  • Should I / You Buy An Oreck Vacuum

    Nov 19, 2013 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Light weight, long cord, but light on solid engineering.
    Cons: Comes apart easily, poorly designed open ended beater bar winds hair into its bearings.

    Summary: I set out to replace a basic Eureka upright that lasted me almost 20 years with a few minor repairs I did myself. I looked hard at Dyson and Oreck.  They seem to be the big advertised brands these days.  I went with Oreck ... read more

  • Nothing gets by an Oreck except----

    Pros: Lightweight--You can toss it back in the closet very easily.
    Cons: It does not vacuum up, anything!

    Summary: EVERYTHING!  That is what we say as we "vacuum" with this near-worthless piece of garbage.  I have owned this machine for about six years.  I, thankfully, live in a house with mostly wood and tile floors.  On occasion, I vacuum the ... read more

    Pros: Very powerful machine for only 8 pounds!
    Cons: Lack of attachments.  But still the smallest best thing you can buy.

    Summary: Why I bought it...I needed something small and affordable for my apartment. I wanted a quality vacuum for a lower price. Where I bought it... I bought online at eBay from a company that sold refurbished Orecks with a 1 year ... read more

    Pros: very light weight.
    Cons: loss of suction after one bag change, and no onboard acessories. Expensive vacuum and accessories.

    Summary: I want everyone to read this review because, I am not a recent buyer of this vacuum, I am writing this review after purchasing this vacuum about 2 and half years ago (I bought this vacuum in October 2005). Thus today my oreck works minimal to what it is ... read more

    Pros: Great suction power, super light weight, compact
    Cons: Expensive, uses bags

    Summary: Like the previous reviewer, I bought my Oreck at a store location in Greenville, SC. I also went to the store on two separate ocassions. The first time I was sticker shocked that a vacuum could cost so much money and told the salesman I didn't know if ... read more

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Nice long cord, plenty of power.
    Cons: no attachments on vacuum.

    Summary: Why I bought the Oreck: I was tired of cheap vacuums breaking under heavy usage. Yes, we have pets, and yes, we have four children, but that doesn't mean that a vacuum has the right to wimp out on us, does it? Where I bought the Oreck: ... read more

    Pros: Very lightweight 8 pounds
    Cons: Costly if I bought it new.

    Summary: This vacuum rocks. It is easy to handle and move around. It puts less stress on my back and it really picks up tons of cat hair. I have 3 cats that constantly shed and it is so easy to pull this baby out and clean the condo in a short amount of time. ... read more

    Pros: Weight, power of motor, use on bare, carpeted or tiled floor, rough or flat.
    Cons: Nearness of repair places.

    Summary: I have enjoyed my Oreck XL2 for three years. With three cats, 2 long-haired, and one black long-haired dog, it has been a joy to operate. The light weight has been a treat. Also, it's ability to go under my bed to vacuum up cat hair has been a real ... read more

    Pros: light weight, long cord (30 ft), quick release cord holder, functional design.
    Cons: pricey but you can purchase one of the factory reconditioned models for 50% off

    Summary: The Oreck looks something like an old style upright that my grandmother had. However, it weighs 8 lbs instead of over 16lbs for the old vacuum. In addition to being lightweight, the Oreck is more powerful, quieter, dust free, and does a better ... read more

    Pros: Great job cleaning, very light
    Cons: No attachments, some cheap materials

    Summary: I must say I'm quite impressed with this vaccum. First off, it's not too noisy. I have heard more quiet ones, but they aren't nearly as powerful as this beast! I will say, I have a cheap 6lbs machine I use to clean upstairs. However, this 8lbs Oreck ... read more

    Pros: LIGHT!!! Powerful, easy to use.
    Cons: None

    Summary: I purchased the Oreck XL vacuum because my wife and I grew tired of lugging our 30 pound Kirby up and down the stairs. This little 8 pound vacuum packs a punch! When I received the vacuum, the only thing to do was attach the handle. Just the turn of ... read more

    Pros: Good suction, light, reliable, 35 foot cord, easy to use. This is a commercial vacuum
    Cons: This model, only a 1 year warranty.

    Summary: This XL2000 model is a good workhorse. Get it now before it's replaced by newer junk. It used to be a great vacuum from a great company. Now that old man Oreck is no longer running the company they are fast heading the way of junk. More and more of their ... read more

    Pros: great performance, light and its made in USA! That matters.  
    Cons: Bags. Old vacuum was bagless, need to get used to checking/changing bag

    Summary: Our Westinghouse vacuum worked fine, but weighed a ton and was hard to maneuver. We have a new dog, a border collie mix that sheds more than any dog I have ever seen. We need to vacuum a lot, so the weight/bulkiness of existing vacuum was a drawback. We ... read more
