Shark’s New Lift-Away has Powerfin Prowess: The ZD201

Shark has recently added a new release to its Lift-Away line, the Shark ZD201 upright vacuum. This new model blends a unique combination of Shark’s lift-away technology and a single self-cleaning Powerfins brushroll.

A Main Attraction: Powerfins

Shark presents the ZD201 Lift-away as effective on both carpets and hard floors. The Powerfins brush roll agitates carpets and creates a seal on hard floors for efficient debris pickup. Additionally, the Powerfins brush roll also resists hair tangles, making this vacuum a considerable option for homes with pets or residents with long hair.

In past Vacuum Wars product reviews we have found that Shark’s self-cleaning Powerfins brush rolls effectively resists hair tangles. For example, these reviews include the Shark ZU782 and Shark LA502.

Lift-Away Technology: A Closer Look

Shark’s Lift-Away feature, a staple in its vacuum designs, allows for the detachment of the canister from the main unit to facilitate cleaning in difficult-to-reach areas. Moreover, this design provides users with the flexibility to transition from an upright vacuum to a handheld mode, thus addressing a wide range of cleaning tasks.

In past Vacuum Wars product reviews we have found Shark’s lift-away technology to be helpful in numerous household cleaning tasks. For example, these reviews include the Shark Stratos and Shark Vertex.

The Shark ZD201 upright vacuum incorporates several features aimed at enhancing user experience:

  • Maneuverability: Achieved through swivel steering and a lightweight design, allowing for easier navigation around obstacles.
