Shark Vacuums

Compare Dyson Animal DC41 vs. Shark Rotator NV500

Bottom Line: The Shark Vacuums when compared to Dyson does not cost over $600. You will pay 1/3 less the cost to purchase a Shark Vacuum vs. a Dyson model.

Shark Navigator Vacuums all contain the no loss of suction, sealed system and they are quite easy to steer just like the old Dyson, but the new Dyson Animal DC41 is quite comparable to the Shark Rotator Navigator Lift-Away vacuum with some distinguishing features.

Testing has proven that the new Shark Rotator NV500 deep cleans better than the $600 Dyson DC41.(ASTM F-608-11 embedded dirt removal test of shark NV500 v. Dyson DC41)

Most vacuums from the minute you turn them on begin to clog and lose suction. Plus they are so heavy and hard to steer. Dyson solved those problems with their no loss of suction and steering technology. But those solutions cost nearly $600.00.

Compare the Dyson to the Shark Rotator Lift Away:

  • Both give you a system that is completely sealed.
  • Both provide powerful pet hair cleanup
  • Plus their no loss of suction technology and
  • Swivel steering

But the new Shark Rotator Lift-Away gives you so much more .

Dyson DC41 vs Shark Rotator NV500

The new Rotator power head with enhanced easy to maneuver swivel steering has patented technology that deep cleans carpets even better than Dyson’s newest vacuum, the Animal DC41. Studies have proven this~

Why spend $600 on a Dyson when the Shark Rotator provides more versatility, for less than $200!

    Best vacuum I’ve ever had the pleasure of using!

    This review is from: Shark Rotator Professional Lift-Away (NV501) (Misc.)
    After reading reviews for the Dyson and Shark Rotator for weeks I went with the Rotator, more specifically the NV502 model found at Bed Bath & Beyond. It was a CINCH to assemble and I was able to use it not more than 5 minutes after opening the box. The suction on this thing is AMAZING, it practically propels itself when on the vacuum base. It’s cut my vacuuming time to 1/4 of the time it took with my commercial Royal vacuum! I also own a small cleaning service with a handful of weekly accounts and its made my accounts so much easier to clean, my clients are AMAZED by how much nastiness gets pulled from their carpets (as am I).

    So glad I read the review left by Michael Flux as he really did a thorough job explaining all the different models and accessories they include. I have yet to use the car cleaning kit but will soon.

    I suggest anyone looking to buy this vacuum to get it at Bed Bath & Beyond, for a couple reasons. One, you get more accessories with the NV502 (sold exclusively at BB&B). Two, should anything go wrong with the vac you can return it directly to the store and avoid any shipping hassles. Finally, three, this is one of the few higher priced items at BB&B that’s eligible for the 20% off discount coupons! Another plus, should you have a BB&B 20% off coupon that you’d received in the mail and is expired, you can still use it at any BB&B retail location, no matter how long ago it expired! This does not apply to emailed coupons, coupons with the 10or20% off discounts or the $5 off coupons. Only the regular 20% off coupons may be used after the expiration date. If you have any questions about an expired coupon just call your local BB&B before going and they’ll be happy to assist you (& no I don’t work there, I just love the store!).

    Good luck with whatever vac you decide to purchase and please leave a review so others can learn or benefit from your experience.

    Wow! I’ve been living in filth
    After purchasing this vacuum, I blindly assembled the pieces together and started vacuuming my apartment’s living room carpet floor. After just a minute, I looked down in the canister just to see if it was working because, like I said, I kind of blindly assembled it together. Wow…I saw a bin full of dust!! Gross!! I couldn’t believe my eyes…to the point where I almost thought maaaaybe the canister was previously used and that the dust came from the previous buyer. But of course, when the shock wore out, I realized that my place really was filthy and the Shark opened my eyes. I emptied the bin and started again in my bedroom…same result! This vacuum is great! I would highly recommend it to anyone looking to purchase a vacuum but who doesn’t want to spend a ridiculous amount of money for a fancy Dyson. Go Shark!

    This is a good vacuum,

    I had another shark which I liked but the hose cracked in several places and it had to go.
    I was considering a vacuum with a bag because I hate emptying these but the reviews were so good I decided to try the bagless again (I hate buying bags even more). I really like the fact that the top of the handle detaches so you can pop it off and pick up something that doesn’t come up off the floor that easily (like popcorn kernels that seem to fly out of my popper on to the floor)and get under the counter where the vacuum doesn’t reach that well. My old one had to have a piece that you took off the holder (which never really stayed on the holder–I was always picking it up off the floor) So this feature is a GREAT improvement.

    My only complaint with the sharks is that they need to be kept close like a shadow because if you pull on them they will topple over–like when using the lift away to pick up something and it is just a little too far (get ready
    for a bang on the butt). Otherwise a great little machine.
