Can you switch between hard floor and carpet function, i.e. can the brush be deactivated to protect laminate or hardwood floors?
I've had one of these for over six months. As much as I hate to vacuum, I find it a pleasure once I start using this machine, the Oreck Pro Power Plus. I think most people will be pleasantly surprised by the items I like; powerful suction, great pick-up on carpets, quiet compared to an older Oreck I owned, and lightweight. I was worried that a machine that costs as little as this one would end up being an inefficient piece of junk, but I think it's one of the best purchases I've ever made. Hope this helps, I'm happy....
