I have noticed that there are threads about forgotten products from certain brands. I have also noticed that there was no thread about forgotten Oreck products, So I decided to make one. This thread is about Oreck products that are either extremely rare or downright forgotten. So I will start: The Oreck Aviator. The Oreck Aviator was apparently made at the same time as the Oreck Platinum Pilot but was not advertised or on the website, so it is no suprise that there are very few photos of the Aviator. So if you guys know of any forgotten Oreck products then feel free to share them.

The XL Legend is a rarer model to come across. Itís a variant of the XL21 but it has a red color and a closed-looped handle that was not the helping-hand handle nor the regular comfort grip handle used on all XL21ís with the open-end on the back. If Iím not mistaken this was the only one to use this handle exclusively. It was made towards the latter part of the XL21ís production in 2008/2009ish.

I second about the XL Legend. Though I think the blue version is more rare than the red one.

That's the same handle used on the Dual Stack units. It was called, Helping Hand Version 2.

I could list many forgotten Oreck products, but here are a few that come to mind.

Celoc 1500/3500 Canister (One had a cord reel and one didn't)
Bigfoot Upright (Did Oreck actually make this or not?)
Dual Stack
Oreck Radio 8lb Upright
Wet/Dry Vac WD69 (Previously Douglas)
Edge U8000 Series (Only Oreck Lightweight w/ onboard hose that I know of)

Idk where the pic is but somewhere out there is a shiny chrome 1970s Oreck stick vacuum. I'd nominate that

Love me some forgotten Oreck products. Wouldn't this belong in the vintage section?

As a fan of canisters, I like that 3500!
And, as a fan of the odd, I like the one with the built-in radio. For the life of me, I can't find anything worth listening to on the radio any more. But, I like the oddness of it!

The best Oreck I ever tried and liked was the Dutchtech canister series.

Oreck rebadge of a Dirt Devil

Here is a machine known as the Oreck Sweep Simple. It appears to be a rebadge of the Dirt Devil Vac+Dust.
