Navigator PRO is more expensive. The PRO models are bulkier and heavier machines. They come with an exclusive Dust-Away Hard Floor Attachment, which is ideal for hard-wood floors and it comes with a microfiber pad. To my knowledge, nobody in the industry has a hard floor attachment. This is an amazing cleaning system. This attachment converts Lift-Away into a Swiffer.

Navigator Lift-Away Deluxe NV360

Navigator Lift-Away Professional Special NV370
- NV370 features an extra-large capacity portable canister
- Weight is 13.7 pounds
- Equipped with a 30 foot long power cord.
- Probably the most essential attribute in Navigator NV370 is that it is powered by a very robust motor which makes it well-liked amongst its users.
- Another key feature is that the hose is now relocated from the side of the machine to the middle. This dramatically increases agitation and airflow.
- NV370 has a premium brush roll feature, which can be opened up completely to remove any buildup of dirt on the rollers. In comparison the Shark Navigator Pro has a standard brush roll that is not removable.
- The suction design is revolutionary and is developed to enable a higher air flow intake. The result is more particles are taken up at each pass of the cleaning head.
- Furthermore, the design and arrangement of the buttons and controls are straightforward.
The Shark Lift-Away has so many features to offer for the price, that it is a bargain. It is so user-friendly that you will applaud the engineers from Shark for that. The suction of those machines is so strong that the vacuum literally pulls itself forward. Simply WOW! Cat and dog hair does not stand a chance with this vacuum. This vacuum will literally change the way you feel about your pets shedding. This miracle machine is actually better than its infomercial demonstrates. There is nothing that works better if you want a clean house.
