The Miele C1 series consists of their lightest weight canister vacuums, designed mostly for low pile carpets and rugs. They are very versatile and easy to move around, and can be equipped with a variety of attachments for most surfaces around your home. With a 30 foot cleaning range and their standard 1200 watt Vortex motor you can still handle larger sized rooms with relative ease. Another feature that you don’t normally find on models in this price range is quieter operation. Their “Silence System” consists of extra sound dampening insulation and a quieter operating motor, for lower noise than you might expect.
While you might think of the bagged Olympus as more of a low-end or budget vacuum cleaner, that isn’t really an accurate description. Sure it is their cheapest canister but that is more of a result of what it was designed to do rather than cheaper construction. Since it is built more for hardwood, tile, laminate, and linoleum floors it doesn’t come with a heavy duty turbo brush like their larger cleaners. It works great on low pile carpets too since you don’t need a beater bar for agitating deeply embedded dirt.
