Miele Powerhouse vacuum cleaners are some of the most powerful HEPA filter vacuums available today. There are three main models of the Miele Powerhouse currently for sale, which I’ll run through the details of below. They are all upright vacuum cleaners, and run from the basic to luxury models.
The Miele Powerhouse S183 would be considered the “basic” unit. Even so, the feature set is quite impressive. It’s a full-size, upright vacuum cleaner with a HEPA six-stage micron filtration system. The rubber wheels help protect against marring hard floors. The full-width roller brush provides edge-to-edge cleaning and the Clean dustbags help keep the dirt and dust from escaping. Also included with the Miele Powerhouse S183 is an extended crevice tool, dusting brush, a 7 ft stretch hose & a 22 ft cord.
The Miele Powerhouse S184 vacuum is the mid-range model. It includes everything the S183 model has, plus a few extras. The main feature added to this unit is the variable suction adjustment. Basically, this allows you to control the amount of suction you want the vacuum cleaner to have. This may be useful if you don’t want to suck up the rug, just the dust on the rug, etc. Also, the Miele Powerhouse S184 vacuum includes a headlight & a 25 ft cord.
The Miele Powerhouse S185 is the top-of-the-line version. This model is actually retired by Miele, so it may be a little hard to find. It’s the most powerful of the bunch. Not only does it include everything the S184 and S183 models have, but it also features advanced micron filtration, to give you even cleaner air. The Powerhosue S185 also includes an upholstery tool, a variable headlight & a 27 ft cord.
Overall, the Miele Powerhouse vacuum cleaner line is fairly highly rated by different review sites. Most users comment on the strength and ease of use of these machines. They love the adjustable suction feature on the S184 & S185 models, allowing them to clean curtains & like items with ease. The HEPA filter is of course worthy of accolade as well. The main thing that may hold some people back from buying a Miele Powerhouse vacuum is the steep price.
