by mitzermoo Perfect for our complex! Happy Housekeeper!
Our Bissell vac died for the last time. We needed a vac that was easy to maneuver, light weight and bagless. The lighting is a special feature! We have 8 buildings with 3 levels and vac/clean the halls every Friday. We use a large lined grocery cart to transport the vac and supplies. The vac and all attachments fit perfectly in the cart. The housekeeper loves the lift-off feature for the 2nd and 3rd floors - much lighter than the entire vac. She claims the suction is the best she has ever encountered and loves the effortless maneuverability. We have 48 apartments and she must clean all the turnovers (move-outs for move-ins) -- and this vac is absolutely perfect with the well thought-out attachments.that exceed all our expectations -- especially on "special areas." I live here, and once a month she does my apartment and my carpet looks the cleanest it ever has! If this vac lasts at least 3 years, I'll get a Shark from Penny's again --- we are so happy with this one-- and the easy on-line shopping at Pennys. (sorry the pics are sidways could not adjust to "portrait")

by Bellaboo This product is so easy to use
I love this Shark vacuum because it is so versatile in the ways it can be used so quickly and easily. I can clean under couches, cushions , up drapes and stairs with a simple change of hose head. It's light yet has great suction. Moves easily and gets right up to the floor boards so no dirty edges.

Rated 5 out of 5 by LAGrandma Best vacuum I ever owned
The Shark Rotator Professional Lift-away is the best vacuum I've ever owned. The suction is greater than any other I've used. I have hardwood floors and other vacuums would pick up some of the dirt but the beater bars always sent some of it flying out the rear of the vacuum at my feet creating more mess; the ones that were designed for bare floors didn't have good suction. This vacuum totally lives up to it's expectations. Recommend this to anyone without reservation!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Lillie Best vacuum I've ever had.
I was a bit frustrated with the initial assembly out of the box without a diagram or description to follow, however a call to the help line got me going quickly. It arrived on time and in good condition. The suction is terrific and the first use picked up a tremendous collection of dirt. Once figured out, the cup is easy to empty and generally comes out without intervention. There is a good tool set, two hepa washable filters and this model came with a rolling base that converts the machine to a "canister" type easily. It can also be hand-carried for cleaning furniture or stairs, making it a versatile system. A drawback is that the tool storage on the machine is not real secure so I find the implements can fall off too easily. As far as the vacuum function, it's the best power I've ever had. I can't yet comment on durability. The housing is all plastic and everything is a bit stiff and tight-fitting to the point that I am afraid I might break something by pulling too hard. The customer support person assured me that the housing is very tough and I need not worry.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Steve So far I like this vacuum cleaner
The Rotator Professional Lift-Away is a good choice for a homeowner who wants a one-model-does-it-all vacuum cleaner. It is light enough for a small or older woman to use without a struggle, the lift-away feature makes it adaptable to most tasks and it performs well under most conditions. This model came with tools to do most jobs.
The on/off switch is inconveniently placed, and I would have preferred a manual height adjustment. The different configurations are not intuitive; however, once you get the hang of it, it's easy enough to reconfigure.
Suction is good. Emptying the dust cup is easy and straight-forward.
All things considered, I found the Rotator Professional Lift-Away to be a very good choice in this price range.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Jane Difficult to push/pull
It does never lose suction. Therefore vacuum is very hard to move. It is essentially stuck to the floor and I do not have a carpet with high nap, Niether my husband or I are able to overcome this although the machine is perfect weight and size.
I could compensate for this if there was a height adjustment for pile, but this model does not have that.
