Shark Rotator Powered Lift Away TruePet Review

If you love the idea of the Shark Rotator vacuum but need something that works better on tough pet hair, now you have options. Shark has recently introduced the Shark Rotator TruePet which incorporates all the powerful suction and features of their best-selling vacuum but tailors it specifically for pet owners.

Like the standard and professional Rotator Lift Aways, the next generation TruePet offers the same 3 in 1 versatility of an upright, canister and handheld vac all in one machine. However, this popular brand also incorporates other improvements into the design. First, you can change the height of the base for bare floors, hardwood and carpets using fingertip controls located on the handle. This is a big convenience.

Daily Use

As a “daily driver” and for regular use, since the Shark Rotator TruePet actually operates as three separate vacuums, it’s amazingly useful for many jobs, and you’ll find you’re using it much more often than you would a regular upright vacuum cleaner, even one of the best.

Unlike other models you can compare it to; one thing users really love about it is that the brush roll still spins when you’re using it as canister vac, so it has all the power of an upright without the weight.

One of the improvements users comment on in reviews are the fingertip controls located on the front of the handle. Shark gives you choices for thick carpets and area rugs, low pile carpet and hard floors just by pressing a button.

Though many a review comments on the impressive power of this model, what really sets it apart are the variety of attachments and tools included that will do anything you need, including removing sticky pet hair from your couch and drapes.

The Shark Rotator TruePet Powered Lift Away NV652 comes with 8 tools and accessories to make any vacuuming job easier. First, you get a pet power brush, something called a dusting genie, which is essentially a combination crevice and dusting tool, a dusting brush, an attachment for dusting hardwood floors with a washable microfiber pad, a pet upholstery tool, an accessory bag and a mini motorized brush that is amazing for getting pet hair off everything from your favorite chair, car seats or even your comforter and curtains.

Pet Hair & Allergies

It’s no secret that users rave about the ability of this machine to deal with pet hair in their reviews, but one of the most important features to have in a vacuum when you have multiple pets in the house is a decent HEPA filtration system, which is where many units fail.

Many vacuums come with a HEPA filter but the design itself allows dust, pollen, mold and pet dander to escape back into the air. The TruePet is designed with a sealed HEPA system so that won’t happen. 99.99% of the microscopic particles you suck up remain in the system until you empty the dirt container.

The filters on this vac are also washable, so you won’t need to buy new ones to keep it running in peak condition.

While there aren’t too many complaints about this next generation Shark vacuum cleaner, one review comments that even though the unit comes with an accessory bag, there is only room for 2 of the tools on board the machine itself. While it comes with so many great tools, it would be nice if they all fit on the machine.

Consumer Ratings

Overall in user reviews, the Powered TruePet gets a full 4.5 out of 5 stars, which is a truly great rating. Some of the features users rate really high are how easy it is to use and how powerful the suction is.
