As a vacuum cleaner that performs well on a variety of different cleaning tasks, the Shark Powered Lift-Away True Pet NV680UKT is one of the best that you will find. It has strong suction for lifting the dirt right off the floor and it comes with a great assortment of tools to make it one of the more versatile models on the current market. In addition to being effective and versatile, this vacuum is also very efficient with its A energy rating.
The cleaning power of this machine is really impressive, and it is one of the few vacuums that really does well on both hard floors and carpets. It has brush rolls that help the suction to remove dirt and debris from deep in the carpet and it can be switched easily to the hard floor mode with a switch that is near the handle.
The handling of this unit is also very nice. The head of the vacuum pivots nice and easy and it can make it around corners with no problems. The one issue that some people might have is that this model is a bit on the heavy side. At about 6.6kg in full, it may be a bit of a problem for some people to carry this model around. However, when you are using it, the weight does not seem to be an issue.
Additionally, you have the lift away feature that takes the hassle out of getting under furniture. The user can lift the tank and the head from the unit and use it almost as if it is a small cylinder unit. This makes it great for getting in hard to reach spots and it makes it more convenient for working on stairs. A factor that also helps to make this lift-away feature nice is that it still uses the regular head for the vacuum and the brushes still function.
With the Shark lift-away feature and the ability to move between floor types, this vacuum is pretty versatile, but it goes even further than that. The NV680UKT comes with a great set of tools that can be applied to a wide-range of cleaning jobs. First, you have the powered pet tool that is specially designed for lifting stubborn pet hair. After that, you also have the Dust Away attachment for use on hard floors, the 2-in-1 crevice tool/dusting brush and an upholstery tool.
As far as keeping this machine in good shape and storage are concerned, the Shark Lift-Away True Pet does well in both departments. With cord storage and onboard storage for the tools, it is very easy to keep this vacuum neat and tidy. In addition to that, the dustbin is easy to remove and easy to replace, so emptying the bin should not be a problem.
