Details

The NEW Shark® Navigator Lift-Away® is the most versatile, portable, powerful and affordable upright you'll ever own. Clean faster, easier and better than ever before with Navigator's No Loss of Suction technology, Lightweight Detachable Canister, Swivel Steering, and Anti-Allergen Complete Seal Technology!

More deep cleaning power, more dust cup capacity, lighter and quieter - for less than half the cost of the leading brand!


With the Shark ® Navigator Lift-Away®, you'll enjoy:
  • Guaranteed No Loss of Suction Technology
  • Swivel Steering Makes it Easy to Maneuver
  • Unique Detachable Canister for Portable Cleaning Convenience
  • Anti-Allergen Complete Seal Technology Traps 99.99% of Dust Inside of Vacuum
  • Large Capacity, Bottom-Empty Dust Cup

Tips

  • Dusting brush bristles are gentle enough for dusting the most delicate of surfaces including wood or glass shelves yet firm enough to dust lamp shades and curtains. It's even good at getting ground in surface dirt from car mats.
  • Order a spare set of pre-motor filters from Sharkclean.com to replace in your vacuum for times when your other set of filters are drying.
  • Plug the power cord into a centrally located outlet. This extra-long power cord will reach a larger area without requiring you to change outlets as frequently.

Getting Started:
  • When releasing the canister from floor nozzle, depress button on bottom side, release and then lift from dustcup handle - there is no need to hold this button down.
  • If you do not use the handheld tools often for cleaning around your home, the accessory holder can be removed for even lighter operation.
  • To unwrap the cord from around the cord hooks in one easy step, rotate the top cord wrap in either direction to quickly release your cord.
  • Attach the cord to the cord hook just below the handle to keep the cord out of your way while vacuuming.
  • When additional reach is desired, place any of the tools on to the end of the handle with extension wand. If you need even longer reach, additional tubes are available for purchase at Sharkclean.com.

Using the Vacuum:
  • If you need to reduce suction to clean certain high pile carpets, area rugs or to clean delicate fabrics or curtains, adjust suction by turning the collar on the handle counterclockwise. Remember to close this to restore maximum suction power.
  • The power nozzle has been optimized for powerful cleaning on all floor surfaces so you can transition from hard floors to carpets with no height adjustment necessary. Simply change the position of the power control button to turn the brushroll on or off, depending on the surface you are cleaning.
  • To get the most from your Dust-Away hard floor attachment, make sure surface is completely dry before using. Do not use to clean wet or sticky messes. (Lift-Away Pro Only)

Maintaining the Vacuum:
  • For maximum suction and cleaning performance, empty the dustcup after each use.
  • Your Navigator upright is dependent upon clean filters to ensure maximum suction and performance. Remember to rinse your filters every 3 months. You can also tap loose dirt off filters between washings as needed.
  • To prolong the life of your Dust-Away micro-fiber pad, hang to dry after washing. (Lift-Away Pro Only)
  • If you suffer from allergies, wrap a plastic bag around the dustcup, hold tightly and depress bottom door button through bag before emptying to minimize exposure to dust and allergens.

Freaking Amazing

This is the best, most wonderful vacuum I’ve ever owed or used. I can’t believe I waited so long to buy one. As an upright, cleans my floors beautifully. As a canister, gets under all my furniture. With the attachments, it cleans my furniture & drapes. Easy to maneuver, easy to break apart & reassemble. This vacuum has revolutionized the way I clean & I’ve recommended it to EVERYONE!

Plush Carpet

I love my Shark vacuum but…the hose needs to be longer. Also it’s great for very short or matted down carpet but…we just built a house and the carpet we put in I’m not able to push my Shark vacuum. It definitely needs an adjustment for thicker more plush carpet. I’m going to have to buy another vacuum just for the carpet.

I’ve had this vacuum for about 5mo. and absolutely love it! I gave it only 4 stars because it does tip over easily when using the attachments, but that’s pretty minor in my world. I do have pets and it breezes through the pet hair. It’s quiet, lightweight and the canister is easy to empty. The Dust-away attachment is awesome.

