    Another great value from Shark

    This is the 3rd Shark I have reviewed over the past few years. Additionally, I own or have reviewed Bissell, Sebo, and Kenmore and Hoover vacuums. The first thing I can say about the Shark Navigator Zero-M™ Lift-Away and all other types/brands is ignore most of the hype. This Shark Navigator (model ZU562) has a cleaning head that “actively removes hair buildup from the brush roll for continuous power.” Shark claims the design is their most advanced and prevents build up of hair on the brush head. In comparing it to my Apex Duo Clean there is a design difference. But not much and I question the significance. The point is, do not buy the ZU562 or any other vacuum based on the latest design hype. The fact is the basics of vacuums have remained unchanged and so has the importance of those basics. It comes down to power, accessories, usability/ maneuverability, quality and how well it cleans. After using the vacuum for a week, let’s look at those key areas for the ZU562 : Power – The power is good, but not as great as Shark Apex. It’s not a totally fair comparison because the Apex is nearly twice the price. The ZU562 is more powerful than a Bissell I just reviewed that was half the price. My test for power was totally unscientific. On cleaning a floor there is no way to tell the power but you can with the suction hose. I put the hose flat against a box to create suction and then pulled it slowly until it came loose. I compared it to the Shark Apex and a Bissell. The ZU562 felt about 70% as strong as the Shark Apex and significantly more power than the Bissell. There are two components to power: the electrical power of the motor and the ability to convert power into performance. The Shark ZU562 draws 8 amps, the Bissell draws 8 amps and the Shark Apex tops out at 11.3 amps. So why does the Bissell and Shark ZU562 draw the same amperage but there is a power/suction difference? It is has to do with how that power is applied. The listed amps, while does not giving a true impression of the overall power, it is an indicator. Obviously a unit that draws 13 amps is going to be more powerful than a 5-amp unit. However, amperage does not take into account how the efficient the motor is nor design factors that translate the power into performance . Hence , the Shark ZU562 appears to have more power than the Bissell I tested even though they appear to use the same amount of electricity. Usability/ maneuverability – When I first received a Shark Apex vacuum I was skeptical of how easy it would maneuver. However, I found the design was well balanced and moved well. This holds true for Shark Navigator Lift-Away ZU562 and to some extent, even better. They are pretty even but I think the ZU562 lighter weight makes it move even better. As with any of the Shark Lift-Away vacuums, the main canister separates from the head unit and assembly. This makes it easier to do stairs and areas where you do not the power head. However, the ZU562 does not power the head once it is separated from the canister (unlike the Apex.) Accessories – The ZU562 only comes with a crevice tool, a hair removal tool and a power brush. I would have like to see more tools like some of Shark’s more expensive vacuums but this will do the job for the most part. Quality – I was always skeptical of Shark vacuum quality. But after owning them, I can say they are built very well. There are not exactly in the range of a SEBO vacuum ( at $1200) but the Shark vacuums are significantly better than the Bissells and Hoovers of the world. As with most vacuums today, they are mostly plastic. But as you look closer, you start to see more plastic on the competition and the fit and finish is not as good as the Shark. Cleaning and performance – So the all important question of how it cleans. The ZU562 has a HEPA filter set up and it does a really good job - no dust blowing out of the unit as you clean. Too many manufacturers overlook making sure there is a sealed containment system with HEPA certification. Shark does a great job with this. For cleaning, it does a pretty good job. My floors are pretty clean so it is hard to judge completely. I did run the Bissell, Shark Apex and the Shark ZU562 slowly side by side down equal lengths of carpet. Because my carpets are so clean the Bissell had virtually nothing, the Shark ZU562 had some dust and the Shark Apex had a about 50% more. Not much to compare at all but there was a difference. If you are looking for the deepest clean, look to the Shark Apex at the expense of cost and weight. If you are looking for above average cleaning in lighter weight package, look to the ZU562. Conclusion – Shark just makes good products. The Shark Navigator Zero-M Lift-Away is a middle range vacuum in the Shark product line that is better than the competition in the same price range. If you can afford to go to the Duo Clean units, there is a difference in the deep cleaning, accessories and warranty. Otherwise, the Shark Navigator Zero-M Lift-Away is great value that you cannot go wrong with.

    Could be better...

