Great Suction, Heavy to push around

We have been using this vacuum for the past 5 months, overall we find the cleaning fantastic, the suction is awesome and having the ability to switch between hard floor (Tiles) and carpet (Med pile) at a flick of a switch is very convenient. The "Lift Away" function is great for using the wand and attachments.
I would have given this unit 5 stars if it wasn't for a couple of negatives - 1. Pushing the vacuum around if quite heavy and it's even worse on carpet, I'm a big boy and I struggle with it some days. 2. The dust bin is way too small, we had new carpet laid in a 2 bedroom unit, I had to empty the unit 3 or 4 times, although once the carpet was clean it wasn't too bad.
Great Suction, Hard to Push. Show details

Very happy with purchase

I originally had a Dyson cordless but found it didn’t last long for the price. A friend recommended shark so we tried it out. Its suction is just as good as the Dyson. I use it on carpets and floorboards and it’s great on both.
Having a cord is a bit annoying but I feel the quality of the product mitigates the inconvenience.
The head of the vacuum is quite bulky so you need to switch to a hose attachment to get into corners and small spaces. Annoying but not a deal breaker. It is also quite noisy but again worth it for the clean you get.
I would purchase again. Show details

Great vac floors, a few flaws when using the wand

Great for vacuuming floors, has an adjustable bar to reduce suction if needed. My only complaints are that is it is top heavy (as I have found with other types of this vac) and the wand to clean ceilings could be longer. However, it is very powerful and as a vac it works very well. The head is a bit narrower than my Bissell which means it takes longer to clean, but manevuerability is very good. I would recommend this. Show details

I actually don’t mind vacuuming now

I actually don’t mind vacuuming now! It is amazing. Great functionality, lightweight, great suction. And best of all, no hair wrap around the power head! Photo is from first use in 3 rooms after already going through with my stick vacuum! I couldn’t believe how much it picked up Show details

wish i had never bought it

previously owned a shark for 10 years and loved it so when I needed to replace of course it was going to be a shark had less than a year and all the plastic parts on the head of the vacuum started to disintegrate. Suction is terrible on both carpet and hard floor. still, under warranty, I rang shark and sent pictures to be told it would cost me $80 dollars postage to new zealand really shark if your products start to disintegrate before a year you should look at how badly designed it is. Now of course I have a unuseable 600 dollars machine unless I spend 80 dollars for it maybe to happen again no thank you Show details

Best Vacuum I've ever used

Used on all floor types & even in our cars, this vacuum is seriously the best. Used a dyson for years & this leaves it for dead.
Been 6 months now, so I could give it a true review & it's seriously not missed a beat. Fantastic Vac. Show details

Best Vacuum by far

Purchased a Shark after owning an Electrolux and a Dyson and have never regretted this purchase. Performs perfectly on carpet and hard flooring. Vacuums as well as other leading brands but is lighter and easier to use. Powerful yet relatively quiet and the self cleaning brushroll is a great feature. Only negative would be the attached brush/nozzle is not of a very high quality and the bristles have not worn well but this is a small downside to what is an excellent product. Show details

Incredible and efficient

This machine is a beast and works way better than the Dyson we used to have. Get an extreme workout in a pet firendly house. Highly recommended on all floor types. Show details

100% truly recommend this vacuum!

Purchased on the 29/05/2021. I researched upright vacuums via my CHOICE membership and I decided on the Shark because of the additional features it offered as well as the availability in stores. Good Points: Easy to use. Great Suction and cleaning capability. Easy to disassemble. Easy to convert from Upright to a Hand-Held. Easy change from Hard floors to Carpet (slide of switch on the handle). Washable HEPA filter, I wash it in laundry detergent and when vacuuming you get a lovely smell. Availability of spare parts online via the Shark website. Bad Points: It makes me want to vacuum every day and the amount of Dirt/Dust it picks up is embarrassing LOL! 100% truly recommend this vacuum! Show details

It will work fantastically and yes, you can alter the suction, it has a suction control valve. It is absolutely brilliant, you won't regret it.
