    Easy to handle and well made

    If you are considering this model vs. the ultra orbiter, keep in mind that the commercial 550MC unit also has a 1/2 horsepower motor despite the Amazon description which indicates that it has a 3/4 hp motor. This can be confirmed by contacting Oreck. It appears that the cord on the commercial model is longer but that the orbiter ultra has a longer warranty. The 550MC commercial model comes with a black mounting pad which is essential for use of accessories. Accessories are available at additional cost.The machine is a pleasure to use. It is easy to control and has plenty of power. I cleaned my vinyl floor and also a good portion of my wood dining room floor. I was satisfied with the results.The ultra model appears to be so similar to the commercial model that I think either would be fine.

    Competes with professional floor cleaning!

    I year ago I hired a popular floor cleaning company to professionally clean the tile and grout on my kitchen floor. They did a fantastic job - but it cost $240! They used a round floor scrubber. I set out to find a round floor scrubber to purchase, and found this one. I purchased the all-purpose cleaning kit that comes with all the brushes, the terry bonnet, and thevtile/carpet/wood cleaners. I have carpet, floor tile, and hardwood in my house. I used the machine on the carpet and tile, but not the hardwood yet. This machine is amazing and delivers versatile floor cleaning. All you will ever need is this machine and a vacuum cleaner. I will be giving away my steam mop and steam carpet cleaner. They cannot compete with the Oreck at all!The Orbiter uses a dry shampoo technique for carpet cleaning. The scrubbing power is awesome.

    A Hidden Secret

    We have travertine floors all over our house. After 8 years of quite a few house parties and two dogs our floors completely lost their shine and were always dirty looking. I looked into hiring someone for a restoration process and was blown away by the cost. I decided to try out this Oreck Orbiter. I also purchased the "natural stone kit" which included the correct brush, a cleaner, and a white terry cloth pad. I scrubbed the floors with the brush and cleaner. Then went back over with a clean mop to get off the film and buffed dried with the terry cloth pad. It took off an awesome amount of grime and the grout started to look cleaner. The floors were still dull and it didn't take much time with two dogs for it to start going back to what it was before. I did some research, watched a couple of YouTube videos, and decided I was going to restore my own floors with diamond pads. I ordered the 800, 1500, and 3000 grit Gorilla Diamond Pads.

    Cheapest option. Works great and covers 100 sq.ft.+ per bottle. Highly recommended!

    Of course, if you have an Oreck hot-water carpet cleaner, you have no choice but to use this product. That said, it has always worked well for me. Recently our dog was in her last days and had issues with bowel control. Our living room rug was devastated with stains left by her liquids, and we had guests coming to stay with us. With no time to rent a steam cleaner or contract with a rug-cleaning company, I used our Oreck to do our entire 500 sq. ft. living room. The shampoo worked beautifully, as always, and left a nice fresh fragrance that, after a day or two, was not overwhelming.In the past we have used this product for spot treatment only, so I had no idea of the coverage one bottle gave. Being quite liberal with it's use, I used 4 1/2 bottles to do the entire 500 sq.ft. area.

    0 1/5 Ana Patricia Pasquel (California,USA) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) In your picture you see a bag of Oreck belts and the ones that the seller send me are bad generic ones. I put the belt (thing that I did numerous times before) and in 5 minutes I smell burn, open the vacuum and the belt was getting out of the drum and burned the side of my vacuum and made a little hole in the plastic, they are too big for the Oreck and if it does this the first time after two weeks or a month it is going to be completely out since they enlarge with time.

    Not Ready For Prime Time

    Let me start by saying that I am a huge Oreck fan. I think that they make quality products that do what they say they do. However, I can't say that this product measures up. They are on the right track but have several details to work out yet. I already own a Shark steam mop but find the handle to be a little short (I am tall) and it doesn't hold enough water to do my whole kitchen area with one fill. I was quite excited to hear that Oreck had a steam mop. I went to the Oreck store and got a demo. I commented then that the 'pad' was loose and coming off while he mopped, and that the head of the mop was being uncooperative during the carpet refresh demo. He made excuses for all so I bought the steam mop. The mop holds about a gallon of water, and has a very tall handle and a long cord. All good things. The quality and construction are excellent. However, the first thing you notice is that it weighs more than your vaccuum.

    Finally ... a Vacuum Cleaning System Worth the Money

    Can the canister - Not your best Hoover

    We read the overwhelming positive reviews and decided, with confidence, to buy our first nice vacuum. We were extremely pleased with the upright vacuum. It's lightweight just as others had promised. It sucked up everything and even felt cool to operate. Huge bag, nice filtration, excellent light and comfortable design. We were pleased!Then came time to vacuum the hardwood, linoleum and stairs. I took out the "handy" shoulder-strapped canister, placed the floor tip on and went to work. OUCH!!! This thing is so loud and bulky. The motor whines with a loud high pitch when tools are on and it only does an average job of sucking up our normal dust and dirt. The on-board tools fall out every time you pick up the canister and there's no cord rewind at all. Just the cord. (No hooks & no rewind option) The Hepa bag is tiny and fills immediately. The replacement bags aren't cheap either.
