      I have owned the Oreck XL for about four years now and I feel that there are more draw backs than good points with this vacuum. First, you can not by the vacuum bags in any store except ones that sell the Oreck machines. So you have to order them from the Oreck website and have

      them delivered by UPS.

      The bags aren’t cheap either. For the standard, run of the mill bags, you will pay twenty four dollars for eight bags.

      The vacuum does clean well. It sucks up a lot of dirt, so expect to buy the bags twice a month if you vacuum daily.

      Once you buy anything from the website, be prepared to be over whelmed with ads and offers from the oreck company. They have an opt out link but even after opting out three times, I still get flooded with emails from them.

      The vacuum costs around three hundred dollars for the cheapest vacuum, which is the one that I have. It ...

      • Oreck XL
      isn’t worth it for me.

      There are no attachments what so ever. So you can not vacuum your’ furniture and the vacuum will not clean in the cracks and crevices along where the carpet meets the wall.

      It does work well on hard surfaces as long as you don’t need to vacuum up anything that rolled

      under the cabinets and pet hair tends to clog the tube. So periodically you have to take the macine apart to clean out that tube.

      Replacement belts are expensive too. They cost between twelve and fifteen dollars.

      Fot what I have spend just for the cost of bags in the past four years, I could have gotten a better vacuum that doesn’t keep costing me money.
