Shark Rocket Professional Lightweight Vacuum w/ Attachments
I really love this vacuum. I didn't give it 5 stars because not all of the attachments fit on the unit. You have to store 2 of them in your closet. Also, the extension hose isn't very stretchy. All in all it is nice vacuum and quite lightweight. I love the maneuverability of the power head. I would repurchase it.
Best Vacuum Ever
I have finally found a vacuum that does what it says. I have had this for about a month now and am so pleased with it's results. I have a lab that shreds everywhere! This picks up all the dog hair and more. My old vacuum left a streak of hair on the carpet and I would have to vacuum about three times in each room to pick up everything and continually empty the cup. Not with this Shark. It picks up everything the first time and keeps it's suction. The real test was on my microfiber sofa. The old vacuum would not pick up the dog hair, it actually embedded it in the fabric. The Shark sucked it all up, I did not have to go over it with a lint brush. Best decision I made was purchasing this.
I love this vacuum
I replaced my Kirby with this Shark, and I love it! My Kirby was great, but I couldn't vacuum the stairs and it was super heavy to carry up and down. The Shark is lightweight, and doesn't require any "stop motion" to use the wand for cracks and corners. The canister is awesome, and emptying after every use could not be easier. If you are thinking of (buying one) I would say don't wait, great value for the money!
Love my Shark Rocket!!
I am so glad I bought the Shark Rocket!!! I was on the fence for awhile trying to decide and I really wanted an upright vacuum. As soon as I got it home, it took 5 minutes to unpack and put together. I plugged it in and off I went! I love the self power, the suction and the easy cleaning of the canister. No bags!!! So happy with this purchase and I recommend it to everyone! Makes cleaning a breeze! If you are thinking about getting one.....do!!! You won't regret it!
Best vacuum ever used
I"ve bought a lot of vacuums over the years, but this one is the best. Gets dust/dog hair out of carpet and rugs I thought were clean.
Lightweight, maneuverable and no more fussing with bags. Very glad I bought.
Was pleasantly surprised and pleased that the advertising on this product was true!
Did my own test and vacuumed with my old vac,then went over it with the Rocket. Couldn't believe how much more dirt it got up and I can do carpet and just transfer to hard floors with the push of one button! Great product.
Bought the Shark Rocket to replace my Electrolux which was nearly twice as heavy. I am easily able to carry this up and down the stairs as well as sweep the stairs. Easy empty and small to store in a closet.
Only down sides for me is not all the attachments stay on board so I keep them in a closet, dirt cup fill quickly (which is good because it is doing it's job) so needs emptied often and hose does not reach very far, however this could just be due to what I was used to. Still don't like to vacuum but sure is less of a chore with my new Rocket.
I have to say, I don't "usually" write reviews, unless I am THAT IMPRESSED. And I am THAT impressed with this Shark Vacuum. I have 5 inside cats and if you have animals, you know how much cat hair gets everywhere. I keep a really clean house and vacuum all the time. When I got this one, I had just vacuumed that morning. I put this together (very easy might I add) and vacuumed again. WOW I didn't realize how much hair my other one WASN'T picking up. YIKES! So YES I do suggest this one :)
I LOVE the swivel head, it is light weight, but not as light as "some of you" said. I also love that it pulls itself (when not on the floor button).
If I have any "CONS" about this, I have to say two things. I wish the hose were a bit longer, but it still works better then my last one. And it doesn't work as well as a broom on your floors. It does pick up, but keep your broom handy lol..
You won't be sorry with this one, I know I am not! Might I add, I read all the reviews BEFORE I bought it, which is why I decided to try it. So THANK YOU to all who do write them, and I promise to start doing it more :)
I never seen such dirt come out of my carpets. I am amazed how well this vacuum works. I am very happy with it. The only thing I would change is to extend the expandable hose about 6 inches longer~ Otherwise its perfect. Great for pet hair!! You do have to clean it with ease after every use, or your vacuum may not work properly. Its a breeze to clean~ everything is very easy with the Rocket!!!! I do love mine!
As good as it said!
I've tried so many vacs over the years --- from Electrolux to Oreck --- and have been disappointed every time. While I am not expecting perfection, it would be nice if just once they had under-promised and over-delivered --- so this one was a big surprise. It really is as good as they said it would be --- light weight, easy to manipulate, lots of power. My only complaint would be that it needs to be emptied really often --- but maybe it;s because it is picking up more dirt than I imagined I had!
I have a Shark Navagator and LOVE it! Today my Rocket came and..... It's ok. Really Shark, who makes a vacuum that doesn't stand by itself? I have dropped it 3 times so that is really going to be hard to get use to. I wouldn't call it light weight. The top is very heavy and the bottom so light it kind of goes where it wants. I'm keeping it because I can't afford to lose the s/h money to send it back. One other thing... the wand to go under the stove and frig... doesn't go under mine. But it does go under the bed really well.
LOVE IT !!!!
Being using this since I got . I will have to say I was shocked at the lightness of the Vacuum .. for the way it works . I have had no problems with it at all .I live a dusty area too .So it's been very easy to use and works I mean works too .