LOVE MY SHARK!

I was very sad when my 4 year old Shark quit working. We are remodeling our bathroom and the KID that is doing the work used it to pick up the dust from the new drywall. Needless to say, it plugged up, over heated and shut down. I thought it was a goner. I was so MAD. I told him he needed to buy us a new one, then I fired him. A couple weeks later I got a feather up my butt and had to try and get this running. I blew out all the dust, and tore it apart leaving just the motor and no attachements. I w...more

I then ordered my new filters and cleaned the rest of the vacuum up. I now/still am a proud owner of a NV350 shark vacuum. I would buy 12 more if I had to! You will never regret your purchase if you buy this vacuum. Still love my Shark!!

I have to say I just purchased this and never write reviews. I have owned many vacuums in my years and when I put this baby together and vacuumed my first area rug I was amazed at all the dirt and dog hair and dander I had. It cleans my hardwood floors also. My rainbow never did this nice of a job. It is light weight which is awesome as my back is not the greatest. I like that I need not adjust for different type of carpets only the suction power.

Many brands tried - this is the Best! Love it!

Got mine over 5 yrs ago & haven’t had any problems. I just ordered 3rd set of filters (I rinse after every use, to reduce allergens & we have cats). Boy does it ever get the cat fur -- my husband is constantly amazed how much! It does tip easily & w/ canister in front, we have to remove it to get under some furniture. But we love how lightweight it is & the range of tools/accessories is really handy.

Spectacular vacuum

This is a wonderful vacuum cleaner does a great job, suction is A+. However, my handle with the stretch hose that snaps to extension wand will not stay snapped. I’ve noticed it wasn’t grabbing very well a few months back, then I decided to use a piece of tissue to stick underneath the button. While I removed the tissue after use, the button completely broke. It would be great if this button could be easily fixed without buying a whole new part.

This vacuum is great. Suction picks up everything. 5 star for performance. Cons are: Too heavy for an older person, Flexible hose does not stretch easily for dusting furniture. I have to hold the canister to keep it upright. Bare floor cleaner separates from canister for cleaning, the canister falls over since there is no handle to pull it with. Some improvements need to be made for better maneuvering. Maybe a disappearing handle (like luggage) to use when floor attachment is being used. More flexib...more

Shark Navigator NV350E

I’ve had my Shark for at least 5 years. It’s the best vacuum I’ve ever owned. I have just one complaint...the cord. It’s made of ”non-flexible” material. EVERY time I use it, the cord wraps around itself. I think I’d say it ”knots” up. I have to stop and untwist it because when it’s twisted it isn’t long enough to reach the rooms. Is there any thing that can be done to stop this problem? I thought of having a repair person put a new cord on it, but that’s not a good option fo...more

On a positive note, I had our carpets cleaned in Nov. 2014, and the man said he’d never seen a carpet that didn’t have cat hair embedded in it. We have one cat. I LOVE my Shark, thanks for such a terrific product.

Great Vacuum

I have had this since the end of January ’15 and really, really like it. We have stairs and my Thermax, while I really like it and it does a great job, it was getting to be hard for me to carry it up and down the stairs with or without the water canister in. With the NV370 I can just unfasten and lift the canister and go about vacuuming the stairs. My only complaint is getting the stair attachment loosened from the nozzle!

After carrying it downstairs into our basement, vacuuming that huge space, vacuuming the stairs, and bring it back up I can say I’m definitely glad I invested in this! It comes with a five year warranty so I’ll be covered if it malfunctions. I’m very happy with how it swiveled, the incredible suction power, how easy the attachments are to use, & how easy it was to empty!

Shark Navigator Lift-Away

I have been very happy with my vacuum, we use it on a daily basis. My only concern is the hose that runs into the power head, has broken twice. Duct tape can only go so far. Now I can’t even move the vacuum, please help and let me know where I can order a new hose for this vacuum. Unfortunately it is obviously not strong enough for the swivel. Please call me or email me to let me know where I can purchase this or if you can send it to me. Vacuum is about 2 years old.

