Not sure if Oreck is now part of TTI, but here’s an Oreck clone of the classic Hoover Portapower Compact vacuum….see link below….

TTI has owned Oreck since 2013 after they filed for bankruptcy. That machine was bundled with Oreck uprights WAY before the Buster B was even a thing.

I have an Oreck branded portapower too. Except mine is orange and has built in wheels.

Actually Oreck in the past used to have other companies make products for them. Oreck had Hoover made those before both of the brands were later acquired by TTI, kind of a coincidence.

Isn't it sad to see that

"Portapower' with that name on it?  It all now is thrown in together.

This is very old and very early. This is nowhere near recent. Likely 40 years old. 1981 or 1982 somewhere around there. This was when Oreck was first starting out. That was Oreck's first logo design.

The OSHA certification on the bottom means this was a model made for the commercial market.
