Years ago I saw in an office an Old Hoover TurboPower and an Oreck XL commercial. If you told me one day that Oreck would have HOOVER slapped across it i would've thought you were nuts. Lots of vacs now appear to have the same molds with different brand named printed on it because of the big mergers like TTI. And probably some other mergers too. Just curious what some of the vacuumland members think about this situation. Is it good or bad in your eyes? Here is a new Hoover (Oreck) "Primelite". It looks nice though I think.

Not fond of it

We've seen the Hoover name on the cordless orecks we've seen the royal name on an oreck too. It's weird but I can't say I'm surprised by it.

Cordless Oreck-Now you see it, now you don’t. Poof!

That cordless Oreck that bore the Hoover OnePwr name is now history. I found no trace of it on Hoover’s website. This means that currently Hoover only offers one cordless machine with “HEPA”- ish filtration. This is sad. This isn’t real Hoover anymore. It’s Hoover back from the dead…the “zombie” version.

Maybe Dirt Devil would eventually follow along. I'd like to see a bagged portable Dirt Devil again, only the central vacs are bagged now.

Yeah it's kind of a shame they were hovering around 200 for a while which is a pretty good deal but the design lives on under the commercial lineup with a 40v battery now. OH I guess those orecks as seen above are part of the commercial lineup

There was also already a Hoover badged Oreck commercial unit. Only ONE video of the thing exists though.

Good to see the original style Oreck in production. That makes it easy to get parts for units going back 20+ years.

I’m already bored with it.

The vacuum cleaner industry used to be so dynamic and full of innovation. Nowadays, if the big name companies aren’t licensing their own brand names on Oreck and Tacony products, they just take their own canister and slap it together with Wessel-Werk attachments. Sometimes it feels like this industry is out of fresh ideas.
