Summary: I've had this vacuum for almost three years now, and it still works great! The suction is just as powerful as when I bought it. When the suction gets less it just means it's time to clean it out and clean the filters. The pet brush is great. We have one big dog and it works great.
Excerpt: This product is great! I have mainly hardware floors and small carpets in my house. My old dirt devil wasn't effective enough to pick up the human and dog I had. The new Shark has brought the beauty out of my carpet once again.
Pros: Easy To Empty, Easy to Use, Long Power Cord, Powerful/Good Suction
Summary: Vacuum works great but it would be nice if the 24" crevice tool that is on the box in both pictures and print were included with this vacuum cleaner. I contacted Shark customer service and was told the crevice tool does not come with this model. I was also told I could purchase one from Shark.
Summary: Mixed feelings. Had this two months and the beater brush quit working. Thought maybe the belt was broken so I checked that (removed the screws--they claim there were tabs you turn to inspect it, but there aren't), but it was fine.
Excerpt: This is the most powerful vacuum I have ever owned. It not only picks up everything, it pulls up the carpet so that it looks like new carpet each time I vacuum. It is light weight & has a very long cord, so I rarely need to unplug & replug. I love this vacuum.
Pros: Easy To Empty, Easy to Use, Efficient, Lightweight, Long Power Cord, Powerful/Good Suction