    To start this is not our first Shark Vacuum so I would like to compare this one to that model which is the Shark AX951. The new ZU562 model seems to share a good amount of features with that model however has some major drawbacks not only to that model but other vacuums in general. In the box you get the typical Vacuum itself with a few different heads to help with cleaning other surfaces that are not on the ground. This is normal for most vacuums these days. Also this one comes with the manual but lacks a carrying bag like the AX951 came with. Setting this unit up takes all of a few minutes which is great! Now getting straight into the performance of the ZU562 it works fairly well but with several drawbacks. As soon I starting using the vacuum I noticed the head or beater bar of this vacuum is VERY loud. Its almost so bad you might think something was wrong. After doing the floors for a while I noticed that the cord seemed stuck, well I figured out the cord is 5 feet shorter than our Shark AX951. This length was just enough to require moving the cord one additional time through the house. Not a big deal but another drawback nonetheless. The actual suction of the ZU562 is very good and on par with our older Shark. The canister contained quite a bit of hair and dirt but it also seemed to have more fuzz from the carpet than our other Shark picks up which makes me wonder if the different style brush is so good its tearing the carpet up as well. After doing an area with lots of longer hair I flipped the vacuum over and still found a few strands of hair wrapped around the brush. Not a big deal since it was easily pulled off but not as the vacuum advertises. Using the unit without the head is very easy because it is very lightweight! Stairs or whatever are easily done with the air powered spinning brush. One thing I noticed while using the vacuum in its normal up write position is the head lacks any form of lighting. To me this was a another major flaw. Lastly, the connector on the hose that secures the hose to the handle (Keeps it out of the way) does not stay in the hole well at all. I find it falls out with the smallest bumps to the hose. Overall the unit works fine but the missing features or inadequate aspects of this vacuum are very disappointing to see from Shark since our last vacuum was of much better quality although at a higher price. Pros: - Plenty of suction/picks up almost everything - Lightweight Cons: - No "headlights" on head of vacuum - Short Cord - Head is VERY loud when brush is spinning, motor itself is quiet. - Hose clip which secures hose to handle barely works - Switch to turn vacuum on and off is not on handle. Requires you to bend slightly For the price maybe these features are not realistic but the features that are here should work better. Vacuum itself works great but comes at a cost of noise, no lighting on the vacuum, a shorter cord. I would recommend checking out some of Sharks slightly more expensive models that seem to fix all of the downfalls of this vacuum.

    Simple, Reliable, Shark

    Approximately 6 years ago my newly wedded wife and I went to a retail store that we received gift cards for with the goal of picking up a new vacuum that was going to last longer than our previous vacuum that seemed to be unusable after approximately a year. I was hard set on buying the premier "ball" vacuum that was nearly $500 because I figured that you get what you pay for. The wife talked me out of it, and we purchased their competitor, The Shark Navigator Pro at half the price and it did us very well for 6 years.Now we have a 3 year old that loved to imitate her mother's cooking and decided to pour all of our seasonings all over her play kitchen set in her carpeted room. Fighting through the scent of Chile Powder, Garlic, Hickory BBQ, Cocoa, and anything else that you could imagine coating the floor, our six year old vacuum pretty much put in its resignation. Every part of it became so coated with powder that parts stopped moving. We needed a new vacuum, and with how reliable our previous Shark was, we gladly welcomed another one. This new Shark picked up right where the old one left off. Simple assembly, familiar controls, great suction. I think my favorite update is that you don't have the big looping hose over the back of the vacuum and you no longer have to unhook that hose to use the handheld attachments. The handle doubles as the reaching element for the vacuum and actually detaches at two different points, giving you the choice of close reach or far. which is great as I have used this for both under cabinets and in cars, each of which benefited from the different reaches. Shark was also smart enough to put multiple attachments into one simple design. I.E. the narrow hose attachment that is good for crevices also has the brush attachment connected to it and it slides and secures in place at either the top or bottom, depending on whether it is needed. Downsides, this vacuum feels like a truck. It feels heavy, slow, and not meant for agility. Not necessarily bad things, but when compared to competitors, it won't win any races. Second, even for an experienced Shark user, some of the release buttons for the canister and other parts feel oddly placed. And finally, like some other vacuums, not all of the attachments have a place on the vacuum. I am one of those people that believe that everything needs its place. If an attachment doesn't fit on the vacuum, I need to find another place for it and it never seems to find a home and I need to search for it when I need it. All small things, but things that just make you wish they would correct for the next time I need a vacuum, which hopefully is at least another six years.

