Default Which Shark vacuum do you have? Which one should I buy?(got one!)

I don't get how they have so many types of the same brand! Thinking about the Shark Navigator Lift Away.

I have the shark rocket and I like it a lot. I only have one rug so it’s mainly used on hard floors. Very maneuverable. I wouldn’t mind having the one you mentioned either.

Default Re: Which Shark vacuum do you have? Which one should I buy?

I've had the Shark Navigator Lift-Away Professional for two and a half years. It replaced my previous Shark.
One thing that would make me happier is if I had the better cord, the no-kink one. But it is a longer cord than my previous Shark, so I can *almost* reach every corner of my house from one electrical outlet.
I mostly use it on hard floors and mostly with the Lift-Away so I can just vacuum around clutter. But when I vacuum our bedroom rug it is very satisfying. I think lots of carpet would be fun. But removing hair from the brush isn't too easy - it's fine for me but if I actually used it a lot I'd prefer the one where you can take it out to clean.

Default Re: Which Shark vacuum do you have? Which one should I buy?

I should have said I have 1 cat and 1 dog. Mostly hardwood and tile, two room rugs and two sets of carpeted stairs and the bonus room is carpeted.

Anything will be better than the crappy vacuum I have!

Getting pet hair out of it or long girl hair?

I want it so I can just vacuum instead of sweep and I can get in corners better where the hair floats.

Default Re: Which Shark vacuum do you have? Which one should I buy?

I have the Shark Rotator Lift-Away Professional and really like it a lot. Before we moved into our current house, my MIL vacuumed the whole house with her vacuum, and then went over it again when our Shark came, and it picked up a whole canister of stuff that hers had left behind.

ETA: We have 2 dogs (one of whom sheds enough for 10 dogs) and a cat. It works great for pet hair.

My long hair. We have a dog and it seems good for that.

Good to know! And like I said, any vacuum will be better than my awful Eureka!
