Miele S5481 Earth Vacuum Cleaner Description

miele s5 earth review

The many Miele models look an awful lot alike at first glance and the models numbers all appear to be similar, so trying to determine which Miele model is best for you can be a frustrating experience. 

The main feature that sets the Miele Earth S5481 vacuum apart from the other vacuums in the S5 galaxy series is a great automatic power feature.  The Miele Earth will automatically adjust the power settings based on the type of surface you are vacuuming. A great time saver and very useful addition.

The features you will need to compare when shopping for a Miele vacuum cleaner are the type of controls the vacuum comes equipped with (these can be dial controls, handle controls, or step controls), and the type of floor tools that it comes with out of the box.

The Miele Earth comes with Step Controls and the SEB217 Electric Floor Tool. For the most part, the main difference in the S5 models are the controls.  You will need to decide if step controls fit you better than the dial or handle controls.  Most S5 models can use any of the power tools.  For example, you can always upgrade the SEB217 Electric Floor Tool to the SEB236 and it also accept other powered floor tools by Miele.

Sample Customer Reviews

Positive Customer Reviews

I absolutely love the automatic setting for power.  Never do you have to concern yourself with setting the correct power level. I've never used a vacuum with so much suction that makes so little noise.  Awesome.
-- Rich

I love owning an eco friendly vacuum.  It works great, it's quiet, love the auto power, and the fact that the Miele Earth saves energy and lasts forever sold it for me.  Throwing away vacuums every year is terrible for the enviornment.
