    Finally ... a Vacuum Cleaning System Worth the Money

    First, a disclaimer of sorts .... I'm a long-term, died-in-the-wool Hoover evangelist. No, I don't work for Hoover, but I've always used them religiously for over 30 years. I've tried switching off to other top-of-the-line brands (Oreck, Eureka, Kenmore, etc.), but I always return to Hoover for their unsurpassed cleaning power and reliability.That does not, however, mean they were perfect.* The Hoover WindTunnel U6439 bagged upright that I've had for the last several years would suck up a Buick. Unfortunately, it also rivaled a Buick in the weight category. Although it's supposedly a "self-propelled" model, I felt like I had to go into training in order to vacuum my house. It became something I would put off because I wasn't sure I had the strength to wrestle this bulky beast all over my house.* The WindTunnel controls which allow you to change the brush height from carpet to floor were manual, hard-to-move levers on the brush housing which... 5/5 Jan Schroeder (Denver, CO) - See all my reviews This review is from: Hoover Platinum Lightweight Upright Vacuum with Canister, Bagged, UH30010COM (Kitchen) First, a disclaimer of sorts ....

    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.

    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.

    Oreck

    Best vacuum cleaner I have owned

    I was always a bit skeptical of Oreck with their bowling ball commercial. I was given a chance to try out the Oreck Magnesium and didn't know what to expect. I find myself pleasantly surprised.First, the Magnesium is very light. The cord almost feels heavier than the entire vacuum cleaner itself. Set up took less than a minute. The Magnesium comes almost assembled - you just have to attached the handle, which doesn't require tools and takes a couple seconds.The rest of the construction feels solid, apart from the plastic tube near the back. I wish that was made of the same material as the handle. The bag and zipper parts also feel well made. I never owned a bagged vacuum cleaner before, but Oreck's bagged system actually works well. The bag seals itself, so there's no mess (unlike with my bagless cleaner that ends up spreading dust around when I dump it out). I'm also a sucker for the electric blue accent color of the bag portion.As for... 5/5 Quoad Toad (Chicago) - See all my reviews, June 5, 2012

    Good performance, high price, annual maintenance cost.

    I had always shied away from Orecks in the past. I have friends who absolutely adore them, but as they explained their experience with Oreck I was always unsure it was a good idea for me to buy an Oreck for myself.Why?Well, there are two reasons really.1) Regular maintenance despite a higher cost up front. Orecks cost more than most other vacuums as a rule. But once you pay the premium price, you have to take it to an Oreck service center annually to replace motor parts, gaskets, and belts. This is not the case with any other vacuum brand that I am aware of. Of course, my friends had their Oreck vacuum for years and years, but over the lifetime of the vacuum they continued to shell out money on something they already purchased.2) Orecks are never rated very highly by Consumer Reports. I've never seen any Oreck model in the top ten vacuums in independent testing of 50 vacuums.Now, my Oreck fanboy friends never like it when I point... 3/5 Just Trying to Help (USA) - See all my reviews, June 8, 2012

    Important Aspects To Consider

    First, some quick background info.I did quite a bit of research prior to this purchase. I own a 20 year old home in need of new carpet so, we decided to go with a high quality carpet; Mohawk SmartStrand Silk. This carpet is an average length cut yet super dense pile and it is a darn good thing that I asked our salesperson what vacuum was recommended. He gave me a certain model of Oreck vacuum.Prior to this I was looking into a Rainbow vacuum because I always wanted one but, I am glad I decided against it because a Rainbow vacuum requires some minor cleaning after each use, and my wife and I did not want the extra work. Secondly, I was considering a Miele because of the superior engineering and the quiet/easy operation. But, I began to consider an Oreck after it was recommended by our local flooring company that has a long standing positive reputation in our community of about a quarter million population.The local Tarjay has the Oreck Magnesium for sale... 5/5 Paul Fucich (Palmdale, CA) - See all my reviews, March 11, 2013

    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. The pad is actually a piece of cotton duck fabric... 2/5 TechDiva (Brookfield WI) - See all my reviews Let me start by saying that I am a huge Oreck fan.

I bought some microfiber cloths at another retailer to have enough for my cleaning projects. They worked okay, but I'd rather have more pads. The pads also shrink significantly,...

    Not for the disabled

    0 3/5 Carla Chairez - See all my reviews Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Oreck Hoky Rotorbrush Floor & Carpet Sweeper With Genuine Boar Bristle Brush (Kitchen) I bought this carpet sweeper because I'm disabled, and I wanted something light and efficient to have for quick clean ups, instead of lugging out my vacuum which is very heavy. I bought this particular carpet sweeper because it is a Hokey and it had natural boar bristles.Well this is the thing, it's not as efficient as I had hoped it would be. I have tiled kitchens low pile carpet and area rugs and what I noticed is that for the most part on flat surfaces it picks up generally well,but you have to put a lot of back strength into it and push down on the unit as you are sweeping in order for it to pick up without missing anything,this really defeats the purpose because of my disability and it just really exhausts me to no end after I get done using it. But it is a whole lot more convenient than lugging out my heavy vacuum I guess you can say. Would return it but its just so much of a hassle and I really don't want to incur the cost. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , March 23, 2014
