I also listed that as a con since my wife vaacums about 2-3 times a week.
