When it comes to buying a new vacuum cleaner, there’s no shortage of types to choose from.
Whether you prefer a corded or cordless model, traditional upright or lightweight stick, different types of vacuum are perfect for different homes and people.
At Shark, we recently unveiled an exciting new collection of bagless cylinder vacuum cleaners featuring all the Shark technologies you know and love. But what are the benefits of a cylinder vacuum cleaner? Is it right for your home? And which is the best cylinder vacuum cleaner for you?
What is a cylinder vacuum cleaner?
Cylinder vacuum cleaners are designed to be pulled along as you clean, which some people prefer to pushing along an upright.
What type of home would a Shark cylinder vacuum suit?
Our cylinders are designed to be used on both carpets and hard floors, with adjustable cleaning and suction modes.
If you have a mixture of floor types throughout your home, you might like DuoClean (available on the CZ500UKT model) which has two motorised brush-rolls working together in one floorhead – a bristle brush-roll cleans deep into carpets, while a second soft brush-roll draws in debris and lifts stuck-on dust from hard floors. No need
Hair is a part of every home – whether you have pets or long-haired family members, Anti Hair Wrap Technology (available on the CZ250UKT and CZ500UKT models) removes hair from the brush-roll as you clean, helping to keep it tangle-free.
What makes Shark cylinder vacuum cleaners different?
All cylinder vacuums in Shark’s range feature Dynamic Technology, an innovative combination of 3 elements – 175 air watts of powerful suction* in an extra-lightweight 4kg pod design, precision engineered to achieve streamlined movement and optimum balance that’s robust on floors and light enough to lift, with smooth-glide 360° pivot wheels for ultimate agility.
While many cylinder vacuums are either too heavy or too light, making them harder to steer and prone to tipping over, Shark cylinders move in perfect sync with you, so you can easily manoeuvre around obstacles and cruise from room to room. The pod follows so closely, you’ll forget it’s there.
The CZ250UKT and CZ500UKT models also feature Flexology, a clever flexible wand that bends to easily reach under furniture and folds down for compact storage.
Which is the best cylinder vacuum for homes with pets?
For more than floors, Shark cylinder vacuums are great for cleaning stairs, soft furnishings and up high – rest assured that the perfectly weighted pod will remain stable on the ground while you clean around your home. Every model comes with an Anti Hair Wrap Pet Tool, easily removing embedded pet hair from stairs, sofas and upholstery.
Offering extra reassurance for allergy suffers, Shark’s Anti-Allergen Complete Seal captures and traps 99.9% of dust and allergens inside the vacuum, not releasing them back into the air you breathe**.
