Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by dbmagpie Oreck, Handheld Commercial Canister Vacuum
I Have an older model of this machine, when they still called it The House Keeper. The machine as really good suction , even for a machine that is designed for ABOVE FLOOR CLEANING.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Frank Not so sure ABOUT THIS VACUUM
Owned the vacuum one week and the pole handle cracked where it inserts into the hose. It was good on hardwood floors but laborious on carpet. The suction attachment for bare floors is very small and makes you work longer. Suction was adequate but nothing to brag about. The handle strap used to shoulder carry the unit from room to room kept falling off. I didn't dare carry it that way lest it fall and damage the hardwood. It is designed to be a quick answer to hardwood floors which is what we wanted but I can't keep it because the plastic hose broke to quickly. Sorry Oreck.

I wanted this the Oreck XL because of its rating and friends recomendation. I ordered it and it came with one of the links for the shoulder strap missing. I had no problem returning it to the Home Depot store, but it is an online product, so I had to reorder it on line. I reordered, this one also came with the link for one of the shoulder strap missing. I went to Ace Hardware and bought a key chain link so the shoulder strap could be connected to the back side of to my Oreck XL. Home Depot is my number one place to go for what I need, but I am thinking I am not the only one to return this item. It is $20.00 less than what I found on line and if you have a hardware store near you for a couple of dollars you can make it work.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Christopher I actually enjoy vacuuming with this thing!
I'm not a Mr. Clean. This vacuum makes me feel like I'm not wasting time doing a so-so job. The attachements and their availability on the caddy allow me to keep moving on the job and remove dirt and dust thoroughly and quickly. It is easy to carry on the shoulder strap as I move through the house, and I am able to get into tight corners and under furniture better than any vacuum I have used before.
It arrived less than 24 hours after I ordered it, which was almost scary. Easy to unpack and clear instructions. Would that all products and service were like this.

+++Vacuum is light and quiet, what I wanted.
The cord is really long
Lots of attachments
---The suction won't hold a bowling ball BUT good
The wand and hose are 12" to short
Small bag but has to be because of the size of the unit
***********Overall , I like it. Positives outweigh

The commercial canister vacuum is exacrly what I was looking for, to get in small places. The suction is very strong for a canister. It came with all the attachments I need. It is light enough to carry from room to room. The strap that came with it helps to leave your hands free to handle the attachments

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Dave Love the fact is can suck and blow, important because I use it for sucking air out of plastic bags to reduce space needed.
Love it because this vacuum can suck air out of things as well as blow air into things. Very versatile and nice strong motor.

I have two oreck handheld vacuums but I needed one for a second home. They are the older versions and I loved them. No problems so when I had to order this commercial model I was surprised at how much better the suction power is. Long cord is good. Only thing they could improve is length of tools. A little shorter than older version.
