In 1901, the very first vacuum cleaner was invented. It was a pretty ugly device, and it wasn’t the most practical device, either. Instead, it was very heavy, very bulky, and not particularly efficient, either.
Naturally, this design evolved. It’s been over a century since that first vacuum cleaner was invented, and today, vacuum cleaners look a lot different. And, they function a lot differently, too, since they are no longer reliant on the old mechanisms that the very first vacuums used.
Today’s vacuums use powerful motors that can conjure up a great deal of suction power, and then this suction power is combined with brushes that are made of strong fibers. With the suction power, and the brushes, vacuum cleaners can clean up almost anything, these days.
In today’s marketplace, the most popular vacuum cleaner is that of the upright cleaner. Just about every major vacuum cleaner manufacturer has put together at least one or two upright vacuums. And the reason for this is because they are popular, and they are guaranteed to make money.
Upright vacuums are the most powerful vacuums on the market, and that’s because they are incredibly powerful, and they give you a lot of different choices when it comes to how you clean – due to the accessories and settings that they offer – and what you clean with them. Many of the newer vacuums lack this power and versatility, but they have something that most upright vacuums don’t have: mobility.
Unfortunately, most upright vacuums are heavy. Heavy and bulky. Moving them around and using them to vacuum smaller and tighter spaces isn’t the most feasible choice, for a lot of the upright vacuums on the market, and as a result of this, many people are moving away from upright vacuums, although they provide many benefits.
Due to the developments that vacuum cleaners have been experiencing, though, some manufacturers are now developing upright vacuums that are much smaller and more mobile.
We’re going to look at two of those vacuum cleaners, today. The Shark Rotator, and the Dyson Ball Multi Floor 2. Each one of these upright vacuums is thin and light, while also being very powerful, and you’re going to learn what they offer, and what makes them great!
What Does The Shark Rotator Offer?
With the Shark Rotator, you have a vacuum that consists of a single main component. This is the canister. You can pick up this canister, and detach it from the main vacuum, and then you can use this canister within smaller spaces and more compact areas, where the main Shark Rotator vacuum won’t fit.
Shark has spent a lot of time and energy on making this a mobile upright vacuum, and they have succeeded. Part of this is due to the canister that you can detach, which does make it a lot easier to move the vacuum into smaller spaces. But, there is also the fact that the vacuum only weighs fifteen-pounds, which is quite light.
For bare floors, you will use the Hard Floor Hero, which is the mechanism Shark has developed for cleaning bare floors. It’s efficient and very good at removing dirt, dust, and smaller pieces of debris that happen to be on those floors.
If you are cleaning carpeted floors, though, then you are going to be using the TruePet Motorized Brush. This is a brush that has been designed to clean all surfaces, so you could use it on bare floors. With this particular brush, you can get rid of all of the dirt and dust that is on thicker surfaces, because the Hard Floor Hero isn’t that great at cleaning those kinds of surfaces.
Using these two mechanisms gives you a lot of freedom. You can more effectively vacuum on hard floors, and soft floors, and when this is combined with the powerful suction that Shark has provided, you get a vacuum that is powerful and very flexible, when it comes to what you clean and how you clean it.
You can switch from these two mechanisms by pressing a switch, which is on the handle of the vacuum itself.
Ultimately, if you want something powerful and efficient, the Shark Rotator is a very nice choice!
What Does The Dyson Ball Multi Floor 2 Offer?
Weighing 15.6 pounds, the Dyson Ball Multi Floor 2 isn’t as light as the Shark Rotator, but it’s still pretty light.
Part of this weight comes from the ball technology that Dyson has used. So, this ball is near the bottom of the vacuum, right above the cleaner head. And, this ball allows you to adjust the handle in any direction you want, making it significantly easier to move the vacuum in all kinds of different spaces.
The mobility and flexibility of this vacuum is unparalleled.
Using the Dyson Ball Multi Floor 2, you can clean all kinds of different floors. You can clean carpets, rugs, floors made of hardwood, tile, vinyl, stone, and on and on. And, part of the reason you can do this is because the cleaner head adjusts itself, depending on the floor you are on. It adjusts itself so that it can provide the ideal amount of suction.
If you need to clean spaces that are smaller or more closed-off, or even spaces that are relatively high-up, you can do that, too. You can take out the wand, and the long-reach hose, by releasing them with the press of a little button. Then, you can use these two mechanisms for cleaning on the ceiling, on the walls, or underneath your couch.
One of the last things to note is that Dyson gives you a five-year warranty with this vacuum. That’s a great warranty, and if anything happens, you can send it to Dyson, and they’ll fix it for you.
Ultimately, the Dyson Ball Multi Floor 2 is an excellent upright vacuum that, while a little expensive, is a great value!
