Last year I was fortunate to be able to receive an Oreck XL Gold Vacuum for review. We’ve been very pleased with it and have never had a problem. When I was offered the opportunity to review Oreck’s latest, the first thing I wondered was what had changed. I checked it out online and read a bit about it. I was intrigued by the new features and really wanted to check them out so I decided to accept. Boy am I glad I did, and you will be too. (Keep reading.)
The Oreck Platinum Pilot Vacuum is a two piece system. The system comes in one big box with an upright vacuum and a lightweight handheld vac.
It make look like an ordinary upright vacuum but the Oreck Platinum Pilot Vacuum Cleaner was designed with a 360° Glide technology and ball-joint and pivot connection that allows the vacuum to tilt, twist and turn anywhere you need it to go without repositioning the vacuum – making cleaning more effective, faster and easier. If you didn’t know you’d probably never guess that it can vacuum while laying flat, allowing you to vacuum under things. The vacuum has an advanced HEPA filtration with antimicrobial protection.
The Oreck Platinum Pro system’s handheld vacuum weighs in at about 5 pounds and comes with 8 attachments and a hypo-allergenic filtration system.
There’s lots more to tell you about this info but I’m going to save that for a couple of additional posts that I have planned, along with some video.
The Oreck Platinum Pilot Vacuum retails for $599 and is available for purchase at Oreck Clean Home Centers nationwide and online at oreck.com.
Yes, it’s true, I did say “win it”. The winner of this giveaway will receive this same vacuum – the Oreck Platinum Pilot, retail price $599.95!
