Did you know that headlights on vacuums date back to the late 1800s/early 1900s when homes that had electricity would often only have light sockets, so to vacuum one would have to unscrew a bulb and plug the vacuum into the socket. Anyway this vacuum has LED lights on the nozzle too

I usually just skulk around here and buy the occasional thing. But I bought one of these dual-brush babies a while back - at retail.
Lemme tell you: that soft brush at the front is revolutionary: It softly picks up the finest dust and the biggest chunks of cat food and whisks them toward the mama brush - which puts them away without blowing them somewhere else. I can clean dust right up to the baseboards because the soft brush deforms slightly when pushed up against a flat surface, and thus cleans in the little gap that a solid cylinder misses.
I’ve owned probably two dozen vacuums in the last 50 years. And this is - by far - the best.
Also: the mama brush has two speeds - slow and gentle for hard surfaces, and fast and aggressive for carpets. It’s great on cat hair.
@jrisken I agree. I actually bought the last shark vacuum sold by meh. It has the two rotors and it is a game changer! In addition to cleaning the floor (tile, carpet, and even our thick area rugs) the brushes are easy to remove and clean.
Same with the air filters: they are easily removed, and you can clean them with water and put them back instead of having to buy new ones.
Lastly, the light weight and small size of the vacuum is awesome. It makes it easy to pick up to vacuum spider webs off the ceiling and it also makes it really maneuverable.
Buy this vacuum. It will make your house 70% cleaner, and your wife will love you 140% more whenever you remind her that you bought her a shark vacuum from meh for your anniversary. Doing so effectively ends 30% of our arguments before they even start.
Shark makes my favorite non-canister/bagless vacuums in the Rocket series, and this is a Rocket with a bendy bit in the middle. I don’t think the bendy bit adds enough utility to justify the price increase at retail - I’ve never had any trouble getting the brush head under something tall enough to accommodate it even without it - but this is a pretty good deal regardless.
These are light, store small, have an actual powered brush head, and provide a lot of suction in a small package.
The only significant complaint I have about these is the capacity of the bin - if you’re doing more than about 1,000 square feet at a time, and/or if your floors are really dirty, expect to have to stop and empty the bin a couple times. Even that isn’t really a big deal though, as the bin comes out easily and has an internal cover to keep all the crap inside while you take it to the trash.
For folks with mobility issues who have trouble lifting or dragging around a canister vacuum, these are the best bang for the buck.
@RedOak It happens! Who among us hasn’t dreamed of a more efficient way to eat corn on the cob? While he may have failed rather catastrophically in that endeavor, there is a silver lining: If he orders one of these vacuums, he can let us know how well it picks up teeth.
I’m going to give it a shot - we have a long-rangey house with a small second story and scattered vacuum situations throughout, This sounds like what we need, instead of dragging the old Kenmore canister around. Besides, we need to get up to our national vacuum ownership average.
My in-laws have this vacuum and it has a few non-obvious design flaws: 1) it’s 10 lbs, but 8 are in the handle, and 2) it doesn’t stand on it’s own in vacuum mode. Both flaws make much less easy to use than you expect. It’s a workout to cover larger areas and you can’t easily pause to move stuff out of the way.
Problem with Shark vacuums?..they do not support parts suppliers or vacuum stores with parts or accessories or warranty service. In fact, you void your warranty if a vacuum store touches any shark vac. Everything has to go through Shark including repair.
I know that for fact as I am a Miele-Dyson-Riccar-Bissell dealer in the Midwest.
@fastharry That certainly is an issue unless it is so cheap you treat it as disposable. Of course then you contribute to the landfill problem. And, of course, who has room to keep the original box to send it back?
@Kidsandliz yep, that’s right…all it takes is 3 minutes of search to learn about how unserviceable they are. I have taken them apart…all little wring running everywhere, micro switches, relays, snap together plastic…Absolutely NOT designed with service (even changing a belt) in mind.
I am so happy I took the plunge with this vacuum. It’s so nice going over a spot once, rather than multiple times with my dyson cordless. It is very quiet, and the smooth turning of the swivel head is impressive. It has two settings for bare floors and carpet - when you put it on the carpet setting, hang on, this things has got some pull to it. I also like the fact you can easily access both rollers from the top of the head unit. I haven’t used the attachments yet, but I will try them soon. I love the long cord as I can almost vacuum my whole small house from one plug. With a small home also comes storage concerns. The fact that this folds up to store helps me immensely. My dyson will now be limited to handheld spot vacuum status where it belongs. I am very happy with this purchase.
I cannot believe that I am the only person who purchased one of these to post about it. Followup: I had a DIY home disaster that required a major cleanup. Had I only had my cordless dyson I would have been screwed. This baby, devoured up the entire mess in no time. I also had a chance to use most all of the attachments for this mess, which made my life easier.
I’m giving a BUY recommendation for future sales.
