Looks like some kind of cordless stick vac from oreck, there is only a breif glimpse of the machine at the end of the video on this page. Looks like it may be bagged, which would be interesting.

Just found more information at this link. I think the price might be a tad high.

It is rather expensive, but I think that POD concept is really interesting, but are they disposable? I'm guessing so. The "expandable" feature is neat! I'd like to know more about this and would be interested in seeing how it performs. A 40 minute run time is not too bad! I wish they could cut down on the charge time though.

I agree the specs look pretty good on paper. I'm guessing the pods are basically a bag. It also looks like it is direct air, judging by the design of the intake. Also looks like the outside of the "pod" storage system is a pourous material to diffuse air. It certainly is interesting.

Ok I got the latest from a lovely woman named Charlotte at Oreck Customer Service.

The Oreck Cordless Pod will be released in the Spring, she is guessing June and it will first ONLY be available in the Oreck Branded Stores and she was not clear if the “preorder” online orders would be delivered before or at the same time the Store releases them.

She said the “Pod” is the disposal method which is a fiber/paper bag with plastic cap and it snaps into the vacuum but when its full and you dispose of it she said you don’t touch the pod, just eject it into the trash for clean hands free disposal.

It is going to be $499 but it will come with many attachments and lots of features (Mini Motorized Brushroll, Dusting Brush, Upholstery tool and Crevice are just some of them, She said there is about 8 attachment tools for the Pod. It will run for 40 minutes on a 2 1/2 hour charge and the battery is NOT removable. So far the non-removable battery is the only thing I see I wont like.

They were told about this Pod in December and she said the latest information for them is still rather vague as it’s literally still in the final development stages. If you sign up with your email at Oreck you will be kept informed of new information regarding the Oreck Cordless Pod.

I can’t wait to order this and if they don’t do online ordering first.. I’ll be driving an hour to the nearest Oreck Store. She said they will NOT be sold in the dealer stores that sell other vacuums and Oreck but only in the actual Oreck branded Stores.

Thanks so much for sharing @singingrainbow. I’d just looked at the Oreck site the other day and didn’t see this. I will let you guys know on here if I find out anything else.

Interesting that it seems to only be advertised at "" but not at

The  pods look like they could be costly.

Like anything else "innovative" and "limited distribution" it will be very costly to begin with, but give it a few years and the price will fall off.

A direct air cordless machine, interesting. Probably won't be a bad performer but probably not a full sized vac replacement.

Post# 386254 , Reply# 9   2/16/2018 at 22:53 by HonestJoe68 (Mansfield, Ohio)        

I found more information on the Oreck Pod... I found out it will be offered in Black and White. I also found out it is going to be advertised as a “full size upright” and the brushroll is to be better than Dyson or any of the other cordless vacuums. It will have a combination of Stiff Bristles for deep carpet cleaning mixed with softer (and longer) bristles for hard floor cleaning. It’s supposed to have unbelievable suction, the best in class for a cordless.

The disposable “Pods” are expandable to save space when new in package and I think I mentioned but in case I didn’t.. you will never have to touch the full pod when emptying the vacuum.. it will pop off and into the trash can.

The Oreck Pod Cordless will have a BlueTooth phone app, similar to the Hoover REACT and it’s call “InVision Intelligence” combining the app and indicator lights to show bag capacity, as well as battery capacity and other perfomance indicators.

One thing I was told by the Oreck Representative Charlotte may be wrong as you will see in the picture I’ve attached. She said the Oreck Pod would only be sold in Oreck Branded Stores.. but the display model in the picture is located in a Vacuum store that sells many brands. I also am confused by this that she told me because as @LuxKid1980 said, they are advertising it now on Which sells other brand vacuums like Miele, etc. Charlotte did admit they were intentionally keeping them in the dark somewhat as they want this to be the next huge thing for Oreck. We shall see.....

Lastly, it will have what Oreck is calling the “White Glove Warranty” which I’m told is an all inclusive (even the battery) warranty that for THREE years, everything will be fixed free of charge and the typical yearly Oreck “Tuneups” will be included as well for the Pod.

tfw when there's a teaser trailer for a stick vac.

idk it looks like an interesting setup. It's really neat that they're using - basically - a bagged setup and not giving in to the bagless revolution. Good for them. I hope they actually sell some, but at that price... eh...

A bagged stick vac?!

I never owned one of those types of vacs but considering it's bagged I'm interested.

Looks like the Oreck POD is now finally available for purchase! I'm waiting for my local Oreck store to get them in stock so I can run it through the paces. Great to see that it has a 100 day "Love It" guarantee and a 3-year warranty.

