does anyone sell sebo or recommend something? i cares about deep clean performance, maneuverability, cost of ownership.

what recommend for 2500ft home, 50/50 carpet + hardfloor, 3 floors, stairs (carpeted and wood), rug, high ceiling? kids are mess like pet. many long human hairs

I like spec on Vorwerk but cannot afford, no where to buy in USA, and no hose. i borrow big ball dyson before and fun to use or look at, versatile all-in-one, always fire sale now, but very high maintenance. Kirby i think too big/heavy for small home and no tool.

Should i look at canister style? Miele, sebo, or lux appear good also on youtube.

If you want deep cleaning then you want Miele, Riccar, Simplicity, Aerus. Sebos are well built but they are not deep cleaners. They don't have the agitation like Miele and others do.

A canister vacuum will bring you the best benefits of full house cleaning. A Miele SEB228 or SEB236 electric power nozzle will deep clean all of the carpeting your home. Meanwhile a dedicated bare floor brush can fully clean your bare floors. A good bare floor brush can mean less wet cleaning for your hard flooring too. Kitchens and bathrooms are a different story, but many homes today have hard flooring in living rooms and hallways. While those areas get more dry dirt than stains, is the reason a great bare floor brush can help prolong when you would next feel the need to wet clean those surfaces.

Stop by your local vacuum shop and take a look at the Miele Home Care canister line up!

Simplicity & riccar seem design like direct air oreck with body. Those really deep clean more than Felix?

Miele top my list on performance and first choice for canister type. More than I afford today. Difficult overcome for upright bias. I believe canister best for multi use and hybrid upright like Felix

I need demo and only one sew shop in the village. Not sure model carry.

One day I either make own power combo like Mike or attempt Central vacuum.

I start on commercial Felix rebuild last week. Complete rebuild et1 head extract 1 hand full more dirt after vacuum whole house compare borrow Dyson UP75. hard see white fine particle in bag maybe more than I estimate. I believe Dyson up75 powerhead aggressive and perform good except low cfm

Thanks for help. Will update Felix rebuild thread going forward

@Holeefuk The sebo Deep cleans just fine! You can find a Felix one for 499 new. Personally Miele u1 is probably the most value you'll get more vacuum.
Keep in mind the Simplicity Riccar is built to last half as long as their German counterparts.

I buyed commercial Felix within low budget. I changed swivel neck make better to use compared to rigid commercial neck. Very please with sebo parts quality after teardown of entire vacuum. Easy field strip and super reliability Miele have nothing against. Performance review have very few broken sebo video and I am struggle find any video repair Felix.

Still look for accessory tools at eBay save money.

Sebo Parquet tool work really well except cannot stand straight Felix.

Another option is either the Lindhaus Valzer or the Healthcare Pro. The Valzer is around the same price range as the Felix and like the Felix, the Valzer and the Healthcare Pro can also be used as a canister. The Valzer and Healthcare Pro can also be used as a blower, something that the Felix cannot do. I really like them all I personally prefer the Valzer or the Healthcare Pro over the Felix.

The Lindhaus Aria is also another option to get as a canister. They're one of the best canisters that I've ever used.

Wow $699 for healthcare pro sound like the industry. I need vacuum sufficient money from couch and wallet afford it. Already buyed Felix clone too late now impress with partial work machine

Commercial Felix under $300 brand new before tariff. Premium Felix $699 not worth for me.

Ease rebuild/field strip, find sebo parts upgrades everywhere, and reliable sell me the sebo. President Trump have one :bolt:

Can barely find even picture or video someone make cord/switch change on Felix. Maybe they never break?

I call sebo America LLC they say commercial dart use different housing and they never heard of broke Felix before :D.
