Oreck XL Little Hero Canister Vacuum Cleaner Review - The Little Vac That Can

The Oreck XL Little Hero Canister Vacuum Cleaner (BB2000 Pet Vac) is Oreck’s small, ultra-portable canister vacuum that’s perfect for quick cleanups. From problem pet hair on upholstery to hard-to-reach corners and crevices, the Little Hero can handle it with ease.

The Oreck XL Little Hero is easy to assemble and use right out of the box. Getting started is as quick and easy as inserting the hose into the dust cup, choosing an attachment, and turning on the vacuum cleaner.

The dust cup on the XL Little Hero is somewhat small, as is to be expected on a canister vacuum of this size, however the jobs that the Little Hero is best suited for are small as well, making the dust bin size inconsequential. Emptying the dust cup can be a little cumbersome at first, but once you’ve done it a few times the process becomes insignificant.

All of the Little Hero’s filters are easily serviced. The main filter is cleaned by tapping and gently brushing the pleated element. The motor protection filter is washable, simply rinse in clean, warm water and allow to fully air dry before reinstalling into the vacuum cleaner. The exhaust filter, located above the Little Hero’s power cord, should be replaced every 6 months.

The XL Little Hero makes an excellent auxiliary vacuum to your normal, larger household vac as it’s smaller and more maneuverable in tight spaces and lighter weight for high reach places. With its convenient carry handle, the Little Hero is a breeze to tote up stairs, around the house, or out to the garage for detailing the car. Need a vacuum for your RV? The XL Little Hero is compact for stowing in small compartments, yet powerful enough to clean even the messiest RV from top to bottom.

The Oreck XL Little Hero does a good job with both carpets and bare floors and is powerful enough to remove pet hair from nearly any surface.

Oreck also includes a basic accessory kit, consisting of a 36" hose, floor head, two 16" extension wands, and a combination crevice tool/duster brush. The 36" hose on the Little Hero can be upgraded to 42" or 60" lengths. The floor head is a 10" wide, non-powered head. The combination crevice tool/duster brush is a little small for general house cleaning, but works great for detailing a car, truck, or RV. The nice thing is that Oreck accessories are universal, what fits one of their canister vacuum cleaners, fits all of their canister vacuums, giving you the option to use the full-sized versions of the crevice tool, duster brush, and turbo brush as all will fit perfectly on the Little Hero.


The Oreck XL Little Hero is a powerful performer that is well suited to apartments, homes, and small spaces.
