The Shark Rotator Powered Lift Away NV650 (NV651, NV652) is the latest Shark Rotator upright model.
This Rotator model has some new design features that are different from the Pro version.
One of the biggest difference is that the motorized nozzle on the Powered model can be attached to the wand when using the lift away pod mode. And because of its low profile, it is able to get under beds, coffee tables, couches, etc. This is something that the Pro model cannot do.
Shark NV552 vs NV652
The Shark Rotator Powered model has the controls on the handle for fingertip reach. While the Rotator Pro model has the controls on the top of the vacuum.
The Shark Rotator Powered model has 3 settings including Hard Floor, Carpet/Low Pile, and Thick Carpet/Area Rug.
While the Rotator Pro model has suction only mode for bare floor cleaning and brushroll on mode with auto height adjustment for cleaning carpet/area rugs.
The image below might be helpful in understanding the difference:
The Rotator Powered model has not only LED headlights but also LED lights on the handle to illuminate low light areas, while the Rotator Pro has no lights on the handle.
Dust Cup Capacity
According to the Shark Customer Support, the Powered model has a dust cup with larger capacity.
The Rotator Powered model features Shark’s patented E-Hose that has power running through the hose to activate the motorized nozzle or the TruePet Mini Motorized Brush tool while the hose on the Rotator Pro runs suction powered attachments.
Pet Hair Tool
Along with the Rotator Powered model, Shark introduce a new brush accessory, the TruePet Mini Motorized Brush, that is motorized, while the Pro model uses a power brush tool which is suction driven.
Other included accessories are slightly different.
(Not all Rotator Powered versions include the TruePet attachment.)
According to Shark, the Powered model features advanced swivel steering which make the vacuum easier to maneuver than previous Shark vacuum cleaners.
