Dragging a heavy, corded vacuum around the house can be a difficult and painstaking task. In an effort to make housekeeping easier, cordless sweepers are becoming increasingly popular. Whether you are looking for a simple and efficient sweeper, or a more powerful sweeper for advanced cleaning, the Swivel Sweeper and the Shark Sweeper are two of the most popular options available.
The Swivel Sweeper cleans carpet, tile and wood floors. The Swivel claims to pick up crumbs, dirt, pet hair and dust. The Shark Sweeper will also work on carpet, tile and wood floors. However, the Shark claims to pick up more difficult objects, such as food, nails, confetti, gravel and broken glass.
The Swivel Sweeper weighs only 2 lbs., and features four rotating brushes that sweep up dirt from all four sides. The head swivels in a complete 360-degree rotation, which allows for easy maneuvering around corners, walls and furniture. The handle extends to four feet.
The Shark Sweeper features a 13 inches, powerful, motorized brush roll, which helps pick up hair and move objects into the dust pan. The Shark also features a patented swivel technology and a long folding handle, which allows for easy maneuvering around objects.
Both the Swivel Sweeper and the Shark Sweeper feature a 7.2 volt rechargeable battery built right into the sweeper. The Swivel Sweeper battery runs up to 45 minutes on a single charge, while the Shark Sweeper battery should run for 50 minutes on a single charge.
Both sweepers feature a dust-collecting pan at the bottom of the sweeper. When this pan becomes full, it must be emptied before it can pick up more dirt. The dust pan on the Swivel Sweeper is emptied by pressing two tabs on the base of the sweeper. The dust pan on the Shark Sweeper is emptied by pushing a button on the handle.
If you're purchasing through the "As Seen On TV" website, the Shark Sweeper sold for $69.99 in 2009. The Swivel Sweeper is no longer available on the "As Seen On TV" website, but in 2009 it could be purchased through its own website for $39.98.
