A Quick Comparison of The Top Shark Vacuum Models

One of the biggest hurdles clients face when choosing the ideal vacuum cleaner from the same brand is how to narrow down to a single model. This is not any different as far as Shark, one of the market’s most prominent vacuum cleaner manufacturers is concerned. A quick guide is a handy tool in making this comparison.

At the core of comparing different models of the same brand, is the need to identify and use similar parameters. This not only creates a level platform, it also allows you to make your decision faster by scheming through the guide.

Factors to use when making comparisons between different Shark vacuum models:

  • Distinguishing features
  • Portability
  • Cost

Distinguishing Features

The distinguishing features found in Shark vacuums will largely be dependent on the type of cleaner. In this category, there’s usually an option of upright, or canister. Upright models include all of the Navigator models, the Rotator models as well as the Rocket Ultralight models.

The filtration technology used is also critical when making your choice. Ideally, HEPA filtration is recommended for its efficiency in getting rid of allergens. This is a deal breaker for me since I am allergic to dust. If you would like other options for filtration purposes, you can always opt for the washable filters.

Models with HEPA filtration include all Navigator and Rotator models. Washable filters can be found on many of the Rocket vacuum models. Various tools and accessories also contribute to the distinguishing features. The Turbo Pet Tool found in the Navigator and Rotator models is an excellent feature that adds to the brand’s efficiency.


I marvel at brands that allow clients some flexibility, which is why I recommend Shark. With the option of portable vacuum cleaners, I settled for the cordless Rotator vacuum cleaner.


Having used a wide range of vacuums over the past decade, I like to think I know a thing or two about the cost of these handy cleaning appliances. As a general guide, there are three price categories: low-range, mid-range and high-end. Low-range vacuum cleaners are the most affordable, while high-end models are the most costly.

Some of the models in the low-range include Shark Navigator Professional Lift Away, Rocket and Rotator Pro Lift Away, all of which cost below $200. Mid-range cleaners typically cost between $200 and $400. These include Shark Rotator Powered and Lift Away model as well as the Shark Rocket Ultra Light cleaner.

While Shark is yet to develop a robot vacuum at the time this article was written, this venture would, undoubtedly, create a line-up of high end luxurious cleaning appliances. Presently, the average cost of a shark vacuum remains affordable for you if you are searching for a mid-range yet effective vacuum cleaner.

Using this quick guide as a comparison tool when shopping for any of Shark’s vacuum cleaners makes the whole process seamless. It is all about getting an appliance which meets your needs, within a flexible budget. Go ahead and select your choice model.
