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.

Using the vacuum:
  • Insert the end of the flexible hose into the connector on the back of the Lift-AroundTM Portable Vac.
  • Insert the removable tool caddy onto the front of the Portable Vac. To remove the tool caddy, hold the vacuum by the handle, pull out slightly from the right side and then remove it from the Portable Vac.
  • To remove the tool caddy, hold the vacuum by the handle, pull out slightly from the right side and then remove it from the Portable Vac.
  • Insert the crevice tool, dusting brush and upholstery brush into the openings on the tool caddy.
  • Attach the shoulder strap onto the hooks on the handle of the Portable Vac.
  • Insert the telescopic tube to the flexible hose. Push it in until it is secure.
    NOTE: All accessories may be used with the flexible hose or the telescopic tube.

Maintaining the vacuum:
  • Press the dust cup release button and remove the dust cup from the vacuum.
  • For maximum suction and cleaning performance, empty the dustcup after each use.
  • 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.
  • To clean the upper compartment of the dust cup, press the top door release button to open. Empty the contents over a trash receptacle and push the door shut until it clicks into place.
  • Remove the pre-motor filters out from the top of the motor base. Rinse the filters thoroughly in lukewarm water until the water runs clear.

One GREAT product!

I would like to congratulate Shark team for this product!!! I own 2 Dyson and one iRobot vacuum cleaners, and you can imagine how much I invested in my pursuit of finding one machine that really helps me in keeping my house clean. So,I paid $500 for one Dyson vacuum, which helps with pet hair, but is not able to pick up a little kibble from the floor. Irobot is for my lazy days but you cannot make it clean in the corners of a room, and is not able to pick up pet hair. I cannot believe I bought this amazing ...more

I own 2 Dyson and one iRobot vacuum cleaners, and you can imagine how much I invested in my pursuit of finding one machine that really helps me in keeping my house clean. So,I paid $500 for one Dyson vacuum, which helps with pet hair, but is not able to pick up a little kibble from the floor. Irobot is for my lazy days but you cannot make it clean in the corners of a room, and is not able to pick up pet hair. I cannot believe I bought this amazing Shark vacuum cleaner with under $100 which performs better than a Dyson, and can make dusting and vacuuming so much fun!!I wear cross body a vacuum cleaner and dance vacuuming!!! I bought this machine from Bed, Bath&Beyond with the regular attachments that helps me dusting from sofas to ceiling corners with so much ease. Under the spell of my first use of this Shark vacuum, I cannot express my happiness when I found they attachments for floor use (under $50) on their website!!! And what is impressive is that what beats the convenience of the innovative versatility of this vacuum cleaner, is only its amazing performance!!Can you believe it? I own a vacuum cleaner that costs (with the floor attachments) less than $150 that beats 2 Dyson cleaners an one iRobot!...I never wrote a review, and I am a very selective consumer, but I have to have to thank you, Shark team for one product that does much more than what advertised it. Thank you! CONGRATULATIONS for one GREAT product!

I love it!

I am thrilled with my new Shark Lift-Around purchase. I have a older vacuum cleaner (Hoover Z 400) which has served me well for 6 years but wanted to get something lighter in weight with a better filtration system (you smell no orders with the Shark Lift-Around) and I have found it in the Shark Lift-Around. I had planned on just using this product for the stairs and baseboards and just keep my full size vacuum cleaner downstairs but I tried using the 'Straight Suction Nozzle' (a full size vacuum cleaner pie...more

And guess what? It worked so well, I'll never need to use my old vacuum again. This is a great product that I got on sale at BJ's for $49.99. I love it! - Gina

Thank you Shark

I've been using this vacuum cleaner since July and my wife and I are very happy with it. It's a time saver and works great on stairs. It's very light weight and easy to empty without a dusty mess. Thank you Shark

Can't beat the clean for the price.

Love, love, love this vacuum! Makes keeping up with 4 Dobermans much easier. I use the strap positioned across the body from shoulder to the hip. Very easy to manage this way and one can use both hands when necessary. Can't beat the clean for the price.

This vacuum made every chore so much easier.

I love this vacuum. I orignally bought it for my stairs because it's light weight. I use it daily for just about everything. I have 5 kids and 2 dogs. I cannot emphasize enough that I use this vacuum daily! It's great for the couch, dusting blinds, curtains, baseboards, car, bathroom, stairs, every where! My dog chewed the electrical cord on it and I'm so sad. I'm not sure how I'm going to clean now that this vacuum made every chore so much easier.

EXCELLENT PRODUCT!

FABULOUS BARE FLOOR VACUUM!!! Thank you Shark for creating this vacuum. I had been searching and searching for a bare floor vacuum for our house. I had bought 2 already that only blew hair and dust all over the place. I was sweeping entire house with a broom because I could not find a superior vacuum for bare floors at a reasonable price. I did not want to spend hundreds of dollars on a vacuum and could not afford to do so. I was in Costco one day and came across this vacuum. I decided to give it a try. Boy...more

I did not want to spend hundreds of dollars on a vacuum and could not afford to do so. I was in Costco one day and came across this vacuum. I decided to give it a try. Boy - I was hooked! It is by far the best bare floor vacuum ever!! It was important to me to get a superior HEPA filtration vacuum due to the fact that we have several pets indoors. We have tile and hardwood/laminate. It is amazing!! I was so excited I told my friend to go buy one. She loves it too! I went to get another one at Costco but they had flown off the shelves. I want another one for upstairs. The ease of use and suction and HEPA filtration are fantastic. EXCELLENT PRODUCT!

Very impressive!

Definitely one of the most powerful vacuums I've ever used. I was amazed at the suction power of this vacuum and am embarrassed for the other vacuums that I've used before because the Shark Lift-Around just cleaned up what the others couldn't. Looking to buy another for a family member. Very impressive!

I love it.

This is a great vacuum...very light weight, well designed, very flexible hose, meets more than what I anticipated, yet does everything that I want. I purchased it mainly for use in my car, but wow, it is a gem, does so much, all parts go together very easy....I had done much research on a hand held, lite weight vac before my purchase...the Hepa allergen free was a must as I have extreme allergies and any others I tried shot back in my face, well this vac is everything they say it is...I love it.
