Oreck® Magnesium® SP Power Team

Sku # LW100COM

Introducing one of the lightest, full-powered upright vacuum cleaner in America. With its extremely strong, durable magnesium frame, the Magnesium® SP packs all the power you expect from an Oreck vacuum cleaner — so much power it feels like it's self-propelled on most surfaces. The two speed Quickswitch® on the back of the vacuum enables you to move smoothly across all floor types using appropriate power levels: high for carpets and low for hardwoods, and tile. It's even gentle enough for fine Oriental and Persian rugs on low speed. Additionally, the large high-performance rear wheels with cylindrical wheel bearings give the Magnesium maneuverability, making it easy to push through high-pile carpet. Best of all, it lies virtually flat for easy cleaning under furniture.

Includes the Ultimate Handheld Vac, a powerful, portable and lightweight handheld vacuum perfect for above-the-floor cleaning, includes a 20 ft. power cord, five specialized cleaning tools, and an installed HEPA filter.

The lightest, full-powered upright in America

Magnesium Won VDTA Award

Engineered for the way you live

Direct Suction

The direct suction and rollerbrush rotating at 7,000 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

Magnesium SP lies virtually flat, has a wide cleaning path and a 30 ft. cord, making 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

Magnesium SP uses a HEPA inner bag. As air passes through the HEPA inner bag, it captures at least 99.97% of particles as small as .3 microns from that air, such as pollen, dust, smoke, animal dander and mold spores.

Ease of use seal

"Easy Snap Cord"

The new 'Easy Snap' cord clip is the smart way to keep the cord where you need it ... not where you don't.


The Oreck Magnesium SP has received the Gold Seal of Approval from the Carpet and Rug Institute, the leading U.S. carpet authority, which certifies that it meets the highest performance standards.

Centsational Girl In "A troublesome cat and a great vacuum," Kate outlines her 4 favorite things about Magnesium: it's so lightweight her kids can use it AND she can easily carry it upstairs; it's quicker than a broom on wood floors; and it lies flat to get under furniture or beds. Get the details from Centsational Girl.
Anna Mosley With Magnesium's low speed option, Anna can quit worrying about one of her pet peeves: accidentally catching a rug edge and sucking it up. "It even vacuums my shag rug with ease!" And although she's wanted a handheld vacuum for awhile, she's glad she held out for the Oreck Ultimate Handheld. See why this power team meets all her needs at
Exploits of a Milatary Mama Sally considers the Magnesium "hands-down, one of the best homeowner tools I've ever used" and "an investment that you'll keep for years and years to come." She calls the handheld "a DIY-er's dream machine… with an attachment for every job." See why she and her family use both virtually every day at Exploits of a Military Mama.

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.

the quality of material sux the electric motor mount after 6 months of use crubmbled and caused the fan to wear down and I now have a 400 dollar useless vacuum June 28, 2015
Disappointed in this purchase I just received my Magnesium vacuum today. I have to say I was disappointed. I like that it is lighter than my previous Oreck vacuum. But, I think the light on the new one is useless! Why even put a light on it?! Also, having the on/off button on the back of the handle is not desirable. And having to push it twice to turn it off just tells me that the button will definitely wear out quickly. What were you thinking, Oreck?? I'm glad I didn't pay full price for it, but I can see myself going back to the original one, even though it is a little bit heavier. March 17, 2015
Worked well, but only lasted 6 years. Vacuum has continued to fall apart. I would not buy another Oreck. Also the "free" products that came with it lasted a few months. Terrible craftsmanship. February 16, 2015
does not vacuum anything but dust everything gets caught in it. got some small piece of plastic caught up in the belt, now under service. makes noise on carpets. difficult to use the on and off button, does not clean well otherwise. January 24, 2015
Poorly engineered, poor quality parts and workmanship We purchased the Magnesium a year ago and had to return it to the store a week later because a part broke. We took it for a 12 mo maintenance in June 2014 and were told the bottom plate would soon have to be replaced (at our cost). The cord storage is very inconvenient and requires bending over--not good for a bad back. The cord also gets in the way when vacuuming. The swivel is a good idea; however it is not executed well in this vacuum. This is the 3rd Oreck that we've owned--each one lasted for more than 12 years. The Magnesium in no way compares to the Oreck XL. The Magnesium is lighter weight than the XL; however, not worth the $499 price tag. We will most probably have to replace the Magnesium in the next year or two. The Magnesium is a huge disappointment. Do not recommend it! August 9, 2014
Somewhat Disappointed We just purchased a new Magnesium SP. Putting it into use was extremely easy. My wife really enjoys the lightweight design, especially after using a Kirby for many years. It does seem to have adequate suction power; however, we are really concerned about the quality and durability. For a vacuum with a $500. MSRP the materials seem very cheap. The power switch appears to be about a 15 cent component. You use the switch obviously at every use. I do not expect it to last a year. My in laws purchased an Oreck a few years back and it is of superior quality. We are definitely disappointed in this product. We only hope that it lasts longer than expected. July 23, 2014
Loved Oreck...until I bought this vacuum I owned an Oreck XL for over eight years and it was, by far, the best vacuum I had ever purchased. When it came time to buy a new vacuum last year, I wanted another Oreck and bought the Magnesium SP. What a disappointment! The majority of my vacuuming is on hard-surface floors, and it does a poor job of cleaning them. It moves dirt and dust around more than it picks it up. When it does pick up, it clogs very easily -- I've spent countless hours clearing out clogs from the system -- never an issue with my old Oreck. Another problem is the power cord placement -- because of the design, I have to loop it around the top to keep from running over it. In short, I've been really disappointed with this vacuum. Not only would I not recommend it to others, I'm planning to look elsewhere for my next vacuum. June 17, 2014
Poor warranty. Pines over Xmas jammed the system. Had to pay I bought this as a tool to help clean the house. I purchased it just before Xmas 2013. I used it to clean the pines that fell of the Xmas tree. I admit it was a lot of debris but this was a new vacuum with less than a month in use. I was charged over $50 for a new part, that I abused according to , "the technician here in the Naples Florida store". I have had Oreck products for years. I contacted the headquarters who told me the technician in the field is basically the bottom line. This is my bottom line.. my bad..never again will I purchase an Oreck product. I served in the Military for over 30 years. I hope every Veteran who reads this message understands this happened to me a former Command Sergeant Major. I can't guarantee a better or worse experience but I can advise you to be weary. February 5, 2014
