Whilst Shark has newer upright vacuum’s on the market, when looking for the best Shark pet hair vacuum, it is hard to beat this original full sized Powered Lift-Away.


This Shark vacuum is perfect for all floor types including carpets, wood floors, vinyl and tile.  The controls on the handle make it super simple to switch from hard floor to carpet mode, which makes it a great choice if you are looking for a vacuum for both hardwood floors and carpet.


The TruePet motorized brush bar and Pet-Multi Tool gives your home a deep clean with minimal effort from the user


The suction on this vacuum is fantastic.  For the price you will be impressed.  And it is so easy to maneuver with the dynamic swivel steering.  It is also simple to change from an upright to a canister vacuum.



You will also love the long reach hose (with the cord its 30 feet) which is usually only found on canister type vacuums.  This makes it so easy to clean under furniture or reach up high and other hard to reach places. 


The vacuum probably is a little on the heavy side at 15.5 pounds, however being able to remove the canister helps with this downfall. 


Let’s look at it’s features:
