The Oreck Commercial OR102 Premier upright vacuum has a 16" cleaning path, Helping Hand handle, magnet bar, and 870-watt motor. This upright vacuum cleaner is better suited for cleaning carpets than typical canister vacuums and takes up less space for storage. The Helping Hand handle has received an Ease-of-Use Commendation from the Arthritis Foundation. The on/off switch is located in the handgrip for convenience. The vacuum contains a reusable cloth bag that is coated with an antimicrobial polymer that resists bacteria, mold, mildew, viruses, and corrosion. A roller brush with double ball bearings and four bristle strips moves debris toward the vacuum inlet for cleaning. A magnet bar helps prevent small metal objects such as staples from harming the motor. The vacuum fan is reinforced for durability. The metal hood has V-shaped motor vents for air circulation, and the front housing is clear so that blockages can be spotted. A heat overload protection system helps prevent damage to the motor if the vacuum bag is full. The vacuum head can be adjusted to six positions to accommodate different flooring surfaces. The chrome hood provides access to the motor and has smooth contours that enable it to be wiped clean. The foot release pedal is made of steel, which is a rigid metal that is resistant to rust and wear. Rear wheels help facilitate transport. A 50-foot power cord enables the vacuum to cover a larger area without changing outlets than vacuums with shorter cords. Cord strain relief provides flexibility and maneuverability. The vacuum weighs 16.5 pounds.
