Shark Rotator 3-in-1 Lift Away Vacuum w/8 Accessories
Love this vacuum so much!
When my package first arrived I opened it up immediately, got it together and started vacuuming. However I was slightly annoyed at first because it didn't seem to be getting up the dust/dirt like it was showing on the infomercials I have previously seen. Then I turned on the "Brush Roll" function and HOLY MOLY! So much dirt and dust every single day I vacuum. My house is about 90% Carpet (1800 sq ft home) which means lots of things getting trapped into the pile. This vacuum gets it all, I had no idea how 'dirty' my carpets were until I started using this vacuum.
It also works really well on my tile floors. I don't know why some people are having so much trouble with the wheel base (I like to call it R2 when I wheel it around). Mine seems to handle everything perfectly. This vacuum definitely isn't the lightest, but it isn't the heaviest I have ever owned. It is very easy to carry up and down the stairs, and even my three year old can maneuver it around.
I feel that this vacuum is best for people who suffer from allergies and need something that doesn't just shoot the dust out a vent/filter. It is also good for people who need a really good vacuum that gets the job done, but doesn't cost an arm and a leg.
At first the shark rotator was great but after some use the plastic began to break off. The hose is to short and the wand doesn't reach as high as I wanted it too. Overall I would not recommend this it works for awhile but then its disaster.
SHOULD HAVE WAITED!
I bought this when it was the TSV. Like another customer stated, I should have waited until I read the reviews on this vacuum. While I give it 5 stars for suction, it is the heaviest vacuum I have ever used in my life. I have a 2600 square foot house with hardwood floors as well as carpeting and vinyl flooring. It is not at all easy to maneuver and the hose is too stiff and too short to be of any practical use. It is relatively quiet, but just too darned heavy. I was sweating and my arms were sore when I was done cleaning my house. It does not easily move from the carpeting to the area rugs and as other have said, I literally had to lift it onto the area rugs in order to vacuum them. The wheeled canister converter is worthless and the vacuum keeps tipping over because it is so top heavy! I don't understand the reviews that claim it is lightweight. It is anything but lightweight. I can skip my workout with Leslie Sansone after I have cleaned my house using this vacuum! I only saved $20 purchasing this when it was the TSV. Oh, how I wish I had waited and read reviews first. I cannot imagine how I would have ever gotten this back in the box to return it, but I sure wish I had tried! DO NOT PURCHASE THIS VACUUM!!! IT NEEDS A LOT OF TWEAKING!!! My husband does love the lift-away feature for cleaning the cars, but that feature is not worth the $200+ price tag! How sad am I? Very, very sad!
Search Is Over!
I love it! Makes carpet look like new! Cleans like no other vacuum I've ever used!
RETURNING IT.......DO NOT BUY!
I got this in April 2013. I was excited at first because all I had was a $10 second hand vacuum. It worked really well and I got a lot of dirt and pet hair. The features were awkward and the hose is so short that unless you are picking something up directly ON the floor, it is unusable. I also got really tired of having it fall over forward, since the canister is so far forward. But I liked how it cleaned so I kept it. After less than a month, it started losing suction and there was dirt and pet hair on the outside of the vacuum. It has been downhill since then. Last straw was yesterday....only 3 months later. I tried to pick up some flies with the wand. After I turned off the vacuum, they came right back out of the wand! (Yes, I made sure that there was nothing blocking ANY airway and I had always cleaned it every time I used it!). That was without any attachments because it wouldn't even pick up a fly if I used any attachment. I am glad I kept my $10 vacuum......had no problem with picking up the flies! I called this morning and am fortunate that I can send it back. I will pay attention to the negative feedback as I search for another vacuum.......it won't be a Shark!
WHEW... was I surprised the first time I used this vacuum. We just had our rug professionally cleaned 2 weeks before our new vacuum arrived and I was so excited to use the vacuum, I decided to vacuum that same rug ...... and YOU would NOT believe the dirt it sucked up!! The canister was 3/4 full! I was so impressed! And I was also impressed on how light weight it was and all the attachments.... what can I say, except..... BUY ONE!!! You WON'T be disappointed!!!
Great suctioning power beats any sweeper I've ever had. Excellent price for all the attachment you get. You can't get a better sweeper.
The only vacuum you'll ever need!
I purchased this vacuum after a friend let me borrow hers. Let me tell you this was the best cleaning investment I ever made! My husband does the outside maintenance and I do the inside maintenance. I consider this my lawnmower! I am a fairly clean person, vacuuming regular because of two kids, two cats and a husband. I was amazed at the amount of DUST this vacuum cleaned up. I couldn't stop finding things to clean! I vacuumed the ceiling fans without the dust falling to the floor. I vacuumed the lamp shade without ripping it. It even cleaned up a sugar spill from my vinyl floor using the rotating brush! It easily moves from my carpet to vinyl to hardwood floors. Some reviews said it was heavy, but I've always had an upright so I didn't find it to be overly heavy. My kids, aged 8 and 4, can use it with little difficulty.
I searched other websites for this vacuum to find the best deal and QVC has it. The extra attachments for the car detailing come in handy for cleaning mini blinds, fans and those little grooves inside the window air conditioner.
You won't be disappointed if you are looking for an exceptional vacuum at a reasonable price.
I first used a shark vacuum at a house where there was dog hair all over the floor. I couldn't believe how the rug looked after using the vacuum. It was so unbelievable I had to order myself one.
OMG! What a difference it makes - it actually "pulls" and "fluffs" the carpet everytime I use it. I am still just in shock what a difference the Shark makes. I have told all of my family and friends about it. SHARK IS THE BOMB! :)
And the bonus is the attachments for car detailing - my hubby is going to stay busy!
When we got it we decided to test it, so i vacuumed a room with our Kirby , then my wife vacuumed the same room with the shark and it picked up TONS of pet hair from our dogs and dirt! I was shocked at how much more it picked up that the Kirby missed even with the pet attachment.
It's a fraction of the weight, easier to switch between carpet and tile flooring and lots easier to empty the canister. My wife asked why i did not get her one earlier :)
WOW what was expected did happen as the Shark rotator shipment packing and use was terrific. Not normal for products to do what they are sold to do unless u pay the big bucks. We are very happy.
Shark Rotator 3-1 vacuum
Ordered the Shark Rotator 3-1 vacuum on Friday and receive on Monday very fast. I have a dog that sheds real bad even when I brush him on a daily bases. I put the Shark together as soon as it arrived and I couldn't believe my eyes it made my carpet look like new and also vacuumed up all the pet hair. The Shark rotator 3-1 vacuum is a pet owners dream. I also have a $1800 vacuum that doesn't pick up as well as the Shark does. I would highly recommend the Shark to anyone that is on the fence. Thank you QVC for also having flex pay this also helped me in making my decision on this purchase.
