Shark Rocket Ultra Light Upright Hv301 Review

This vacuum has been highlyrated when it comes to sucking minute pet hairs on floors but seemed to perform poorly in pull larger debris from bare surfaces. In the cleaning of hard floors,it is quite evident that the vacuum cleaner is unable to pick particles like flour but was able to pick larger particles like those belonging to oatmeal.

Its brush roll is constantly on when running on any surface and thus lacks the automatic surface adjustment feature found in its peers.

The continuously activated brush roll leads to the vacuum cleaner being moved forward when working. Like most of its peers, it can clean under furniture and also, it can reach some hard to reach crevices.

Also, it comes with an additional accessory which include washable microfiber pad for removal of dust.


HV301 provides powerful suction abilities giving an edge over its peers in the same category which apparently translates to better cleaning abilities leaving no stains and dirt marks behind.

 Its powerful suction also means that it can pick larger debris, unlike its competitors. The input power of 500 watts is a good energy saving deal and thus makes it attractive to environmental conscience individuals.
