Shark Navigator Lift-Away Deluxe NV360, Reviewed By Engineers
If you’re looking for honest technical critics of the new Shark Navigator Lift-Away Deluxe NV360 upright vacuum, you’re in the right place.
We turned to our engineering team for a deep dive, dissecting this blue Shark vacuum to see where it can improve because even the best can be better.
In shark nv360, you’ll learn the caveats of owning one, tips and tricks on its tools, and some useful workarounds.

The Shark Navigator Lift-Away Deluxe NV360 retains the essential build elements of the classic NV352. It’s a lightweight and compact vacuum with a streamlined design to highlight the Lift-Away feature.
But it also has the same deadly ‘downfall’ of the 3-hundred series: this Shark vacuum easily tips forward.
The unbalance is a dealbreaker for many. The constant front-facing collapse will cause severe damages to the dust cup and the motor. We don’t think it’s a well-worth tradeoff for less weight.
Ironically, this could mean you’ll save money keeping the NV360 in storage rather than putting it to use, particularly if you have playful kids and pets.
There’s nothing novel about the Deluxe NV360’s overall construction compared to the 10-year-old NV352. But we must say, if you’re looking for an affordable upgrade, the NV360 is a great upright vacuum cleaner at its price range.
Cleaning Power and Filters
We don’t have much to complain about the Shark navigator NV360 motor, besides the fact that it's not the superior, more expensive Powered Lift-Away motor.
The motor alone performs incredibly well, providing high suction power, which you can leak off by dialing the handle’s control collar.
It has three filters, including a post-motor, Anti Allergen Complete Seal Technology - integrated HEPA filter.
The NV360 works well on a bare floor and low-pile carpet but underwhelmingly on mid to thick- pile carpet due to the average suction delivery.
We also noticed it picked up dust and small debris slightly better than it does larger sized debris.
The Shark Navigator Lift-Away NV360 comes with a brush-roll floor head, two attachments, and a 25-ft (7.6m) long power cord.
We aren’t the biggest fan of this package. But for the price, it’s reasonable and enough to cover the basic vacuuming jobs.
We found we needed a power extension to maximize the Lift-Away function, with which you can carry the detached canister and motor in one hand and clean with the handle on the other.
We found the NV360 easy to maneuver thanks to the swivel steering feature on the floor head, but it doesn’t turn that sharply. We wasted time making a smooth but big U-turn, which we can efficiently do with other models.
The biggest letdown is the attachments. The Shark Lift-Away Deluxe vacuum comes with only one crevice tool and one upholstery tool.
They won’t serve a wide application range for two reasons. First, there’s no dusting brush, the basic attachment in many vacuum kits.
And second, the tools are not powered, meaning a suction power deficiency compared to the Powered Lift-Away series.
These tools are friction fitted, meaning they’ll suffer considerable wear and tear from constant yanking.
Shark could have done a better job adapting a button-lock mechanism to the NV360, like their other upright vacuums.
Our engineers think Shark Navigator Lift Away Deluxe Nv360 upright vacuum would serve best in a small home, taking care of the daily housekeeping tasks.
Is it the best vacuum? Yes, for how budget-friendly it is. So, what do you think? Let us know in the comment section below!
