Hot Sports Car of a Vacuum

These vacuum cleaners are light, quiet and super-fast. They are like hot sport cars!- extremely maneuverable, they swivel and pivot and get into the hardest  places. They pick up virtually everything and it seems like they almost vacuum on their own.


Shark Rotator-speed- maneuverable!

They are 2-in-1 vacuum cleaners with the “Powered Lift-Away” feature which allows you to transform the vacuum from an upright into a portable canister at just the  press of a button. The NV682 and NV683 models do come with a canister caddy which converts the classic upright into a canister vacuum. These models now become a 3-in-1 vacuum: upright, canister and handheld.

The LED lights are installed on the floor nozzle and they are super bright. The Brush roll ON/OFF switch is conveniently situated right under the thumb position on the handle.

This machine has a “sleek” head. It is solidly built and made with good materials. They are light, quiet, maneuverable, versatile, and it is ever so quick and easy to change their configuration.
