Shark Rotator Powered Lift-Away TruePet (NV752) Full review


Especially for those who live in a multi-floor home with multiple pets, (and possibly multiple allergies), the Shark TruePet upright vacuum by SharkNinja can give you the simple solution to getting rid of unwanted pet hair and debris or dander that can make its way into the air.

SharkNinja, maker of cleaning and kitchen appliances since 1995, has been named as one of Inc. Magazine’s 5,000 fastest-growing companies in America for five years and is the manufacturer of the Shark Rotator Powered Lift-Away TruePet Vacuum. They can be found spread throughout the United States, Canada, the UK and China, while their products occupy the shelves of major big-box retailers all across the world.

This upright vacuum is ideal for any pet-owner and any home with any type of floor. Since the product has multiple modes, covering ground (literally) of carpet and wood/tile floors alike, you can feel assured it is able to provide the performance you need when you need it the most.

With its Anti-Allergen complete seal technology, a pet owner with allergies can easily benefit from this investment.

Key Features

With so many options, it’s impossible not to be covered with the Shark Rotator Lift-Away and find the mode that works perfect for your pet-loving household—or use all three under one roof! The Rotator Powered Lift-Away TruePet (NV752) offers three types of vacuums in one: upright, canister and handheld.

Each mode has its purpose. The traditional, upright-vacuum is perfect for standard floor usage, with advanced swivel steering and a sturdy body to give even the thick high-pile carpets and rugs a thorough and deep clean. The reason why upright vacuums are so efficient when it comes to cleaning carpets is the fact that they have powerful motors to produce strong suction, which is then applied to the carpet with the help of the sturdy and heavy body of the vacuums itself. No need to use force yourself, when you have the weight of the vacuum to help you out.

The powered lift-away mode extends the reach of the motorized cleaner head and gives the vacuum the agility of a canister vacuum. Just lift up the canister and place it in a caddy. This allows the vacuum to move along with you, making cleaning around the house much easier and more convenient when you have hard floors that don't need the extra force to be cleaned. In this mode, you can reach under low-built furniture and other hard-to-reach places.

The last mode is the above-floor mode, which provides premium above-floor cleaning capability with those hard to reach areas, like the carpeted-stairs. You can easily carry the body of the vacuum and use hose and motorized brush tool to vacuums all kins of upholstered furniture. For pet owners, this is a huge plus as the motorized brush tool is one of the most effective ones on the market and will certainly remove all pet hair and other dirt from all kinds of fabrics and carpeted stairs.

The canister is designed with a, pardon the pun, vacuum-sealed finish—allowing no particles out and keeping the air around you cleaner than ever.

The suction power of the Shark Rotator Powered Lift-Away TruePet combined with its Anti-Allergen Complete Seal Technology, and HEPA filter assures that 99.9% of pet hair, dust, dander and all kinds of allergens are trapped inside the vacuum. Without the seal, a small amount of exhaust air could exit the vacuum cleaner before going through the filtration putting some of the allergens back the air.

With this feature, you're promised quality air and a complete defense system of any allergens escaping the vacuum.

These two attachments combined with the powerful suction make this vacuum the perfect pet hair vacuum. Both tools are designed to pick up pet hair, and they really do an excellent job at it.

The motorized brush is something you can use on challenging surfaces such as carpets, carpeted stairs and upholstered furniture which collect a lot of pet hair. The motorized brush has stiff bristles which dig deep into even the most hard-to-clean carpets and pick up all the pet hair, dust and dirt for the vacuum to suck up into the dirt container. This is one of the most powerful tools for pet hair on the market and definitely why you should trust this upright vacuum to help you with your pet hair problem.

You also get the Pet-Multi Tool which is a great tool for picking up hair on other more delicate fabrics and surfaces. It comes with two parts: one has a brush for brushing off dust and hair, the other one is lined with felt to attract pet hair. It also is one of the most useful tools for pet hair out there.

You might think that an upright vacuum this size and with this kind of power will be hard to maneuver and steer. Although the Shark Rotator Powered Lift-Away TruePet upright vacuum is quite heavy like all powerful upright vacuums are, it is actually quite easy to maneuver even in the upright mode with the canister attached.

The steering allows you to easily vacuum around furniture while still using the weight of the vacuums to help you get a thorough clean on carpets. And when you need a slimmer composition to reach under low-built furniture, you just lift up the canister.

This canister is extremely user-friendly: opened with the touch of a button from the bottom and from the top, you can empty it completely in a second. There is no need to pull out wads of hair as the contents just fall out once you open the dustbin.

