Bissell 1650A

The Leader in Pet Hair Handling

The Bissell 1650A pet hair vacuum cleaner is a stellar option for pet hair removal. It’s an upright vacuum cleaner for multisurface cleaning with an innovative tangle-free brush roll that prevents hair wrap and is very easy-to-use. While many vacs use suction on one side of their brush rolls only, this one ensures edge-to-edge suction to maximize the pickup of pet hair, dust, and other debris. The suction is more than enough for handling pet hair easily. And for removing stubborn and embedded hair from carpets or delicate surfaces, the vacuum comes with a Pet TurboEraser Tool and a special 2-in-1 Pet Brush (rubber fingers and soft dusting brush). Also, the package includes the LED-Lit Crevice Tool that helps you spot hidden dirt quickly. Like a pet hair rake, it's rubberized and has a strong suction power to remove pet hair from all those nooks and crannies. All attachments can be easily disconnected from the body with the push of a single button to make pet cleanups a breeze. For a hands-free emptying, the vac boasts patented Cyclonic Pet Hair Spooling system that captures and separates hair from dirt spooling it together.

Shark NV752

Amazingly Versatile

One of the most important aspects of an upright vacuum cleaner is its versatility. Vacuums are made primarily for carpeted floors, but it is more than just carpeted floors that need to be cleaned. Other areas, such as furniture, curtains, hardwood floors, and other parts of a home can all benefit greatly from having a vacuum cleaner that is able to clean them. A vacuum with such versatility is simply a great addition to any home.

The Shark NV752 Rotator Powered Lift-Away TruePet Upright Vacuum is one such vacuum that offers a high degree of versatility. Thanks to its many attachments and modes, this vacuum is able to clean areas that many other vacuums can only dream of. One aspect of this vacuum that contributes to its high degree of versatility is its Powered Lift-Away feature. This allows the main canister of the vacuum to be removed from the upright body of the vacuum, and can be easily carried with you. This gives you the ability to easily clean areas that are harder to reach for a regular vacuum, such as stairs, underneath furniture, and upholstery. The included Under Appliance Wand also allows for cleaning underneath low-sitting appliances such as refrigerators and washing machines.

Review of Shark NV752 Rotator Powered Lift-Away TruePet Upright Vacuum

Powerful and Easy to Use

The high versatility of this vacuum is aided greatly by many of the additional features that are included. For instance, the Dynamic Swivel Steering allows for flexibility of the cleaning head of the main body, making it easy for you to turn the vacuum around corners or furniture. The fingertip controls allow for easy operation of the vacuum, giving you everything you need within easy reach of your fingers. Powerful LED lights are also included on the front of both the main body head and the Lift Away, allowing for easy cleaning in dark areas. There are even lights on the handle, giving you the ability to use the vacuum even in the dark.

The performance of this vacuum is also nothing to sneer at. The powerful 9.5 A motor gives plenty of power to both the brush and the suction capability, allowing for pet hair and dirt to be easily lifted from any surface. It is even well performing on hard floors, ensuring that all dirt and hair is suctioned into the vacuum instead of being scattered about. This is aided greatly by the Anti-Allergen Complete Seal Technology along with the HEPA filter, which ensures that all dirt and dust are swept into the vacuum, and preventing stray dust from being scattered into the air. With the powerful combination of these features along with its versatility, this vacuum should give anyone a powerful tool for cleaning their home.
