miele vacuum attachment: stb205 or seb217?

Posted by gfries (My Page) on

I've got a three level townhouse with 10% tile, 40% carpet, and 50% laminate. I'm buying a Miele S6 canister, and want to know if I should get the Dimension or the Dimension Plus (in Canada - Purple or Blue). I have medium pile nylon carpet. It looks like the lower model comes with a better smooth floor tool as well. Tough decision. Please share your experiences with these tools on your surfaces.

Because you have carpet, the Dimension Plus is the better vac to buy. It has the electric wand, which one needs for the electric powered Turbobrush carpet head (that comes with it).

The Turbobrush that comes with the regular Dimension really is not going to get your carpet clean. It is not electric and has no "beater bars". This is really more important than whichever parquet tool you get for the hard flooring. Hard flooring is easy to vacuum with any attachment. Carpet is trickier and harbors more dust, pet hair, dander, etc.

I made sure both my Miele canisters (Gemini and Delphi) had the electric wand & turbobrush carpet head.

When we bought our Miele Gemini, we opted for the eb217 Electro Plus head. We could have paid extra for an even more powerful head. As it turns out, the eb217 works very well on carpeting.

We also have the Parquet Twister floor attachment which came with it, and that services our tile and wood floors- which 99% of our home is now. I would not get anything below the eb217 head to do carpeting.

I also can't seem to find the models to which you refer with both dimension and s6 in the title or description.

If you download the eBrochure from here, they list the Canadian models and their included attachments.