    The Little Vacuum That Could

    Posted

    Pros: light, maneuverable, great suction, hard floor/carpet setting, useful attachments Cons: no headlight, relatively short and stiff hose. I’ve inherited my family’s Kirby Generation 3 that we’ve had since the late 1980’s. It’s a great vacuum and modular, but can be a gorilla to steer. We changed our floors from carpet to hardwood, tile and area rugs, so we don’t have much carpet to vacuum and that’s where the Kirby really shines. It relies on forming a partial seal with the floor surface and that quite doesn’t happen with bare floors. We’ve been getting by with a Eureka Quickup. Without having to look it up, think: Dustbuster on a stick with a handle. Suffice it to say, the Kirby got relegated to vacuuming the car floors and mats in the garage (with hose attachment). Enter the Shark Navigator Lift-Away. The Shark is lightweight, nimble, maneuverable and modular. Suction is strong and a night and difference after using my dustbuster on a stick. I really like is the namesake feature of this little guy: Lift-Away. You can detach the main body from the brush roller assembly and tote it around like a canister vacuum of sorts. Pulling the handle out from the body to have a wand for hard to reach areas is pretty standard these days, but much like other vacuums I tried that has this feature, the hose is relatively short. and stiff so you can’t wander far from the vacuum as you can with canister vacuum or even a kirby with the hose attachment installed. Getting too far will case the vacuum to tip over. I think it’s best to tote the lightweight detached vacuum body when using the hose with attachments for extended use. Even still, for a quick changing modular vacuum, I’m willing to compromise that as a trade off. Suction is more than adequate for my two story house with bare floors. I also like that there’s a brush roller speed setting for carpets (increased the velocity). Normal speed is perfect for bare floors and smaller rugs like bath mats. For larger area rugs, the extra speed in the carpet setting really agitates the pile and coaxes dust and debris out more effectively. The other minor niggle I have with the Shark Navigator Lift-Away is the lack of a headlight. l don’t see many modern vacuums with a headlight and it’s a pity that they aren’t designed with them. It’s very useful in dark nooks and crannies. Other than that, I find the Shark Navigator an overall well designed product and and absolute joy to use

    Lightweight, powerful machine

    The first think you’ll notice about this vacuum is its light weight. That doesn’t mean it’s of little use. Quite the contrary, it packs a punch well above its weight class. It’s easy to maneuver around furniture, walls, etc. It’s also light enough to use on stairs while still having a power brush. The brush is designed to keep treads, string, and hair from getting wound around it. In the week that I’ve had it, it appears to work exactly as designed. This is a nice feature that keeps the brushes from getting worn down too and allows the dust to move into the bagless collection chamber. The vacuum comes with some useful accessories: upholstery brush, handheld roller, and edger. The Lift Away design allows you to leave the floor power brush and carry the canister in a way that can stand up better. Even if you leave the canister on the brush base, you can easily disconnect the hose to get cobwebs or other items up high. I don’t have any pets, so I can’t answer how well this would handle constant shedding. I’d be optimistic based on the no hair on caught on the roller. It did do a nice job picking up confetti from both carpet and bare floor. Shark has put some serious thought into usability with all their vacuums and it shows. They don’t short change the suction while focusing on the user, which is why you clean. I’m very happy with this vacuum and would think strongly about Shark for whenever the need arises in the future.

    Only One Flaw

    This vacuum does a fantastic job, with only one shortcoming. I will get to that later. This vacuum is solidly built and I can see it surviving the punishment it will take in this household. My wife is hard on vacuums, we go thru at least one a year no matter the quality nor price of the vacuum. After running it, you can see a difference over our previous vacuum. The previous vacuum, by another manufacturer, was said not to lose suction and advertised as a pet vacuum. Well, over the last year it has lost suction and collected enough hair that the brush is hampered by the strands. Based on the design, it supposedly will not happen with this vacuum. Time will tell, but you can almost see why it won't happen here. There is plenty of clearance and the brush seems like it will minimize the strand collection pretty well. The vacuum comes with all the attachments needed. You have all the crevices and brush attachments you expect from Shark and you would pay extra for with a few other manufacturers. They truly thought of almost everything. Almost. The collection bin is large and shows how much it picked up. The chamber is also detachable from the base so you can easily use this on stairs or with the attachments or to reach ceiling fans or blinds without the added weight of the motor in the arm you are extending. It is close to being a canister vacuum but has all the capabilities of a normal upright. What is the one flaw? The cord is shorter than most any other vacuum we have ever had. It is a shame that something as simple as a cord for a corded vacuum would be the only detraction. When I say the cord is short, where we can usually unplug a couple times thru the house, the cord is probably 2-3 feet shorter than the other vacuums we have had. It is not a major difference, just means moving the cord a few extra times in our house. If you can live with what seems like a short cord, this is an outstanding vac.

