Imagine an upright that pivots easily around chair legs - and reaches right under beds, coffee tables and other low furniture. The Miele U1 Series features breakthrough SwivelNeck technology that lets you steer your upright with little more than a turn of your wrist or even extend it into its unique flatto-the-floor position. So instead of having to move furniture while cleaning, you'll maneuver around and under it. The control and responsiveness of the U1 Series is perfectly complemented by its outstanding versatility. With an independently powered, spring-loaded roller brush, these AirClean Sealed System vacuum cleaners are capable of lifting dirt, dust and debris from the deepest pile carpets in one swift pass and then transitioning gracefully to a smooth surface, such as a polished hardwood floor.