The best

I watched my mom as a kid use just a few vacuum cleaners. The Electrolux then a rainbow but my favorite was the old filter queen. This beats them all especially the price. I bought mine in 2011 and have used it twice ever week. Only have had to replace the filters until just recently. That little hose on the head had cracks. 4$ later back as strong as ever.

Hoses Fail!

We have purchased several Sharks. Although they are a grteat vacuum as far as suction the hoses do not last. They split after no more than 3 years and you are forced to purchase new. As a matter of fact I am online now ordering new hoses. Oddley enough I also bought a new navigator at Kohls this morning because I did not realize (my own fault) I could do that. Either way between Kohls cash, discounts etc it was still worth it to purchase another. I would give a 5 if this did not happen.

Ms.

I just purchased the Shark Navigator Lift-Away NV360. I really like this product because it does a great job of cleaning my carpet. I had a Kenmore prior which was extremely heavy! I thought even though it was heavy it was doing a good job of cleaning, but it wasn’t until I used the Shark that I realized all this time it was not. The reason I gave 4 stars instead of 5 is because it is REALLY noisy, despite what you’re advertising.

So just wanted to say that I never thought I would be writing a ”secret” admirer letter to a vacuum company about a specific vacuum. First of all I finally know how to spell the word after looking through your website...I always though it was two ”cc” on top of the two ”uu.” Second after being in the housekeeping business with my mom for a few years now when someone yells, ”SHARK!” I think of the vacuum and not the giant sea creature. Third we have had this specific model NV350 (only in white...not sure if this specifies the color, too) throughout most of the business and it has seen hundreds of carpets, tiles, wood, stairs, hair, crumbs, dust, food, candy, and bugs (thank you for the extension because I am not going to physically remove any of that) just to name a few. This one beast (or Shark) of a vacuum is simply made with some power magic because ours probably does not resemble the original vacuum as much anymore-no seriously it looks like the guys in Office Space took it outside and went at it-but the suction power is still strong and it continues to chomp up dirt like it’s no big deal. To say the least it looks like it has been through many wars and fought hard and still has that fight in it. It’s so inspirational. Thus thank you for this one heck of a vacuum...it truly is a Shark...that doesn’t bite. P.S.: The cleaning business does not discriminate against any of its customers. But. We do pay attention at the type of vacuum they posses and those with Sharks are truly appreciated.

shark navagater lift away

I love the vacuum it really picks up the dog hair. I have 4 dogs so the hair is unreal. We also get very strong winds up here and the dirt is horrible. Only complaint I have is the hose is to short. when I use the lift away I have to really stretch the hose and it knocks vacuum over. the hose needs to be longer on all models. Thank you.

sold on this vacuum

I was sold on the shark when I heard it had a dial to decrease suction so smaller carpets don’t get sucked up. The only complaint I have is that I have gone thru both of the hoses because they split and I have to order new ones.

I cannot tell you how much I love my new Shark Navigator. I bought it when my old Bissell died. I have a little dog and it picks up all of the dog hair. My carpets are old and they have never looked so good. Thank you, Thank you for the Shark, I absolutely LOVE it!!! You should allow a 10+++++ rating : )

The best vacuum ever!

From the first time I used this vacuum it was powerful, easy to use and very convenient. I hate vacuuming but my Shark is just as powerful today as it was when I bought it years ago. My dog tries to bite it and it is still unblemished and hard-working. I just take it outside and use the hose to clean it after use. I highly recommend Shark products. Their customer service is also top drawer.

Better than Dyson

I have had this vacuum for 5 years and thought I would try out a Dyson. I bought the Dyson DC40 and it did not pick up even half of the dirt my Shark does. I am returning the Dyson and will never replace my Shark! I love it.

