10 amps. But the lower amps makes it lighter, and the way it is designed it actually has much more suction then my last 12 Amp vacuum (Eureka).

I had the same question, so I went to the website and then to the customer support "live chat". The person from the manufacturer said the only difference was the attachments. In fact, it has the same manual for both models.

I own two different models of the Shark vacuums - Navigator Pro - purchased in Feb 2013 and Navigator Lift-Away - purchased a week or so ago. The cleaning path, amps and attachments are the same.

The differences between the Pro and the Lift-Away:
The Lift-Away has a suction control dial, which is nice depending on what you are vacuuming. Area rugs get sucked up often with these vacuums because of their amazing power. the Lift-Away allows you to easily adjust that, so it doesn't happen.

The Lift-Away has a swivel head which makes it easier to vacuum around furniture, corners, etc. The attachments are the same on both vacuums.

I am completely sold on ANY of their vacuums and would choose them over any Dyson out there (for instance). My only problem with the two I've purchased is that the third attachment - the rotary brush for cleaning pet hair from furniture - does not have a place to store it on the machine. That just seems silly to me. With my first purchase, I tried sticking it to the machine with velcro, but that didn't work so well because of all the movement you are putting the machine through when vacuuming. But it's definitely not a deal breaker for me!! I hope this helps! :)

It has two filters that are both washable. I have owned one of these vacuums for 3 years and haven't bought any new filters yet.
answered 3 days ago
By
Al745
answer 2
The filters should outlive the rest of the machine. We suggest rinsing them regularily rather than replacing them. if you do desire extras, they are located in two areas:

1- Pre motor foam and pre motor felt filters: These sit on top of the engine and below the dustcontainer. We recommend cleaning them at last every three months. (replacements are sold together)

2- The post motor filter: in front of the machine behind the exhaust grill. We recommend cleaning that one at least once per 12 months.

No, it is not self propelled. It does have some weight to it. This may be a problem when having to pick it up. It pushes around fairly easy though.

Mine isn't. It adjusts itself. If you are doing tile or hardwood use the setting without the brush. When doing carpet use the brush setting.

It has a hook on the bottom right side of the vacuum and the top hook is one that you had to put it together before you snapped in the hose and handle piece. I am wondering if someone didn't follow the directions when putting your vacuum together and just snapped it together.

answer 2
When you assembled the vacuum, there should be two hangers on the right hand side of the vacuum. One facing up and one facing down, so that you can wrap the cord around them.
