MIELE TRIFLEX HX1 CAT AND DOG STICK VACUUM CLEANER SMML0
Buy The Miele Triflex HX1 Cat and Dog Cordless, Bagless Stick Vacuum Cleaner
If you have pet hair and you are looking for the most powerful, easy-to-use cordless stick vacuum in the market and you have bare floors such as hardwood, ceramic, laminate and tile, as well as Area rugs, wall-to-wall carpets and or carpeted stairs. Miele Triflex HX1 is Miels's middle of the line cordless, bagless stick vacuum cleaner. As far as suction, performance, warranty, capacity and functionality are concerned, this model is the same as the other two models, except it gets a second attachment. A mini Electrobrush that is ideal for picking up pet hair from upholstery and furniture and carpeted stairs. That is what makes this a "Cat and Dog" model. Except for its power, build quality, and performance, the most exclusive feature of the Miele Triflex HX1 is its versatility in the type of configuration you can use it in. Most cordless stick vacuum cleaners are essentially the same design. The motor unit and the dust bin are positioned at the top of the vacuum. That is called the "Reach" configuration. The advantage of this design is that it allows you to reach harder to reach places easily. However, there are a couple of problems with this design. One is that they tend to be very Top-Heavy. That means a lot of weight on your hands and shoulders, especially if you use the vacuum for any length of time longer than a few minutes. The other problem with the "Reach" design is that the vacuum can not stand independently. It either has to be attached to its charging station or leaned against a wall or furniture piece. With the Miele Triflex, you have the option to change the configuration to Comfort mode easily. That reduces the weight placed on your hand and shoulders by 50%. Another advantage of comfort mode is that the vacuum is self-standing in this position, so no need to lean it against a wall while pausing vacuuming. That also removes the need to drill holes to install the charging dock to your walls. So you have many options as to how you would like to store and charge your vacuum. There is also the third configuration, of course, which is called the "handheld" configuration. This configuration is perfect for cleaning above-floor surfaces such as your countertops, baseboards and staircases.

At 3.6 Kg (7.9 Lbs), Miele Triflex is super light and easy to use but maintains enough weight for the floor head to stay firm and steady on the floor. In "Reach" configuration, the handle wights just over 4.8 lbs. In the "Comfort" configuration, it weighs about 2.2 lbs. That an impressive 50% difference from one configuration to another.
Up To 120 Min Run Time
The Triflex HX1 comes with 2, but uses 1 replaceable VARTA Li-Ion battery for up to 60 minutes run-time. That means you get a total run time of 120 minutes with this model. That is an impressive run time. And unlike a lot of other stick vacuum cleaners in the market, the battery is not built-in. It can be removed. That means if the battery fails or can not hold the charge any longer, you have no option but to dispose of the vacuum. Run Times (Min): 120 Minutes - Minimum suction setting without Electrobrush attached. 68 Minutes - Mid suction setting with Electrobrush attached. 34 Minutes - Maximum suction setting with Electrobrush attached. Charge Time: Up to 4 hours.
This configuration is best suited for reaching under beds, sofas, furniture, and high ceiling corners, a very common design for Bagless, Cordless stick vacuum cleaners. Most of the stick vacuum cleaners are made only in this configuration. However, when vacuuming your entire house or apartment, this configuration can feel heavy and exert unwanted pressure on your hands and shoulders.
In the Comfort position, the motor and the dust bin are placed lower on the wand. That means it distributes the weight and makes it easier on your arms and shoulders. As a matter of fact, in this configuration, the Vacuum handle exerts about 50% less pressure on hands and shoulders. The machine can also stand on its own in this position. Use this configuration when using your vacuum as your primary vacuum cleaner. Also, since the vacuum is self-standing in this configuration, you do not have to mount the charging station to your walls.
The handheld position is perfect for quick cleanups on stairs, sofas, couches, in the car and around the kitchen table.
Flexible Mounting Options
The Triflex is completely designed around you. It's all about how you choose to use it and how you choose to store it. You have three options as to how you can store your Triflex HX1. Like all other stick vacuum cleaners that mount onto the wall by installing the charging dock, you can choose to store your Triflex in the reach position mounted on the wall. Your second option is to mount the docking station onto the wall but in the comfort position. However, you also have the option not to drill holes in your wall and store and charge your Triflex in the self-standing configuration.
Most stick vacuum cleaners have charging mounts that need to be mounted on the wall using screws. Also, When vacuuming, if you have to stop to move furniture around or pause for any reason, you would have to lay the machine down or lean it against the wall. That can be a pain in the neck. However, with Miele Triflex, when in the comfort configuration, the machine can stand independently on its own. That removes the need for you to install a bracket on the wall or lean it against a surface, risking the inevitable fall.
Triflex HX1 Filtration
Filtration has always been one of the strong suits with Miele vacuum cleaners. The Triflex HX1 comes with a HEPA LIFETIME FILTER that captures and filters 99.99% of all microscopic particles and allergens. This is achieved by Miele's mono-cyclone Vortex technology, which separates the coarse, heavy particles from the fine dust particles.
TWIST2OPEN 0.5 Liter Dust Container
The Twist2open feature allows you to open it easily with a single twist.
Variable Suction Control
The Miele Triflex has three suction settings. Low, Medium and High. In addition to that, Miele Triflex stays on with the flip of a switch, eliminating the need for continuous finger compression
