Shark Rotator Powered Lift-Away TruePet Upright Vacuum: Review

Features & Pros

Probably the best vacuum on the market for removing pet hair, but also allows you to use the vacuum as a regular vacuum

Has a TONNE of features and is extremely versatile

Can cover large areas of cleaning

Quite powerful and has strong suction

An upright vacuum with a detachable canister that comes with a TruePet Mini Motorized Brush and Pet Multi-Tool for pet hair removal

Has 4 different modes – upright mode, power lift away mode, above floor mode, and Pet Brush + Multi Tool mode

Has LED lights on the hand vac/nozzle

Has Advanced Swivel Steering

Has Anti-Allergen Complete Seal Technology + a HEPA filter,

Has Fingertip Controls to allow you to adjust the vacuum from hard floor to carpet mode, and allow you to switch the vacuum on and off easily

Comes in 2 colors – Plasma Blue, and Bordeaux

Vacuum weighs 15.4 lbs.

Vacuum cord length is 30 feet

Dust cup capacity is 1.5 dry quarts

Comes with these attachments – Hard Floor Hero for surface litter and stuck-on debris on bare floors, TruePet Mini Motorized Brush and Pet Multi-Tool for pet hair, Duster Crevice

 

Cons

The price is not cheap

For some people, 15.4 lbs is too heavy for them for a vacuum – but for a powerful vacuum, this weight is reasonable

The dust and hair collection canister could be slightly bigger

The dust and hair collection canister could be easier to remove – it’s kind of cumbersome to remove

The flexible vacuum hose could be slightly longer

 

Overall

Overall, this vacuum is worth every penny. It’s the best pet hair removal vacuum on the market, and it’s very versatile as a premium vacuum cleaner for everyday use as well.

The only reasons you wouldn’t get it if you have dogs is because of the cost or if you really want a smaller lightweight vacuum.

Performance and quality is generally good compared to other vacuums

Shark Navigator Freestyle Cordless Stick Vacuum (SV1106)

Features

A stick vac that is cordless 

Has swivel steering for easy manoeuvrability 

Dimensions are 45.5 inches (H) x 11.0 inches (W) x 9.0 inches (D)

Lightweight at around 7.5lbs

Has a rechargeable 10.8 V  Non-universal Nickel cadmium battery

Battery lasts roughly 10-15 minutes on carpet, and around 15-24 minutes on bare floor

Battery takes around 4 hours to charge

The vac can be used on both carpeted and bare floor surfaces

Works with a motorised brush and has a cleaning path of 10 inches wide

Volume of the dust container is 1.17 quarts

Power rating is 12.0 amps

Requires 14 watts

Has a 1 year limited warranty 

Comes with a crevice tool

 

Drawbacks

Might be better with a lithium ion battery instead of Nickel Cadmium

Battery doesn’t always hold charge, and over time, it can lose some of it’s charge and power

Because of the battery time, this vac isn’t as good for large areas or long duration cleaning

The suction on the vacuum is OK, but not among the strongest suction vacuums – it can struggle with pet hair

Durability/reliability of the vacuum can be a concern – some people have issues with parts breaking or the battery going dead.

Doesn’t come with a pet hair tool or any other useful tools apart from the crevice tool

 

Overall

The vacuum is affordable/comes at a good price, but there are some major drawbacks to it as well. Shark has much better corded options like the Shark Rotator Powered Lift Away TruePet Vac that seem more reliable, durable and perform much better with suction for general mess and pet hair

Shark® Rotator® Freestyle Pro Cordless Upright Vacuum (SV1112)

Features

An upright vac that is cordless

Can be used on either carpet or bare floors – works with a 2 speed brushroll

Has a 1 year limited warranty

 

Drawbacks

The dust container is bagless but is quite small at just over 1 quart

Because of the battery time, this vac isn’t as good for large areas or long duration cleaning

Some people find the parts and the battery on the vac to be unreliable over the short and long term

Doesn’t come with a motorised pet hair tool

 

Overall

Like the cordless Freestyle vac, the Rotator Freestyle is affordable/comes at a good price, but there are some major drawbacks to it as well. Shark has much better corded options like the Shark Rotator Powered Lift Away TruePet Vac that seem more reliable, durable and perform much better with suction for general mess and pet hair. The better models are a bit pricier

Drawbacks

Not a cheap vacuum

As an upright vacuum, it’s not lightweight – some people can find it heavy and hard to maneuver

Suction is very strong and can be less suitable for light rugs and carpets

 

Overall

Overall, it’s a pricy vacuum, but the suction, range of features and overall performance make it worth it as a high end vacuum you can use on hard and soft surfaces, and on larger areas. Two things to be aware of are to protect your purchase by reading the warranty conditions and return policy prior to buying. And second, to check the accessories and tools you get with the vacuum – as you may get different tools on Amazon compared to direct through Shark.

