My husband and I have been married for over 13 years now and through the years, we’ve gone through a few vacuums. The very first vacuum we purchased together was the name brand “no loss of suction vacuum” that was several hundred dollars! That vacuum lasted us about 8 or 9 years. When it came time to buy a new one, I did not have the several hundred dollars to spend, so I opted for the Shark Navigator Lift-Away Vacuum. Compared to using the other brand, the Shark Navigator was so much lighter and easier to maneuver in a small apartment. As apartment dwellers, we don’t have space to spare for huge vacuums!
As a mom, I always find myself vacuuming at least once a day! It never fails, our carpets and floors seem to get dirty fast! With that, I want a vacuum that will clean efficiently and not take up a ton of space.
Meet the Shark Rocket Powerhead!
At first glance, I was not impressed with the Shark Rocket Powerhead! However, I quickly realized I was only focusing on what I didn’t see instead of what the vacuum offers!
So what was I not impressed with? I did not like that the vacuum didn’t have on-board tools to clean other surfaces. The vacuum only cleaned floors! What’s the big deal?
As soon as I took a closer look at the vacuum, I realized I completely missed the mark on this one! Let me go into the benefits of the Shark Rocket Powerhead:
First, I love that it is only 9 pounds! I had another brand vacuum that was over 17 pounds! That monster vacuum was so difficult for me to maneuver and so heavy! Plus, it took up so much space that I couldn’t even keep it in our hall closet!
The vacuum has interchangeable brushrolls. I know what you’re thinking, it’s going to be a pain to stop vacuuming to change the brushrolls. Absolutely not! First, the vacuum has a little storage container on the side to store the brushroll that is not in use. Second, the brushrolls are super easy to switch out.
How To Change Out The Brushrolls:
Step 1: Open the lid
Step 2: On the left side, you will see a label that says “Pull.” Once you pull, you will then release the brushroll inside.
Step 3: Insert the brushroll you want to use.
As you can see, the bright yellow brushroll is for hard floors and the black brushroll is for carpets. The brushrolls are clearly labeled. It is easy to change controls as you vacuum between floors and carpets.
Have we talked about height? My husband and I are completely different heights, so why should our vacuum only cater to a one set height? The Shark Rocket Powerhead is adjustable! As you can see in the above picture, you can control how long you want the vacuum handle to be. You can use the shortest height for compact storage too!
The dust cup is located in the head of the vacuum and just as easy to snap out to empty and replace.
Once the lid is open, pull the handle up and out to empty.
Click the dust cup back in and snap the lid closed.
I am truly impressed with the Shark Rocket Powerhead! It is a no-fuss, easy to use vacuum! I don’t have time to fumble around with different accessories when I just want to vacuum the floors!
As for space, the Shark Rocket Powerhead is certainly compact and lightweight. Sometimes, I even have my son help me vacuum as he loves to help his mom!
