I have been wanting to try out a Shark vacuum for years but I just couldn’t get myself to spend that much money on a vacuum! What was I thinking? The Shark Rocket Powerhead was love at first sight! As soon as I opened the box I was in heaven. If you have a lot of carpet I probably would look for a different vacuum. I love this for my hardwood but wasn’t impressed when it came to my carpeted areas.
It is so light. It only weighs around 9 pounds not including the cord! Which makes it so much easier to take up and down the stairs. Our other vacuum is like carrying a small child up the stairs. I love that I can carry it easily with one hand too!
The suction is amazing. Both on hard floors and carpet. I despise sweeping so I love that the Shark can do both! It has two different types of brushrolls, one that is strictly for hard floors and one that can be used on both. It leaves NOTHING behind. The suction is seriously so awesome! You can choose to turn off the suction as well so that you can vacuum area rugs which I love! No more sucked up rugs when trying to vacuum them!
It is so easy. Nothing about this vacuum is hard work. There is a button to push that pops the dirt receptacle up and makes it so easy to clean it out. Although it does feel up pretty quickly but there are NO bags to change out. Yay! It is also SO simple to change out the brush roll. There are no belts to have to mess with, you just open it up and pull out the brushroll. Easy peasy!
The best part is how flexible it is. It reaches places that most vacuums can’t. Like under beds, under end tables and so much more. It goes around corners like a champ. I love that you don’t have to pick it up to make it go sideways, you just turn it and voila! You can go from vacuuming your carpet to hard floor without having to adjust anything. SCORE!
