I'm the person who asked this question. I got the vac and it works great on hard floors. You can turn on and off the brush. However, i took it back because i got the navigator which is the same quality as the navigator lift away.

The best attachment is the turbo pet brush. It even sounds like it is turbo. I have a long haired cat and I didn't clean for six months because I hurt my back. Well my blue couch was now white. I tried the brush and all the hair came up. I even tried some tape and there wasn't any hair left. They also have a normal dust brush and one crevace tool. Plus an extension. Tv model has two crevace tools which is no big deal. You can always buy more from the manufacturer.

The 351 vacuum is identical in every way to the 351. The ONLY difference is in the attachments. The 351 comes with a 8" crevice tool and the 351 comes with a 24" crevice tool. Both come with a turbo brush (great for pet hair) and a dust brush. Other tools are also available for these models at the manufacture's site at a much lower price than you'll find with any other brand.

I was told this model is different than the tv model and this is true. However they confused the pre and post motor filters. There are these lifetime pre foam filters you clean every three months. Then the post motor hepa filter. I verified this in the manual. I think you clean that one once a year. One big difference with hepa type vacuum is that this one is a sealed unit and the air actually goes through the filter. If you put a bright light next to it when u vacuum something dirty you won't see any dust come out. I have bad asthma and I checked.

Question

Does it suck up cat litter?

I have hardwood floors, 3 cats and 2 huge litter boxes. I'm sick and tired of buying vacuum after vacuum trying to find one that doesn't shoot cat litter all over the floor rather than sucking it up. Does the Navigator LiftAway actually suck up cat litter?

answer 2
Yes, this vacuum picks up cat litter. The reason the others shoot it all over the place is because the roller pushes it around. This vacuum cleaner gives you a button that turns off the roller brush when you are doing bare floors, wood floors, tiles, etc. What this means is that when you vacuum cat litter and other debris the roller brush is not spinning so it will not shoot it all over the place and will allow the suction to pick it up. And this vacuum has great suction since it has a separate motor just for the suction.

Yes! We have a cat and just bought this vacuum a few weeks ago. It's worked wonderfully. We have carpet and hardwood flooring, and it's great on both.
I was weary at first when reading some reviews that mentioned the "exhaust" is right on the front of the vacuum; but when you use it, it's tilted and obviously you're not going to push it back and forth in the upright position. So the exhaust blows up, and doesn't blow the cat food/litter around the floor.
The suction is amazing on both surfaces. On our carpets especially, I was surprised how many little tiny granules of litter it was picking up. On our hardwood floors, we don't need a broom anymore because this works so well.

Pretty sure this is the exact same one. I've looked around and Walmart has it the cheapest. From Shark you can only buy it with the steam mop which is why it's 199 (a deal if you want the steam mop I guess but if you just want the vacuum, get it from Walmart).
