Poor At Cleaning Pet Hair

One Miele Classic C1 owner thought the product was not good at cleaning pet hair. Two years ago Trusted Reviews said “Poor pet hair carpet cleaning” in their Miele Classic C1 review.

Quite Small Operating Radius

Vacuums that came out around the same time as the Classic C1 have operating radiuss of between 1.1m and 27m. The Miele Classic C1 has a fairly small operating radius (only 9 meters) compared to most of the other vacuums of a similar type and age to the Classic C1.

We compared all the other 9m operating radius vacuums to this vacuum and we think the ZVC215[pl_2538671_price], and the Pluser[pl_2546901_price] both from Zelmer which is cheaper; or the Zelmer ZVC305SK[plb_2538705_price] which has better reviews are also worth considering.

If this vacuum operating radius is not big enough for you then you might also want to look at the Numatic James Hoover JVP180-A1[plb_2665508_price] (26.8m and higher rated).
