This lovely machine showed up on my front door step the other day. Unfortunately, all that came with it was the hose. However, the body of the machine is in pretty good conditions with only a few scratches and it runs great. I don't know much about Mieles, so any thoughts or info would be appreciated.

I like the setup for the suction control

An empty attachment holder is a sad one :(

What a find! Just keep it - you can source tubes, floor heads and the smaller tools for the model on the 'net. It will take the generic style tubing (unless there is no square lock nib below the remote control handle) and also on this model, I suspect that you can buy an additional tool clip that sits at the handle if you want to store the tubes in the upright position. I may be wrong but I suspect that this model didn't come with the built in flush storage point on the side, made into the black bumper surround. I'll have to flush out my old Miele brochure that shows a similar model in corn yellow, if you require the exact model numbers of the floor heads etc.

Yes this model does have the mounting points for the wand. This model also has a port for the optional electric power nozzle. According to the owners manual, it came standard with the two position floor brush. There was an optional air driven turbo brush, as well as an optional electric power nozzle kit which came with an electric hose, wands and the power nozzle it self.
