Versatile Cleaning

Detach the extended reach wand to clean ceilings, curtains and light fittings. Handy accessories help clean surfaces, edges and hard-to-reach crevices. LED lights help illuminate concealed dust.

Bigger floorhead, bigger capacity.

Discover how easy whole-home cleaning can be with the Shark Powered Lift-Away Upright Vacuum Cleaner with DuoClean.

Featuring two innovative technologies, developed by Shark’s in-house engineers, this versatile upright vacuum cleaner is home to our largest ever dust cup with Powered Lift-Away. Experience the freedom to clean more between empties.

Now in an even bigger size, our DuoClean floorhead features two unique motorised brush rolls, letting you clean across carpets and hard floors without stopping or changing heads.

How does DuoClean work? A soft, velvet-like brush roll replaces the floorhead’s front wall, making direct contact with floors. Rather than pushing dirt away, it actively draws in large and small debris and removes fine, stuck-on dust from hard floors. The second bristle bar gets deep into the carpet pile to draw out embedded dirt.

Struggling to vacuum stairs? Powered Lift-Away sets you free. Simply detach the main unit from the wand at the press of a button, turning your upright into a portable vacuum cleaner which comfortably cleans stairs, sofas, curtains and easily reaches under furniture without heavy lifting.

Rather than relying on suction alone, power is continually delivered to the larger floorhead, meaning the motorised brush rolls consistently rotate and draw in dirt, even in portable mode.

Suffer from allergies? Shark’s Anti-Allergen Complete Seal captures and traps 99.9% of dust and allergens inside the vacuum, not releasing them back into the air you breathe.*

We love making your life easier. LED headlights help illuminate dust and pet hair in dark corners, while swivel steering, extended reach and a selection of time-saving attachments including Upholstery and Crevice Tools make it easy to clean curtains, ceilings, soft furnishings and high shelving.

Giving you confidence in our products, we offer an additional manufacturer’s warranty of up to five years upon registration with Shark.

Shark DuoClean Powered Lift-Away XL Upright Vacuum Cleaner AX950UK is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 32.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from The dog hair buster I bought this after a frustrating session vacuuming with my Dyson Animal DC33. Over and over the same spot and still leaving hairs behind. And yes I had clean filter in the DC33. After doing some online research I bought the Shark AX905UK. I have 3 big dogs and wanted the best vacuum for dog hair. The Shark didn’t disappoint. It’s in a different league to before and I’m delighted at how good it is. One or two passes over any piece of carpet leaves it hair free. Only word of warning is that this is a heavy to operate machine as it sucks so well on the carpet. But this is the price to pay to get brilliant cleaning.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great machine Plenty power and suction. Overall I am pleased with my purchase, although I would recommend purchasing a couple of spare filter sets, as filters definitely need cleaning more often than the recommended once a month. I clean mine after every use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Took a bit of getting used to Bought after seeing recommendations on a horsey forum as best vacuum for a rural house with lots of animals,hay,mud etc... This vacuum is great I love the lights in the front and the wand for dark corners, once I had figured out all the different combinations and ways of using it it is fantastic and easy to use,on lots of different surfaces, I have Yorkshire stone /wood / tiles and carpet, the lift away part for doing the stairs and high up is great I want to get a hard floor attachment for the end of the hose but we’re out of stock better than other vacuums I have had ( Dyson and Miele ) it feels well made and sturdy but time will tell, ask me in 12 months which is how long a vacuum usually lasts in my house hurrah for the warrantee !

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Powerful Great Hoover, really powerful suction. Tools all placed in convenient spot. Only one downside for me , a bit heavy, A struggle to push around.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fan dabby dozy Our last vacuum cleaner was a dyson hand stick which was quite good but used to frustrated at the size of the bin, so the other week whilst my daughter was on holiday, I borrowed her shark 801 to see what all the fuss that she was making, and I must say I was well impressed was an understatement this machine is unbelievable, we used to the dyson daily we emptied the vac bin 7 times and the shark bin was double the size of the dyson, also our carpets looked like they had been cleaned with how the pile was lifted I fell a lot of thought as gone into this vacuum and in my eyes puts dyson out of it also the 5 year guarantee is a big piece of mind. Needless to say I purchased one the very same day.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best vacuum I’ve ever used I’m in love with my new vacuum! At first I thought it was quite heavy, but when I realised how easy it is to manoeuvre I was sold! It’s so powerful too, and picks up bits deeply ingrained in the carpet. Great suction (even when it’s full) which leaves stripes in the carpets. Easy to switch between carpet and hard floors. I haven’t tried all the attachments and features yet but I’m sure I won’t be disappointed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better than i thought it would be, Great Hoover, lovely design, looks really good . It is very practical and quite light too. Amazing on my deep pile rug in the hallway, with the rotating brush working its magic you could hear the debris it was picking up that my old hoover just couldn't get hold of and that was a pretty decent hoover but nothing on this, then when you detach the lift-away box it really comes into its own i think. Being able to go behind furniture with the led light on the handle it shows where all the dust is so saves having to move things so much. Not forgetting the noise, it doesn't really have any, it is so quiet, must be one of the quietest on the market. Cannot praise this hoover enough, well done Shark.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great vacuum We purchased this to replace a Kirby G5 which was our 2nd Kirby. We found nothing could match the Kirbys for picking up dog hairs until we read about the Shark vacuums. After a bit of research we decided on the above model and have not been disappointed. It is much lighter than the Kirby and dare I say it picks up hair as good if not better. We will be keeping the aged Kirby just for the shampooing functionability. We are more than pleased with our Shark purchase and fully recommend it.
