Shark and Dyson are two brands in the manufacture of vacuum cleaners that are leaving a mark in the market, thanks to their diversity in the products they provide. Both brands have vacuum cleaners that promise performance without clogging and losing suction. Furthermore, they can be used on floors that are carpeted and those not carpeted.
In this comparison of Shark vs Dyson vacuums, you will find that both brands utilize the same technology such as the use of bagless containers for collecting dust and dirt. Their vacuum designs share other similar features, such as a switch for choosing whether you want the brush to move if you are vacuuming carpets or you want it to remain stationary for floors without carpets.
However, the main difference is seen in the pricing, with the Dyson vacuum cleaners being more expensive than the Shark. They are also heavier. Sharks vacuum cleaners also have a shorter power cord, but they are also lighter.
Another difference is in their warranty; the main Dyson models have a 5-year warranty, yet the Sharks have 7-year warranty on their main models. Dyson’s cordless models carry a 2-year warranty while Shark’s lightweight Rocket models come with 5 years. Although Shark is the clear winner on warranty duration it should be noted that Dyson’s warranty is also much longer than with most other vacuum cleaner brands.
