Engineered for the way you live

Direct Suction

The direct suction and roller brush rotating at over 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

Its low profile, soft top and sides, bright twin LED headlights, and the longer 35-ft. power cord make it a cinch to cover a lot of ground quickly and get in and out of tight spots without scratching furniture. Side brushes make cleaning baseboards and edges easy.


HEPA Inner Bag

The Oreck Forever® Series Pilot 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 the following: pollen, house dust, smoke, animal dander and mold spores.


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

Disappointed I have been a loyal Oreck owner for more than 20 years. 5 years ago, I purchased the pilot. It certainly has not been the same experience with this new "upgraded" product. I owned the older, basic model for approx. 15 years and never had any problems or issues with that model. Since owning the Pilot, it feels like one thing after another. Now, after purchasing this product, today the representatives in the store tell me it is not meant for thick carpet. I didn't think I had thick carpet, it is all berber carpet and a few area rugs. None of them I believe are thick. Website does not state that the pilot cannot be used on thick carpet or that the belts should be changed every 6 months as the Oreck representative at the store indicated. April 12, 2014
Vacumm Hard to push on carpet My Oreck XL vacuum cleaner so hard to push? The product info states that ease of MOVEMENT, which I do not have. It picks things up just fine and I have no problem vacuuming on my hardwood, tile and area rugs. The problem is when I vacuum my wall to wall carpeting, VERY hard to push. Oreck repair store from Braintree MA told me the vacuum was functioning normally. I should get my money back.... August 22, 2013
Hate the handheld, love the upright We love the upright vacuum but not the handheld. I wish it was all in one. The handheld is impossible to use the attachments never stay attached and comes off over and over again when trying to vacuum. Also it is very short. February 13, 2013
Oreck Forever™ Series Pilot Power Team Pros: The vacuum is light weight and easy to assemble. It picks up debris on all surfaces of my home. i like the ability to test drive it before making the final decision to keep it or not. i don't sneeze when I vacuum. I like the two separate vacuums so that I don't have to lug both around when doing only one task. In between: It takes a bit to get used to in regards to the pivoting body. It will pivot even if you did not intend it to do so. Cons: My husband states that he has had to cut hair out already and we haven't owned it that long. My thought is that at least it is picking up the dirt. The cost of the bags are a bit pricey. October 23, 2012
This product is flimsy The vacum is overpriced. The design is O.K. But the durability is substandard. I'v had to rebuild the roller a couple of times and today the handle felloff. The plastic retainer pins shattered. A replacement part doesn't seem to be an option. November 6, 2012
Does not shut off as promised One of the main reasons I bought this expensive Pilot was because they showed us in the showroom if you try to run over the cord or anything else it would shut off.. As usual, I ran over the cord a little bit and it did not shut off. Also, it would not shut off when we ran over fringe on a rug. It also does not vacuum shag rugs, as we have some throw rugs that are shag. It is quiet and moves good and easily. September 10, 2012
Excellent Vacuum My husband got this vacuum for me as I am wheelchair bound and cannot maneuver the big vacuum we had with the on board tools. Since I enjoy vacuuming (and he does not), he got me this one. I love this vacuum!!! I have found I can even use it in place of our electric broom with the setting on high. It is light, maneuvers easily and is very attractive. The best part is the power! It really cleans. May 20, 2012
The unit turns easily I bought this most expensive model & I hate it. After each room I vacuum I have to sit down with the unit upside down in my lap & pick out, pull out and cut out all the human hair, animal hair & debree wrapped around the beater-brush bar. When I contacted Oreck & informed them, they merely threw some xtra bags & an attachment at me & called it good. If I don't pick/pull/cut...the belt broke & I could smell the motor burning up, which prompted this routine to begin with. So if you have any hair on your head, a pet with fur or anything larger than dust...NO. I DO NOT RECOMMEND THIS OR ANY ORECK. May 1, 2012
