I love finding oddball listings online. I know Oreck had the carpet sweepers with this name, but I had no idea this vacuum even existed. An all gray Oreck Commercial Xl. I know many say these aren't great deep cleaners but they 100% are great vacuum cleaners for what they are and I always enjoy using my xl2 Ultra on the low pile carpets. Good vacuums I say! And reliable!!!!!

Intersting find. I've never seen one specially marketed toward a Restaurant. What style handle does it have?

Back in the day, Oreck would put whatever name you wanted on a vacuum, so long as the order was large enough. When I worked at an Oreck dealership I saw several that were branded for Merry Maids, and one for a charity organization called Ducks Unlimited. There was a 4000 series upright in pink along with a version of the XL21 with pink graphics benefitting Susan G. Komen breast cancer awareness. It's really a shame Oreck got gobbled up by TTI. Their newer uprights have circuit boards and torx screws. Whatever happened to keeping it basic?
