Oreck CK93010 Commercial TaskVac Features and Specifications
Oreck CK93010 Commercial TaskVac is stylish looking stick vacuum cleaner, powered with power fade-free 5-cells 20V lithium ion battery.
Lithium battery is detachable and charged outside the vacuum cleaner using purpose built Oreck's M-PWR battery charger, allowing the user to do the vacuuming with the spare battery, which must be ordered separately - Oreck CK93010 comes with one battery and one charger.
Oreck's litihum 20V M-PWR battery is delivered only half-charged for safety reasons and it must be fully charged prior the first use - several LEDs (Blue, Red) signal to the user current condition of the battery, charger and charging process. When no LED is lit, charging process is complete and the battery can be detached from the charger.
Note: When the battery is fully charged, the charger stops the charging process, hence the battery can be left in the charger. As said before, Oreck CK93010 is simple to use and maintain vacuum cleaner, but when it arrives get accustomed to the unit - read the manual thoroughly and only then assemble the unit (few minutes at most) and charge the battery.
Both battery and dirt cup are on the back side of the vacuum and practically not visible from the front.
Battery is removed from the unit by gently pressing the red button and pulling the battery out of its slot. Similarly, fully charged battery is attached to the unit rather quickly - just be sure that it slides easily and that it has to more-or-less quietly 'snap/click' onto its position.
Oreck CK93010 Commercial TaskVac is lightweight stick vacuum cleaner weighing only 7.3 pounds (~3.3 kg) and thanks to the swivel mechanism, it is very maneuverable unit and able to clean near, around and often under floor obstacles, objects and along the walls.
Its cleaning path is ~10 inches (~25.4 cm), allowing the user to quickly cover and clean rather large area.
Controls are very simple and they allow the use to turn the unit ON with the brushroll not spinning for the cleaning of bare floors and sensitive carpets and to turn the unit ON with the brushroll spinning for the vacuuming of carpets, area rugs and similar surfaces.
When the unit is used for vacuuming the carpets (brushroll is spinning), operating time is 18-20 minutes on the single battery charge. When the brushroll is not spinning (bare floors), maximum operating time is slightly longer - up to 25 minutes.
Note: user can set the brushroll to spin or not, but the suction is always at the maximum. If the air flow through the unit is decreased, thermal protection system shuts off the motor preventing damage. If that happens, turn the unit off, detach the battery, empty the dirt bin, check the air filter and the brushroll, and check if there are clogs of any kind in the system. Also, let the unit cool down for at least 30 minutes before using the unit again. This and other maintenance procedures are given in the greater details in the manual - reason more to read it carefully :)
Dirt cup is translucent, enabling the user to see amount and type of picked up dirt. Also, dirt cup is detachable from the rest of the unit and thanks to the bottom emptying system, it can be quickly emptied without the user ever touching the dirt.
Air filtration is good, although the manufacturer doesn't state actual HEPA level. Air filtration is based on the cyclonic action and mechanical foam air filter.
Foam air filter is washable using cold water only. After rinsing, it must be completely air dried for at least 24 hours before reassembling it back into the unit.
Note: never use the unit with no air filter or with wet filter - doing so can damage the unit and void its 1-year limited warranty.

Main cleaner head features channels and gaps to help with the cleaning of larger debris, like crumbs, dry pets food and similar, without scattering them around.
