not quite a replacement for my regular vacuum
November 27, 2018
Am I a total dork because this little guy is sort of fun to watch cruising around, doing it's thing?! I have been very interested in trying a robovac out as we have two cats and wanted to see how it would do picking up the litter they track out of the box. Overall I am pretty pleased with this little unit though it will definitely not replace my regular Dyson vacuum. This robovac did a good job picking up that stray litter and cat hair, as well as other crumbs and such that were on the floor. I did notice when I set it to pick up a pile of litter I had swept up that the rotating brushes basically sprayed the pile all over the place but then did eventually pick most of it up. I do have quite a few transitions from hard-floor surface to carpet and this little guy trundles along without any issues, also tackling most rugs on the floor with ease. The setting I have used most is the edge setting and while it isn't perfect it does a pretty good job of sticking to the outside edges and getting the bits of dust and hair that always seem to collect there. You definitely do have to clean out the dust trap after each sweep through as that container is fairly small but it is fairly easy to remove and empty so not a huge deal. The unit was fairly quiet as well, much less than my Dyson stand-up and little cordless vacuums, so that was a nice bonus. This will largely be used for sweeping through the house every couple of days to pick up the little bits around but I still think I need to use my stand-up Dyson to really get a good deep clean on my carpets. The price of this unit was so reasonable compared to others I wasn't sure about the performance but so far I would say I have been impressed and would suggest giving this unit a try if you have been wanting to try one out and have smaller, crumb-type bits that you are looking to collect.
