    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. The stains and darkened traffic areas on my white berber carpet came right up!

    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.

    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.

    I LOATHE THIS THING!!

    Hands down, this is the worst and most expensive mop I have ever owned.I was so excited to receive it in the mail. It was easy to put together, the instructions concerning it's use were simple and easy to follow, and it even came with it's own special cleaner. It's sleek and light and the cord is extra long.Then, I plugged it in...the noise it made was almost louder than my neighbor's Harley. The scrubbing wheels are vacuum-powered as opposed to motorized which would make them stronger and more effective but I was too enamoured to care. But then the wheels got stuck multiple times and I had to either turn the machine on and then off for them to restart, or I had to reach down and use my hands to get them moving again. Touching the wet and dirty wheels was gross and my infatuation with my new mop began to wane.You need to squeeze a lever on the handle to get the cleaning water to squirt out onto the floor. Then you start mopping. The wheels do not... 1/5 QueenKatieMae (Portland, OR) - See all my reviews, March 23, 2015

    Just OK: Cleans well, but higher maintenance than it originally appeared...

    I wanted to love this. I really did. To give you an idea, I have never used a hard floor cleaner - always just broom and mom (or Swiffer). Our new home has tons of laminate, so I thought it was time to upgrade.Pros:- Cleans evenly and thoroughly - my floors looked cleaner than they have in awhile- Nice cord length - I didn't have to adjust to new outlets much in our multi-level townhouse- Great drying acting - The suction worked really well when using in the "dry" function. No worrying about dirty feet getting to the floor before it can dry!Cons:- Cumbersome - it doesn't turn well and is kind of awkward to push around. My arm was sore the morning after using it on three rooms.- Glitchy - Long before the waste water compartment was full, it shut off in SpinBrush mode. It happened three or four times the first time I used it. It seemed like maybe the auto shutoff function was triggered when it was reclined? Like, the water... 3/5 KWJ (Los Angeles) - See all my reviews, March 18, 2015

    Back to rag & bucket

    I have both linoleum (in the kitchen and bathrooms) and v-groove hardwood flooring (in the living room and bedrooms), but the manuals for this Oreck hard floor washer as silent on its use with various types of flooring. So I phoned Oreck to ask about using this unit on the various flooring types – and the customer service representative said I should “ask the flooring installer” if it would be “recommended.”Next call: the local flooring guy. He said to be cautious, and that it would probably be OK on the v-groove hardwood, but to carefully dry any leftover water drops with a cloth afterwards – with the caveat that some folks say even damp-mopping wooden flooring carries the risk of buckling. (The floor guy’s wife actually uses Windex to clean their hardwood floors.)On our stained and textured old linoleum, this unit worked pretty well. It didn't dispense the water solution until I gave the trigger a mighty squeeze, but... 3/5 Ellen Etc. "Garret Books" (Northern California, USA) - See all my reviews, March 23, 2015

    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. Although this translates to about 100 sq.ft./bottle, it would be much higher for general light shampooing without the multiple, heavy and dark stains that we had.

    Oreck Commercial 437054 Lambs Wool Bonnet Orbiter Pad Works best when used on a smooth stone, wood or vinyl floor surface.

    If you want the best possible shine on your tile or stone floors this Oreck Commercial 437054 Lambs Wool Bonnet Orbiter Padis the one to buy. Only problem is if your tile floors are not perfectly even the highs and lows in the floor can catch the pad eventually tearing it up. This is a strong well made pad but some stone is almost razor sharp. If high corner of a stone tile catches the pad just right it can rip the material. I have a limestone floor that was installed by people who did not take care to eliminate the peeks and valleys in the stone floor. In my limestone floors stone tiles can catch your feet if you drag them as I must due to my cerebral palsy. Just as some tiles catch my dragging feet they also can catch the spinning pad ripping it up over time.
