    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.

    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.

    Cleans floors better than anything else I've ever used

    This took us a while to get assembled, and I did not find it especially user-friendly at first to use. It was hard to see the writing on the buttons, and the machine makes a lot of noise so it was a little overwhelming initially to operate. I also was not pleased to read that the cleanser it comes with is toxic since our dog licks the floors by where we eat and prepare food all the time, and we certainly wouldn't want to poison him. We ended up using this without any cleanser and just a little vinegar (though the directions explicitly warn you should use only Oreck cleanser). Before we even started cleaning the floors, I was thinking this unit might just be more trouble than it's worth. You need to vacuum or sweep before using it, and, at our house, there's also a fair amount to move or pick up in most of the rooms.All of that became immaterial, however, after we started cleaning the floors and saw a) How wonderfully easy this was to use compared to any kind of mop I've... 5/5 Joanna (Pacific Northwest) - See all my reviews This review is from: Oreck Surface Scrub Hard Floor Cleaner (Misc.)

    Even works on wood floors!

    I have a house which is something of a challenge to clean: kids, pets, and multiple types of surfaces. The largest part of our flooring is teak parquet. It does not get cleaned as often as it should because I worry about having it wet for too long, and having the parquet loosen, wood warp or the surface otherwise ruined. I was able to use the Oreck Hard floor cleaner on my wood floors because it is so efficient at picking up water that the floor wasn't wet for very long. i used it first on the tile in our bathrooms, and when I saw how quickly and completely it picked up the water, I tentatively tried it on the wood. It took me less than an hour to do the house, when it would otherwise have taken the better part of the afternoon, and been a much messier job.The cleaner operates similarly to carpet cleaners which I have used, depositing water on the floor, and then vacuuming it up. It is, however, very much more efficient than either of the carpet cleaners I have... 5/5 E.Swope "Runs with pruning shears" (Windward Oahu, HI USA) - See all my reviews, March 12, 2015

    Scrubber or good-old fashioned mop--not sure which is better

    When using this floor scrubber, be aware of what kind of floor you can use it on. I find this Oreck Surface Scrub Hard Floor Cleaner works best on a hard floor like marble or stone tiles or on fairly level ceramic tile floor where the grout is about the same level as the tile. Unfortunately my entry hall is the only place that fits the bill, so this is a bit of a waste on me. This did an impressive job on my entry hall floor, but I have to say that you need to read the instructions thoroughly and, as is says, use HOT water. This is essential. Cold water leaves floors only partially clean and streaked. Hot water enables the floor scrubber to clean the floors well and suction the water well. Lower grout lines cause the water to pool and interfere with the intake of the dirty water back into the machine.When you are ready to really suck the water back into the machine, it is better if you flip the switch over the right wheel that disengages the scrub brushes and enable the... 4/5 E.

    Warranty Information not Included in Description and more ...

    So I was very excited to use the Oreck Steam It. I used it 4 times and something came loose in the connection between the water tank and the steam generator. Maybe it is just a screw so I called the 1-800 service number for Oreck. They told me to bring it to the nearby service center. So I did. Here's some interesting news. Even though the machine comes with a one year manufacturer's warranty, it is not warrantied through the manufacturer. What the what? If it is bought through Amazon, you have to go through Amazon. They were nice enough to take the machine in and see if it is something simple but if it requires a part or replacement, I will have to box it up and send it back to Amazon who will then presumably send it back to the service center. None of this information is included on the Amazon site. Another thing they told me, NEVER EVER use tap water. Unless your water is pristine with no minerals, only use distilled water.

    Exceeds all expectations

    My primary reason for getting a steam cleaner was dirty grout joints in white tile floors. The grout was close to the color of the tile when we built the house, but unbeknowst to us, the joints were never sealed after installation. This was 7 years ago and inspite of my attempts to clean them, they became dark grey in traffic areas. I first bought a Shark after it was recommended to me by a friend. One use and it went back to the store. At that point I started researching the different brands of steam cleaners and settled on an Oreck Steam It. It arrived yesterday and today I decided to give it a try without too much in the way of expectations. Was I ever pleasantly surprised. After spending about 45 minutes using the grout brush in my guest bathroom, I have white grout joints and the floor looks like brand new. Our house is entirely hardwood and tile and I cant wait to do my other bathrooms and the hardwood floors. I dont usually write reviews but it was because of the... 5/5 P.

    I Got a Defective One and I'm Still Giving Five Stars!!!

    I purchased the Oreck because it had less bad reviews than any of the other models listed. Unfortunately, I got one of the lemons that are in the 1 star reviews. I had it for just over a month and abolutely fell in love with it. Then it quit producing steam--what a bummer! I contacted Amazon, and they were willing to take it back despite it being over their 30 day return policy. I opted to contact Oreck as I figured going through Amazon would be the round-about way. Oreck was nothing but pleasant and accomodating. They promptly sent out a UPS shipping label. I sent the defective model out and didn't expect to see a replacement for at least a month. It was literally less than 2 weeks when I received a totally new one. What a pleasant surprise! I assumed they would just repair my old one!
