My review and perspective on model: Oreck Pilot vacuum cleanerThis is the Oreck Pilot Vacuum Cleaner Review please check the reviews page for a comparison of other vacuum cleaners.
The Oreck Pilot is a relatively new, but great addition to the Oreck line. Based on the critically acclaimed and long loved Oreck XL 2000 Upright with a wider path, and a larger more powerful motor, the Oreck Pilot will no doubt become a classic. Weighing in at only 10lbs it is still lighter than many vacuum cleaners on the market. Quality, made in America, construction and a 5 year warranty give you the peace of mind that this vacuum will be with you for years to come. The unique swivel head makes getting around corners, and into tight spaces a breeze. A long 30 foot cord allows you to do all of your vacuuming without the need to unplug and replug your Oreck Pilot Vacuum over and over again. Also check out the Oreck Insight based on the same platform as the Pilot the Insight is about a pound lighter, but does not feature the swivel head.
There are no bells and whistles with the Oreck Pilot (aside from the 360° glide technology swivel head), which is unfortunate for many who would like to use hoses and attachments. However, this simplicity increases the reliability, and cannot really be considered a bad thing in this circumstance. Especially now that Oreck has given us the Oreck Quest Canister Vacuum and the Oreck Edge Cordless Handheld Vacuum one can hardly complain about lack of functionality from Oreck anymore.
A HEPA filtration bag lining the inside of the Oreck Pilot will reduce the amount of dust and pollen in your home, great for allergy sufferers. In the long time that I have been in the vacuum cleaner industry my general standard for vacuum cleaner manufacturers has lowered in recent years. Every year vacuum cleaners come out with cheaper and cheaper designs, more gimmicks, but less actual substance or quality. The opposite is true for Oreck, I've always had an appreciation for the Oreck XL 2000 and it's place in the vacuum cleaner market, but now that Oreck has begun filling more segments of the market with their high quality vacuum cleaners I can truly say that I have become an Oreck fan.

The Oreck Pilot is a Commercial / Residential vacuum designed for use in the Commercial / Residential environment. I have reviewed it accordingly, the price point of the Oreck Pilot is set for the Commercial / Residential industry which should be taken into consideration when purchasing or thinking about purchasing this vacuum. Commercial vacuum cleaners may be built to last longer and endure more abuse, but are more expensive and may be lacking some of the luxuries (such as light weight, or low noise) that you are accustomed to. On the contrary Residential vacuums are made at lower price points, lower quality, but are often lighter and quieter to use. Please feel free to add your own perspective of the Oreck Pilot Vacuum Cleaner Review.
