As good as the Oreck shoulder-carry, without the backache
on August 23, 2015
I have a small (1200 sf) house, mostly hardwoods with throw rugs, and 6 cats. I bought a hand-held Oreck with a shoulder strap, no wheels, that I like for spot cleaning, but when I clean the whole house, I end up with a backache from carrying it around on my shoulder. This one solves the problem. It works as well as the Oreck on cat litter, kibble, and fur, but has wheels! I am keeping the Oreck for quick jobs, but this will be my main vacuum from now on. Well worth the money.
Pros: (1) Bags. Bagless vacuums are nasty. (2) Nice long cord and hose. (3) Wheels! But light enough to carry too, love this feature. (4) Great suction. Adjusts on the hose so you can turn it down to dust shelves etc. (5) Swiveling hose. (6) Really great price.
Cons: (1) Noisy. Doesn't break my eardrums but I wouldn't run it at night. (2) Gets hot. As others have said here, it does get warm after several minutes. But I did not smell an "electrical" smell, and it cooled down after a few seconds off. (3) Wrap cord. A minor inconvenience for me.
