I have had an Oreck for years and while it did okay I am not in love with it. We recently changed carpeting in most of the house to a twist or frieze carpet as it is now called. The Oreck does not do a good job on it at all and it takes all the strength I have to vacuum the carpet. I called my local Oreck dealer and he said the way the Oreck was designed it did not do a good job on the type of carpet I had installed. He said he could do some retrofitting which might help.
The Oreck is 10-12 years old and I would like to replace it but I want something which would work on my kind of carpet. Do any of you have the twist carpet and, if you do, what kind of vacuum cleaner do you have?
Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
