Shark TruePet Vs. Shark DuoClean Upright Vacuum (Differences): Shark has very capable upright vacuums, matching Dyson vacuums in power. Both vacuums provide the suction and powered brushroll to clean carpets of dust, dirt and pet hair. Both are not lightweight vacuums, but heavy duty, high powered cleaning machines. All Shark uprights are Bagless, where you empty the dust bin into a trashcan, with some of the allergens getting into the air. Both models have a lift-away canister and have LED headlights.

The main differences between the Shark DuoClean NV803 and Shark TruePet NV752 are: The Shark Truepet has a superior motorized pet tool, while the DuoClean has an air powered tool. The NV803 has DuoClean brushrolls (one hard and one soft) for carpets and hard floors, the Truepet has a regular brushroll. The Truepet has a much larger dust bin. Both models come with different cleaning tools. Both models are close in price, with the Truepet being a little more expensive.

What makes Shark Unique- Main Differences: Shark vacuums use a Lift-Away system, where the vacuum can be lifted off the body. Traditional vacuums like Dyson use a wand +hose off the main body. Shark has LED headlights in most of its higher end uprights. The DuoClean system used on the NV803 and APEX models uses two brushrolls, one is a bristle brush to deep clean carpets, the other is a soft brushroll for larger particles and hard and hardwood floors.

Mini Motorized Pet Tool

Bottom Line: Both the Shark TruePet NV752 and Shark DuoClean NV803 are both capable vacuums. The Truepet is more focused on carpets and pets. It has a superior motorized pet tool, comes with an additional Pet Multi-Tool and comes with a 66% larger dust bin (less time to empty). The Duoclean is more designed for multi-floor use with its twin brushrolls. Choose the vacuum that is more suitable to your usage. The tools that come with each vacuum are different (see below).

Shark NV752 Cleaning Tools: Dusting crevice tool, Pet Multi-Tool, TruePet® Pet Tool (motorized), Hard Floor Hero™.

Shark NV803 Cleaning Tools: Pet Multi-Tool, Duster Crevice Tool, Pet Power Brush (turbo air driven), Under Appliance Wand, Accessory Bag.
