- The Oreck Commercial U2000R-1 Upright Vacuum has an extraordinary lightweight of just 8-pounds so it’s perfect for the young and the elderly who want to do cleaning chores without lugging around heavy cleaning equipment. The rear carry handle makes it even easier to carry the vacuum around.
- It’s highly compact size allows you to vacuum under hard-to-reach areas such as furniture and beds without using any attachments unlike with regular vacuum cleaners which are too large to fit under.
- Thanks to its multi-surface capability, you can vacuum on a wide range of surfaces including carpet, tiles, wood and laminate flooring. Soft wheels ensure that your wooden flooring doesn’t become marked or damaged.
- Fingertip control allows you to turn the vacuum on and off easily and conveniently. With no speed settings to fiddle about with, operation couldn’t be simpler. The ergonomically designed Helping Hand Handle is comfortable to hold for longer periods so it’s ideal for people with Arthritis.
- The Endurolife belt has been built to last with strong materials so you can vacuum regularly without worrying about belt failure. The Oreck lives up to its X-tended Life label.
- Double helix roller-brushes run up to 6,500 RPM to provide quick and powerful cleaning performance on almost any surface.
- The bag has been designed to fill-up from the top so that the vacuum still retains good suction power even when the bag is half full.
- Using a unique cord clamp, the 40 ft power cord attaches to a pigtail cord so in the event of cord damage the cord can be replaced without the need for costly servicing.
- There is no headlight on the vacuum. Not a big deal, but it would be a useful feature to have when cleaning in darker areas with low light.
