Shark Rotator Powered Lift-Away TruePet Upright

by Oct 13, 2020Cleaning

Shark Rotator TruePet is specially designed for larger homes with all kinds of clutter, big and small. Thanks to heavy suction and Sharks original engine, the vacuum cleaner can clean everything from wooden floors to area rugs.

Since it is marketed to pet owners, it is Shark Lift-Away NV752 has specific features to clean animal hair from all surfaces, such as floors and furniture. In addition, it has HEPA filters to remove allergens and dust particles that accompany pet hair.

Since Lift-Away is one of the most expensive Shark vacuum cleaners out there, it has gained some interest from buyers.

Therefore, I decided to review it to check if it really works as promised. Keep reading the review to find out if the vacuum cleaner actually gives you clean floors or is just a hyped appliance.

Unpacking and setup: Instructions for tools could have been better

Overall, the vacuum cleaner is easy to assemble. But when it comes to attachments, the instructions are either too vague or inaccessible. The motorized brush is the only accessory for which you will find instructions in the manual.

Other than that, the manual does a poor job of explaining what other accessories do. In addition, the function and installation of some attachments are completely missing in the manual.

For most people who have used a Shark Rotator Powered Lift-Away TruePet, this should not be the big issue. However, if you are a beginner, you will need to watch a video tutorial online to set up this device.

The vacuum cleaner comes with a ‘quick start guide’, which is a breeze to follow. Again, the overall installation process is simple, but you may have some issues while putting the accessories on.

Design: Mixed opinions

In terms of design, the Shark Rotator Powered Lift-Away vacuum cleaner will either fit your needs well or be a nuisance. Unfortunately, there is no middle ground. Instead, choose the vacuum cleaner according to your special requirements. Let me explain how.

Overall, the design is quite impressive. The vacuum cleaner has a condition above the floor that allows you to remove the handle from the rod and clean the overlying surfaces. Besides the Lift-away mode lets you catch dirt from all areas without reducing engine power.

In addition, the vacuum cleaner is included fingertips, which makes it easy to turn it on and off with a single touch of a button. There are also plenty of attachments, including a motorized brush and a multi-pet tool.

To add, the vacuum is built so you can hang all the attachments on it. Thus, there is no need to create extra storage for the cleaning tools.

However, the design falls short in some respects. While it does a good job, it is brush roller is not completely durable. In addition, it is not self-cleaning, so you will have to clean it manually each time you use it.

Even worse, it is difficult to find a replacement in the market. The cord is also awkwardly placed, making it difficult for you to maneuver the vacuum through tight spaces. However, it’s a plus that the cord is 30 feet so you can take it with you almost anywhere.

The upper part of the appliance is quite heavy. Therefore, it causes problems when you try to push the vacuum cleaner under the furniture. When using the wand, the machine tends to tip over.

Another problem is the limited range. When trying to extend the hose over five feet, there is some resistance. In short, this is not the vacuum cleaner for cleaning your ceilings or over the kitchen tables.

Performance and suction: No complaints at all

Shark Vacuum works well on all surfaces. You can use it to clean the bare floor or pick up animal hair from the carpet and the hard floor. However, when cleaning a rug with small or low pile, I would suggest that you use the vacuum cleaner on the lowest setting.

Otherwise, it would also soak up the rug.

Although the suction is incredible, a slightly disappointing thing is the lack of a suction release valve. Since this valve is present on most Shark devices, even the lowest ones, I expected the Shark NV752 to have it too.

However, it lacks this functionality. Thus, you can not completely control the suction. I would suggest using the vacuum cleaner in the lowest settings, the hard floor setting when vacuuming carpets or doormats.

In addition, the powerhead has an excellent brush pattern that leaves the rugs more airy than ever. It’s a great feature for pet parents who are concerned that their blankets look frayed.

Together with floors and carpets, the vacuum cleaner does a fantastic job of cleaning the sofa and upholstery. If your puppy likes to sit on the couch, I would suggest using Shark Rotator’s motorized pet brush to make your couch hair free.

The motorized brush accessory is spectacular for cleaning animal hair from all surfaces. It picks up even the smallest hairs, thanks to the internal turbines and powerful suction.

With a well-designed brush design, the Shark Rotator easily cleans carpets in depth. In addition to cleaning the floors, the brush roller also gives them a polished finish.

Again, I must emphasize that the brush roller is not too reliable. It starts to fray with a few uses and you need to be careful with the maintenance if you want it to last long.

Filters: Pathogens are a thing of yesterday

Shark Rotator NV752 comes with anti-allergen complete sealing technology and a HEPA filter. It will remove even the smallest dust particles and allergens from your home.

While most low-end vacuum cleaners have only general cleaning filters, Shark Rotator has HEPA filters. These filters are designed to remove 99.99% dust from your home, making the air easier to breathe.

In addition, they also remove allergens that are present in your pet’s hair or in the dust on the soles of your shoes.

Another notable feature of the vacuum is the complete sealing technology. It does not allow the trapped allergens or dust to move out of the vacuum. Therefore, I would suggest emptying the container outside the home to release the allergens in the external environment.

Accessories: A Blessing

The Pet Power brush does a remarkable job of cleaning animal hair from your carpets, bare floors, upholstery and stairs. It removes the smallest animal hairs that you can not even spot with your naked eye.

If pet hair is a major concern in the house, consider getting this vacuum cleaner. After capturing the pet hair and the allergens or dandruff attached to them, the vacuum cleaner passes them through the 99.9% effective HEPA filtration system. As a result, no allergen is released back into the air.

By using your fingertips on the vacuum cleaner, you can easily switch to pet brush mode. It is much easier to clean pillows, upholstery and stairs in this condition than upright position.

In addition, the vacuum cleaner comes with a slitting tool that lets you get into hard-to-reach areas. In addition, it is suitable for cleaning animal hair from car seats and garden furniture.

You also get a pet power brush, which is ideal for light dusting if you are not in the mood to clean the house thoroughly. Although not a tool, the LED headlights on the vacuum cleaner are a great addition to the appliance.

You will be amazed at how much better you can see with the headlights. Often the dirt camouflages with the wooden floors and it is easy to miss it. But with the headlights on, you would not miss a single dust particle.

Price: Worth it if you want the best cleaning power

Shark Rotator is without a doubt on the more expensive side, but it is worth the investment if you want your home environment to be safe for allergy sufferers.

While most other vacuum cleaners only clean, this one actually leaves the air fresher and cleaner to breathe in. It’s something you do not get in a vacuum of $ 100.

Together with the many cleaning tools, extra features like the LED headlights make this vacuum cleaner worth the price.

But if you are just looking for a vacuum cleaner to keep the house clean, without worrying about animal hair or allergens, you can search for a cheaper Shark model.

Competition: Less expensive options

EUREKA RapidClean Pro lightweight cordless vacuum cleaner

If the Shark Rotator NV752 does not fit your budget, you can choose the Eureka RapidClean cordless vacuum cleaner. Since it is a wireless vacuum cleaner, it will not pose the design problems that the Rotator does. In addition, it runs for up to 40 minutes, which is sufficient for cleaning a moderately large home.

While the Rotator is a bit difficult to move under furniture due to its heavier top, RapidClean has a well-thought-out design. The dust cup is on the front, so the vacuum cleaner can lie completely flat under the bed or table.

In addition, it has LED headlights, just like the Shark Rotator. However, the vacuum cleaner is not well-balanced and can tip over if left unattended. In addition, there is no specialized pet brush.
