Was looking at a Dyson V6 with all the deals circulating. But after some research I've found this vacuum to be equivalent if not better, depending on use case. This is mainly for it's DuoClean head which can pick up larger debris from hard surfaces vs the V6/V7.
Shark support confirmed with me that this is the exact same vacuum as the current IF250 model and is less than half the price. https://www.sharkclean.com.au/products/cord-free-stick-vacuu...
Some other unique features include:
-Removable battery: Dual Charger and battery can be bought from shark direct for $129 posted (Stock coming in October) can quickly swap batteries
-Flexible wand/stick attachment: Can fold 180 degrees to get under tables etc without bending over
-Ability to free stand (must be 'folded')
Main downside to this is a small tank of around 350ml. Dyson V6 is 400ml for comparison.
