The Miele S5 Earth was a remarkable vacuum cleaner due to some outstanding features for its day. The Automatic Setting gave the Earth the ability to automatically regulate the suction setting as you vacuum – from floors to drapes to upholstery and beyond. It also featured Miele’s incredible HEPA filtration for the highest air quality available in a cleaner.
The Earth S5481 offered an electric powerhead ideal for medium to low-pile carpeting. The Earth also came with a brush for your hard floors and a full accessory set housed under the canister hood.
Your Miele Earth may be about a decade old, today, and it’s likely you’re beginning to consider an upgrade. The Miele Earth was an exceptional cleaner and we’ve collected a couple options that will be comparable to it. When it comes time to replace your Earth, start by shopping one of these new Mieles!
Comparable To Your Earth
The Miele Marin Complete C3 is one of Miele’s most impressive vacuums. Like your Earth, the electric wand and carpet tool (the SEB236 Electrobrush) powerfully clean carpet. Because the Marin’s Electrobrush beater-bar is powered by electricity (and not the suction) it’s able to dig deep into the carpet fibers for a true cleaning. But unlike your Earth, the Marin’s powerhead features an extra bright LED light to guide your path.
Also new is the Automatic Stand-By function. When you place the wand in the rear-park position, the Marin will automatically power off. Remove the wand and it powers back on. This is incredibly helpful for those necessary quick pauses in vacuuming like to answer the phone or move a piece of furniture.
The Marin will certainly be an easy transition from your Earth. It’s a perfect model if you simply want the fantastic vacuum quality of the Earth without any additional frills. But what if you want a little upgrade? Keep reading!
An Upgrade From Your Earth
If your Earth has been great but you’re ready for an upgrade, the Miele Brilliant Complete C3 is the absolute best! The Brilliant Complete C3 is Miele’s leading canister vacuum.
The Brilliant comes standard with Miele’s best, HEPA filtration. The power controls are also available at your fingertips for uninterrupted vacuuming. You’ll also recognize the powerful electric carpet tool but with the addition of a bright LED light. The Brilliant also comes standard with the extra wide, 16-inch hard floor tool.
The velvet bumper strip found only on the Miele Brilliant is designed to keep even the most valuable furniture protected from any scuffs or bumps. And with Miele’s exclusive automatic setting function, you can allow the machine to automatically adjust to different power levels when the vacuum detects the need to. Or, simply use the convenient handle switches to set the six power levels from 1200 all the way down to 300 watts for every cleaning need, from draperies to carpeting.
There are also beautiful ambient lights that highlight the underbody of the canister and the side-park location. Speaking of the parking system, the Brilliant includes “Automatic StandBy” in the rear-park setting – place the wand in the rear-park and the unit powers down automatically; remove the wand and it starts back up!
