An ergonomic handle, HEPA filtration, a large-capacity dust cup and a pivoting head are some features of the Shark Rotator Professional Lift-Away NV500 vacuum. Other features include washable filters, a cleaning wand and headlights.
The Lift-Away vacuum’s ergonomic handle is made of rubber for better gripping and easier control. Because it holds more dirt, the extra-large capacity dust cup needs emptying less often. It is easier to empty because of top and bottom access. The "HEPA" in HEPA filtration stands for high-efficiency particulate arrestance. HEPA is an air filter that meets government requirements to remove 99.9 percent of dust, allergens and other particles. The vacuum’s washable filters are high quality and don’t need replacement. Headlights show hidden dirt in hard-to-reach areas.
The Lift-Away vacuum also has variable suction, which adjusts the amount of suction to make pushing and pulling the cleaner easier. Other features include an extra-long stretch hose to reach far-away spots, a motorized brush roll that rotates and agitates carpets to loosen deep dirt and a brush roll shutoff button to switch between cleaning carpet and cleaning bare floors.
Shark claims the vacuum is ultra-quiet to allow cleaning without disturbance and powerful enough to easily pick up pet hair from carpet and upholstery.
