Shark Rocket Powerhead Review

One of the chores I dislike most around the house is vacuuming. Much like doing the dishes, it seems like it’s never ending. With three very hairy animals, two kids, and a husband, you can imagine how dirty a carpet and floors can really get. Our Shark Rocket Powerhead has come to our rescue.





In the past I have had the large bulky vacuums. They are great, but sometimes you need something lighter, especially with my health now. I really need something lighter to push and lighter to pick up. Shark definitely fits that bill. Even though it is lightweight, it still can do some heavy duty cleaning!




I am loving that it comes with two brush rolls. One for more deep cleaning and the other for more of a gentle touch like for the hard wood floors (oh how I miss hardwood floors).


I could be wrong (haha, that’s funny), but I don’t think I have ever had a vacuum with a light on the front of it. This doesn’t mean you should be vacuuming in the dark, but that you can really see what’s in front of the brush and make sure you clean it right.




The canister is so easy to pop out and dump. Just press a button with your foot and up it comes nice and slow then just pop it right back in when you are done. It really is that easy.


Another really cool feature is that that extra brush I was talking about, well it has it’s own container and fits right on the side.




Other features:


  • Hard-floor and deep carpet cleaning
  • Powerful vacuum suction power
  • Pop-up dust cup
  • 2 speed settings for optimized fast and slow brushroll spin
  • “Brushroll Garage” style brushroll access
  • Removable and rinsable brushrolls
  • 2 Interchangeable brushrolls: a deep cleaning All Surface brushroll and a Gentle Touch hard-floor brushroll
  • On-board brushroll storage holster
  • Multi-position telescoping wand
  • LED headlight
  • Swivel steering
  • 30’ Power Cord


If you don’t need a new vacuum right now, I would still go and check it out at the store as the Shark Rocket Powerhead would make for a great Christmas present!

  4. I love the fact that this vacuum clean is lightweight. The light on the front is rather neat, though... it helps to make sure you're getting everything. Though I have to say, I would be more tempted to use this in the evenings... when it's not as light out. Lol. I like the blue color, too. It's fun looking!

    ReplyDelete
  5. I love it is light!!! I have many back issues and the vacuum is so hard to move across floor when I can't move back. This is perfect if it picks up great, yet is easy to maneuver.

    ReplyDelete
  39. I am actually sitting here watching the Shark Rocket powerheard tv ad lol. I really want this vacuum. I really can't decide what my 'one' favorite thing about it is. My favorite thing is that it deep cleans the carpets and pet hair.... but I really love that it feel like one pound in hand and easily maneuvers around with just 'a flick of the wrist'. I also love that it has the hard wood brush roll because half my house is hard wood! I have had a dyson for ten years and it's been dying for like 4..... I have been pricing shark vacuum. I hate how bulky my dyson is. I would love to have this vacuum.

  69. I love that this vacuum cleaner has a canister rather than bag. I hate vacuum bags. It looks like it would be easier to use than my current vacuum cleaner that I have to order new hoses for due to them dry rotting within 5 years.

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  72. I love that this is a grab and go vacuum that doesn't look like it weighs a lot. My vacuum is from the 1980's and it is so hard for me to push. I like that this would also vacuum under the beds, etc. Great review. I really need a new vacuum one of these days.

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  96. Sounds great! I like the Pop-up dust cup feature!

    ReplyDelete
  97. I love that it can do both carpet and hard flooring (tile, wood). We redid our floors and now only have one room with carpet and my current vacuum does not have a means of doing hard floors. Plus, my current is bulky and heavy; much too unwieldy to have kids help with that chore.

  121. love that is has a long cord and does both carpet and tile floor!

    ReplyDelete
  122. I like that it has a long cord...30 ft is pretty awesome! I like that the light is bright in order to find hidden legos and such BEFORE they get suckered up. And the best part is the swivel feature so you dont have to push the vac so hard with your own weight to a different angle. For me the lightweight design means less back pain.
