Oreck Magnesium vs Touch what’s the difference?

There are some big difference between Oreck Magnesium and Touch that you would like to know before making a purchase.

1, Dirt Collecting Type
The Magnesium is bagged while the Touch is bagless.
Commonly, emptying a dust container is more messier than changing a bag. So, a bagged one is better for asthma and allergy sufferers

2, Brush On/Off and Speed Setting
The Magnesium has 2 speed settings but the brush is always on.
While the Touch has only 1 speed with brush On/Off switch.
According to user experience, the spinning brush is safe for laminate, vinyl, hardwood floors. But if you are afraid of the risk of scratching your hard floors with the non-stop spinning brush on Magnesium, then buy the Touch.

3, Included Tools
The Magnesium does NOT include any attachments for above floor cleaning, whereas the Touch comes with Cleaning Wand, Hose, Crevice Tool, Upholstery/Dusting Brush, Stair Tool and Accessories Bag.

4, Weight
This is another big difference. The Magnesium is about 9 pounds lighter. If you need to carry the vacuum up and down stairs to clean your house regularly, then this is a concern.
The Magnesium weighs approximately 7.7 lbs without cord whereas the Touch weighs 16.8 pounds without cord.

According to user reviews, the Touch picks up pet hair better than the Magnesium.
