I think you’ll agree with me when I say:

It’s REALLY hard to choose a vacuum cleaner with all the options available!

Or is it?

Well, it turns out, that after years and hundreds of hours of testing & reviewing, we have strong opinions about what makes the best air filtration system: level of purification, efficiency, and maintenance.

The Oreck Commercial ORB550MC (On special until end Jun, 2020) has all the qualities and features, giving it an added advantage and an edge over its competitors.

Quick Summary of the Oreck Commercial ORB550MC

The Oreck Commercial Orbiter makes it simple to scrub and polish all floor surfaces as well as deep clean institutional-grade carpets. Most conventional floor scrubbers can be difficult to use. That’s why the Orbiter has a brush head that rotates with no torque or gouging in a random orbit for easy-to-use fingertip control.

The Good & the Bad


  • The machine is very easy to use.
  • The random orbital motion is very balanced.
  • Easy to steer, light.


  • The 12-inch polishing width is not very big, but it is about the right size to tackle normal-size rooms.

Key Features

  • Floor buffer – Used for cleaning wood, vinyl, tile, and other hard floors and for dry-cleaning and loosening dirt from carpeted floors.
  • 50-foot power cord – Enables the floor machine to cover larger area without changing outlets than machines with shorter cords.
  • Weighs 24 pounds – Has 13" cleaning path.
  • Multi-Floor – Simple to scrub and polish all floor surfaces, as well as deep clean your carpets.
  • Versatile and virtually maintenance-free – Over time, all flooring shows the wear and tear of daily use. It brings your floors back to life.

Useful Product Info

  • Product Dimensions: 49.6 x 13.6 x 9.7 Inches

Our Verdict

The unit is an amazing vacuum cleaner, the machine is very easy to use. It doesn't have a mind of its own, and is very manageable with even one hand while reaching out to the far side of the fresh sealant. the random orbital motion is very balanced, and doesn't leave any apparent swirls. The 12-inch polishing width is not very big, but it is about the right size to tackle normal-size rooms, where a 17-inch industrial model would be overkill.
