Glossary of Terms

Bagless Vacuum = All Shark Navigator vacuums are bagless. Bagless vacuums store dirt and dust in its onboard dust bin which is detachable. You do not need to purchase bags, just take the dust bin to your trash can, to empty it. Most bagless vacs require that you clean the filter from time to time.
Lift-Away Canister = Shark Navigator vacuums have a detachable canister on their uprights, so that you can vacuum stairs, and other hard to reach areas.
Built-in Headlights = The Shark NV501, NV400, and NV552 all have built-in headlights so that you can see dirt and dust as you are vacuuming and to avoid vacuuming objects you don’t want to vacuum up.
Canister Caddy = The Shark NV501 and NV552 “Rotator” Navigator vacuums have a canister caddy with wheels, making it different from other Shark models. This allows the Lift-away canister to act like a regular canister that follows you on your floors like a traditional canister vacuum on its wheels.
HEPA Filter = A HEPA filter is the best type of dirt filtration on a vacuum. This will remove the smallest particles of dirt, dust, and pet hair so that you don’t breathe in what you are vacuuming. This is especially important for those with allergies.
Complete Seal Technology = Shark vacuums have sealed systems to hold in dust, dirt, pet hair, allergens from escaping the vacuum.
Cyclonic = Shark’s system prevents dirt from clogging the filter, so that you have maximum suction at all times.
Extension Hose = A vacuum with an extension hose, allows you to vacuum not only the carpet or floor, but to vacuum upholstery, drapes, stairs, and walls.
Turbo Pet Tool = Many Shark vacuums include a mini turbo tool to vacuum upholstery, car seats, and other areas. This is especially useful for removing pet hair.
What is the difference between the Shark Navigator and the Rotator? = The main difference between these models is that the NV501 and NV552 Rotator includes a wheeled caddy to carry the canister around, while the Navigator has a detachable canister that is carried by hand. The Rotator also has built in LED headlights for seeing dirt and dust and under furniture.
