Oreck Commercial XL Pro 5 Canister Vacuum - Model BB900DGR
Oreck Commercial XL Pro 5 Canister Vacuum, Model BB900DGR is small, lightweight and rather strong, portable canister vacuum cleaner. It uses disposable vacuum bags, enabling the user to get rid of the dirt in a fast and clean way.

Such relatively small motor enables the unit to be rather light - it weighs only 5 pounds (~2.27 kg) without the cleaning hose and attachments.

Shoulder strap enables the user to carry the unit even up the ladder with easy and with safety in mind - during the climbing, vacuum is on the shoulder, both hands on the ladder. During operation, one hand holds the ladder, second hand operate the vacuum. Of course, this is just an example, if you are unsure, don't do it :)
Extension wand is adjustable and it connects to the 4 ft (~1.2 m) flexible hose to help cleaning various surfaces from the floor to the ceiling.
Power cord is 30 feet (~9.1 m) long and it enables the user to clean rather large area without changing the power outlet. Oreck Commercial BB900DGR doesn't have automatic rewind system - the power cord is manually wrapped onto the unit's cable wraps.
When considering disposable bags, original Oreck bags are affordable and have excellent air filtering characteristics.
Depending on the type of disposable bag, some models even include a layer of activated charcoal, for removing even odors from the air.
