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.

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..

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.

This vacuum has great suction and is light weight. The handle is exceptionally uncomfortable after a few minutes of use. (It takes an hour to vacuum our entire house including the stairs) The power switch is located on the back side and requires use of both hands to turn it on. The head is too tall and does not fit under the edge of our cupboards and too wide to fit in many place our old Oreck XL did. I wish the old Oreck XL did not die, but it was 13 years old and had a lot of miles on it. October 19, 2012
This Vaccum is everything they say it is and more I purchased this vaccum along with the hand held vaccum. I used the big vaccum to do my carpet that is walked on all the time and dogs are always on it and it made my carpet look alomost brand new and it is three years old !!! I just was so happy !!! This carpet has been through alot of traffic in the past three years and I just couldn't believe how good it looked after using the Oreck vaccum ! I also used the hand held vaccum on the stairs and it did the same thing !!! What a surprise that was. They both have unbelievable suction and the upright seems like it is self propeled as it moves on the carpet so very very easy and it is so light weight too. If you have never had this vaccum well then it's time you did !! You won't be sorry that you bought it. The waranty on this vaccum is also great......I LOVE IT .... I LOVE IT September 17, 2012
Great vaccum cleaner I recently purchased the Oreck Gold and couldn't be more pleased. I was particularly impressed with the lightness of this machine and that led me t find out more about it. It is self-propelled and requires no pushing. It does a great job of my hardwood floors and also my carpets. At this stage can't think that I would ever buy anything but an Oreck. July 24, 2012
Great vacuum for upper level of our home We received this vacuum today (along with the Oreck Edge) for the upper level of our home. It does an amazing job grooming carpets and sweeping tile. The Oreck Gold is quiet, and has two speeds. One pass through the bedrooms and hallways - and the bag was just about to the fill line with fluffy fuzz from the carpeting. That was impressive. It was also nice to use on the staircases to the main and lower levels. It is worth the price for the results you will experience. It put our central cleaning system to shame. May 9, 2012
Hardly works The machine works great for the first 5 minutes it runs. As I start to put any amount of dirt and dust in the machine it doesn't work well. The suggestion is to clean the outter bag with a vac. How can i do that? I am not impressed by this machine at all. April 28, 2012
Powerful, dependable, lightweight, efficient. This vacuum is amazing. The extra 5 feet of cord really do come in handy. The serpentine belt doesn't burn out like on the older models. New and improved, this vacuum is worth every penny. March 19, 2012
A life saver for me and the dog This is my second Oreck vacuum. My first I lost in a flood. I just got a puppy a few months ago with long hair, and he sheds really bad. This sweeper has been a blessing as it clears my carpets and floors of all his hair. My carpets matt stands up beautifully. Thank you Oreck for making a vacuum cleaner for pets. April 30, 2012
This product has power! My Oreck Gold has been a life saver! Having white carpet, stairs, and three grandchildren under the age of four, I've needed and found a powerful vacuum that's lightweight and dependable. I use it daily and complete the job within 10 minutes! April 25, 2012
Powerful vacuum Have used this now for three weeks and love it as it almost drives itself. The suction is strong and it works well on my carpet and bare floors. The only thing it does not work on is my shag rug in the foyer. It will barely move over the area rug so I have to use my Oreck canister with the rotating brush head attachment. Other than that I am completely satisfied with this vacuum. March 8, 2012
This product has great features. I looooove my new Magnesuim !! I was pleased when I tried it for the first time, it actually guides itself. I love to vacuum now.I highly recommend this vacuum. April 16, 2012
LOVE my Forever Gold Oreck I was surprised at the other poor reviews, because I love this vacuum, it is so light and easy to use and gets my floors amazingly clean. I admit it's my first Oreck, so I am not comparing it with previous models, but think and hope it will be my last vacuum. The handheld canister vac also has worked well for me; to be honest I haven't needed to use it that much because the vacuum is so easy to use. I did have to get used to the self-propelling feature, as it is fast, but it hasn't been a problem if I use the correct speed for the flooring type. I have tile, throw and area rugs, and semi-deep pile carpet and the high speed is great on the carpet and gets it really clean. However, I have to use the lower speed on my area rugs which is perfect. This vacuum gets all the pet hair up beautifully, even off all the tile. It lays completely flat to easily fit under my coffee tables and beds which I love - never been able to reach those spots with a vacuum before. It's also very good on stairs. I like the handle, it is comfortable to use, and the lower handle makes it really easy to lift. The cord wraps around the handles, I guess previous models had a different way of winding it. This is a basic no-frills way of doing it, but less to potentially break I guess, it doesnt bother me much. All around, a sturdy, light, strong vacuum that stands up to a lot of use on all the different flooring in my home. I like things very clean and am completely satisfied with it. January 17, 2012
Used to LOVE my Oreck upright. Bought this new one, and disappointed. I did contact Customer Service, because I am still paying for this vacuum. It no longer has any suction, which was 'misdiagnosed' by Customer Service as needing a new belt. To their credit, they sent me a package of three belts. I changed the belt, but to no avail. The brushes spin but, as there is no suction, they spew the dust out behind the vacuum. I require a heavy-duty upright to keep my shag rugs clean. This has not met those standards, and I am now with a broken (new) vacuum that I am still paying for. January 9, 2012
