Oh, the Miele Cat and Dog for you then - Which magazine love it. It has a special filter and turbo-brush-heads. Hang on, will find you a link. (I am a bit evangelistic about Mieles. Others prefer Sebo and Henry!)

Are you sure it's dead? My mum just got hers repaired by a Dyson agent and it didn't cost much. They came to the house to fix it too. I seem to remember her saying there is a maximum price they can charge for fixing them and don't think it was very much compaired to the price of a new one.

Have a read of this thread too ; the Miele is here .

I wouldn't fixx my dyson if it broke I would be releaved to be able to justify the expense of a new vacumn. They are rubbish IMO

I rejoiced when Dyson died and I went out to buy a standard Miele which you pull along the floor with bags etc. etc. It's brilliant. I love it. I use it because I love it soooo much!!

And you can carry a Miele up and down the stairs without doing your back in
