FAQs of Shark Rocket HV380

Does the vacuum have a filter? What kind of filter does it use?


Question:Does the vacuum have a filter?

Answer:It has two built-in filters that you wash out once a month. No paper filters to change. It is easy to empty the collected dust into the trash can.

Question:Planning to ship overseas. What are the dimensions of the shipping box?

Answer:You will need to contact company -I believe there are a couple of sizes

Question:Does beater bars disengage for hardwood floors?

Answer:We have laminate floors and long hair gets wrapped around the beat bars – so I would say “no”. We’ve had the vacuum cleaner for about a year and I love it.

Question:Is it self propelled?

Answer:It is not self- propelled. You must propel it yourself.

Question:What are the wheels made of?

Answer:They are plastic wheels with a rubber strip down the middle.

Question:How does it work on deep shag

Answer:I can’t really answer that question because I don’t have any shag carpeting, only rugs. But I can tell you that it did really well with my rugs.

Question:how long is cord?

Answer:Long enough to do 3 rooms before moving to another plug.

Question:Need front brush roll

Answer:If you have flooring with no carpet then the answer is yes. It leaves a nice shine on our floors.

Question:Is the battery removable?

Answer:There is no battery. Outlet powered only.

Does this include the hardfloor attachment?

Answer:Yes it does.

Question:Does it need bags or filters?

Answer:It is bagless but has two filters. The compartment allowing access to the filters is easily accessible and the filters just need to be washed off.

Question:What is the true warranty on refurbished vacuum?

Answer:I used the amazon purchase protection plan for two years.

Question:will the brushes scratch up a waxed concrete interior floor?

Answer:The vacuum has a three position switch. Off, vac only, and vac with brush function. I don’t believe the brushes will scratch concrete, but you can always operate on vac function without running the brushes.

Question:We have rugs and our current vacuum is too powerful and sucks up the rugs. Is the power level adjustable (or, how does it work on rugs)?

Answer:This will suck up loose unsecured rugs as well.

Question:How tall is it? Asking for storage purposes.

Answer:It is easy to store via taking the foot or top off so no problems anywhere for storage.

Typical length of a normal vacuum

Question:If I want to return it because I don’t like it, are there free returns or do I pay shipping?

Answer:I don’t know. This is my second shark and I am very satisfied.

Question:What size is the head

Answer:10.25/7 inches.
