I ditched my Orecks in the 1990's because of David Oreck's tv commercials.
Orecks are not in the vacuum cleaner category.
They stand alone and proud in the "Lint Movers" category.
At least unlike the previous POS Shark, they don't rip out the staple fibers.
That's an improvement
What vacuum is that?
Lint mover eh?
Bunch of closed minded know it alls
A vacuum without an edger is like a three legged horse. I've owned two orecks for janitorial jobs and several sanitairs of the same style. They move a ton of air, dust and fine particles. For that they are epic. But I would have rocks and large debris all over. And dirty edges. I'll take a Windsor or pro team over an oreck every day.
Shark Lift Away of course
What are you vacuuming, your front lawn?
Rock and large debris? Huh?
Shoot a video of your self vacuuming uph with that two ft pro team hose.
Someone doesn't own a long haired German Shepherd.
I vacuum public buildings. From health clinics to power company offices to tire shop mats to libraries... Any pebble you find in a parking lot gets tracked in and they just get shot around in an oreck.
Not having an edging tool is like a barber without a neck buzzer. I don't care how sharp their scissors are if your neck looks like a homeless guys.
Real world cleaner ^
How about the main entrance of those 2bedroom duplexes. It's a freaking sand box right at the entrance, because none of them take their shoes off. If you don't have the aggressive weight combined with the beater bar, you're just getting the junk on top of the carpet.
You should send it to Professional Testing Labs to examine the dust/dirt/lint particles in your oreck bag.. See how much of it is carpet fibers..
My dinosaur Windsor XP12 that lays flat to get under beds, with a on-board hose tool does a great job.. Same vacuum hospitals and hotels use..
Three out of four hospital doctors preferr an edging tool.
Mabye when Mikey mows his lawn he doesn't weed eat ever. But never missed a single blade in the center.
and even if you did leave some sand behind, who cares. Sand doesn't wick.
But sand traps soil that does wick,
And you all look like Linus Van Pelt dragging around your uprights while edging....
and a damn grocery bagger using one to vac upholstery.
In other exciting new for us simple minded janitors, we're up to six Kirby's now in Scruz.
The last two picked up for $50@...
