Note:  Shark Rotator NV500 Series Differs from the NV350 Series Compare Shark NV350 vs Rotator NV500

2nd Step: Compare the NV500 Series below. The Shark NV500 series differs from the NV400 series….

Background: Shark expanded upon their Navigator NV350 series by introducing the NV500 Rotator Series. The versatile Rotator is like having 3 incredible vacuums in one:

  • A powerful upright with enhanced swivel steering compared to the NV350 and better maneuverability around furniture and tight corners.
  • A lift away for super lightweight and portable cleaning that tackles the toughest jobs where other vacuums just can’t go
  • And with the optional caddy, now you can put the lift-away on wheels, for even greater versatility.

There is actually 4 different variations within the Shark NV500 Series: NV500, NV501, NV502 and NV503. In all 4 variants the actual vacuum is the same but the difference is held within the accessories.

Shark Canister Caddy:
Shark Canister CaddyIf you are interested in the caddy for the best deal, focus on models: NV501 & NV502….If you want to subject yourself to the shipping charges ($49.00 & home delivery) and the free steam mop: focus on the Official Shark Website but you have to request the canister caddy as well as the Dust Eliminator Kit. If you do not request or insist upon these features at the time of ordering…….you will be missing out.

Note: If your shark vacuum cleaner did not come with the extended crevice tool try the following:
Take your discarded paper towel cardboard rolls (12”) or your discarded Christmas wrapping paper dowel (24”) and reinforce the cardboard with either packaging tape or duct tape. Attach the cardboard to your Shark extension wand…. You might also want to cut a “V” at one end for better suction before applying the reinforcement tape. This will provide the extension reach that your are after.

Personal Recommendation:
Go with Bed Bath & Beyond….they have the caddy canister, 18 “ flexible crevice tool but they also include the Car detail kit. Most Sunday Papers will give you a coupon for 50% off on an item or at least a 20% coupon…well worth the purchase.
