The Miele Brilliant is called the "Powerline" for its powerful six-speed motor. Its motor is a one-of- a-kind Miele-made 1200 watt vortex that is recommended for all types of flooring from your thick plush carpets and rugs to your smooth tiled floors. The whisper-silent motor and its light-weight construction makes vacuuming easier and a more comfortable experience. Miele is famed for their top of the line filtration systems. The Brilliant uses an HEPA filter that meets Europe's stringent HEPA13 standards and captures over 99.95% down to 0.01 microns of lung-damaging particles. It uses a 4.76 quart AirClean filter bag with a self-sealed, spring-loaded collar which assists in the containment of dust and dirt; this keeps the dust and dirt in the bag instead of putting it back into the air on its way to the trash. In addition, the Brilliant has an interesting filter replacement indicator. It has been created with what is referred to as a "timestrip" which over the course of one year releases a red line of liquid reminding you to replace the filter. The Complete C3 Brilliant has a multitude of features. To prevent scratching your furniture and walls, as well as your vacuum, this top-of-the-line, moderately-sized vacuum includes a velvet bumper. LED underbody lights and the lighting around its base and sides allow you to see as you're cleaning, ensuring a well-cleaned floor. Your Brilliant also includes the SEB236 PowerBrush. This remarkable powerhead deep cleans your carpets and rugs, guaranteeing they are dirt and dust-free. Both the PowerBrush and the XL Parquet floor tool are made to clean large areas; and the XL Parquet floor tool is used to clean your hard floors. With its 36 ft. operating radius and long electrical cord, maneuverability of the canister is simple. The Brilliant was made to help you save energy with its automated system; it automatically turns off the vacuum when the parking system is activated. For more convenience, the vacuum's controls are located on the ergonomic handle. Standing up to any challenge, Miele's Brilliant is the flagship in its class of top-of-the-line canister vacuums, and is tested to last an average of twenty years. It comes with a 10-year motor and casing warranty with registration and a 5-year parts and labor warranty making it a brilliant investment.
