Oreck Elevate Bagged Upright Vacuums - Features and Specifications

All controls are on the handle, allowing the user to control the unit with one hand.

Oreck Elevate are lightweight units, with Control (UK30100) weighing around 9 pounds (~4.08 kg), and Command (UK30200) and Conquer (UK30300) weighing around 10 pounds (~4.53 kg), making them some of the lighter full-size upright vacuums on the market.

Such lightweight design ensures that Oreck Elevate vacuums can be easily carried around the home, even up and down the stairs.

Oreck Elevate vacuums are rated at 480 watts, which doesn't sound much when being compared with some high-power 1200-1500 watts units. But, Oreck Elevate design is simple and efficient, with suction motor being very close to the suction inlet and the vacuum bag being top filled, leading to very low energy loses.

Main cleaner head also features rotating brushroll, designed for thorough cleaning of carpeted and similar surfaces.

Note that only Oreck Elevate Control UK30100 features one brushroll speed and is not well suited for vacuuming bare floors. On the other hand Oreck Elevate Command UK30200 and Oreck Elevate Conquer UK30300 come with 2 brushroll speeds, helping these units thoroughly clean both carpets and bare floors.

Thanks to somewhat different design, Oreck Elevate Command UK30200 and Oreck Elevate Conquer UK30300 come with 'Self-Propelled Feel' and the best and side edge brushes of better quality than the belt and side edge brushes found on Oreck Elevate Control UK30100 model.

Oreck Elevate vacuums don't feature automatic power cord rewind systems - power cords are manually wrapped around wrap hooks. Oreck Elevate Control comes with 30 feet (~9.15 m) long power cord, while Oreck Elevate Command and Conquer come with 35 feet (~10.7 m) long power cord, ensuring long cleaning reach using just one wall power socket.

Note: despite being very simple to use and maintain vacuums, when Oreck Elevate arrives, be sure to read the manual thoroughly in order to get accustomed to your new vacuum.

Main cleaner head features low profile, helping the unit clean under most beds and some sofas.

In order to easily spot dirt in low light conditions, but also other floor objects and obstacles (smaller toys, socks, pet dry food etc.), all three models come with strong LED headlights on the main cleaner head.

In order to clean more thoroughly, main cleaner head also features side edge brushes which clean the wall and similar edges.

All three units are easy to maneuver around the floor objects and obstacles, but Oreck Elevate Conquer UK30300 comes with advanced SlimSwivel steering, making the unit very maneuverable, but still easy to control.

One of the interesting features are high-capacity vacuum bags. Vacuum bags feature top fill dirt/air inlet, ensuring good suction until the bags are almost full. Vacuum bags are disposable vacuum bags with SaniSeal system that automatically closes the bag, preventing the dust, allergens and other dirt from escaping.

Vacuum bags come in two versions.
