Shark Rotator NV682 reviews
Shark Rotator Powered Lift-Away Speed Upright Vacuum (NV682) is known as Shark’s Rotator most compact Lift-Away unit which is only about 13 lbs. but this NV682 performs excellently like other full-size Lift-Away units.
The unit is featured by the Powered Lift-away canister for further cleaning under furniture, fingertips control for better usage, bright LED lights in brush roll and a complete seal air filter plus HEPA for releasing fresh air only.
The best part of Shark Rotator NV682 is very lightweight which is a better option if you are looking for a whole home vacuum cleaner for old person or ladies.
On the other hands, this unit does not have Duoclean brush head so that if you have a lot of pets and carpets, you should look for the Shark Duoclean upright vacuum to pull up more pet hairs from your carpets.

Answer: I don’t know exactly, but when I’m doing stairs where I would need to lift it, I take the cannister off and use the upholstery attachment, so you really don’t have to lift the whole thing. In fact, even on my hard floors I often use the longer handle and hard floor attachment.
Question: Some sites offer this truepet version with model nv752 but the latest tv ad seems to be promoting nv800. what’s the difference between the two?
Answer: I don’t know. I didn’t like the one I got and sent it back.
How easy or diffuclt is it to handle? Especially over carpet?
Answer: No problem on carpet it pulls itself. The head with the beaters takes minute to get used to because you can swivel it right or left, the old timey ones you could only go straight. I love the pull away canister so easy can get it right under the bed.
