We just got done testing and reviewing the new lineup of Shark Vacuums for late 2018 early 2019 and so this video will summarize those results and give our picks for the best Shark vacuums. We will also conclude this video with a deep clean test of all these Sharks.
With the best overall I have to give it to the brand new Shark Apex with Zero M, It’s the most powerful Shark ever, and is almost certainly the most powerful bagless vacuum on the market. It has every bell and whistle that Shark offers including Duoclean which I should go ahead and say is our favorite feature as it can pick up just about anything from pet hair to extra large debris and is at the same time its one of the best vacuums for super fine debris, basically dusting the floors as it cleans. But the 2nd brush on the Duoclean head is there for carpet agitation where it has the same uncommonly good pickup ability as it does for hard floors as well as very good carpet deep cleaning performance.
We use Duocleans with our cleaning business, and I honestly think once you try a Shark with Duoclean you will probably never own another type of vacuum, and spoiler alert all of my favorite Shark vacuums in this video will have DuoClean.
But the new Shark Apex also has Zero M technology which reduces or even eliminates the cleaning of hair on the brushroll, our tests showed Zero M really does work and along with the upgrade to the wheels on the new Apex version, it makes the new Shark Apex with Zero M the best Shark on the market in our opinion. However its also the most expensive and the heaviest Shark at 17 lbs but the powered lift away feature where you can essentially use it like a stick vacuum mitigates the weight issue.
If weight is an issue you should try the next step down the Shark Powered lift away speed 800 series which is our # 2 pick for the premium Shark category, its lighter and cheaper, its not quite as powerful as the Apex but its still got a more power than you really need, It has duoclean and is a powered lift away but it does not come with the Zero M technology at this time.
So lets move on to the best budget vacuum, For the best budget vacuum I am including the old style navigator 300 series plus the new navigator with Zero M, also the Nv771 with Duoclean and the Nv200 series with Duoclean.
This one was easy since although I love the navigators, I love Duoclean more, and since they don’t have it, they are out, of the other 2 the clean winner is the Nv771 which I just got done reviewing and despite its cheap price it is extremely powerful with a much better build quality than the previous budget duoclean upright the Nv200 series. The main negative is that although it is a lift away, it is not a powered lift away meaning you cant use like a stick vacuum, like you can with the apex or the 800 series mentioned before. See our full review for all it has to offer but yeah the best budget vacuum is the Nv771.
Moving on to the Cordless vacuums,
So Shark has had the Ionflex out for a while which we have reviewed but the newcomers are the Ion F80 which is the new version of the Ionflex 2x which has two batteries and the Ion P50 which is a totally new cordless design, all of which have duoclean technology.
