This is the latest Shark APEX multi purpose vacuum cleaner which converts from a push/pull floor vacuum to also a hand carried vacuum which addresses 95% of all my vacuuming requirements. The vacuum also comes with a pet hair cleaning attachment which performs admirably especially with long haired dogs who tend to shed hair incessantly. This is a very desirable HEPA filter vacuum which filters 99% of all exhausted air making it ideal for those susceptible to allergies. I have a old Dyson which tends to require frequent maintenance often such as having to continually clean out the cyclone separator and impossible to remove beater bar. This shark however has a easily removable beater bars making it easier to rid myself of wrapped-around hair and the occasional strands of pulled carpet weave. Shark is a trusted maker of many vacuums and I am sure many have already seen their TV commercials. Suction of this Apex vacuum is breathtaking and way better than any of their competitors. Owners manual and quick start guide are included along with 4 attachments making this vacuum as complete as you would want. Seven year warranty instills confidence you will NOT have any issues whatsoever for many years. Swivel head makes it a joy vacuuming underneath beds, tables, and chairs. This is a bagless vacuum so you will also NOT go broke having to stock and continually replace bags. High impact plastics used on this vacuum’s construction and in the rare event you require replacement parts the Shark website is just a few clicks away to place online orders.

This SHARK Model AX952 is ABSOLUTELY AMAZING! It is truly AWESOME. It seems to just glide along effortlessly doing the job for you. I was really surprised to see how strong the suction is. Very powerful and yet quieter than other vacuums. The lift away feature is a fantastic option to have and makes cleaning easier. It's easy to carry around and the dust cup is also easy to empty. This vacuum maneuvers easily from surface to surface and I love the soft roller for the wood floors.
It was very easy to assemble as everything fits together easily and gently. The quality is very nice. It is well made and well built.
Everything on the vacuum is clearly marked such as which button releases what, etc. The accessories are all innovative and make cleaning nooks and crannies, furniture and stairs so much better. The Motorized Pet Tool is my favorite accessory. It does come with a quick start guide and a more in depth booklet. I recommend reading the entire booklet to familiarize yourself with the BEST Vacuum Cleaner EVER!!!!! I made a short video to show you some of the features and how much I love this vacuum and I definitely highly recommend to all!

The Shark APEX DuoClean Vacuum has exceeded ALL my expectations! It out performs Dyson, Hoover and Electrolux....all of which I have owned. First time using it and it suctioned up dust from UNDER the carpet which the other vacuums didn't touch!! The whole vacuum is kind of heavy to move around although the powered sweeper head helps. It can seem awkward at times to handle due to the unbalanced weight of the canister. The canister is a little heavy to carry in "stand alone mode" so I am ordering the optional "wheeled canister cart" and an extra set of filters (to have on hand when original ones are drying after being washed) from the Shark website as the Home Depot website doesn't show them. The extension cord is more than long enough but the vacuum's hose is kind of short when using it as a "stand alone" canister. Assembly and Disassembly is very easy and all most all parts are easily accessible for cleaning or replacement except for the "roller brush assembly". Vacuum is incredibly quiet and has remarkable suction in all "modes". The dust collector bin is very easy to remove and empty and while it is "tinted"....the collected dust level can be easily seen. I was disappointed that the "wand" has to be removed in order to remove & reinstall the canister but that is a minor inconvenience. I have yet to try out the powered upholstery brush head. The comb. crevice tool and brush provides great suction...often lifting the carpet!! The LED lighting on the sweeper head and on the wand make for easy viewing under furniture, beds, closets and corners. The sweeper head swivels easily and makes for easy maneuvering. The powered sweeper head is very powerful/fast and can at times pull itself faster than one may want. I bought this vacuum on sale and was a bit skeptical of the SHARK brand BUT I MUST say the it looks very well made and structurally sound. I have recommended this vacuum to many of my friends. I wish that Home Depot would carry the "wheeled canister cart" and replacement filters either online or in the store.....otherwise I am Very HAPPY with my purchase.

