Looking for a bot with garbage bags / base

Postby robitali » April 2nd, 2018, 3:53 pm

I have the neato botvac 85. I run it almost daily, and I am really tired from emptying the bin every other day. The dust always gets out and spreads on surrounding area.

Does anyone know if there is a robot with garbage bags or a base to offload the garbage? I could only find the Karcher model which is discontinued now I think. There is also the Kobold robot where you can suck out the garbage with the normal vacuum cleaner. But that is too much of a hassle in my opinion.

Sounds like it is doing a good job as it is.

AFAIK, you're limited to the Samsung 8980 example: http://www.samsung.com/nz/consumer/home ... 80L4K/XSA/, the Ecovacs Deebot R98 (and other/older versions of this model) example: https://www.ecovacs.com/global/deebot-r ... EEBOT-R98/, or the Karcher RC3000/4000 (both now discontinued).

It looks like the base units dont have a garbage bag either. So I would still have to empty them manually.

I dont understand why nobody is doing it. The majority of normal vacuums have garbage bags, why not robot vacuums. :cry: :cry:

The advantage with all the above units is that you have to empty them far less frequently. And the volume of dust being disposed of means you'd likely take the dust container outside to dispose of it rather than placing it into your kitchen waste.

The Karcher base does use garbage bags. They still have to be removed and disposed of with the potential for dust to spill, so nothing is perfect. If there is a downside with the Karcher, it is the cost of buying those bags... they ain't cheap.

Certainly the majority of "normal" vacuums throughout Europe haven't used dust bags for years. The manufacturers used to love using dust bags, because they made far more profit from the ongoing sale of bags than they did the initial sale of the machine... according to Dyson. He started the bag-less revolution, and most manufacturers now follow.
