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 4.7 out of 5 by 112.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from A great machine Recommended by a friend. Bought the AX950UK as on special offer and worth every penny. I have had several cleaners over the years and this is the best one I have ever had. Does everything that you would want of a cleaner. With the lift away power unit you can use it in the most awkward and the tightest of places with ease and with the light on the handle you can see into the darkest of places as well what a great idea. There are also lights on the cleaner head that light up when using it as an upright cleaner. With the lift away it is great for cleaning stairs etc. Everything about this Shark unit is interchangeable so this is a complete cleaner in one unit. Fantastic!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Versatile and effective! I bought this a few weeks ago as I have two Maine Coon cats and had a particularly rubbish vacuum cleaner. It works so well! I finally have a fur free carpet (until they start playing on it 5 minutes later anyway.) The Lift-Away feature makes stairs easy, the floor settings make it behave nicely on hard floors and rugs and it is simple to empty. Vacuuming is not one of my favourite things to have to do but at least this makes it a bit quicker. The TruePet attachment is a must for pet owners upholstery too!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing I’m absolutely delighted with this purchase. I’d vacuumed the day before with what I thought was a good vacuum. On arrival I tried it out and was amazed at how much it collected. Easy to assemble.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fantastic Purchase With Some Flaws After being a faithful customer of Dyson for many years. I had thoroughly read and watched multiple reviews prior to committing myself to switch over from my trusted 3-year-old model. Now, your most likely reading this to see if this “Shark” is worth the bait. I took a risk “if it’s not broken don’t fix it” but as many reviews stated it was one of the most superior machines some even say superior to Dyson’s brand. I was curious and took the bait. Of course, there is always going to be Pros and Cons of every product regardless of high reviews as each customer has different wants and needs. Prior to using the Shark, I vacuumed, as usual, using my Dyson Pet Cylinder. This is where I was hoping for the ”Proof” so I went over the entire room again in the same manner and area I had vacuumed previously... The mind is blown! The amount of dust and debris my faithful and trusted Dyson failed to pick up afterwards was astonishing for years I was under the impression the Dyson was the best you could get and to me gave me the best possible performance. Now, the downside, the machine is definitely on the heavier side, so I wouldn’t recommend for those who have mobility restrictions or the elderly this is due to the power of the suction particularly the backward stroke and inability of suction control manually on all Three modes (Low Pile Carpet, Hard Floor, Thick Pile Carpet And Rug) that would minimise if needed. Swapping back to the positives the versatility of the Shark is brilliant, the ability to remove the dustbin ”Lift-Away” allows you to easily use the vacuum without dragging the entire unit behind in restrictive areas with the use of the supplied attachments, integrated dusting crevice and upholstery tools though at the time of purchasing the Pet Power Brush was automatically added to my order as part of an exclusive deal at no extra charge that said, on the machine there is no available storage area for the Pet Brush so id highly recommend this is kept safe. The LED lights are located on the front and another on the handle is of great use to source out any debris that may be hidden under furniture or in lower light conditions. Though in order to effectively vacuum under low furniture the “Lift-Away” needs to be used this is essential to effectively reach under as with the dustbin attached it is rather bulky. Hopefully, you have found this somewhat helpful if this vacuum is right for you. I’m not disappointed and hopefully your not to! The loss of one star is purely based on the heaviness of the machine. I’m still very much impressed and can understand why the hype is there.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good purchase I bought this app one month ago. Initial thoughts were that it was very heavy to push around the carpet but you soon get used to this. Very easy to use and does a great job. So much easier to clean the stairs now and my 9 year old often helps which is even better.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Actually love this hoover Bought this a month ago and it is fantastic. Never ever thought I would be so excited over a hoover. I had a dyson previously and felt it was useless. The shark picks up my dogs hair (a labrador) with ease. Only negative point is that it is quite bulky for carrying up and down the stairs. Great for getting hair out of the boot also. Thoroughly reccommend to any pet owners

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best hoover I've ever had. I bought this about a month ago, I've 2 cats so my carpets always get covered in hairs and thus hoover lifts them all. It's brilliant. Bit heavy though so your arms are dead lol.
