Shark proudly are the only Vacuum brand with Powered Lift-Away technology. Lift-Away means that the main unit can be detached from the wand at the click of a button, turning your upright vacuum into a portable. Powered Lift Away delivers power directly to the brush roll head even in Lift Away mode. The direct power drives the brush roll to rotate, unlike other vacuums that rely on suction alone. This vacuum practically goes anywhere with handy onboard tools that offer extended reach, ideal for above the head cleaning, Dusting brush for tables, shelves and also the Pet Power brush, ideal for removing pet hairs from carpets and upholstery. Not forgetting Lift Away mode, bringing ease to usually troublesome stairs. And if that wasn't enough we also added the Dust-Away attachment, which picks up large debris and fine dust in one easy step. Certified by the British Allergy Foundation, this vacuum cleaner also features Shark's Anti-Allergen Complete Seal Technology, which captures and holds over 99.9%* of dust and allergens inside the vacuum and not back into the air you breathe.