To get to those hard-to-see and hard-to-reach dark corners, this vacuums has LED lights that are located not only on the handle but the nozzle as well.

The positioning of the LED lights makes it possible for you to see the fingertip controls when reaching under furniture, and you are also able to see further and deeper than before, with the LED lights on the nozzle. With the LED lights to guide your way, you can really get all that pet hair hiding under large pieces of furniture, which otherwise escapes your sight.

Filtration – Rinsable and HEPA Filters

In order to make sure that the air is kept clean as you vacuum, the SharkNinja has incorporated the use of an Anti-Allergen Complete Seal Technology system, which works together with a lifetime HEPA filter to filter out dirt and other allergens.

The Shark Rotator Powered Lift-Away TruePet upright vacuum has two washable pre-motor filters made of foam and felt, which should be kept clean by rinsing them under running water and letting them dry thoroughly every three months. It also has a post-filter which is HEPA grade and has the capacity to trap 99.99% of all particles 0.3 microns or larger in size. This actually means that the efficient filtering captures all dust, dander, allergens, and pollutants.

This vacuum is also equipped with an Anti-Allergen Complete Seal Technology, which will prevent any exhaust air escaping before being filtered. This sealed system together with the HEPA filter makes it a perfect purchase from any pet owner suffering from allergies.


Pet Hair Removal

Through its various modes, the Shark Rotator Powered Lift-Away TruePet can be used on most surfaces—wood, carpet, and tile and be trusted in gathering all kinds of pet hair, no matter the length or the quantity.

This vacuum cleaner is highly effective when it comes to getting rid of pet hair. The powerful suction combined with the Hard Floor Hero cleaning head target bare floors to remove all hair, dust, dander, and dirt, providing a polished cleaning result. And when it comes to removing pet hair from carpets, you can switch to carpet mode with an easy push on the fingertip controls. Both modes work well in removing pet hair and make this vacuum one of the top choices in vacuums for pet hair.

What really makes the Shark Rotator Powered Lift-Away TruePet stand out in its category is the two extremely well-designed attachments for pet hair: TruePet Motorized Brush and Pet-Multi Tool. These two attachments allow you to easily get rid of even the most stubborn pet hair embedded in carpeting and fabrics. They work perfectly with furniture, carpeted stairs, curtain, bedding and many more. And if you want to get rid of all that pet hair stuck in your car, these tools will take care of it in no time!


Using its stiff bristles and various modes you can use this vacuum for deep-cleaning carpets and removing even the most unyielding pet hair and dirt.

You can adjust the settings to comply with high-performance cleaning on carpets: it has a feature for high-pile carpet setting which is ideal for dealing with thick carpets, as well as a low-pile setting for softer ones. These features will allow you to adjust, not just the suction, but even the speed of the vacuum cleaner’s motorized brush. The powerhead even has a brush pattern which is designed to leave the carpets feeling noticeably fluffier and cleaner.

When cleaning thick carpets and rugs, you should use the upright mode whenever possible. The weight and design of the vacuum allow you to apply pressure on the carpet resulting in an even deeper clean. Although, many users say this vacuum is actually so powerful it seems to pull itself forward.

Bare Floors

Just as effective on the bare floor/hard floor surfaces as it is with carpet, the Shark TruePet utilizes its Hard Floor Hero feature to target those laminate floors and tiles. This means that no matter what type of floor that you have throughout the house, the Shark Rotator Powered Lift-Away TruePet has got it covered—literally.


When it comes to upholstery on your furniture or car seats, we bring up yet again the two amazing tools: TruePet Motorized Brush and Pet-Multi Tool.

They are not only perfect for targeting those stubborn pet hairs lodged into upholstered furniture, cat trees, car interior, curtains, bedding and many more, but also great at removing all other dirt from these areas. Dust, dander and all other dirt are sent flinging inside the dirt container by the motorized brush, or for more delicate surfaces you can utilize the fantastic suction combined with Pet-Multi Tools ability of pull out pet hair and take it to the suction path.


The attachments of the Shark Rotator expand and increase the value of the overall product, allowing you to get that full, deep clean and clear air you've always wanted but still keeping the pets you've always loved.

The attachments of the Shark Rotator Powered Lift-Away TruPet include: the Hard Floor Hero, the TruePet Mini Motorized Brush, the Pet Multi-Tool, and the Duster Crevice Tool, as well as the canister caddy, and the accessories bag.
