Shark Rocket Professional Lightweight Vacuum w/ Attachments
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 .

Man oh Man. I read the reviews and I was thinking. "Sure yeah right". This will just be the run of the mill vacuum. NOPE! The is the MERCEDES BENZ of vacuums! It's a cleaning luxury at its finest. Very lightweight --heavyduty vacuum. Its small but it packs a powerful POWERFUL punch. As I had a big bulk cheap Bissell. This vacuum made me see cleaning in a different light.. Its easy to push, not too loud and it picks up so much dirty even the cleanest of people will feel like they were living in filthy once you try this vac. I vacuum the WHOLE house last night and I was mad because I did not have anything else to vacuum. The canister had so much dirt in it. BLEEK!
I am hoping I can vacuum again today. TRUST ME-- GET IT!
I have two long haired cats and a daughter with long hair. I have hair everywhere and the Shark took care of that problem. My carpets look like new. Wow!
Very nice power easy to operate really easy to push makes it easy to clean your carpet or floors.

This vacuum cleaner is very nice. It is a workhorse around the house and a good one at that. Easy to assemble and does a good job at cleaning. I love the lights and that it swivels. I have pets and my house has never been cleaner. Also love that you can carry it around to do stairs, etc. I have hardwood floors and it cleans them perfectly. I highly recommend it.

I even posted on FB how much I love it and a friend bought one after she saw my post. I like the lights and especially the cracks & crevices attachment. I think I would argue about it being lightweight, but it's certainly not too heavy and is so easy to maneuver. Every single button is labeled so you know what to push to make it do everything it does. Emptying the canister is EZ PZ. My only complaints are that there's room for only 2 attachments for storage on the vacuum itself (it comes with 4), and that the hose could be a little longer for when you use an attachment. I have tumped over the vacuum a few times because you have to have it very close to where you're using it. With practice, I am sure I will learn how to keep that from happening. Oh, and I love the easy pay option also. It will surprise you how much dirt you are living with.
