Oreck® Magnesium®

Sku # LW100LR
Write a review

Magnesium® is the lightest, full-powered upright vacuum cleaner in America. With its extremely strong, durable magnesium frame, the Magnesium 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 lays virtually flat for easy cleaning under furniture.

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 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 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 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.

Blogger Reviews

Wendy Will Blog The "nice height" of the Magnesium means no more hunching over for Wendy, who is 5'8". She also likes that she "could simply push the button to change the setting instead of turning it off, bending over, and rotating a dial to change settings." See full review on Wendy Will Blog.
Not Just A Housewife "This vacuum lays FLAT. It can go under your furniture in a way no other vacuum ever has," says Stacy, who is just as impressed that its powerful suction means she doesn't have to use a handheld vac to do the baseboards, either. Full review and photos at Not Just a Housewife.
Snap! Self-described vacuum connoisseur Tauni has a "super-awesome/naughty beagle named Jersey" whose mission in life is to leave fur all over the house. Magnesium has nipped that in the bud and cut her cleaning time as well. See other reasons why she calls it "the BEST vacuum I've ever owned" at snap!

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.
