Vacuuming at the highest level: the new Miele S8

With Miele's new S8, vacuuming turns into a great experience in every respect: The exclusive design promises best quality, top performance and well-thought-through convenience – a promise this vacuum cleaner lives up to in every way.
The new flagship model was awarded the coveted 'red dot design award' even before it was launched and is now available from the retail trade. Several USPs, patents pending, offer excellent convenience such as the DynamicDrive swivel castors.  These castors run on small air-filled tyres and also feature shock absorbers. This combination gives perfect suspension and quiet-running properties, particularly on structured hard floors.

Another highlight: Suction can either be adjusted via convenient foot-operated +/- switches or - even more conveniently - from the handle. There is no need to stoop. Models with an 'Automatic' setting adjust suction of their own accord to various floor coverings. Further convenient comforts result from the redesigned Park System to accommodate short breaks in vacuum cleaning by letting the user simply hook the floorhead onto the rear of the vacuum cleaner. On models with an 'Automatic' setting, this also even switches the motor off.
Another highly practical feature is the DeLuxe cable rewind: The entire length of cable disappears into the machine simply by briefly tapping the footswitch. In contrast to the previous series, the S8 boasts an enlarged operating radius of 11 m (previously 10 m). The S8 also features a supple all-round bumper strip. This visually attractive detail prevents damage to furniture and the appliance itself in the event of minor collisions.

With a weight of only 5.4 kg, the S8 weighs in at 700 g lighter than its predecessor. At the same time it offers maximum cleaning performance: Consumers going for maximum output are likely to opt for the 'Power' motor with its 2200 W rating. Consumers with a focus on low energy consumption find that the EcoLine and 'Silence' models (each with 1200 W) more to their liking.

Unique: S8 UniQ

The new flagship model is the S8 UniQ, offering additional convenience features: a DeLuxe handle with SpotLight, illuminating the area being cleaned using an integrated high-power LED. And the LED lighting integrated into the side Park System immerses the area around the product in a pleasant light for a further 30 seconds or so after switch-off. This simplifies storage in dark cupboards and storage areas.
