Shark is a well-known company notable for manufacturing well-crafted vacuum cleaners. They have currently diversified their product range by incorporating the modern technologies with the latest introduction to their product line being the Shark ION Robot vacuum cleaners. This new model has a sleek design with a circular shape. The body has an elegant appearance which is either matte grey or light grey with a black finish.

The Shark ION Robot Vacuum R75 contains the latest technological features. It comes with a working smartphone app which enables you to control your schedule without restraint. This robot vacuum cleaner is compatible with Google Home, Android or iPhone, and Amazon Alexa.

What the Shark Ion R75 is about

The Shark ION Robot Vacuum R75 features 3 buttons on the top. The center button is visibly the clean button, while the other two buttons are the Dock button and Max respectively. The robot vacuum cleaner can easily transition from bare floors to low pile carpet owing to its grip wheels.

In addition, it ensures there’s no mess while using which is attributed to its quick-release dustbin container which can be easily emptied. It has a sturdy weight of 5.5 pounds, a 12.6-inch case, and a height of 2.6 inches with rubber-grip side wheels

Brush Roll and Side Brushes

Equipped with dual side fitted brushes, the Shark ION Robot Vacuum R75’s efficiency has been increased tenfold! Moreover, the vacuum cleaner has an additional main brush roll which is self-cleaning thus easy to maintain it. These brushes make the vacuum cleaner less likely to get entangled by objects like hair making it proficient for removing dirt from baseboards, corners or even bread crumbs by pulling the dirt into the suction vent as the brushes whirl at a speedy pace.

The brushes agitate the debris which gets sucked by the powerful airflow created by the motor right into the bin lying on the back of the vacuum cleaner. The main brush roll bristles are also high tensile and arranged in a helix pattern while the 2 side brushes bristles are variable in length. These different provisions collectively allow the vacuum cleaner to pick up dirt particles in a more adept manner.

Suction and Cleaning Power

The Shark ION Robot Vacuum R75 has a great cleaning power thanks to its motor and battery. Its suction power is estimated to be at 1000pa meaning it has a great capability to vacuum hard floors such as linoleum, marble, tiles and wooden floors. It can also perfectly clean low pile carpets.

Given its low profile and small dimension of a diameter of 12.6 inches and a height of 2.6 inches, the Shark ION Robot Vacuum R75 can easily clean under furniture and other small areas.

Vacuum Filters

Particle discharge handling with the Shark ION Robot Vacuum R75 has been made a breeze, courtesy of a large HEPA filter which sits inside of the bib. The filter, however, requires regular replacements which are quite costly. If the vacuum cleaner is used properly while cleaning, it may take some time before any replacements are made.

About its Batteries

The Shark ION Robot Vacuum R75 features a high-powered lithium-ion battery which helps it provide a solid suction and an outstanding performance. The vacuum cleaner has a battery-level indicator light which alerts the user on the level of charge left.

When the battery capacity gets low, the robot vacuum docks itself onto the charger which will be fully charged in three hours or thereabout. On a single full charge, the Shark ION Robot Vacuum R75 lasts approximately one hour.

Navigation and Ease of Movement

To aid in movement and navigation, the Shark ION Robot Vacuum R75 is equipped with multiple sensors. They have an integrated proximity sensor which prevents it from hitting furniture or any other hard surface that comes its way while cleaning. In case of any obstacles on the way, the robot’s front caster wheel allows it to turn in order to avoid hitting the object which it has sensed. The sensors are also designed to inhibit the vacuum cleaner from falling off stairs and any elevated places.

For further control of the robot vacuum cleaner, The Shark ION R75 has a 9-foot boundary strip and two Bot-Boundary connectors. If you have a busy area in the house where you don’t want the vacuum cleaner to reach, you can cut the boundary strip to the required size and using the connectors, form angles which will create a no-vacuum zone where the unit won’t go.

Dustbin Capacity and Maintenance

The Shark ION Robot Vacuum R75 has a dustbin with a capacity of 380ml and can store 14 oz. of dirt. The bin is easily removable and pulls out from the side of the vacuum cleaner. When the dustbin is full, you can quickly dump the container using the easy-release tabs. `

The Accessories that Come with it

This model comes with the following accessories:

  • The Shark ION robot body
  • 2 on the side brushes
  • 1 HEPA filter
  • Charging dock
  • 8ft of Bot-Boundary bands
  • Remote control with batteries
  • Product manual with a quick beginners guide
