Shark IZ462H Vertex DuoClean PowerFins Features and Specifications

Shark IZ462H Vertex DuoClean PowerFins comes with several latest Shark cleaning technologies, including Vertex/hypervelocity suction power, DuoClean PowerFins, MultiFLEX cleaning wand, Anti-Allergen Complete Seal, removable high-capacity lithium battery, etc.

The unit can be easily converted from the stick to handheld vacuum and back - when in stick mode, Shark IZ462H Vertex weighs 9.04 pounds (~4.3 kg) with the most weight being on the floor.

Shark IZ462H Vertex DuoClean PowerFins comes with a 25.2-volt lithium battery which requires 3 hours to get fully charged. 

When the unit arrives, the battery is not fully charged for safety reasons - before the very first use, be sure to charge the battery completely.

When the battery is at 100% charge, Shark IZ462H Vertex features:

- handheld vacuum only mode: approximately 60 minutes,

- handheld vacuum only with BOOST mode: approximately 10 minutes,

- Bare Floor mode: approximately 34 minutes,

- Bare Floor mode with BOOST: approximately 10 minutes,

- Carpet mode: approximately 23 minutes,

- Carpet mode with BOOST: approximately 10 minutes.

Obviously, when the BOOST is turned ON, suction is excellent, but the runtime is decreased down to ~10 minutes.

The battery can be charged while connected to the unit, or it can be charged while being out of the unit - this allows the user to purchase, if required, another battery, practically doubling the runtime.

Shark IZ462H Vertex comes with a DuoClean PowerFins main cleaner head which features two different brushrolls that work in unison, improving the cleaning effect, regardless of the type of cleaned surface.

The first brushroll is a soft one, optimized for picking up both small and large dirt particles, especially from the bare floors. The second brushroll features flexible fins (so-called PowerFins) that ensure constant contact with the cleaned surface, deeply cleaning carpets and area rugs, and picking up various types of dirt.

DuoClean PowerFins main cleaner head also features 10.63 inches (~27 cm) wide cleaning path that allows the user to quickly and relatively easily clean larger areas, including various types of bare floors and carpeted areas.

In order to help with the maintenance, Shark IZ462H Vertex main cleaner head features self-cleaning brushroll technology, greatly reducing hair and lint wrap, which simplifies maintenance and in the long run, saves plenty of time and effort.

 Strong LED headlights help the user spot the dirt and help with cleaning in low-light conditions.

Due to its low profile, swivel neck, lightweight design, Shark IZ462H is a very maneuverable unit, allowing the main cleaner head to easily slide under most beds and sofas, under and around furniture, to clean along the walls, to easily transition between different floor types, etc.

The cleaning wand is detachable, ensuring quick conversion from the stick to the handheld vacuum and back. Also, the wand features so-called MultiFlex technology, allowing the user to easily clean under the beds, sofa, furniture, and similar, without too much bending.

MultiFLEX technology also ensures easy and compact storage.

The dirt cup is transparent, allowing the user to see the type and amount of vacuumed dirt. Its capacity is 0.34 quarts and thanks to the bottom-emptying system, it can be emptied quickly, directly into the trashcan, without the user ever touching the dirt.

Shark IZ462H Vertex DuoClean PowerFins comes with Anti-Allergen Complete Seal - the whole unit is designed and built to prevent vacuumed air from escaping the unit before being completely filtered. Although Shark doesn't specify the exact HEPA level of Shark IZ462H Vertex air filtration, air filtration is very good, which is very important not only to people having issues with asthma and allergies. 

Air filters are washable - pre-motor foam and felt air filters should be washed every month and HEPA post-motor exhaust air filter should be washed once a year. Before assembling them back into the unit, be sure that the air filters are completely dry.

Note: Shark IZ462H comes with many features, but it is nonetheless rather simple to use and maintain vacuum cleaner. But, when it arrives, be sure to read the Owner's Guide in order to get accustomed to Your new vacuum cleaner.

Shark IZ462H Vertex Cleaning Tools and Attachments

In order to improve cleaning, Shark IZ462H Vertex comes with several cleaning tools, including:

crevice tool

- Crevice Tool is a long and narrow cleaning tool, allowing the user to clean gaps, edges, corners, and similar surfaces.

pet multi tool

- Pet Multi-Tool combines Pet Upholstery Tool and Dusting Brush, helping the user to deeply clean pet hair, pet dander, lint, and other types of dirt from upholstery, pet beds, stairs, car seats, etc.

anti alergen dusting brush

- Anti-Allergen Dusting Brush is used to thoroughly clean dust, pollen, and other very fine particles from various surfaces - as the brush glides over the surface being cleaned, brush bristles agitate the dirt which is then being vacuumed via strong suction.

Other cleaning tools and attachments may be ordered later if required.

Some of the very interesting but rather specialized cleaning tools include the 18" Flexi Crevice Tool, Multi-Angle Dusting Brush, Deep-Cleaning Motorized Pet Tool, MultiFLEX Under-Appliance Wand, and similar.
