Oreck Axis Lightweight Vacuum w/Swivel Steering & HEPA Inner Bag
Bought this vacuum 10 months ago on a TSV. Was working fine until the PLASTIC bracket broke which holds the roller brush! And just after 10 months!! My husband took off the bottom of the undercarriage and the whole inside is plastic except for the wooden roller brush. Warranty does not cover any parts just gives you the free tune ups. Will not buy another Oreck again----back to Hoover!!!!
This is like a self propelled vacuum. If you have it on the II speed, you don't have to push it, it just goes, so you better be holding on.
It is so easy to use, and light enough to carry from one floor to another.
I've had mine over a year and never had a problem.
I have several vacuums, but this is by far my favorite.
Someone said it scratched their hardwood floors. I was told NOT to use any vacuum with a roller on hardwood floors, or most bare floors.
I only use mine on carpeting.
Save the packaging if you order it!
Please don't waste your money. The product may work on t.v.in a controlled environment, but in real life situations and speaking only for myself, the product did not perform as described.
Love to Vacuum
I absolutely love this vacuum, so glad I decided to buy this. So easy to push and maneuver around furniture and extremely lightweight. This is my 2nd Oreck and by far the best!!
It works better than old oreck!
I am very happy so far with the Oreck Axis. It picks up dirt and debris on the tile and carpet. It works better than our 7 year old Oreck XL 2 which finally died. It has a nice automatic pull to it when you vacuum and the tilting feature works just fine when vacuuming around and under things. The only thing I noticed is that it doesn't vacuum well underneath the lip produced from the kitchen cabinets so I have to sweep under there. The light is nice and works just fine and the handle is sturdy if you need to lift the vacuum. I did a lot of research and read a lot of reviews and this is a great value if you prefer Oreck and don't want to spend the $399 or $599 for the other Oreck models.
Works Wonderful for Me
Since I have cp housework is really hard to do. Not much carpet here, but works wonderful on the floors. Using a few times a week and it works for me. It is easy to us with the control on the top. Very glad I purchased this item.
DO NOT, I REPEAT... DO NOT BUY THIS VACUUM!!
If there was a 0 star ... that's the rating I would give this product. I used this vacuum about 5 times and now already the belt broke. Very hard to push if you have any pile what so ever! It was never mentioned in the presentation that there is no height adjustment. The only good thing I can say about this Oreck is that it's light weight. This is the second Oreck I have bought and it is also the last I will buy.
Used twice and already doesn't work! Do NOT purchase!
I am so upset today. My Oreck came in Aug. 1st. Today on Sept. 2nd, one day too late to return it,and the belt broke. I have used this vacuum five times in a house with two adults and no animals. I would Not recommend this vacuum to anyone!!!
LOVE, LOVE, LOVE
I recently purchased this vacuum cleaner. I love, love, love it. It is very light weight and easy to use. I can go straight from ceramic tile to carpet with no adjustments. I have a very expensive vac that uses water, but I think this Oreck does a much better job............and did I mention, I have two small pets? This vac does a great job picking up pet hair as well. Thank you QVC and Oreck for this great product.
Should have researched first
The vacuum is great for a house without a lot of furniture or all furniture that is well off the ground. It does not get in tight spots and there are not any attachments that allow for that. I have to get my had vac for that or move all the plant stands and such. It does have a lot of power, but it did not fit under my furniture as shown on TV. It is very loud and the handle keeps catching on my t-shirt. If I had kept the box I would have returned it. I still might. I have liked everything I have received from QVC for the last 15 years, but this is the first review I have written. I have used it once in the house and have to clean the rollers already. It's a good vacuum with a lot of power, but not made for a home that has a lot of decorations, little table, or plant stands on the floor. Almost ate my floor rug.
Not for Me
i wrote a review about a week ago and I think it was selectively chosen not to be printed. The suction was good (but pick up throw rugs) the little edge brushes work well if you can get close enough to your baseboards, it did my tile pretty well in the kitchen, but the demonsration showed that it would fit along the edges under kitchen cabinets. Nope, had to sweep first. Then it said that it would do under the bed. Nope, the bed would have to have been 2 feet off the floor. I tried to put it under and that just made the head of the vac. raise up and not work. My carpet is probably 20 yrs. old and after reading the reviews I was concerned it would pull the carpet off the backing, but it actually did a pretty good job on that. Won't fit between my tub and toilet, or sink so without attachments it's just not worth the cost. Gotta send it back!
