probably going to go with the GV powerhead proteam back pack package that comes with floor power head and stair power head but wanted to ask what you guys prefer for vacuuming stairs really well.

The Orek probably is the best because it's the lightest, but I'm sure the vacuum you currently use will do just fine
how do you guys vac the nose and riser? been happy with the upright proteam 1500xp so decided to try the GV power head backpack mega vac pro team.
Just dont want to ask tech to always vac stairs with an upright as its kind of a pain

putting together a set up for these dense seattle areas so need something that can handle townhomes that are 3 flights of stairs. This is going to be more of a portable/encap set up since our larger trucks cant access most of these jobs, low overhangs and no parking

For 3 flights of stairs... that handheld royal would be my go to.
looks nice, I have a eureka one like it but bagless.. its good but filter design is terrible and loses suction pretty quick

The Oreck brush roll will sit nicely right on the bullnose

1 in ten million risers need to be dry vacuumed



The Hoover Porta Power will get the edges with ease and style.

Shoot ill look into one of those. I hate carrying my simplicity. It is a pain using the attachment.

Tell em who told you First.

The oreck is the way to go on stairs.
The canisters are all a pain and don't come close to speed and quality of the oreck on steps. Our sanitaire gets used to clean vents and cabinets but that's about it.

How about an oreck auction. I need a new one.