Great but some annoying features

Suction is great. The canister requires a lot of care and emptying every time you vacuum. We have a 6 room modest size house and 2 cats--us 2 adults and the cats. Vacuum picks up stuff great, though canister fills quickly and needs emptying at least once during major vacuuming of all rooms. Can’t believe the amount of fine dust it collects. Have to wash out the canister every couple weeks because when emptying it, the fine dust gets all over the outside of canister. I empty the contents inside a plastic b...more

I empty the contents inside a plastic bag to dispose of contents or dust flies all over. The vacuum is extremely tippy also, when using the attachments and stretching the hose. And the hose and cord should be longer--seems short compared to other vacuums I’ve had. Would I buy it again? I guess so, because it cleans so well. It’s just the maintenance and I can tell I’ll need to replace the filters a lot sooner than I thought when I bought it.

Shark nav

I really like my Shark sweeper for carpets. It’s easy to move around and has meter suction than my husbands Dyson. I’m disappointed in the lack of suction on bare floors. My cat scatters kitty litter across my hardwood floors and I have a difficult time getting it picked up. When using attachments, unless I remove the tank, the upright keeps falling over. Also the cord could be longer. Can I buy the long narrow attachment for under large appliances? I could sure use that.

Shark Navigator will make vacuuming fun!

I actually like to vacuum, now that I have a Shark liftaway. I clean homes and I wish every client would toss their heavy, dust blowing, mediocre vacuums and replace them with this vacuum. I don’t have pets, but I see fro the reviews it works well with pet hair build up. I have used Dysons, Bissell, and Hoover, and I will keep my Shark Navigator thanks!The extension wand will come in handy between stoves and fridges.

I bought the Shark lift away from the web site, prompt delivery time, I got the machine in 2011 and loved it from the start, I piece broke that could not be replaced, and the company honored the warranty I had left on it, Talked to the company on Monday, and had a new replacement machine the following Sat, I have told several of my family and friends about this great cleaner and as a result about 10 folks have gone out and bought them and are happy also.

I have owned a Dyson animal for 10 years. Bought the NV650W online. Went over the carpet first with the Dyson, then let loose the Shark. This thing eats Dyson’s for breakfast!! Went over the same area & filled the Shark with what the Dyson left! Best bang for the buck! Great machine & $200.00 less with all the gear +free stream mop. I am more than impressed! It’s hard to get excited about a vacuum but this thing ROCKS!!!

When my old vacuum finally wore out, I was happy. This meant I could buy a new one I actually liked. After researching just about every vacuum out there and interviewing most of my friends and family on their vacuum experiences, my sweet mother-in-law decided I should have a Shark Navigator Lift Away. I had no idea she bought it for me until it arrived at my door. I was surprised and a little skeptical since most the vacuums I have ever used have not lived up to the hype they received. Putting the vacuum together was a breeze and in no time I was vacuuming my floor. I could NOT BELIEVE what was coming out of my carpet! I vacuumed every single day, sometimes two or three times a day with my old vacuum(s). The carpet didn’t look dirty. But when I vacuumed with the Navigator Lift Away, it was like an infomercial. So much dirt and hair and whatever else was filling up the cup, it was full in less than two minutes. I only vacuumed a three-by-three area of my carpet! My husband came home to find me vacuuming and the kids fighting about who was going to take the next turn. Since then, my life has been easier when it comes to cleaning. I never knew it was possible to find joy in vacuuming until now. I mean, really, who finds joy in using a vacuum cleaner? I do now. It is lightweight, easy to maneuver, goes everywhere, easy to clean and maintain, easy to find any clogs and easy to use. Most of my friends have bought a Shark thanks to my experience. Should this little pleasure ever wear out, I am getting the exact same one. Finally, a vacuum that works as well as they say it does and doesn’t cost a house payment to acquire! LOVE MY NAVIGATOR LIFT AWAY!

