Direct Suction

The direct suction and roller brush rotating at about 5,600 revolutions per minute draw dirt right into the bag. The brush grooms the nap as it cleans.


Fast and Simple

The Saniseal® system automatically seals shut, locking the dirt in the disposable filter bag. Changing bags is effortless.


Furniture-Friendly Design

A wide cleaning path, low-profile design, and 35-ft. power cord make it easy to cover a lot of ground, quickly get in and out of tight spots, and get up and down stairs..


HEPA Inner Bag

The Oreck Forever® Series Gold offers a HEPA inner bag. As air passes through the HEPA inner bag, it captures at least 99.97% of particles at .3 microns from that air, which includes: pollen, house dust, smoke, animal dander and mold spores


The Oreck Forever® Series Gold is engineered, designed, and assembled right here in the U.S.A. at our state-of-the-art manufacturing facility.

The Oreck Advantage: Direct Suction

Our direct suction design delivers dirt in a straight, efficient path right to the vacuum bag. It's a streamlined design that works beautifully with a smaller motor — and one reason why Oreck bagged uprights are so lightweight. Here's how: our upright vacuums incorporate a "dirty air system" in which dirt is pulled through a fan that breaks it into smaller particles that get sucked up into the vacuum. Oreck's smaller motor drives this fan, as well as the brushroll. Because these smaller motors sit closer to the floor they provide efficient suction and are able to spin the brushroll incredibly fast.

Very happy I have owned several other competing products over the last fifteen years, including the other popular premium brands. What I have found is that all premium vacuums do a decent job of cleaning the carpet. If you spend the money for a good vacuum, you will probably see a satisfactory result. The problem is that the very pricey ultra-premium vacuums are like pushing a tank uphill. In addition to the weight, other vacuums sound like a jet engine. I was lucky if I could find the time (and energy! Two little kids in the house) to clean every other week. The light and nimble Oreck cleans all of my carpets in under thirty minutes, so I can go over the entire house a few times a week. I can even clean the high-traffic areas daily when needed. Grabbing the Oreck to quickly clean up whatever disaster my kids have left takes just a couple of minutes, and I don't feel like I need to visit the chiropractor afterwards. The Oreck is quiet enough that my dog follows me around watching instead of huddling under the coffee table in terror. April 14, 2015
Works Great I own a cleaning service and recently purchased the Oreck Gold and have been very pleased with it's performance. It is versatile enough to work on several flooring types and light weight to make it easy to carry. I would recommend this product to anyone looking for a vacuum. I would also recommend Josh Tahtinen at the Bay Area location. He was very knowledgeable about the product and did not try to sell me the most expensive model. January 12, 2014
The worlds best vacuum ever. Please read I have had this vacuum for 5 years and still does a good job. I have 3 kids that are 1, 3 and 5. I get home from work and have to clean up cheerios,all over the place. I turn it on and IT SUCKS IT ALL UP IN ONE PASS EVEN ON CARPET AND FLOORS! I am really impressed with this vacuum. I used a Bissell lift off pet and in about 2 years it started smoking. I called Bissell and sent emails but they said i was screwed! So the point is i love oreck and they will be making money off me in later years. November 17, 2013
the very best after owning dozens of vacuums over the years, the "ORECK FOREVER GOLD' is without a doubt the best built and deep cleaning appliance ever invented. Can not give enough kudos on this unit, not to mention a LIFETIME WARRANTY. Oreck must be crazy to offer such a deal! I am a devoted customer now!!! November 2, 2013
Lightweight Ease I don't like to vacuum but ever since I got this vacuum I don't mind vacuuming. The vacuum is light weight and glides across the floor. There is good suction and picks up anything on the floor. Before I bought my handheld Oreck vacuum this vacuum was light weight enough to carry up and down the stairs. I don't have any problems with this vacuum ruining my carpet. My mom tried this vacuum and went and bought one for herself. May 12, 2013
Great Vacuum I needed a vacuum that would lift the carpet nap in high traffic areas in my house. I had tried other vacuums and none I tried would make the carpet look new again. I tried the Oreck and it make my carpet look like it was just installed. Great vacuum Oreck. January 24, 2013
RETURNING MY ONE WEEK OLD VACCUUM I NEVER write reviews, EVER! But after purchasing the Oreck Forever Gold one week ago today I thought I must in order to inform others of the shortcomings of this vaccuum. I echo the sentiments of the reviewer who states that this model ruined her carpet. I have wall -to-wall 100% wool carpet on my second floor and the motor and/or brushes of this vaccuum pulled the pile of the rug so much that it looks like a well-worn sweater! I had an Oreck XL for 13 years and had no problems whatsoever until the handle broke last week. I brought it in to my local Oreck dealer to get a trade-in model but was told they didn't have any XLs available in the showroom. I demo-ed several models on their plush showroom rug and decided on the Gold even though I was unsure of the weight and the self-propelled motor. Forget my initial concerns, I am so disappointed that the new vaccuum ruined my carpet that I will be returning this product today. December 7, 2012
Destroyed my new carpet I am a longtime Oreck customer. I had an XL for ten years, and have recommended Oreck vacuums to many friends. This vacuum < Oreck Gold, Forever Series>was a total disappointment! The suction damaged my favorite carpet. After using it twice we noticed that the tight, fine weave looked very furry and worn. I was afraid to use it again, so it returned it. The sales associate opened the vacuum, and cut open the bag to show me what was inside. Bad move! I found that after only two uses the bag was nearly completely full with my carpet fibers. If you value your carpet, do not use the vacuum on it. November 27, 2012
