The Shark Vertex Cordless vacuum (design IZ462H) is a extremely popular and extremely interesting maker. Shark has thrown a host of innovation at this system and it reveals. It has two brushrolls, a versatile wand, headlights, a self-cleaning brushroll, a sealed body, and more. We evaluated the various vacuum functions and also ran the Vertex through a host of cleaning tests. We were impressed in lots of methods however there were a few locations that fell a little brief.
– Swappable battery: The battery on the Vertex IZ460H series is swappable, implying that it can quickly be removed (by pushing a button) and rapidly re-attached (by just moving it back on).
– Tools fit safely: The tools all “click” into put on the end of the portable or the wand. This is a protected fit and you have to press a button to launch the tool. They will not fall off when in use. This, in our viewpoint, is a much better method than “friction fit” in which tools are pushed on and pulled off.
– Three charging lights: There are 3 charging lights developed into the side of the battery. These inform you how much charge is left on the battery and are very handy when charging or when using the vacuum. You can merely glance at the lights and know instantly approximately how much charge stays.
– At-your-fingertips controls: The controls on the vacuum are simple and easy to utilize. They are also very easy to access with your hand near the grip.
– Good run time on tough floorings: In our tests we discovered run times on our tile flooring to be practically 37 minutes in standard power mode (on a fully charged battery) and practically 18 minutes in boost power mode. Of these times were longer than the suggested times published by the maker.
– Handheld is not too heavy: Despite the general stick vacuum being a little on the heavy side, we discovered the handheld unit to be an affordable weight at 3.71 lbs. Utilizing the handheld did not tire our hand or arm.
– MultiFLEX wand: The wand will pivot at the. When bent at a 90 degree angle you can get under low furnishings without having to stoop over much. When bent at a 180 degree angle the system is able to base on its own (which it can refrain from doing otherwise) and this is a good setup for storage.
– Swivel cleaner head: The vacuum is simple to turn. By merely twisting your wrist the cleaner head can be steered.
– Low profile cleaner head: We determined the top of the cleaner head to be about 3 inches. A low profile cleaner head is handy when trying to vacuum under low furniture.
– Sealed system innovation: This makes sure that all of the air entering the vacuum gets gone through the filters. No unfiltered air leaves through poor seals. When combined with a HEPA filter which the Vertex has) for households with asthma/allergy victims, this is a crucial feature (particularly.
– Rinsable filters: The system has 2 pre-motor filters and 1 post-motor filter (HEPA). All of these are rinsable in water and can be re-used. This cuts down on consumables and eventually costs.
– Great pickup on carpet: In our carpet test the Vertex picked up practically all of the debris (at least what we could see visually). We likewise made a contrast to the Dyson V10 pickup on carpet and the Vertex was superior.
– Very great pickup on bare floorings: In our bare flooring test (tile) the Vertex did a great task of picking up debris. We have actually had this experience before with DuoClean Technology and it still does not dissatisfy on bare floorings.
– Self-cleaning brushroll works: We performed a hair test and found that the bulk of the hair wound up in the dust container (where it ought to be) and there was minimal tangle on the brushroll. While there was still some hair on the brushroll, we can certainly state that there was less than we have actually seen on other makers without this feature.

– Only one battery: While the swappable battery feature is terrific, the vacuum just comes with one battery. This negates the main benefit of having a swappable battery. , if you desire another you will have to purchase it.
– A little heavy: At about 9 pounds this is the heaviest cordless stick vacuum we’ve examined and dealt with. It is still much lighter than a lot of uprights.
– A little loud: Our noise level tests showed the Vertex cordless to be one of the louder cordless stick vacs. Much of the sound comes from the cleaner head with the two spinning brushrolls.
– Average edge cleansing: In our edge cleaning up test the Vertex did not clean up tight versus our baseboards. It left about an inch broad strip of unvacuumed location. In order to tidy up tight versus an edge one may need to utilize the crevice tool.
– Average run time on carpet: In our run time test on carpet we just got 20 minutes. We expected a bit more as the producer recommended the Vertex must get about 23 minutes. We did the test on medium pile carpet so it is possible that you would get a longer run time on lower pile carpet.
– Smallish dust cylinder: The dust canister on this vacuum is a little bit small. , if you are doing larger location cleaning you will discover yourself having to empty it frequently.. It’s okay for smaller sized location cleansing.
– Pulls forward on carpet: This is a bit nit-picky as the “pulling” isn’t significant however you can feel it. Some folks might really like this, however it does result in the unit being a little harder to pull back (combating versus the two spinning brushrolls).
In the following video we walk through all of the device features and we show the many tests that we’ve done. , if you are in the market for one of these units the video is absolutely worth a watch.
