    “Oreck XL 10”

    Written on: 30/04/2013 by ReviewCentre1234 (1 review written)

    I had an Oreck for over 20 years and it was brilliant. Nothing ever went wrong with it during that time. I purchased an XL10 at £395.95 in 2011 and I can honestly say it has been nothing but trouble. It has been back to Oreck 3 times. Always with the same problem, the power cutting out. Don't waste your money on this machine… Read Full Review

    £369 for £50 worth of very basic, poorly assembled parts - the rest spent on marketing. A smooth talking yank and a bowling ball thar most vaccums are capable of lifting with a good seal. … Read Full Review

    “Overrated, overpriced,unreliable and poorly engineered.”

    Written on: 12/08/2012

    I originally bought the commercial red XL about 12 or so years ago and, besides being noisy, found light to use and reliable.It still works. Seven years ago we bought the XL7 having passed on the red XL to a relative. The XL7 is obviously aimed at the domestic market and promised quieter running, a light, a switch on the handle and more stylish appearance. All for a whopping £400 inc the obligatory hand held canister which we didn't need as we already had one.We found no noticeable reduction… Read Full Review

    Written on: 12/02/2011

    Have had my Oreck for nearly seven years with no problems - it stopped working a week ago, so I contacted Oreck because the product has a seven year guarantee, not really expecting a positive response becasue it is nearly out of guarantee but they could not have been more helpful, the cleaner was collected from my house and returned within four days - apart from black plastic casing virtually everything else has been replaced and it is working better than ever. Amazing service and I would… Read Full Review

    Written on: 22/01/2011

    I have been VERY disaapointed with my Oreck XL. It was expensive. It has next to no "pick up" power. It smells of burning rubber (presumably the belt wearing out). Pre-Sales service slick - After Sales service poor. Am now planning to give it away on Freecycle in the hope that someone can fix and use it… Read Full Review

    Written on: 14/05/2010 by randyjoneswhite (1 review written)

    The Oreck XL Platinum (upright vacuum) runs away from the vacuumer, have to hold it back, tiring. It eats the ends of rugs regardless of high or low power setting. Not having a tool attached is a problem. The sidekick canister is not convenient in many ways: hooks for winding the cord are on the bottom, difficult to re-attach cover on bag compartment, difficult to attach over-the-shoulder strap to the hooks on machine, strap tangles with cord, and just the inconvenience of having to store and… Read Full Review

    Written on: 15/02/2010

    After a year I sent the Oreck XL back to be checked as it did not pick up well and was smelling. It came back a little better. For the next 2 years I put up with it, replacing belts, brushes - just about everything you could replace. Bought the super-duper bags - it still smelled after vacuuming. The bags were not even an eighth full after a month of vacuuming and the carpets were looking worse and worse.
    The Oreck went back again and came back again, still no better and still smelling when… Read Full Review

    Written on: 30/11/2009 by nikavraam (1 review written)

    had an xl for approx ten years only had to change the belt once... i highly recommend this vacuum cleaner, think its fantastic. only downside is it doesnt have any of those extentable bits, but is very, very light and therefore is no problem up and down the stairs. also, parts are cheap, service is graet and its such a simple design that even a dumbo like me can replace certain bits and bobs when they fail or wear out. dont be put off by the last comment, our vacuum cleaner is used excessively… Read Full Review

    The Oreck XL is a great vacuum. Works well and light weight. I would buy one again. The only down side is that it stinks like dirt. We store it in a closet and it really smells it up. We change the bag regularly but it doesn't help… Read Full Review

    Written on: 10/06/2009 by AphroditeAconite (1 review written)

    The oreck vaccum cleaner is expensive but I can't fault it, or the after sales service. I have a cat and a dog, have had the cleaner 7 years and haven't had to change a belt yet. The brushes are just starting to wear, and it gets heavy use, two or three times a week, up and downstairs, carpets and hard floors. Buying the bags from the internet is no real hardship either. You can get the cleaner overhauled by Oreck and they virtually rebuild it, even providing a new motor as a matter of… Read Full Review

    Written on: 31/08/2008 by bazz2004 (2 reviews written)

    With regards to the Oreck XL, it's the only upright that the wife has found easy to use. For anyone with a bad back or weak wrists it will be a good choice. It does a thorough job and can even be used on stairs. Oreck uprights are impressive but they have to be bought in an expensive bundle with an awful cylinder model included. At least that's the situation in the UK… Read Full Review

    I recommend Oreck to friends when they are looking for a new vacuum cleaner. Light. Great for backache sufferers. Gets into the corners. All surfaces cleaned. I have had 2 dogs in this time, both with house-dust mite allergies. Problem solved!
    My Oreck is 18 years old. I treated myself to a new one last year and have not opened it yet!… Read Full Review

    Written on: 07/07/2008

    I'm truly shocked by the negative comments for this Oreck XL cleaner. Sick and tired of Dyson's picking up dog hair for 6 months and then leaving a thatch in a navy blue carpet. Compared to other cleaners it's very lightweight and so takes the backache out of cleaning. Its efficiency means cleaning takes a fraction of the time. I wouldn't hesitate to purchase again… Read Full Review

    I was surprised to see that some users had had problems since I have had my Oreck XL for 10 years now and haven't had to change the belt yet! I use it 2/3 times a week.
