Oreck Magnesium Upright Vacuum w/ 7 HEPA Inner Bags &3 Tuneups
Finally! An Effective Light-Weight Vacuum Cleaner
This vacuum cleaner is almost perfect. I have back problems and I shopped for several month before I bought this one. I was looking for something powerful, lightweight, with a long cord and hepa filter. It really gets into the corners and is easy to maneuver. I like the large disposable filter which doesn't have to be emptied that frequently. I would never get a vacuum that did not have a hepa filter. The only thing I wish it had is a dusting tool and hose to get the baseboards and window sills. Then it would be perfect!
If you have trouble with push/pull-THIS IS GREAT!
I am the Goldilocks of vacuums. I have wasted so much money on ones that I cannot use. Have physical issues that make pushing, pulling and carrying very difficult. We have had Dyson Animal (too hard to push/pull). Lindhaus (too heavy), Miele cannister (tripped over cord and hard to drag around small space). The last was a self-propelled Riccar that I thought if I turned my back on it it might chase after me. Seriously, it was just too hard to control in the pulling back motion and it sucked up my throw rugs even on low. THE ORECK IS PERFECT!
It goes from rug, to bare floor to throw rug with ease. My arms and back have no problems and it is light and a breeze to handle.
ORECK IS A WINNER. PLEASE DO NOT STOP MAKING SUPERIOR PRODUCTS AS I LOVE MY AIR CLEANER, TOO ! The part of review that says "Who would this be a perfect gift for"-If the option was "everyone", I would have chosen that!
Thank you QVC and the QVC viewers who answered my questions and recommended this to me.
When my 20 year old Oreck needed a new plug last week, I decided to retire it after all those years of great service, and ordered this new one. It is just incredible - so lightweight and easy to move about - and has super power. I am so pleased and would recommend this to anyone!
I had a heavy sweeper that was hard to handle. This Oreck is so light I can vacuum more often now and it does a wonderful job with pet hair . I even used it on my stairs it's so light
problem with light
We owned this upright for only 6 months when the light went out on it. We found out even though the machine claimed to have a warranty , that it did not cover the light and it cost us over $30 to fix this problem. Otherwise the vacuum works well, but I am disappointed that it cost me so much to repair in the short time we owned it.
Best Oreck Purchase Ever
I love this Oreck Magnesium vacuum cleaner. It is so light weight and easy to use. I thought my last Oreck was great , but this one beats it hands down. I am disabled and unable to use a vacuum weighing over 15 pounds. A full Oreck bag is a little heavy for me.
I didn't realize Oreck was in bankruptcy at this time. . I hope you have not quit carrying this wonderful brand and the parts we need for them.
Very light; Great Suction
I purchased this Oreck when we moved into out new home in Sept. I was looking to replace an older Oreck that was a little heavy to carry around. Although this house is larger, the vacuum weight is almost nonexistent. The suction is great and the 2 speeds help when vacuuming hardwoods and heavy pile carpets. We have 3 dogs and a large home and it just keeps on going and going like the day we got it. Highly recommend.
Lightest Vacum I ever had
Great Vacum !!! Lightest vacum we ever owned and goes by itself Love !!! Goes from carpet to hard floor without adjusting anything !!!
This vacuum has been a Godsend for me!!! I have had to struggle with other vacuums to do my rugs (one of which is an older Oreck upright). The LIGHT WEIGHT is great!!! Just received it and am absolutely thrilled with it. EVERYONE - young and elderly - should own one of these!! THANK YOU - THANK YOU, Oreck!!!
LOVE - LOVE - LOVE THIS VACUUM AND I AM FUSSY
First let me say this is a super vacuum. I have both a Dyson and Kirby - the Dyson being bagless just allows the dust to end up everywhere. The Kirby is just too heavy, over priced and doesn't vacuum as well. I'm going to sell it. I actually carried this Oreck vacuum upstairs with a load of folded clothes in a laundry basket. It vacuums like a charm on my tile, hardwood and carpet. It gets under beds easily. I would like a version that has an attachment but I've figured out how to angle this to do the stairs too; so not a big issue. You cannot go wrong with this. It's worth every cent. Now I'm a vacuum crazed Mom since this makes vacuuming so quick and easy.
Absolutely love this vaccuum. Had another (very expensive) vaccuum, but was just sooo heavy. I have a minor shoulder injury on my dominant arm, and vaccuuming was getting to be difficult and painful. This really is so very light. I can vaccuum my house in half the time because I don't have to bend over and flip a switch when I go from carpet to hardwood to rugs and back.
I do occationally miss not having an attachment, but it gets so close to the baseboards, even in the corners, that it really is not a big deal.
Plan on getting the portable hand canister for vaccuuming chairs/sofa etc.
Highly recommend this item
belt keeps breaking
I purchased this product about 6 months ago and now am on the 3rd belt. It keeps breaking and I just ordered a Shark, I'm tired of dealing with it. Too bad because it was easy to use and lightweight.
