The Classic C1 Cat & Dog comes in a stunning lotus white color and a foot switch on/off control and a rotary dial for the power setting (suction) control. It has 6 different power settings and adequately equipped with an SEB 228 floorhead. This Miele canister vacuum cleaner has a comfort grip handle for easy handling, a 29.5-foot operating radius and a long 18-foot electrical cord.