I just moved back to an old house that I lived in as a KID I am 68, so MY brother has been the one cleaning and well I know MEN can clean but... well let me tell you I had to clean, (empty) the canester about 3 times and wipe the little rubber seals around every attachment, because the carpet WAS so bad. AND I had even used MY brothers ”Filter Queen” before I used MINE, ( Shark). I thought I had ruined MY Shark, but it kept working even after washing it out and drying the filters and letting them dry completely, it could take a LICKING and KEPT on SWEAPING, you know? well if you need any referance, I will be it because, I LOVE this LITTLE purple vack, she is a dream come true, for me I would say if you had trouble with it then call the company and ask them to make it right, I think they will work with you , because they are wonderful people, so good luck, and I hope you all find your’s as wonderful as mine is. OH! also I clean the filters and the canester out and wash, every time I use it and wipe down all the seals around every opening that gets opened? Understand, and that way the SMELL will NOT come back in your HOME, OR the DUST that can MAKE YOU NOT be able to BREATH,. hope this helped you.

It’s perfect with my 6 year old step son my 2 year old son. My 2 year old throws anything and everything on the floor. My 6 year old can easily operate it and lives vacuuming because of Shark. Out of all the other vacuums, Shark cleaned up all the need plus a lot of dirt that I didn’t even know was on the floor. I can clean my ceiling fans off without worrying about dust falling off, picks up all the hair, and my carpets feel better after I vacuum. I can’t wait until I get the Rocket!

1 little issue

I own the Navigator Lift Away Vacuum and mine seems to always be coming unconnected where the canister locks down at as I’m using my vacuum which is causing it to lose its suction power. Other than that one set back I love the vacuum cleaner. This is my second Shark Navigator Product I’ve purchased and the original vacuum Shark Pet Navigator was my favorite over all. That’s the one I wanted when I got the lift away.

Bought the Navigator Lift-A-Way a couple of years ago after watching the infomercial about 10 times. I have a lab who sheds like crazy and I had bought several vacuums that claimed to be ”pet specific”. The only thing specific about them was that I was constantly putting a coat hanger down the hose to unclog it. The customer service is fantastic!!!! Any problem that I’ve had, has ben resolved immediately. Love it!

Horrifying

The old vacuum finally kicked the bucket so I did my research and bought a Shark Navigator. First time I used it, I vacuumed up about a half a bushel of cat hair (to my amazement and horror). The Shark is much quieter, doesn’t need a bag and was a great price. I would especially recommend it to anyone with a cat or dog.

Shark Navigator Pro

This is a great vacuum with a couple of problems. The small wheels under the vacuum wear out the plastic around the metal pins making it necessary to replace power head. You can not replace just the brushes. The other issue is that it is difficult to vacuum under beds with the nozzle because of the bend in the top. If you try to force it it tears the hose. Suction is wonderful.

I’ve had my Shark Navigator NV350 about 5-6 yrs. I LOVE IT. Just had carpets cleaned. I vacuumed before shampoo. Man asked what kind of vacuum I had, told him, he said he’s never seen a carpet cleaned with such a small amount of cat hair left behind. Only MINOR complaint I have is the electric cord. It’s not very flexible and tends to knot up. A more flexible, longer cord would be good, but with the way my Shark works, I’ll live with the cord! BUY IT!

Best Vacuum Ever!

I have purchased many vacuums over the years both, bag-less and bags and found that the Shark has been the absolute best. With 2 dogs and 2 cats and family coming and going, it never fails to amaze me with the power it has to clean. With the complete seal technology, I never smell dust particles coming back into the air while vacuuming as I always did with other vacuums I had. I would highly recommend the Shark Vacuum over any other brand.

I love this Vacum. I just have one complant. The clips that hold the canister tight is broken and I have to tape it closed. So it’s not staying air tight. I’ve had this Vacum for a little over a year in July. Is there anything I can do about this. Thanks.

Love it!

I LOVE my shark!

I LOVE my shark! It is so powerful and by far the best vacuum I've ever had. I used to have to buy a new one every year but I am going on year 3 and had one little part break (likely my fault) and there was NO hassle when I called in to get repair. It was fixed for free (minus shipping) and I returned in better condition. Love this company and their products.

It works so well I am in shock!

