Short Power Cord
Top heavy
Best Uses
Carpet
Comment:
Shark sweepers are top heavy. The hose also has a habit of cracking. Does not have carpet height adjustment and will not work on thicker carpet. Their Costumer services leaves a lot to be desired. Would not buy another one. In fact I use the one I bought in my garage, have had to duct tape hose, will not push on new carpet
How long have you owned it:
More than six months
Bottom Line
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.
