Shark has designed a unique line of vacuum cleaners to solve the issue of the big heavy vacuum that may be hard to carry around the home. They only focus on vacuum cleaners, unlike other brands, so that they ensure they provide the best cleaning solution for your home. Their vacuum cleaners are light, compact, and easy to use. There are many types and models in their vacuum cleaner line. One notable vacuum cleaner is the Shark Navigator Lift-Away Deluxe NV360.
This vacuum is an upright, and it has a blue, grey, and clear plastic finish. There are also two other color choices: black, or purple. The canister is located in the bottom half of the machine. The canister lifts away from the main unit so that you can easily vacuum stairs, shelves, ceilings, and more.
Best Features of the Shark Navigator
There are some great features on the Shark Navigator, making it an all-purpose cleaner. The lift-away canister has a handle on top, so you can more easily carry it around the room. The entire vacuum is lightweight, and you can even lift it with one hand up into the air.
Besides being lightweight, you’ll find that this vacuum cleaner is extremely portable. The canister actually detaches from the main motor so that you can add attachments to the end and move it more easily around the room. If you’re not vacuuming floors, rugs, or carpets, you’ll want to remove the canister so you can add crevice tools or pet hair attachment tools, to enable you to vacuum furniture, shelves, the corners of the ceiling where cobwebs can accumulate, and even the tops of shelves and draperies.
The vacuum attachments that are included are the pet hair tool, brush tool, dusting brush, crevice tool, and long reach hose, which is patented for under-appliance vacuuming.
The Shark Navigator Lift-Away vacuum also has swivel steering, enabling it to more easily move around corners, without the vacuumer trying to force it. The base of the power head also has smooth gliding wheels, which adds to its maneuverability around the room, and also around furniture.
The Shark Navigator has two settings. One is for cleaning floors and one is for carpets and rugs. Cleaning carpets and rugs requires the more intense motorized brush roll, which scrubs in to remove dust, debris, and hair. But you’ll want to turn that off before cleaning hardwood floors, tiles, or other hard surfaces. The brush roll shutoff button makes it easy. It’s Shark’s equivalent to having a power head style of vacuum cleaner.
The Shark Navigator has a large debris canister, so you can get many days of vacuuming in before you need to go to the effort of detaching it from the main unit, and emptying the contents into the garbage. It’s great as you don’t need to purchase additional paper debris bags like with other types of vacuum cleaners. Not only are you saving money, but you’re lessening your impact on the environment by discarding less items in the trash can.
The dust cup also opens from the bottom for easier cleaning.
It’s simple to remove the debris canister from the bagless dust cup. Once it’s emptied, you can even give is a good rinse under the tap. Your debris canister will always look clean. Those older model vacuum cleaners used to be terrible to clean—the contents of the dust bags would get all over the interior, and the most vacuums don’t work when the lid is open—Shark really has provided a great solution that keeps your home, and even the vacuum cleaner clean!
Never Loses Suction Technology
The Shark Navigator Lift-Away is built with Shark’s patented “never loses suction technology”. This means that your vacuum will work as well on the tenth day as it did on the first day that you started vacuuming. In other words, if you don’t empty the debris canister after each vacuum, it doesn’t matter, as it has no effect on the suction power of the vacuum cleaner.
This vacuum operates with “cyclonic” technology that enables it to separate debris, and dirt from the air. The dirt will be kept from clogging up the filter, and suction power will remain strong over time.
HEPA Filter Technology
People who suffer allergies always loathe cleaning, as it can stir up dust, pet dander, and other microscopic particles that can’t be seen with the human eye. The Shark Navigator Lift-Away is built with HEPA filter technology. Besides a HEPA filter that captures minute particles, the anti-allergic complete seal technology within the vacuum cleaner will keep them inside the canister, and never spewed back out into the air that you breathe. The Shark promises to hold in 99.9% of dust and allergens. These will be of any particles that are larger than 0.3 microns.
More Details About the Shark Navigator
Many people today have issues with hands, and back, so they need to find a lightweight vacuum cleaner, rather than one of those heavy traditional vacuums that were so popular in the 60s to 90s. The Shark Navigator is lightweight, and the best solution to this problem.
The Shark Navigator Lift-Away does not have a retractable cord, since it is an upright style of vacuum.
While the HEPA filter is washable, it can also be replaced with item number XFF350.
The Navigator lift-away can vacuum heavier throw rugs, but lighter ones, such as bathroom rugs, can be tossed into the washing machine to clean.
Shark Navigator Pricing
Your favorite color choice of the Shark Navigator Lift-Away may depend on price. Black, purple, and blue are all priced differently. You can buy this vacuum in a price range of $180 to $230, but it’s still an affordable investment in household cleaning. The only real difference in pricing is in the color options, so you’ll have to decide if you want to pay twenty dollars more for purple. Still, many people will buy this vacuum for its sleek looks, and how it can easily tuck away into the corner of a closet.
The Shark Navigator Lift-Away has a long twenty-five foot power cord so you can vacuum an entire apartment without having to unplug and move the cord, and to at least do most of the house without needing to move it.
The Shark Navigator Lift-Away weighs 12.5 pounds, making it lighter than your average vacuum cleaner. The product has been made in China and it comes with a limited five year warranty. The vacuum cleaner measures 15 by 11.4 by 45.5 inches. It runs at a power of 1200 watts. It has a power cord, but not a rechargeable battery.

If you’ve been searching for an easy-to-use vacuum cleaner, but don’t want to purchase a handheld to clean furniture, the Shark Navigator Lift-Away vacuum cleaner may be the best solution for you. It provides superior suction power, enabling you to quickly clean your home so you can get back to what you really want to do.
