Shark Rotator specs and features table.

Like many are you slightly confused over the differences in the 500 series shark rotator professional liftaway NV500 series vacuum cleaners? If so, this comparison guide comparing the NV500, NV501 and NV502 will detail all the differences between the shark vacuum cleaners. You can actually see straight away what the variations are amongst the models from the comparison table I have draw up just below.

So as you can see from the table below, the actual vacuum cleaner -- the Shark Rotator Professional lift away doesn't actually change, the quality vacuum design & high functioning suction performance is exactly the same in the entire NV500 series (you can actually see the design of the vacuum is identical throughout the amazon elements -- there's a table of the specs just above).

All that changes between the NV500, NV501 and NV502 is what Shark components, tools and attachments come with it -- that is where the distinction lies between them.

Hence, as you might have expected there are no real big variations between them, all in truth.

A comparison table of the Shark rotator pro lift away vacuums: NV500, NV501 & NV502.

So there is a set of accessories that comes with every Shark Rotator vacuum:

i. The Multi Tool (also referred to as the multi angle dusting brush) -- that is basically your go to cleaning brush for versatile use across your home.

ii. The Flexi Crevice tool -- to help you extend your cleaning reach around awkward gaps and spaces (e.g. behind and under sofas).

iii. Straight Nozzle - for standard cleaning, comes particularly useful for cleaning carpeted or wooden stairs.

iv. Standard Power Brush - this tool has been designed with the intention of effective pick up of pet hair in-and-around your home.

Now this is where the main difference between the NV500 series vacuums start and the best way to make this clear is to do a comparison one on one with each vacuum.

Shark NV500 Vs NV501

Between these two vacuums they both have an extensive cord length of 30 ft as well as the accessories mentioned above in common (and of course the actual Rotator vacuum). However, the NV501 also comes with a premium power brush (which is basically like a turbo brush that is used for cleaning particularly tough and dirty patches across flooring) as well as a multi angle dusting brush (a conveniently shaped tool that can help you clean the tops of shelves, book cases without having to get stairs out etc.).

Shark NV500 Vs NV502

Again, the same applies from the above comparison, they have the same cord length and standard set of accessories. However, the NV502 also comes with the premium power brush but also a car detail kit (basically a set of accessories that help you with cleaning the inside of car easily).

Shark NV501 Vs NV502

The only real difference between the NV501 and NV502 is that the car detail kit is just for the NV502 and the Multi angle dusting brush comes with the NV501 -- although in the car detail kit you get a somewhat similar tool to the multi-angled brush anyway. So overall from this, the NV502 is the best 500 series vacuum from this range.

Which Shark Rotator Should You Buy?

Basically just make an assessment over which accessories you would find useful and which you wouldn't, given your situation, relate it to the price and there should be a model that sticks out for you. If you are unsure I would just go with the NV502 model, that way you have more than likely not got every single tool you need and the price difference between them all (if you are up to a bit of savvy type shopping) isn't actually that great. You might find you even want to 'up another level' and check out the Shark NV552.

The only reason the Lift Away Rotator is blue is because this model is the NV503, exact same specs except of course it is blue and is pretty much gets the same gear as the NV500 apart from the straight suction nozzle & canister caddy and instead has a dust away with pad. Moreover, make sure you compare the Shark Rotator versus Navigator to see whether any of the older models might take your fancy.
