Meet Shark’s evolved Lift-Away® upright vacuum, LA500WM. Its Lift-Away Technology, now with an even lighter pod, lets you Lift Away the pod with an easy-release pedal. Hold the pod in one hand, and use the hose to clean tough areas above the floor, like stairs, furniture, and more. This lightweight upright vacuum also features DuoClean® PowerFins®: a PowerFins roller and a soft roller combine on all floors, for continuous cleaning contact. Dig deep into carpets, directly engage floors, and pick up more in every pass (vs. original DuoClean®). Inside the nozzle is a self-cleaning brushroll that delivers powerful pet hair pickup with no hair wrap. At the pod, Shark uses Anti-Allergen Complete Seal Technology® with HEPA filtration. It traps 99.9% of dust and allergens inside the vacuum (based on ASTM F1977 of particles .3 microns or larger). For easy maneuverability on carpets and floors, this Lift-Away has advanced swivel steering, and LED headlights on the nozzle illuminate hidden debris around your home.