Overall

The price is affordable, and this vacuum is one of the better lightweight handhelds on the market with good suction and consistent performance. Remember this is a small area vacuum for quicker cleans. As far as handheld pet vacuums go, we would probably also look at the Bissell Pet Hair Eraser Lithium Ion Cordless Vacuum as another option

Runs with a 13 C Nickel cadmium battery – a lithium ion battery might be better

 

Overall

The price is affordable, but the vacuum battery life and durability of the vacuum are a concern. As far as handheld pet vacuums go, we would probably look at other options first like the Bissell Pet Hair Eraser Lithium Ion Cordless Vacuum

Overall

The price is affordable, and the vacuum is OK without being outstanding. Some people experience issues with the battery lasting anything more than a year – so you may need to buy a new battery annually. Remember this is a small area vacuum for quicker cleans. As far as handheld pet vacuums go, we would probably look at other options as well like the Bissell Pet Hair Eraser Lithium Ion Cordless Vacuum

Drawbacks

The dust container capacity is small

Overall

Drawbacks

The dust container is quite small at around .25 gallons or 0.91 quarts

Not a cheap vacuum

The vacuum doesn’t stand up on it’s own

Like all vacuums, sometimes you might struggle with long or thick hairs trapped in thicker carpet which might need to be dislodged first, but surface hairs usually aren’t an issue.

 

Overall

The vacuum is pricy – there’s no doubt about that. But, because of the power, range of features, overall performance and lack of major drawbacks, it is worth the money you pay for it. Like all vacuums, read the warranty conditions and return policy before buying to make sure you cover your money outlay.

Heavier and thicker pet hair can sometimes get trapped in the brushes

Slightly top heavy overall as a vac

Attachments can be cumbersome to change over

 

Overall

The vac is good, but with a few minor drawbacks for the price. Most people that buy it are happy with it as a light to medium duty corded vac with detachable hand vac capability. It’s better with smaller volume thin pet hair than heavier pet hair. You might look at something like the Shark Rotator Powered Lift Away TruePet Vac as an alternative option that gives you top performance for the price. With all vacs, make sure you check the warranty and return policy before buying to protect your purchase

Not a cheap vacuum

Run time could be longer – battery life could be improved 

Can struggle with larger amounts of pet hair

 

Overall

A pretty good value for money vacuum for both hard floors and carpet. Because of the battery life, it’s more for quick cleans and small spaces. The brush, filter and dust container can sometimes clog with larger volumes of thicker or longer pet hair. So, it’s worth it for light to medium duty cleans in small areas. Because it has electronics, a battery and a motor – read the return policy, and warranty conditions before you buy to protect your purchase.

Shark IONFlex DuoClean Cordless Ultra-Light Vacuum

Features

A cordless vac for general mess and pet hair as well

Converts to a handheld vac from an upright vac for both floor and ceiling cleaning

It has 2 speeds for both floor mode and carpet mode

It has a max speed, and also has an extend run time setting

Drawbacks

Dust container capacity could be bigger at 0.3 dry quarts

Run time could be better for the battery – lasts between 10 to 20 minutes

Because of the run time, the vacuum is more for smaller areas than larger areas

Not as good on thicker carpeting and for picking up pet hair as other vacuums – a corded vacuum might be better

Battery capacity and power can decrease over time

Vacuum is not cheap

 

Overall

Overall, the vacuum is good, but maybe not quite worth the money it is listed at. It’s best as a vacuum for bare floors and shorter carpets where it can pick up mess on the surface, rather than deep down within fibres. It’s also better for short cleans and small areas rather than extended cleans and big areas. Read the return policy and warranty conditions before buying to cover your money investment.
