Another upright vacuum question

oldjgwNovember 18, 2008

I have a slight disability so I can not lug heavy uprights around. I do like uprights though.

My need is for something to quick run over hardwood floors and some rugs before people arrive or just for a fast clean-up. I've tried a Eureka "The Boss" cordless. Just OK for the wood floors but just doesn't do the rugs. I tried the Dirt Devil "i" M130000 (The big red one) it was great but too heavy and hard for me to push around the rugs.

We've got a Meile canaster for heavy cleaning but it's too many pieces to find etc. for a quick job.

Has anyone used the Oreck? Gets lots of ads but I've never seen one used.

Please give me your suggestions. Thanks

I have a Hoover Nano lite. It is small, bagless and cheap. I got it at Walmart.

I have the Oreck it is great on bare floors, and is light weight easy to move around, but not for area rugs. will do wall to wall carpet it is great. I love it,but do not understand why it will do bare floors, and not area rugs. Gailee