I have had over 15 vacuums in my lifetime and now I have 3 dogs, this has been the BEST of all of them. I do have to empty the canister a few times when I do my rugs but that is because my dogs shed a lot and I do not mind at all. I have had it now for 2 years (the longest I have had any) and it works so well I am in shock !!! LOVE THIS !!!

Picked up what the other vacuum couldn't.

I bought the Shark navigator vacuum cleaner a few months a go. It is the best vacuum i have ever owned, i used it after vacuuming with my previous vacuum and it picked up what the other vacuum couldn't (cat hair)AMAZING. Its so easy to use and i now enjoy vacuuming.

this is the best vacuum I have ever had.

this is the best vacuum I have ever had. I use it every day.I like the light weight and the lift away feature. I use it at work and I have one for my home. 4 of my clients have bought one and 5 family and friends have bought one because I talked so highly of mine. the only thing you should improve is the side suction. It just doesn't get up close to the wall.But then again mine is the older model. thanks for a great product!!

This definitely is a product I will recommend.

This Vacuum is the best. Went over the floor with my old vacuum and then with the shark. Couldn't believe it, it picked up all the cat hair left behind(1 cat). All the fine dirt imbedded in the carpet too. It really does have a great suction power to it. The amazing tools and features of this vacuum are wonderful. I used on my hard floors too and picks up all the dirt as well. I done some high dusting with it. I have two ceiling fans. It really does a fantastic job. Was debating on this and an Dyson but am ...more

Was debating on this and an Dyson but am so happy I went with the Shark. This was the best birthday gift ever loving it and using it once every 2 days. Will keep you informed if I do find many other positives on this as the weeks go bye. Thank you Shark for making a wonderfully useful product that is truly light weight efficient and very durable. This definitely is a product I will recommend. Got a steam mop shark for my sis will post info on that as well. And my mother and aunt have a shark vacuum too aunt has one cat and mom has 5 dogs its fantastic for the both of them. LOVE LOTS Michelle Thanks YOU SHARK

I couldn't be happier.

I got the Shark Navigator Lift Away yesterday for Christmas, and I LOVE IT. It does an amazing job. I have a bassett hound and he sheds like crazy, I thought my other vacuum was doing an okay job, but I was so wrong. The Shark left my floors looking, feeling, and smelling so clean. I couldn't be happier. money well spent. I have other shark products and I've never been disappointed with any of their products.

It is the best vacuum I have ever used.

Just got the shark navigator lift away for Christmas. It is the best vacuum I have ever used. It is easy to use and carry anywhere. Very light weight but it has more suction power than my old upright. I definitely would recommend it to anyone.

The last vacuum we will ever need to buy

41 years of marriage, working on 42. We have had Hoovers, Compact, Electrolux, and Oreck which I thought was the answer to the best vacuum. I WAS WRONG. The Shark/Navigator is and will be the last vacuum we will ever need to buy (unless you actually can improve on it). We pride ourselves on keeping a clean house, WOW, we are now. A bonus is the vacuum is easy to clean up after use, I actually wash the dirt compartment and filter each time to ensure a good job the next time. Thank you, Thank you, and Thank y...more

I highly highly recommend the Shark!

I LOVE my shark vacuum! I had a dyson and it never worked even half as good as the Shark. The customer service is amazing, I had to call them with a minor problem and they got the part in the mail immediately...I highly highly recommend the Shark!!!!

Works very well.

I previously posted a 3-star review due to the quality of the product, but then called customer service and they are replacing the broken parts due to a 5-year warranty I didn't realize I had. I'm so happy I don't need to spend another $200 for a vacuum! Some of the parts could use better construction, but it does work very well otherwise.

It was definitely worth the money spent!

Two days after having our floor "professionally" cleaned, I bought the Shark Navigator Lift Away because our old one was..well..old and didn't do very well anymore. After using it...I wondered why I had my carpets cleaned. It picked up so much more dirt I was actually embarrassed to know there was that much dirt in my carpet. It was definitely worth the money spent!

This is awesome!

This is awesome! The pet hair is trapped inside the Shark Navigator lift away. The favorite part of the vacuum is that I lake canister mode.