    Improved, Full of Features

    I had a vacuum of this same brand from several yeas ago and its still kickin'. I never thought vacuums could improve to a point where cleaning got easier, but they have. This vacuum boils down to two areas in which i thoroughly recommend this unit. First, As i said above, i have an older version of this vacuum , which i am very impressed with. This version is akin to the older model, but significantly improved. Unboxing and assembly was a breeze as every piece which needed assembling simply "clicked" into place. I assembled it from 10 pieces in less than 5 minutes. The other main reason in which i love this vacuum is because of its features. Light weight, bagless, pet hair removing attachments are all value adds to me. Another cool touch is that you can change the setting form hardwood to carpet, there also a "shift" that allow for a smoother ride if there is too much friction. I also have a dog that sheds super short hairs, so its not always easy to see. I ran it in our living room and found that i was missing a ton of hair that the attachments were able to grab from the corners of the trim. Very impressive performance. All in all this light weight feature full vacuum is worth the mid range price tag.

    Lighter And Tighter - A Solid Vacuum

    The Shark Navigator® Zero-M™ Lift-Away Speed™ Upright Vacuum has a name that is big on ®’s and ™’s but it doesn’t really do anything to radically advance vacuum technology. And while that’s snarky, it’s not really a bad thing. Shark made perfectly fine vacuums from the start and I think they have improved dramatically to take-on competitors. And now they make a very good vacuum. What wins with this vacuum is that it is designed primarily as an upright vacuum but it has a canister that can detach (Lift-Away!) from the base so that you can carry it around easily while you vacuum hard-to-reach places (stairs, heights). Shark has made these detachable canister vacuums for years, but this new model feels like the best implementation of the concept. The detachable base is not unique among brands but I think Shark gets it right. Note - a few years ago, Shark included a clumsy four-wheeled base for the detached canister (and it also held several unwieldy attachments) - you could park the detached canister on the alternate base and pull the vacuum around behind you - it was a disaster. I’m glad Shark let that go. Shark has given this model a sleeker profile and it is much lighter. The construction feels more secure (I have an older Shark that’s kind of floppy feeling) and this new Navigator® navigates easily without feeling excessively loose. And Shark has decided to provide a few wisely-designed attachments instead of a ton of arguably useless attachments. I feel like Shark decided to stay true to their brand here - this isn’t an imitation of a Dyson or a Bissell - this is a slightly better Shark that is a really solid vacuum.

    powerful suction and light

    The Navigator Zero M Lift is a powerful vacuum cleaner that combines the powerful suction that is suitable for both carpets and hard floors, and the light weight and easy maneuverability that you would expect from much more expensive brands like Dyson. the build quality is good, and the vacuum has 3 attachment that are sent in the package, one for hard floors, one for furniture, and one for small areas like stair steps and corners. its a bit noisier than than an older Shark model I have but the suction is definitely much much better. Shark have a new technology feature with this model which is the Zero-M which. they claimed that this tech would prevent the hair from getting stuck in the brush roll, and I have tested this feature and YES they delivered. I used to have to take my older Shark apart once a month at least to untie the hair from the brush roll, it used to be time consuming, and a dirty thing to do! not anymore. I am going to retire the Old Shark and start using this one full time. the only thing i did not love is the fact that this is a bigger size vacuum that cant be stored in a tiny space unless you take it apart. the size of the dirt bucket is decent and more than enough to clean the whole house if you do it once or twice a week. Under the dirt bucket there is a foam filer and a lint filter that need to be washed and cleaned once every 90 days per the instructions on the vacuum. the cord length is 25 feet which is more than enough. conclusion: the ZU562 is a very strong vacuum that is well built and I would recommend it to anyone who does want a good vacuum that would last for years without paying a fortune.