I can see how some people like this vacuum but it was not for me. I ultimately decided to return it but first, I will list what I liked. For starters, the vacuum did a really good job picking up dirt and debris and keeping the dust contained within the unit. I could not believe how much stuff it pulled out of my deep pile frieze carpet. It also did a good job sweeping my linoleum floor. The vacuum is very quiet compared to my old one and the cord is nice and long. I like the power button being on the handle right by your thumb. The LED headlights are also a nice touch. There are a few reasons I am returning it. First, it sucked up all of my area rugs even with the vacuum on the area rug setting. Second, it is quite heavy and due to the double brush-rolls, it pulls itself forward very aggressively when vacuuming carpet. That, combined with the relatively narrow cleaning head means it took me a lot longer to vacuum my house and I was a lot more fatigued when done. I also didn't like how the brush-rolls don't go near the edge of the cleaning head which means there is always a strip of carpet that doesn't get vacuumed. I was really hoping the powered lift-away mode was going to help me with my carpeted stairs but it didn't. When holding the vacuum in one hand, I am not strong enough to lift the powered cleaning head with my other hand. If I set the vacuum on the floor, and try to stretch the hose, it tips over. I settled for using the mini powered attachment but I don't feel it did a good job on frieze carpet and it took a long time to do all of my stairs with such a narrow cleaning head. So overall, this cleaned very well but for me, was more hassle than it was worth.
APEX DuoClean Powered Lift-Away Vacuum Model AX952.
To get right to the point this new vacuum by Shark is in every way the best vacuum I have ever used. Everything is so well thought out and works as you would expect. I was first impressed with how easy it is to assemble out of the box. The directions are clear and I love how everything makes a click sound as you make short work of putting it together (took maybe 5 -10 minutes to unbox and assemble.) If you read through the owner’s manual once you may never need to again. Everything is so easy to operate and understand with this machine. Very simple to operate with 3 lighted switch positions: “Thick Carpet/ Area Rug”. “Carpet-Low Pile” and “Hard Floor”. All are located on the handle so no bending over! Our bedroom carpet is a plush thick carpet (“Thick Carpet/ Area Rug” setting) and it did a wonderful job of cleaning not only did it clean right up to the baseboards, but under the bed too! With the “Lift-Away” I could go all the way under the bed and under the dressers for the 1st time. My old upright couldn’t do that! My office is a short pile carpet and on (“Carpet Low Pile” setting) It did a beautiful job. I then used it on the kitchen floor (“Hard Floor”) and it picked up everything right up to the baseboards leaving nothing behind between the floor and baseboards. So light weight and easy to maneuver around tight spaces once you use this vacuum you will never go back to a regular upright. The electrically motorized pet tool really rotates and brushes the fabrics, not like some when the brush stops when you touch the brush to the fabric this really does work and removes pet hair dirt etc. No vacuum is quiet, but this one makes a lot less noise than my old one. My dog still doesn’t like when I vacuum, but she didn’t make any fuss while I used this Shark for the 1st time, she just left the room. The LED lights are bright and help me see where I’m going and especially under furniture in search of “dust bunnies”. This is my 1st bag less vacuum and it’s super easy to carry the dust container to the trash and push the button to empty. The cleaning of the filters is done by simple rinse and dry when they get dirty enough to require washing. I highly recommend this vacuum.

Wow!! Talk about power, this vacuum cleaner is capable of deep cleaning any type of carpet. We had an old vacuum cleaner that we thought was doing the job, but in one room only, it filled the canister. Very very impressive. The components were easy to attach and deattach, storage of the small components were on the vacuum itself. The cord was a good length and also easy to store or limit length in smaller areas. The one attachment I was interested in was the upholstery cleaning attachment. The dog loves riding in the mutt truck (aptly named by the better half), but was getting a tad hairy and smelly. I can’t emphasize enough what a great job the upholstery attachment cleaned off dog hair. Very easy to use and the small size makes that component a perfect upholstery cleaner. It will be a monthly project to keep the truck clean. This is truly a versatile and heavy duty vacuum.

Suction great, better than Dyson. Rolls easily, unlike Dyson doesn't collapse when wheeled fully upright. Good accessories. $199 special at HD was a great price. Heavy! Carpet mode almost drags you off your feet. No Zero-M, too long to get hair out of brushes. Returning it, trying a Zero-M.
Given as a gift and on the second day of use the soft front roller makes an awful squeaking sound. It was removed making sure nothing was wrapped around either roller and reinserted , but nothing helped.
impressive vacuum. I have a big family and i waited to put this extremely gruelling test .. I was very impressed with the cleaning power . This vacuum blew through this mess ,dust ,animal hair . The mess was no match for my new vacuum. As a mother of seven ,two dogs,cat & husband . Very happy now
