Best Oreck Vacuum Reviews:
Orek Xl Review
Vacuums are one of the most popular items among consumers. They are used to clean their homes, offices, cars, etc. Most of them come with various features such as suction cups or brushes which make cleaning easier and faster. There are many different types of vacuums available in the market today.
Some have a large capacity while others offer more convenience and ease of use.
The main feature of any vacuum is its ability to suck up dirt and dust from your home. However, there are other features that will affect how well it performs its job. These include the size of the filter basket, whether it has a motor, what type of blades are included in the unit, and so forth. The main thing is that all these things will determine how effective your vacuum will be at cleaning your home.
There are several factors that go into choosing the right vacuum for your needs. One of those factors is price. A good rule of thumb is to look at the price per hour (or whatever number you prefer) and then compare that figure against similar models in your area. Another factor to consider is the warranty period provided by the manufacturer.
If they provide a lifetime guarantee, then it’s probably worth paying extra just because you’re confident that it’ll last forever!
The first company that we’ll discuss is Oreck. They’ve been making quality vacuums for many years. In fact, they’re one of the few manufacturers left in America that still build their vacuums here at home! It was started by David Oreck who set out to create the best vacuum cleaner ever made.
And from what we can see, he succeeded.
Currently, Oreck offers five different types of vacuums all of which are designed to be lightweight and easy to use. One of their most popular models is the XL2100RHS.
The Oreck XL2100RHS is a bagged canister vacuum. This model is just under twenty pounds, making it fairly light when you consider its size. It’s got an eleven-foot power cord, but if that isn’t enough for you then you can always plug it into the Oreck XL2100RHS Portable Canister which provides an additional twelve feet of cord. It’s bagged, so you’ll never have to worry about replacing the filter.
You can go from hardwood flooring to carpeting in a snap thanks to the easy to change automatic suction control. It’s really easy to maneuver, even around the furniture thanks to its smaller size and eight foot hose. And because it’s corded, you won’t have to worry about a dead battery or recharging it.
The Oreck XL2100RHS comes with a one year limited warranty which will be doubled to two years simply by registering your vacuum within thirty days of purchase.
Consumers agree that this is a great vacuum, especially for the cost. Most say that it has great suction and does a good job picking up dirt, dust, pet hair, and other debris from floors and carpeting. Just be aware that it isn’t self-propelled, so you’ll have to do a little pushing to get it where you want it to go. This model is also on the heavy side compared to lightweight units, but most feel that the Oreck XL2100RHS is well worth the money for the quality and durability.
Next up is the Oreck Magnesium VR1002. This upright vacuum cleaner is just under twenty pounds, making it fairly lightweight even when the canister is full. It’s only fifteen inches wide, so it can fit under most furniture with ease. The twenty-four foot power cord gives you plenty of range while you’re cleaning.
Like the other Oreck units, this one is bagged for simple maintenance and features the same automatic suction control for easy movement from carpets to hard floors with a simple twist of a dial.
The main difference between this model and the one above is that this one is self-propelled. It also comes with a bunch of extra tools for added versatility. Consumers like the lightweight feel of this vacuum and the ease of pushing it from room to room. They also feel that it has great suction on both carpeting and hard floors.
Just keep in mind that this model does not include a hose, so you won’t be able to reach tight spots or hidden corners as easily.
The Oreck Magnesium VR1002 comes with a two year limited warranty that will be doubled to four years by simply registering your vacuum within thirty days of purchase.
Last, but certainly not least is the Oreck XL Professional Bagged Vacuum. Yes, this is yet another bagged canister vacuum from Oreck. We have one more after this one too.
Just what is it about these bagged canister vacuums that have made them so popular with consumers?
Let’s take a look and find out.
The Oreck XL Professional is a lightweight, bagged canister vacuum that comes in at just under twenty pounds. It’s also fifteen inches wide, so it can easily fit under most furniture. It has an easy to change automatic suction control that makes movement from carpeting to hard floors a snap. Thanks to the twenty-four foot power cord, you’ll rarely have to worry about unplugging and finding a new outlet.
The main difference between this model and the two above is the size of the dirt canister. This unit comes with a large twelve ounce canister that needs to be emptied more often, but holds more dirt, dust, pet hair, and other debris before it needs to be dumped. The other two Oreck models have seven ounce canisters. Many consumers feel that the larger dirt capacity is well worth the extra time spent emptying and cleaning the canister.
This Oreck comes with a four year limited warranty that will be extended to seven years by simply registering your vacuum within thirty days of purchase.
