As one of the pioneers of vacuum cleaners, Oreck used only to sell bagged vacuums, but boy times have changed.
And we’ll be looking at their latest product that doesn’t have a bog – the Commercial grade CK93010 TaskVac.
25 minutes fade-free
It’s a line that Oreck recently launched and uses the M-PWR Lithium-Ion battery with a quick charge feature that’ll run for 25 minutes fade-free.
This lightweight cordless brings Oreck pedigree without having any cords, which make this an excellent in-between vacuum.
Some potential issues
The downside to commercial vacuums is the short warranty – this one only comes with a one year warranty.
Oreck is used by a lot of hotels in the United States because of its quality and performance, and we’ll find out why here.

What to expect from the Oreck Commercial CK93010 TaskVac?
The Oreck Commercial CK93010 is Oreck’s first foray into the cordless and bagless niche, and from what I’ve read, this product looks promising.
In terms of design, it is similar to products such as the Hoover Linx Stick and the Hoover Commercial TaskVac that only does one task, which is clean floors.
Powered Brush Roll On/Off
A motorized brush roll is an essential tool in being an efficient cleaner on carpet, but it’s not a necessity when cleaning bare floors.
So Oreck has put a brush on/off feature that will allow you to turn on the brush when cleaning carpet and turn it off on bare floors.
It is a useful feature, especially if you have hardwood that scratches easily.
It’s the same feature in the Hoover Linx BH50010, which is a popular stick vacuum in Amazon with over 9,000 reviews!
It’s the same feature found in the Hoover Linx BH50010 that helped propel it to the best seller status for a long time in Amazon.
Here’s a photo of the brush roll.
One thing I like would be the gaps on the front and side that allow more significant bits of dirt to pass through.
The brush roll does not stretch to the edge, so cleaning corners and sides could be an issue.
Access to the brush on/off is easily accessible through a switch on the handle. There are three options brush on, brush off, and power off.
You’d use the brush roll on option carpet and off on the bare floor.
Bottom Release Dirt Cup
One of my biggest pet peeves in owning bagless vacuums would be how messy it can be to clean up.
And Oreck tries to address this by equipping this product with a latch at the bottom where a trap door opens and gravity takes over as dirt falls.
But hair can wrap around the plastic shroud in the middle, so pay close attention and clean this part periodically.
It’s a good design in theory, but if you’re cleaning a lot of pet hair, it can wrap up on the baffle area in the middle.
It is the same issue again found in the Hoover Linx, which I keep on referencing to because these two vacuums are almost similar in design.
If you own expensive furniture, then you’ll appreciate this feature that protects your furniture from scuff marks. It’s built-in padding made from rubber that covers the plastic frame of the main cleaning head.
M-PWR Lithium-Ion Battery
Powering this stick vacuum is the M-PWR lithium-ion battery that will allow this machine to run for around 25 minutes.
It’s more than enough to clean up high traffic areas inside your office space or dining room.
However, you will need to remove the battery from the vacuum when it needs to recharge. Oreck did not include a plug-in charger that you can plug on the vacuum, so it’s an extra step you need to take.
The good news is you can buy extra batteries to minimize downtime – you can still use the vacuum while charging the spare battery. With two batteries run, time goes from 25 to 50 minutes, which is fantastic for a cordless.
One thing that makes this an effective cleaner on carpets is the powered brush roll. The EnduroLife belt connects the brush and the motor.
To protect the belt from premature wear, Oreck engineers an automatic shutdown feature that shuts off the motor when it detects brush jams.
Bare Floor Cleaning
Combine the brush on/off feature and suction, and the CK93010 TaskVac is capable of cleaning bare floors such as hardwood and tile.
Consumers appreciate the power that this vacuum brings to the table. The ability to turn off the brush is great because there is minimal risk of scratching hardwood that scuffs easy.
But since the brush does not go all the way to the edge so it may not clean edges thoroughly.
Turn on the brush roll, and this vacuum a decent carpet cleaning machine. It has enough suction and agitation to pick up surface dirt and some debris trapped in between fibers. But this will not be able to deep clean.
It also has enough agitation to pick up pet hair on carpets. However, you will need to regularly clean the brush roll if you’re dealing with lots of pets.
Oreck backs this product up with a one year warranty. Most commercial vacuums available right now only have a one year warranty because these are utilized in commercial settings, so it takes a beating.
|Brush roll on/off||Yes|
|Battery||20 volt Lithium Ion
|Charging time||3-5 hours|
|Battery life||25 minutes|
|Shipping weight||12.4 pounds|
|Energy Star Rated||N/A|
Two things that consumers like about this vacuum are performance and quality.
A lot of the reviews say that this product has decent suction and capable of picking up substantial amounts of dirt like pet hair and dust. However, there was one complaint of dog hair clogging the motorized brush.
It is an issue with vacuums that have a motorized brush – hair wrapping upon it. It’s not a big deal if you regularly clean it.
Quality is another trademark of Oreck products. The quality of plastic in this vacuum feels solid, not cheap, unlike those in cheap brands. There’s a reason why a lot of hotels and similar establishments use Oreck.
In terms of quality, one consumer said that this product is similar to the Oreck UK2200 XL.
A cordless UK2200 XK
This model is a cordless version of it. I’m thinking the consumer meant that it’s similar when it comes to how it cleans floors, not necessarily how it looks because these are far from being similar.
However, you won’t be able to clean up a lot of dirt with this vacuum because the dirt cup is small.
You won’t be able to charge the battery on the vacuum. It has to be taken out and plugged on a separate charger. An extra battery is also available for sale at Oreck, but it isn’t cheap.
Oreck did not overrate this feature.
It will run for 25 minutes with the brush roll on and longer if it’s off.
So potential issues
Some reviews say that does not swivel, but looking at some photos, it seems that it does, but you will not mistake this for a Dyson.
Moving this around can be a little tough because it lacks swivel steering, and it won’t lay flat. The bulky body will not fit deep under furniture, so take this into account.
Where Can I Buy This?
You can buy this stick vacuum from Amazon. Take note that if you make a purchase through the link, I will earn a commission, but at no additional cost to you, so it’s a win-win for both of us.
To Wrap Up
The Oreck Commercial CK93010 is an excellent commercial option if you’re looking for a spot cleaner in a commercial setting. It has enough power and run time to cover a decent-sized, high traffic office space, or cafeteria.
For commercial use
Since this vacuum is for commercial use, you don’t have to worry about the warranty even in a commercial setting.
But I would not recommend it for home use since other models are less expensive that has a more extended warranty.
It’s strictly a floor cleaner with a small bin so you will need to empty often, but it’s pretty good at its job, so if you need some time for a commercial space, give this a look.
One big selling point for this would be the price. While it’s not as versatile as a Shark IONFlex or Dyson V8, it’s much cheaper. Even if you pair this with a handheld like a Black & Decker BDH2000FL, you’d still spend less.
