What makes the Shark Rocket Corded Ultra Light Vacuum possibly the best pet vacuum is, above all else, its consistency. It's corded electric, so power is constant, unfailing, unyielding. Versatility is part of who it is, with a pet multi-tool and self-cleaning brush roll that makes it a shoe-in as the best vacuum for pet hair. It\u2019s starting to look like the best handheld vacuum!\r\n\r\nWhy We Like It - Shark Rocket Corded Ultra Light\r\nStick or handheld? The Shark Rocket Corded Ultra Light Vacuum asks: why not both? Forget choosing between the two modes and take strong, consistent suction power across bare floors and carpets alike.\r\n\r\nPower, Speed & Efficiency\r\nThe Shark Rocket Ultra Light Corded Bagless Vacuum delivers 500 watts of power to both carpets and hard floors, the same as Shark Rocket HV301. Its hard bristles dig deeply into carpets for excellent floor cleaning, but with a quick switch you\u2019ll be cleaning hardwood floors without so much as a scratch. And pet hair? Tackle that with the pet upholstery tool. For above-ground cleaning, the floor nozzle crevice tool combo can suck up debris and dust away edges and cobwebs. Putting it away for the day is done so via wall mount.\r\nBin Capacity, Maintenance & Durability\r\nPet hair on the floor? The vacuum\u2019s brush roll is self-cleaning, so you don\u2019t have to worry about cutting away human or pet hair. The canister will have to be cleaned and rinse the filter every now and then. Durability is surprisingly good. It\u2019s a combination of ABS and PP plastics, with a splash of metal and rubber. Like cordless stick vacuums, Shark Rocket Corded Ultra Light Vacuums have smaller dustbins, this one being 20 ounces. It\u2019s a far cry from an Oreck Commercial Upright XL2100, but that uses bags, not a canister.\r\nValue\r\nIs the Shark Rocket DeluxePro Upright Vacuum worth its salt? It just might be one of the best vacuums of its price bracket. It doesn\u2019t fall into the same pit as cordless vacuum cleaners because its power is derived from a cord, not batteries\u2014but does have too few attachments. Still, you\u2019ll always get consistent performance, provided you keep the filter and dustbin clean. For smart homes, there\u2019s more value from an iRobot Roomba 675.\r\nShark Rocket Corded Ultra Light Wrap Up\r\nThere\u2019s so little holding the Shark Rocket Corded Ultra Light Vacuum from holding it back. Sure, it could use a few more attachments, but you can buy those separately. And its power cord is still relatively long, just a tad short. You\u2019ll still get consistent suction power because of it, in addition to a self-cleaning brush roll and handheld mode.
