Cord comes out on the right side. It can be directed behind the hose to be on your left for right-hand vacuuming. It hand-reels up on the right, as well.

The cord is connected on the right and is a little awkward for right-hand vaccuming but can be put in behind the hose to direct it left. It hand-reels up on the right-side as well. Long Cord. Highly Recommend, it's incredible!

Question
Is the beater brush removable for cleaning? One of the "cons" for the Shark Navigator is that the bottom beater brush area cannot be taken apart.

answer 1
There is no "BEATER brush".

There IS a "ROLLER brush" that picks up dirt, hair and other 'detritus' from the carpet.

The roller brush IS removable but you need to unscrew about a dozen screws (some screws are semi-hidden).

If the roller brush wasn't removable, how else could one replace the belt that turns the roller brush?

To remove hair from around the roller brush, use a pair of scissors to cut the hair and pull it out.

Yes, I used to love my Dyson until I purchased this vacuum. The Shark works so much better and is easier to handle. I have two large shedding dogs and works great on dog hair. It works well on carpet, hardwood and tile floors. I highly recommend.

Yes, I used a Dyson some years ago and I have to say that so far that I find the Shark to be superior and the mere fact it is sealed makes it very appealing. I'm not too sure the Dyson was sealed in the same fashion. I think you will be impressed with any Shark Vacuum you select but I would definitely look for the ones that are sealed; not all Sharks have this feature. Good Luck!

Hi Ship,

Suction will not deteriorate over time. We do recommend cleaning the pre-motor filters every 3 months to maintain maximum suction. (Simply rinse under tap water until water runs clear then let air dry before replacing them)