Doesn't it have an air powered floorhead?

I don't like the sound of that 🙈

Post# 388512 , Reply# 14   3/19/2018 at 11:59 by luxkid1980 (Richmond, Virginia)        

I was wondering about that too. It does however say that the brushroll tool is air powered.

Post# 388514 , Reply# 15   3/19/2018 at 12:02 by luxkid1980 (Richmond, Virginia)        

I see now, it does say air powered floorhead. I've never used one before so not sure how they perform. I foresee no issues on the hard surfaces, but carpets may be a different story.

They should have made it an electric powered nozzle then they would have a very good product that I'd like to own.

Post# 388516 , Reply# 17   3/19/2018 at 12:09 by luxkid1980 (Richmond, Virginia)        

Well, I think it is an interesting product and I'm excited to at least try it out.

I like the fact that it's bagged and has a good run time I just can't get on with air powered nozzles.

Post# 388520 , Reply# 19   3/19/2018 at 12:19 by luxkid1980 (Richmond, Virginia)        

I am guessing that an electric powered nozzle would have caused the battery life to be greatly reduced.

Yes it would you're correct 😊. But most of it's competitors have a power nozzle.

I can think of many other things I'd spend $569.00 on...geez. Another overpriced Oreck product, thanks TTI! Honestly, I don't know how the Oreck brand is surviving, I've seen no advertisement for the brand in years now. St. Louis has gone from seven stores, to three, and I think selling Miele is what's keeping them in survival mode...very sad. Only two of the stores are Oreck/Miele only, the third went multi-line when given the opportunity.

While it is pretty expensive, its an interesting looking machine. And, its nice to see Oreck coming out with something new at least. They have had some great machines over the years and they sold well. Speaking of commercials or a lack thereof, I don't believe I have ever seen a miele commercial on TV, at least not in my area.

Looks like the Dyson V10 has a competitor!!The Oreck-570 bucks??Too rich for me!!Will stick with my simplicity Freedom Cordless.Don't know what the price of the dyson V10 is.The "pods" appear to be an interesting alternative to bags or bagless.But--how much debris can they hold?For that price the vacuum should have POWERED-electric powernozzles.Interesting that both the Oreck or Dyson can be a stick upright vacuum or a hand vacuum.

Yes it should definitely have an electric power nozzle. That is a deal breaker.

Maybe we will be pleasantly surprised :)

Post# 388584 , Reply# 27   3/20/2018 at 11:12 by luxkid1980 (Richmond, Virginia)        

Mark, how long does the V10 take to charge?

I hope we are 😁

The V10 takes 3 half hours to charge with is an improvement over the V8 which takes 5 hours.

Although because I only use it for quick pick ups it never runs down completely so I put it back in the stand and it's fully charged in less than half that time.

This will improve greatly in the coming years when graphene batteries become available.

Post# 388586 , Reply# 29   3/20/2018 at 11:30 by luxkid1980 (Richmond, Virginia)        

Yeah, would be nice if the charge time could be much quicker. That Kobalt push mower I have, which takes a hefty lithium ion battery can fully charge from zero in 30 minutes. Wish these vacuums could do that!

I’m so glad I waited to order this Oreck Cordless. Even though I still really want it.. I will wait until I can stop by the Oreck store and give it a try. Especially since the hand held mini and floor brushroll are AIR driven and not electric motor driven.

They could surprise me and if so I’ll buy one on the spot. BUT if there is the least bit of shrill sound or stall out of either brushroll when it’s operating.. No way, I won’t be buying this either.

It’s a shame too as Oreck and TTI might have had a real contender for the V10, but this is no where near as advanced with Air powered tools, but still priced almost the same as the V10! Bummer

I’ll let you guys know and hopefully too soon, we will see a video on YouTube and can listen and see the performance of the brushrolls.

The best part of my Dyson V8 is the powerful brushrolls, both standard and fluffy. I will take slightly reduced run time for more power.

One last thing, my call to Oreck today did confirm one GOOD thing about the Oreck Pod. The Runtime of 40 minutes is solid regardless of what tools are used and it will never will be less than 40 minutes. That and a shorter 2 1/2 hour charge time had me ready to buy. Also, the entire Pod thing had me sold.. but now I’ll be waiting... who knows.

I really don't like the new logo they unveiled with it, but the product looks interesting overall. I'm happy that Oreck has stuck with their strong suit, bags, and brought a bagged machine to this market segment. The benefits of bags are a huge part of their overall sales pitch (along with weight) so I'm glad they didn't repeat something like the Touch (bagless) from the last days before the TTI buyout.
