The Shark Rocket weighs less than eight pounds and can extend to reach the ceiling or far underneath the sofa. Pop off the extensible wand and the stick vacuum becomes a compact handheld for cleaning inside a car or reaching tight spots. The deep-cleaning head gets right into the dirt in carpets and rugs.
Of course, the Shark Rocket is also good for bare floors, and its swivel steering lets you easily get around furniture and corners. Meanwhile, its 30-foot power cord means you can reach anywhere in the house — and even out to the driveway.
Also included are a pet-hair multi-tool, a five-inch crevice tool and a wand for getting under large appliances such as washing machines, refrigerators and dishwashers.
