Shark Rotator Vacuum Cleaner Review


The Shark Rotator Professional Lift-Away Upright Vacuum is a vacuum cleaner with many features and attachments. This multi-use vacuum cleaner has features for pet owners and for cleaning both large and small spaces. For pet owners and those that need to clean a variety of spaces, this vacuum has a HEPA filter, detachable canister, a pet power brush, a pet upholstery tool, a dusting brush, a straight suction nozzle, and a 12” crevice tool. Other helpful features include Anti-Allergen Complete Seal Technology®, advanced swivel steering with LED headlights, and an XL-capacity 0.4-gallon dust cup. 

The Shark Rotator safely and gently cleans carpet and hard floors. The pet tools work for removing ground-in dirt and pet hair from carpets and upholstery. With bagless technology, time and energy are saved since there are no bags to buy or replace. For tight spaces, a crevice tool and a dusting brush can be attached to the vacuum. In addition, the 30 foot cord allows for cleaning large areas before changing outlets and the Lift-Away technology makes it easy to lift the canister and clean hard-to-reach areas.

Shark Rotator Vacuum - A Multi-Use Vacuum Cleaner

The Shark Rotator vacuum was created as a cleaning solution to help meet the needs of busy people around the world. With the multiple tools, functions, and technology, the Shark Rotator vacuum cleaner enables people to clean large and small areas as well as remove pet fur. 

The Shark Rotator powered lift away canister easily allows for portable cleaning of hard-to-reach areas such as stairs, furniture, and vehicles.  

The crevice tool and straight suction nozzle also help you clean those hard to reach spaces since they can fit and reach tiny and high places. With these tools you can clean vents, under appliances, ledges, and more.

Pet owners appreciate the Shark pet power brush and pet upholstery tool. The pet power brush quickly picks up animal fur and dirt as well as deep cleaning dander from a variety of surfaces. With the pet upholstery tool, the vacuum removes fur from furniture, drapes, and other soft surfaces. 

The Shark Rotator professional vacuum comes with an XL-capacity 0.4-gallon dust cup. With the large dust cup, you will save time since you won’t need to stop as often to empty a dust cup.

The swivel steering on the Shark Rotator is great for maneuvering around furniture and corners. There are even LED headlights that make finding and cleaning dirty areas even easier.

As another time saver, the long 30 foot cord allows you to vacuum larger areas before moving to another outlet. 

Personally, I really like how easy it is to move the Shark Rotator around our house. Without carrying the whole vacuum cleaner, I can use the canister to clean my stairs and car. With other vacuum cleaners, I found it very awkward, and dangerous even, to clean some of these spaces. 

With four animals and two kids in the house, cleaning our floors and furniture needs to be a quick and easy process since I do it so often. Shark Rotator meets my needs by providing a quick and easy solution for cleaning my house.

The only thing I do not like about this vacuum cleaner is that the filters need to be cleaned often. 


Shark Rotator Vacuum Recommendation

For people with busy lives looking for an easy cleaning solution, the Shark Rotator vacuum cleaner is worth the investment.

With the many tools and functions, you do not need to buy multiple cleaning appliances. This one vacuum cleaner can clean both carpet and hard floors as well as upholstery. The included accessories make it easy to access hard to reach spaces such as high-up air vents, as well as small nooks and crannies like the space between your washing machine and wall.

As long as the filters and tools are regularly cleaned, this vacuum will continue to quickly and easily remove dirt, pet fur, pet dander, and dust from a variety of surfaces. 

If you have high pile carpet or rugs, the vacuum can be harder to push on these surfaces. In order to help with this, there is a valve on the handle that allows you to decrease the suction. I recommend lowering the suction if the vacuum becomes harder to push on certain surfaces.

Also, if you are cleaning a lightweight floor mat, it helps to have it anchored either with your foot or a piece of furniture while you vacuum it. Otherwise, the suction from the vacuum is so strong that the fabric can become temporarily stuck in the vacuum.

The Shark Rotator Vacuum, an Easy Cleaning Solution for Busy People

If you are busy and don't have a lot of time to clean, the Shark Rotator Professional Lift-Away Upright Vacuum is a great solution. This multi-use vacuum cleaner makes cleaning quick and easy with the many features and included accessories. You can buy a Shark Rotator vacuum online from the Shark website, and at box-retailers and specialty stores.
