Summary: Very poor customer service and only 1 year warranty. The part that connect the bag to the vacuum broke, ofcourse after the warranty expired. They were no help what so ever and while I do use it at my business we only have three small rugs to vacuum each night, not a lot of wear, but it couldn't...
Summary: The fan is plastic and will not with stand entry of debris. The manufacturer does not provide replacement parts directly. The mondel number will not cross over when going to third parties to third parties.
Summary: I am exceptionally pleased with this vacuum! Excellent suction, no extras to break and get in the way or get lost. The long cord can be plugged in a central outlet of my home and reach every room of my 1950's ranch. This a basic, highly efficient vacuum that I plan on willing to my children!
Summary: I am truly disappointed in this product. I have used an Oreck vacuum for years and have been very satisfied. We build new homes and have rentals so we have given them a good work out. This one I can not imagine it is made by the same company.
Summary: The OR101 has the suction and durable brush bar to do very good cleaning of our office's commercial carpet but we would have preferred a filter bag model. We didn't pick up on the fact that this model has a cloth bag.
Summary: I bought this thinking it was made in USA. The belt broke, and when I turned the vacuum over to look into replacing the belt, I noticed a sticker on the bottom saying: "Designed in USA" "Made in P.R.O.C" Had I known that, I never would have bought it.
Summary: We have a commercial office building and have used a Dyson for 3 months. I must say the Dyson had a ton of cool features, and it looked better. However, it does loose suction and the filters became clogged rather quickly. when I bough the orek I was worried about the suction, but it works great.
