    We just tossed our home vacuum, same problem. Sad they don't last longer! However considering they were designed for homeowner use, they do pretty good.

    If they made a truly commercial version I bet it would do well. Mine didn't last long either.

    I was thinking it looks well used since he’s always loving on his Oreck.

    Biggest problem I've had with orecks is the plastic housing cracks where the bearings fit causing it to make the most awful noise.

    Phil’s truck, his helper Jose.

    I thought him to clean the bush roll 5 month later brush roll was wobbling and broke!

    Turns out in his effort to get the hair he was digging plastic off the edges breaking the vacuum head!

    He broke two, now we don’t let him touch things. IDIOT.

    I’ve never seen a brush roll motor go bad!

    I’ve pulled the head apart cleaned out the hair that somehow works it’s way in there.

    I was getting over a year on the NV80 models.

    I replace them yearly because Homedepot had a sale.

    $126 Black Friday week.

    I’m shocked you upscale cleaners would stoop that low using a shark. Mind blowing.
    Had my Royal for 7 yrs? And still running strong. Only thing changed on that thing is belt and bags.
