Buy used Dirt Dog, or retrofit a newer Roomba?

Postby Quenz » March 16th, 2019, 3:03 am

I'm thinking of buying a used Dirt Dog.

From what I gather, the Dirt Dog has different brushes, wheels, no vacuum, a larger bin, and some kind of special lifting mechanism? And this is what differentiated it from its regular household equivalent at the time.

Are any of the new Roombas comparable at all to the old Dirt Dog? Would it be possible to retrofit any of them to have all of the features that the Dirt Dog has, and make it suitable for my back deck?

This would be my first purchase of any kind of robot, so I don't know a lot about the ins and outs of all of this.
