We will show you some difference between Shark NV80 and NV356E to help you choose the better one that fits your home cleaning needs.
NV356E vs NV80
Lift Away Canister
One of the key difference between them is the Lift Away Design on the Shark Navigator Lift-Away Professional Upright NV356E which the NV80 does not feature.
The canister on the NV356E is detachable that makes it ideal for portable cleaning such as vacuuming stairs, above floor cleaning, and hard to reach areas.
Bare Floor Tool
The NV356E comes with a Dust Away Hard Floor Attachment with 2 Microfiber Pads that the Shark Navigator Professional NV80 does not include.
The Dust Away Hard Floor Attachment with the microfiber pad are designed for dry floor cleaning, it picks up and wipes away debris and particles from bare floors.
The NV356E comes with an 8-inch Crevice Tool, 24-inch Crevice Tool, Dusting Brush, and Pet Hair Power Brush.
While the NV80 comes with a 5.5-inch Crevice Tool, 16-inch Crevice Tool, Dusting Brush, and Pet Hair Power Brush.
The NV356E comes with a extension wand while the NV80 comes with a cleaning wand without handle and a cleaning wand with handle.
The handle on the NV80 is fixed while the handle on the NV356E is detachable. While doing stair cleaning and above floor cleaning with the NV356E, you can detach its handle from the vacuum body, then attach tools such as pet power brush and crevice tool to it to get the cleaning job done.
The NV356E is lighter.
Dust Cup Capacity
The NV80 has Shark’s largest dust cup that is larger than the dust cup on NV356E.
both of them have the Anti-Allergen Complete Seal Technology combined with HEPA filtration;
have the swivel steering;
motorized brush roll and shutoff;
suction release to regulate the suction power;
30-foot power cord, manual winding;
and backed by a 5 year warranty.
If you want the portable cleaning ability, then you should buy the lift away NV356E; if you like a larger dust cup, then choose the NV80 with Mega XL Capacity Dust Cup.
