These are great. I took the governor off mine so it cleans my house in 9 minutes. I clocked it at a constant 38mph. Remember to lift your feet if sitting in a chair or the couch. I’ve already lost one foot! Also, suction power is good. Took 4 people to pull my foot out of the intake. Nice unit
@bugger one more thing. Buy a bottle of Folex cleaner. It will remove blood for carpet, drapes, rugs, clothing and from massive blood splattering on your walls, ceiling, windows, dogs, bedding and neighbors. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!! God bless and fucking good damn luck!!! If you pray. Do it BEFORE opening the box.
This looks like an updated version of the one I bought about a year ago. I love mine . . . well worth the 99. That being said, it’s ability to map my 120-year-old house has been a challenge. So, Sharky just bounces around for a while while I walk the dog, and, voila, surface dirt disappears. You will still want a regular vac for deep cleaning, IMHO, but it is great for keeping things looking nice. Say, when you’re busy cooking for your mother-in-law and you notice the floor. Suddenly you do have four hands. How many times does the double duty work for you before you say, “99 dolla done did it?”
@syllable I also bought a refurb Shark from meh a little over a year ago. I am reasonably happy with it.
A plastic piece on the bottom that holds one of the drive wheels in place broke after the first year of regular use. I did a temp repair with Gorilla tape which seems to be holding, but I think I will have to fabricate a more permanent repair at some point. AFAICT, repair parts are not available from Shark.
On a serious note. I don’t have this model but the specs are decent on this unit. I have 2 similar units that I run 5 days a week. One on edge clean and the other is pattern cleaning. I have 3 large dogs and my vacs are FULL every time I run them. They don’t carry much capacity but they do help out. JMO. This one is a good buy for sure at this price. They did the Ye ‘Old $99 price point. They want to move these out quick at that price. Good luck to ya all.
