With the Miele Complete C3 PowerLine, it's no longer necessary to stoop down to change the settings on the vacuum. That's because you can control this vacuum with your foot. If you'd like to vacuum a loose carpet after vacuuming the hard flooring, it's wise to use less suction. You can use your foot to press the minus button. Changing attachments isn't necessary with this vacuum. The included multi-surface brush allows you to vacuum both the hard flooring and the low-pile carpet. Would you like to dust off the coffee table, baseboards, or the TV cabinet? You can use the included small accessories. They're underneath the vacuum's hood, so they're always at hand and you won't easily lose them.
