EXCELLENT

What we like about the iRobot Roomba 860 robotic vacuum cleaner is that it does an excellent job no matter the floor surface. We don't like that the bin is fairly small.

Technical specifications

One of the best things about this vacuum robot is that it works absolutely great on all types of floors. It will automatically adjust to carpets, tile, hardwood, laminate, and more. The Roomba 860 vacuum cleaner comes equipped with one extra AeroForce high-efficiency filter, and it will automatically dock and recharge itself between cleanings. Once the vacuum is completely charged, it will be able to clean for about one hour. The spinning side brush that this device has, will gently sweep along the wall edges and into the corners as well. This appliance is powered by one lithium-ion battery.

Features

Thanks to the iAdapt Navigation, this unit uses a full suite of clever and innovative sensors to navigate and adapt to your changing house. Dirt and debris will quickly be detected, and the device will actually concentrate on the cleaning where it is needed the most. Moreover, cleaning under and around most furniture, beds, and curtains will certainly not be a problem for this modern unit, which can also sweep along wall edges, and avoid stairs and obstacles. Another great feature is the full bin indicator that will let you know when the bin must be emptied. The Roomba 860 model features a 3-stage cleaning system. This means that there is a combination of powerful agitation, brushing, and suction, in order to provide you an excellent result.

Performance

Thanks to the AeroForce 3-stage cleaning system, this robot will deliver up to 50% more cleaning performance than other devices in this category. This is without a doubt a 5x more powerful unit than previous Roomba models. Moreover, the lithium ion battery that this device uses, delivers up to 2x the battery cycle lifetime. Thanks to the Dirt Detect Series II technology, the unit will detect the dirt that could go missing, and then remove it. In order to give you the best results in terms of cleaning, the Roomba 860 performs focused cleaning where it is needed the most. Every corner of your home will deeply be cleaned thanks to the spinning side brush that this robot comes equipped with.

Maintenance and ease of use

Thanks to the tangle-free AeroForce extractors, the vacuum robot grabs dirt from any floor type while considerably reducing hair tangles and brush maintenance. You can easily and quickly pre-set this vacuum to clean when it is convenient for you. You can schedule up to 7x per week, or just press the Clean button on the device. By doing so, you can definitely keep up with the everyday mess.

Design and accessories

This device measures 13.9 inches in diameter, 3.6 inches in height, and it weighs not more and not less than 8.4 pounds. Due to the fact that it is only 3.6 inches tall, it will easily fit under most furniture, beds, and kickboards as well. You will absolutely love its low profile design, and the black and silver finish. The unit includes a dual mode virtual wall barrier that will actually give the user a greater control over where the robot cleans. Once the virtual wall mode is selected, the device will be kept in the rooms that you want to be cleaned, and out of the ones you don’t. The halo mode will keep the vacuum away from items you want to protect, such as pet bowls.

Warranty and support

The manufacturer provides a 1-year limited warranty on the robot, a 6-month manufacturer’s limited warranty on the battery, and a 30-day money back guarantee.

FINAL THOUGHTS

As any other iRobot vacuum cleaner, the Roomba 860 delivers great performance and it has some pretty innovative features. It can gently and efficiently clean the carpets, the corners, but it can also access narrow spaces under the furniture. With a 3-stage cleaning system and the iAdapt Navigation, this model will forever change the way you clean your house. Furthermore, the device can succesfully target and remove the dirt until the floor is all free from dirt and it allows a simple operation with less maintenance. The stylish design makes it perfect for any house and the included accessories are exactly what you need for the best results.
