The Shark Rotator Powered Lift Away is full size while the DuoClean Speed is compact size.
What makes the full size bulkier is mainly because of the bigger lift away pod and the wider cleaning path width. The Rotator has a dust container holds up to 1.5 dry quarts while the DuoClean Speed has a dust cup capacity of 0.9 dry quarts. The Rotator cleaning path width is 10.5 inches versus 8.5 inches on the DuoClean Speed. The Rotator weighs about 16.7 lbs while the DuoClean Spead weighs 14.5 lbs.
The DuoClean Speed has 2 brusrolls – a bristle brush to clean carpets, and a soft brushroll to pull in particles and clean hard floors. While the Rotator has only bristle brushroll. When cleaning any blockage, the brushrolls on the DuoClean Speed can be removed while the Rotator brushroll is not removable.
Hard Floor Cleaning Mode
Both of them have 3 preset cleaning modes – Thick Carpet/Area Rug, Carpet/Low Pile, Hard Floor. When setting to Hard Floor mode, the DuoClean Speed brushrolls still spins slowly while the Rotator brushroll does not spin. That means the DuoClean Spead does not allow you use suction only while using the powered nozzle.
The DuoClean Speed has lights on the nozzle while the Rotator has lights on nozzle and handle, the LED lights on handle is helpful when cleaning with the accessories for above floor cleaning, especially cleaning those dark spots.
Power Button Location
The DuoClean Speed has the power switch on the vacuum pod while the Rotator has the power button on the handle.
Both of these two series vacuum cleaners have detachable vacuum pod for portable cleaning, features swivel steering, Anti-Allergen Complete Seal Technology and a HEPA filter to trap dust and allergens inside the vacuum.
