Miele S2121 Olympus canister vacuum cleaner is an entry level cleaner which has been specifically designed to be used on low pile carpets and hardwood floors. If the directions of using it are followed well, the classical combination of this vacuum cleaner will produce the best performance. It is however not recommended for use on thick carpets. The miele S2121 Olympus canister vacuum cleaner does not have a brush roll which is turbine powered or motorized. Instead, it has a straight brush.
This canister vacuum cleaner has three canisters and does not flip or get caught on furniture. Its total weight is 13 pounds which is approximately half the weight of other available vacuum cleaners and does not make any annoying rattling sounds when in operation. It is actually one of the quietest vacuum cleaners available. The miele S2121 Olympus canister vacuum cleaner measures 9.4 inches by 22.7 inches by15.2 inches. The cleaning brush has a cleaning radius of 29.5 feet.
Since it lacks a motor operated brush roll, its performance mainly depends on its suction power. This makes it suitable for large debris but not very efficient with fine dust and dirt particles. In thick carpet fibers, these fine dust and dirt particles should be agitated out because suction alone is not enough to remove them. This machine can be used with disposable bags which are relatively large and each can hold about half a gallon of dirt. A five pack of packing bags costs about $15.
The canister vacuum cleaner is also compatible with HEPA filters, which are usually sold as a separate entity. A disadvantage of this machine however is that it has a very short cord. Although it is easy to move around the room with the extendable wand, cleaning the whole floor is quite a challenge since the cord is only 18 feet long. This means that the cord has to be unplugged and plugged to another outlet. It is however easy to suck crawling insects on the ceiling and clean curtains with the wand since it is extendable up to four feet.
The control of the sucking mechanism for the miele S2121 Olympus canister vacuum cleaner is through a rotary dial. The rotary dial allows six power settings which are variable and the output from the vortex motor system is about 3000 – 1200 watts. This output increases the performance and the intake of dust. This cleaner comes with a one year warranty for its accessories and parts. Also, among its features is an air clean filter, an upholstery tool, a crevice nozzle located on the vario clip and a brush for dusting.
This miele S2121 Olympus canister vacuum cleaner clears all the dusty mess without messing with the air and it is therefore recommended for home use, since every house has several hardwood floors.