    I am so glad I tried this little red gem. After unboxing and a quick assembly ( no tools, just snap together) I was ready to tackle my carpeted stairs. A heavy machine is no pleasure to lug around especially up and down stairs. This SHARK is light, and with a 25-foot cord length, gets around my rooms easily and effortlessly. The vac motor is super powerful, and with the small pet hair brush attachment, made small work on my carpeted stairway. Greatest features: * super powerful motor, really spins the 5-inch beater bar upholstery nozzle * easily attached small nozzle and crevice tool (with built in brush) * I'm intrigued by the yellow beater bar that somehow defies getting wound with hair * easy to empty removable dirt canister (cup) * comfortable to push around and maneuver beater bar head * three (3) position on/off/beater-bar-brush motor switch easy to see and reach from top of motor canister * large rear wheels for transporting from room to room and for vacuuming large areas * fairly thin head gets under most pieces of furniture and easily between chair legs I read on Shark's website the handle has a built in static dissipation strip, so the machine won't zap me during dry, winter months Next, out to the car to give it a little T.L.Cleaning

    I've owned several Shark vacuums and I'm always impressed and ready to recommend this brand to anyone. I love that this vacuum let's you adjust the amount of suction used to maneuver easier or get a deeper clean. It's so simple to switch between hard floor and carpet, I feel like it cleaned my carpet and my tile just as well. I was amazed at the amount of pet hair this vacuum picked up in just a few minutes. This vacuum is light weight and so easy to snap together out of the box. This is a great option for someone wanting the additional tools for spot cleaning and upholstery or stairs as those items come included in the box. The small footprint of the vacuum makes it easy to store with the other cleaning items we have. The canister opens from two angles to completely empty which makes clean up a breeze. My favorite feature is the no hair wrap design. As someone with long hair, it's nice to not worry as much about tangles and poor performance. After vacuuming the apartment several times I have yet to see any hair wrapped.

    I’ve used several Shark vacuums so I was excited to try this one with the hopes that it would comparable to my favorite one that broke (due to human destruction sadly). This one works well and does the job. Strong suction picks up everything you see as well as everything you don’t (and didn’t know was there until you saw it in the canister). It’s extremely lightweight...which is great when you use the lift away option but I would have like the fully assembled weight to be a little heavier. Extra long cord is perfect. Canister is a decent size so you don’t feel like you are needing to dump it too often to complete your full home cleaning. I wish there were a better attachment storage system. It only has one spot to store one attachment on the vacuum. You’ll have to have a place to put the other attachments until you need to use them. The red color is fun...well, as fun as a vacuum can be lol. Overall it’s a great option to use. It’s not quite my fave Shark vac so my deduction of star is based on a bias I have for a specific product within the brand...and it not quite being as great as that one. But it is definitely worth trying out.

    My previous vacuum cleaner stopped working properly and so I was looking for a new vacuum cleaner in which hair buildup on the head would not be a problem and was easy to use. This vacuum cleaner actively removes hair buildup, which is great. It is small and not difficult to move between the basement and the main floor, which is also imperative to me. It was EXTREMELY easy to put together and was easy to start using. The first time I used it, it did smell a little bit. And even after using it there is a slight smell. My hope is that the smell will go away entirely after awhile. This vacuum cleaner also works well on both carpet and hardwood floors. Overall, it just works well and was easy to put together, which is very important to me. I have two small children in my house so I need to vacuum often. Another thing I really like is that it is bagless. Any time I buy a vacuum cleaner I make sure it is bagless because I cannot stand having to change bags. Thankfully, nowadays there is plenty of vacuum cleaners that are bagless. This is a good vacuum cleaner but nothing extraordinary. Basically, it just works and fits my needs.

    I've never owned a shark vacuum but heard good things so figured it was worth a try. This thing is priced well below some of the other top brand/models so how does it compare? Well the build is nice and sturdy and I had no issues putting it together. Everything just snaps together. Comes with a few extra extensions as well like most upright vacuums. I use this on hardwood floors and carpet. The only vacuum I can compare this to is my older upright Dyson. Below is a list of pros and cons based on comparison and usage. -Pros Nice build quality Has swivel Fluffed carpet better Smaller so lighter Was able to get under furniture another 4 inches Don't have to bend down as much to change floor settings Not as noisy Had no issue picking up pet hair -Cons Shorter cord Suction was a bit weaker Didn't pick up bigger items Smaller bin so needed to empty after each use Extra extensions don't attach to the side for storage Some long hair did get stuck around spinning brush In the end this is a nice sized vacuum. It does what its supposed to do and does it very well.

