The Miele C3 Alize is a perfect synergy of design and functionality, Miele's C3 series sets new standards in floor care. Superior engineering is balanced with carefully-selected, fine quality materials such as a durable stainless steel wand and specialized ABS plastic with a hard, impact-resistant surface. The C3 series features innovative skeleton construction. Other conveniences include a 36-foot operating radius and foot pedal controls for quick and effective cleaning. C3 also features a silence motor to maintain a quiet environment, and an AirClean Sealed System that not only vacuums your floors - but also cleans the air your family breathes. Miele's C3 Alize vacuum cleaner features an AirTeQ Combination floor tool ideal for cleaning low pile carpeting, rugs and smooth flooring. The AirTeQ has streamlined airflow for uninterrupted floor contact as you switch from smooth flooring to carpeting. Alize offers a savvy, self-adjusting Automatic setting. As you transition from hardwoods to carpeting, the Alize automatically decreases suction, then increases suction when you return to smooth, solid flooring - saving you both time and energy. A telescopic, stainless steel wand and long electrical cord, with one-touch automatic rewind, provide a total cleaning radius of 36 feet. The C3 Alize is also equipped with a Deluxe Comfort Grip handle with LED headlight and six-stage suction controls, plus Automatic setting, via a +/- foot switch.
