Vacuums Glossary of Terms

Oreck Magnesium Lightweight

The Oreck LW100 weighs only 7.7 lbs.

Lightweight Vacuum = A lightweight vacuum is much easier to manuever and carry than a traditional heavy vacuum. These type of vacuums are ideal for the eldery. You also have the advantage that most lightweight vacuums can lay flat to get under furniture and beds. Oreck Magnesium LW100 and LW1500RS vacuums weigh only 7.7 lbs., making it easy to vacuum and carry them up stairs. Cordless stick vacuums such as Dyson’s V6 Cordless Stick Vacuums weigh as little as 5 lbs., with no cords, yet have the power of an upright.
Bagged Vacuum = A bagged vacuum stores all the dirt and dust in a disposable bag. Many are self sealing, so that dust does not go everywhere when you remove the bag. Bagged vacuums usually have a larger capacity to store dirt and dust than Bagless Vacuums. Part of the filtration system is built-in to the bag.
Self Sealing Bag = Some bagged vacuums have dust bags that seal shut when you remove them from the vacuum. This prevents dust from getting in the air when you are changing bags. All Oreck and Miele vacuums have self sealing bags.
Saniseal System = Automatically seals the bag shut, which will lock the dirt into the disposable filter bag, so no dust escapes when changing bags.
Soft/Plush & High Pile Carpets = Oreck magnesium vacuums are some of the most recommended by soft carpet manufacturers such as Mohawk, for hard to vacuum soft carpet brands such as SmartStrand Silk, Caress®, Karastan, and Soft Spring. Oreck has two models, Oreck Magnesium SP LW100 and the Oreck Magnesium RS LW1500RS vacuums. These both have a floating head design that allows the vacuum to float on the carpet without getting bogged down, and have oversize wheels, which is great for higher and plusher soft carpets.
Magnesium Frame = Some higher end Oreck Magnesium vacuums use magnesium metal for the frame of the vacuum which is lighter and stronger than many types of steel. It is also very light, allowing these vacuums to weight under 8 lbs.
Annual Tuneups = On Orecks higher end vacuums, they offer free annual tuneups at Oreck stores.
Swivel Steering = Swivel steering allows you to more easily maneuver around furniture and other objects. This feature is only available on the Oreck Magnesium RS LW1500RS upright vacuum.
Two Speeds = Some Oreck vacuums have two speeds. The lower speed can be used on more delicate oriental and other area rugs, as well as hard floors.
LED Headlights = Vacuums with LED headlights allow you to see dirt and dust and under furniture as you vacuum.
HEPA Filter = A HEPA filter is the best type of dirt filtration on a vacuum. This will remove the smallest particles of dirt, dust, and pet hair so that you don’t breathe in what you are vacuuming. This is especially important for those with allergies.
Oreck Commercial Vacuum = Oreck has a line of commercial uprights vacuums, built to last, lightweight, and easy to carry. These vacuums also have extra long power cords. The Oreck Commercial 2100RHS has a 35 foot cord, while the Oreck Commercial U2000R-1 has a 40 foot cord.