    Never owned a Shark before this one but heard good comments from family. Got this shortly before moving, our previous house had a few rooms with carpet, our new place is a tile and laminate mix. On all of the types of surfaces I have tried so far, this vacuum does a great job with it's suction power. I was never one to vacuum tile and laminate much, but while doing a vanity swap, sanding and other small home fixes, the lift-away mode has been very useful to clean as we go. In my space I got the say the cord length and extensions have been functional, I can typically get through a space without having to change outlets. The vacuum is a bit loud, echos in my space a bit currently while getting situated.It is a vacuum though, don't usually do any late night vacuuming sessions while the kids are sleeping so it doesn't bother me. Overall this product has been great with my experience, no serious drawbacks. I just have to stow away some of the attachments because I don't know if they can all be attached to the vacuum. Benefit of that is it's very functional!

    This is a lightweight upright powerful vacuum for both carpet and wooden floors. The vacuum comes with two option mode controlled by a switch to change between floor mode or carpet mode. It has great suction and easy to navigate and maneuver. Setup right out of the box was a breeze. The Lift-Away mode is awesome. You can separate the main canister and carry it as you are vacuuming area like stairs or places you can't carry the entire vacuum. The dust container is pretty good size and doesn't need to be emptied very often. The brush is designed to prevent the hair, etc. from getting wrapped, which is pretty neat feature. It comes with all the necessary attachments. It is loud, but so are every other vacuum unit. The powerful motor does pick up much better. The length of the cord was perfect for me. I didn't had to keep changing my plug outlet. I never had a Shark vacuum and now I can't recommend enough to give this a chance when looking for any big name branded vacuum.

    So I've been testing out the Shark Navigator Lift-Away ZU562 vacuum over the last few days and must say that Shark continues to amaze me. The vacuum took all of 2 minutes to put together. Everything basically snaps and connects into place. Inside the package was the motorized floor nozzle, the vacuum pod, the wand, and the handle/hose attachment. All 4 pieces snapped together so seamlessly. Included in the box was also the attachment pieces for upholstery cleaning for like pet hair. After everything was connected I powered up the vacuum and pleasantly surprised by the suction power of the vacuum and how easy it was to use. The other good this about this particular vacuum is the fact that carpet strings and hairs don't get caught on the roller under the vacuum. Everything else was self-explanatory and I'm glad that it has a huge canister, which means less emptying for me. All in all I would recommend this vacuum to anyone looking for a nice quality vacuum.

    This is my 2nd Shark vacuum and performs as well if not better than the first. I have a 2300 square foot house and it can take a while to vacuum each room. Having a vacuum that is lightweight is key to avoid fatigue when cleaning larger homes and that is one of this model's best features. And despite the light weight, it still has plenty of power for carpeted floors. This model was easy to navigate around corners and it was easy to empty the dust bin. The included attachments were fairly standard and will serve pretty much any purpose you need. Time will tell if this vacuum holds up over the years, but my older Shark is still running strong and I expect this one to last a good while. It seems solid and well built. I think it's a great buy at a modest price.

    At first, I thought that it might be too light to do a good job, but I found it works great and the adjustable head was a great design. I was able to get into places that my other vacuums couldn’t reach. The hose / attachment setup is also handy and easy to use. The turbo upholstery attachment performed well and did an amazing job of picking up pet hair. The brushroll stops once the handle is put up, so it can stay in place while using the attachments without spinning on the floor. I would be comfortable with using this on hard floors as well, as the front is light and it floats on the surface. Don’t let the lightness fool you, this cleans very well and runs fairly quiet. Well done, Shark.

    The Shark Navigator Lift Away is an outstanding vacuum to have. It is a traditional upright bag less vacuum with a neat feature that you can lift it off it’s base so you can get to hard to reach spaces. I particularly like to use it to vacuum my car, I can have it plugged in with it’s long 25’ to the garage outlet and lift it off it’s base and place it in my car while I vacuum all the nooks and crannies. It is also rated for pet hair which means I can get all my dogs hairs out of the furniture with ease using the include power pet brush. It also has what Shark calls a Zero-M cleaner head where it actively removes hair from wrapping up the brush. They also include a dust crevice tool and a hair removal multi-tool.
