Bought this in replacement of Henry hoover. So much easier on the stairs and picks up so much dirt off the carpets
Better than a Dyson
Really good pick up. Seems stronger than a Dyson. Cylinder is a little small but this leads to more constant emptying especially when the kids have used it. Quiet too compared to other Vacuums we’ve had
This vacuum is great and well worth the price. The suction power is strong and carpets look new after one use. I particularly like this as the vacuum separates from the base making it easy to use to clean the stairs. Would definitely recommend.
This does not lock in place.
I hope this helps,
Thanks for using Argos Q&A.

No you can’t lock it in a position. I find the shark easy to manoeuvre as you only have to turn the top a little and it will change direction unlike the Dysons which I feel have more movement and change direction too easily meaning they are harder to control. The shark is not a light vacuum cleaner though if this is a concern.

It doesn't appear to. As long as you empty the dust container and wash the filters as per instructions it is the best performing vacuum I have owned.

I have checked the User Manual for Troubleshooting for this Shark NV681UK Powered Lift-Away Bagless Vacuum Cleaner which states:-
"Vacuum is not picking up dirt. No suction or light suction • Check filters to see if they need cleaning. Follow instructions for rinsing and drying the filters before re-inserting back into the
• Dust cup may be full; empty dust cup.
• Check hose, hose connections, nozzles, and accessories for blockages; clear blockages if required.
• Remove any string, carpet fibres or hair that may be wrapped around the brushroll".
Thank you for using Argos Q&A.

I would say no I have also found it a massive improvement on our previous Hoover and being able to vary the sucction levels between wooden floors and carpets in our new home has been fab. Overall a fab Hoover once you are used to the different parts and tools.

Hi, The Foam and Felt filters and the HEPA filter should be rinsed with water only and left for at least 24 hours to dry. Tap loose dirt off filters between washes as needed. We recommend the Pre-Motor Filter Kit (Foam & Felt) are cleaned every 3 months, the HEPA filter, every year.
