I received a new toy yesterday...


While I have never been much of an Oreck "fan", the latest progression on the XL21 series has turned me into a convert...

This Forever Series Gold uses the same two-speed Johnson motor used in the XL21 series, so it runs quietly for a modern fan-first machine.


In addition, this machine now incorporates an Endurolife belt, which is Oreck's name for a flat kevlar belt. If the roller becomes jammed, the motor will shut off.

Oreck is also confident in the quality of this machine and offers a limited lifetime warranty that covers parts and labour.


This machine cleans very well, is quiet and has great filtration thanks to the option of using synthetic bags. If you have any questions or any photo requests, let me know...

The XL21/Platinum/Forever Gold series are my favorite Orecks. I have worked part-time for Oreck for six years now, and they're my favorite to sell, and use at home. They hold up very well, as long as they're maintained and don't suffer abuse or neglect. Like any other vacuum, you treat it well, and it will serve you well.

I might have to think about investing in one of those! I currently have an XL21 that I really like, but I really like the improvements that they made with this design!

I have absolutely no need for another vacuum cleaner, but I want one of those!

Can we use the new style belt on the xl 21 or is the belt pully different?

The motor pulley appears to be indentical to the XL21...

However, if the roller stalled, there is no circuit breaker to prevent damage to the motor.

It looks like the Oreck X21 has a circuit board inside to protect the motor-it acts as the circuit breaker.In one of the pictures of the machine with the floor shoe removed-I see a circuit board.the board should protect the motor in case something gets jammed or wrapped in the fan.
