What’s the difference between Shark CZ351 vs CZ2001?

The main difference between Shark Vertex Canister Vacuum CZ2001 and Shark Pet Canister Bagless Corded Vacuum CZ351 is the brushroll system.

The CZ351 uses Powerfins whereas the CZ2001 uses DuoClean Powerfins.

The Powerfins uses flexible silicone fins to replace the traditional bristle. According to Shark, the Powerfins provides continuous cleaning contact, digging deep into carpets and directly engaging floors; it is designed to pick up more with less hair wrap problem when compared to bristle brush, and unlike a standard bristle brushroll, there are no gaps, thus less dirt may be missed.

The DuoClean Powerfins has one more roller in the nozzle, so the DuoClean Powerfins system has two rollers, a Soft Roller and the Powerfins Roller, work together in the nozzle.
The soft roller helps pull in large particles and fine dust without pushing them away, gives a polished look on floors.

Other difference is the color and price.

The CZ351 is Navy & Silver whereas the CZ2001 is Black & Copper.
The CZ351 is cheaper than the CZ2001.

Shark WV200UK vs WV251UK what’s the difference?

The difference between the Shark WV200UK(Single Battery) and WV251UK(Twin Battery) Cordless Handheld Vacuum Cleaners are the Charging Dock design and Battery design.

  • The charging dock designs are different.
    The Shark WV200UK charging dock has two slots for the included Duster Crevice Tool and Multi-Surface Pet Tool.
    Whereas the WV251UK charging base has only one slot for one of the tools, because the second battery also stores on the charging dock, and this takes up the space that is used on the WV200UK to hold the second accessory.
    So, there is no place to store both tools on the charging dock of WV251UK.
    (Both of them come with two accessories.)
  • Battery designs are also different.
    The WV251UK battery has release tabs on the battery
    cap for easy swapping.
    Whereas the WV200UK battery does not have the release tabs, you will need to use coins as suggested in the battery removal and installation instructions to help remove the battery.
    So, the battery design on the WV200UK (single battery version) is not something that you can buy a second battery and use it like the WV251UK (twin battery version).
    But if you still want to do that, yes, it can be done, just requires a bit more work.
