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.
Oreck® Magnesium® RS
At 7.7 pounds*, Magnesium RS is the lightest, full-powered, swivel-steering upright vacuum cleaner in America. With its new SlimSwivel™ Design and furniture-friendly, low-profile physique it's an effortless way to maneuver around any obstacle and clean every floor in your home—upstairs and downstairs. The wireless two-speed QuickSwitch® in the handle enables you to select the right power levels and move smoothly across all floor types. The large, high-performance wheels give Magnesium RS the agility it needs for every surface, from hardwood and tile to plush and frieze carpet without stopping for manual adjustments. It's so lightweight that carrying it upstairs is a cinch and so powerful it feels self-propelled.
