Shark Rotator Powered Lift-Away Review: The Abilities are LIMITLESS!

This is a review post for The Shark Rotator Powered Lift Away, all opinions and thoughts stated are that of my own based on my experience with this product. 



When we first moved into our house, 5 years ago this month, the owner of the home had installed new carpets as a means to try to sell the house quicker. Although it sounded great at the time, and I am sure it beat the alternative {nasty old carpets}, the carpets that they did choose to install were definitely the lowest quality out there. We knew right away that this would be something that would have to go in the future. When? We weren't sure,  but we definitely didn't think that we would still be in our home with the same dreadful carpets as we are today. And so here we are, present day 2015, stuck with terrible quality carpets and even worse, reminded of this fact every time we look at them. Which is every day.

I blame it on having 3 babies in five years and completely losing track of time. Not to mention, we flipped every room in the house from top to bottom, and at the time we were more concerned with getting rid of the old versus the new. But this year is going to be our year. I am certain of it. I had been talking to Andrew about it since the beginning of January, and we had both made a mutual decision that we would have new carpets installed downstairs as well as the upstairs hallway before the year was over.

We were ready to take the plunge last month, earlier than we had anticipated {we truly are very antsy about getting this big project out of the way}, until something magical showed up on my door. Literally, it is as though a bright light came shining down on my doorstep and the angels were singing when I opened up the door to find The Shark Rotator Powered Lift Away just sitting there waiting for its home. A home that was in desperate need of saving, and carpet that had never understood the real definition of clean yet. I was astounded by the results, and I vacuum now more than I probably care to admit. Let me walk you through The Shark, step by step.




The PROS



Easy to Assemble

I am not one to follow instructions, and also not a handy person by any means, so when  The Shark Rotator Powered Lift Away arrived, I thought that I would have to wait until my husband came home before being able to put it into action. That is until I became so anxious and excited just by staring at this box sitting in my living room that I convinced myself I would be able to do it. I didn't have to open a single instruction manual, and it only took me about 5 minutes to put together, but I was able to put it together on my own, and better yet with ease.




Upright Mode with Advance Swivel Steering.


One of the things that surprised me the most when I turned the vacuum on was the immediate power. I felt like I was there to just guide The Shark Rotator Powered Lift Away, and it was doing all the work. There was no loss in suction while vacuuming, and it was so easy to maneuver around small corners as well as under couches. UNDER COUCHES! That gets an exclamation mark. Sure, it doesn't get completely underneath, but just enough to pick up this crumbs that the kids inevitably leave behind. And the heavy coffee tables that I no longer have to push to the side just to get right under the edges.

Powered Life-Away Mode

With just a push of a button, I am able to transform The Shark Rotator Powered Lift Away into a handheld machine that allows me to take it to hard to reach places including the ceilings, the stairs, and other corners that involve crowed spaces.



Hardwood Capability

Again, with a simple push of a button, I can change the power level to have the ability to clean my hardwoods throughout. And it works wonderful and picks up things that my old vacuums never could {most never even had the function}.

Complete Seal of the System

I never understood how the filter in our old vacuum was able to trap all the allergens and dust that I was vacuuming, and that's because it actually wasn't. With the The Shark Rotator Powered Lift Away, it is completely sealed and therefore hold over 99.9% of the dust that it picks up, leaving your air nice and clean especially those who own pets as well as those with allergies.

Pet Owners Customer Satisfaction


Being a pet owner myself, and one to a dog that sheds, I have to say that The Shark Rotator Powered Lift Away has definitely solved one of the biggest problems in our house: pet hair. It comes with pet upholstery tool that makes cleaning those couches and loveseats so much easier and efficient.




The CONS


My only complaint would be that it is heavier than most vacuums I have owned, but I have to say that I'm not sure that would constitute as a complaint seeing as how I believe it is because it is better made than any other vacuum I have ever owned. And better yet, they solved this problem by making the main body just a click away from being a hand-held device.

Rating


5/5 stars. I would recommend it to all my family and friends {in fact, I already have}.
My carpets look so good that we have even delayed getting new carpets for another 6 months.

Cost


At only $249, this is a price that simply cannot be beat. For the quality, the features, and the overall design, I cannot imagine spending a penny more for any other vacuum. And I have to say, after owning many vacuums that were middle-of-the road {and have all broken on me within 2 years}, I would definitely say spend the money on a good quality vacuum that will definitely make your carpets look cleaner than you have ever seen them before.

Invest in one. Gift one {or many}. Whatever you do, you have to try it out!
