FAQs of Shark Rocket HV300

Does This include the wall mount?

Answer:The unit I received did not include the wall mount.

Question:Is the brush driven by a motor or just by suction?

Answer:The brush drives by a motor. I use it for my cleaning business a couple of houses a day. Strong and just amazing!!!

Question:what Shark vacuum has an on/off switch for the motorized brush roller or an attachment to clean a long shag rug

Answer:This one has a two stage switch, level one does not engage roller, second stage does! No attachment for shag.

Question:Is the device suitable for working in Europe / Israel?

Answer:No idea if it has a 110 volt American plug on it !

Question:Is the cord of Shark Rocket HV300 retractable? Are there enough attachments to do everything or will I need to purchase more?

Answer:The cord is not retractable, but there are hooks to wind it around. I feel I have enough attachments to do standard cleaning, but I suppose if you’re doing something specialty you may need an attachment that wasn’t included

Question:Is this Shark Rocket HV300 the same vacuum as the orange HV302 and grey Rocket vacuum?

Answer: the same but different accessories

Question:Where can I find the replacement for the exhaust on the blue shark rocket hv300?

Answer:You can find them at Walmart I don’t think they sell that vacuum anymore but in the vacuum section they have a bunch of replacement filters if they are not in the store you probably can order them off Amazon 

Question:Even though it is bagless, would you need replacement filters?

Answer:No. But there is a foam filter on the top. If you don’t clean it regularly, it will not suck well.

Question:Does this model stand upright on it’s own?

Answer:Yes, but with difficulty. You have to prop it up in the corner of a room. Also, the main distraction is cleaning & removing and cleaning out fuzz balls and accumulated debris. The cord does not detach from the unit, so you must clean the unit with cord attached. 

Question:Does this unit have a backlight?

Answer:No, but it is a great little vacuum.
