No, it has a spinning brush that picks up the trash, it does not have any suction. I tried a battery powered vacuum sweeper and it didn't produce enough suction to do any good. This sweeper is much better.

It's more like a "sweeper." It has good suction, but didn't work well on my carpet at all. It might work well if you don't have any pets though... I have a lot of pet hair to pick up daily.

answer 10
it is a sweeper, like the things they use at restaurants, only this one is battery powered and it sucks things up to it and into it, it will pick up hair pet and human, wrapping paper chunks cat/dog dry food, cereal etc off floors and carpets... kitty litter, shake and bake... etc in seconds, TO NAME A FEW RECENT TEST I PUT IT THROUGH! LOL it's like a 100% a awesome hand vac plus a swifer dust cloth all with battery power combined and no bending and no touching the yucky stuff to dump it all! dump 3 to 4 times to run through my 1st floor of a 2500 square ft home, sometimes stop to charge 1 extra time... but that is 2 full hours of vacuuming with out getting out the heavy big real vacuum! and the kids will do it! HA! an 8 yr old will VOLUNTEER TO WATCH CARTOONS ON THE BIG SCREEN AND VACUUM and you can still HEAR the TV! had it 2 weeks.... love it gifting to mom and mom in law for Christmas! does tile in foyer and bath (actual deep crevice natural slate stone) and linoleum in kitchen and hardwood up stairs and area rugs and Berber and the pile carpet! can't ask for more! Not out of a day to day cordless sweeper to keep things tidy-ed up! with using this thing every day i only get the vacuum out 1 time on the weekend or every other weekend now! think of it... twice a month lugging the big vacuum out with this little nice guy in my life! ;-) i got a 2nd for myself so the kids can stop fighting over who gets to help next! ;-) 1 for upstairs and 1 for down! NOW ITS TIDY AND EASY AND QUICK. AND IT TAKES NO EFFORT TO PUSH THIS THING! ITS LIKE JUST WALKING GREAT FOR OLDER PEOPLE OR YOUNG KIDS!

I ordered a replacement from Amazon when the Shark company couldn't manage to get them in stock. Make sure that you've cleaned all the hair out of the sweeper and belt (remove the cover). Hair wrapped around the belt & wheels will keep it from running and make it seem like the battery isn't charging.
