Shark Rocket HV321 DeluxePro and Shark Rocket HV322 TruePet are ultra-light vacuums and in the upright/stick vacuum cleaner configuration, they weigh 8.6 pounds (~3.9 kg) without the power cord.

Their physical dimensions are (H x W x D) 47.5 x 10.25 x 13 inches (~121 x 26 x 33 cm) and thanks to the ergonomic design, lightweight design, and swivel design, both units are very maneuverable and able to reach and clean areas that are inaccessible to larger upright vacuums.

Shark Rocket HV321/HV322 are powered with 500 watts motors, offering good suction across their ~10 inches (~25 cm) wide cleaning path.

Motor features thermostat protection - if the air flow through the unit is decreased, motor temperature rises and in order to prevent any damage, thermostat will turn off the motor.

If that happens, unplug the unit, clean any blockage or clog, check the filters and let the unit cool down for at least 45 minutes.

Note: Shark Rocket HV321/HV322 vacuums are rather easy to use and maintain vacuums, but just in case, when they arrive, be sure to read the manual thoroughly.

Power cord is 30 feet (~9.15 m) long, offering the user long cleaning reach using single wall power socket.


Main cleaner head features strong LED headlights, helping the user to clean in low light conditions, for example, under the beds and sofas.

Also, main cleaner head features rotating brushroll, allowing the unit to thoroughly clean area rugs and carpets.

Brushroll can't be turned off, but the user can set two different brushroll speeds, depending on the floor type.

Brushroll does very good job on the area rugs and carpets and help the user clean deeply embedded dirt, including pet and human hair.

Note: Brushroll is not maintenance free tool and it is up to the user to periodically clean it from tangled lint, fibers, hair and similar dirt.

For the cleaning of sensitive bare floors, both models come with Hard Floor Hero Attachment, although some stores deliver units with Dust-Away Hard Floor Attachment instead of Hard Floor Hero Attachment - check before ordering.

Dirt cup is transparent, allowing the user to see amount and type of vacuumed dirt. Maximum capacity (up to the 'Max Fill Line') of the dirt cup is ~0.91 dry quarts (1 liters) which is very good capacity for the vacuum in this class.

Dirt cup features bottom dirt emptying system, allowing the user to empty the dirt directly into the trash can, without ever touching it.

post motor filterAir filtration system is based on thy cyclonic action, combined with mechanical air filters.

Pre-motor air filters are foam and felt air filters - these filters are washable and on average, it is recommended to wash them once a month.

Post-motor air filter (exhaust air filter) is also washable and it is recommended to wash it once a year.

Keeping air filters clean is very important for proper operation, so wash them regularly.

Note: washable air filters decrease the operating costs of these units. But, never operate these vacuums without the air filters or with moist/wet air filters - such use can damage the vacuums and void the 5-year limited warranties.

Shark Rocket HV321/HV322 are not standalone units and when storing them, either detach the handheld part from the wand and place it on the main cleaner head or use Wall Mount Storage Hook for storing the unit on the wall.

 Shark Rocket HV321/HV322 Cleaning Attachments

Shark Rocket HV321/HV322 come with different cleaning attachments - again, this list of cleaning attachments may vary over time/stores, so check it before ordering.

Both units feature Onboard Accessories Clip, used for storing Duster Crevice Tool and Upholstery Tool, which are thus ready to be used at the moment notice.

Hard Floor Hero Attachment is intended for vacuuming of the sensitive bare floors like hardwood, laminate and similar. Hard Floor Hero is designed to pick up both small particles of dust and other dirt, but also to be able to vacuum larger debris like dry pet food and similar.

From time to time, this cleaning attachment is replaced with Dust-Away Hard Floor Attachment, also intended for the cleaning of sensitive bare floors.

For Short: Shark Rocket HV321 DeluxePro and Shark Rocket HV322 TruePet are versatile, affordable and lightweight vacuum cleaners that easily and quickly convert from the stick vacuums to handhelds and back.
