Kärcher Robocleaner RC 4000

Postby hdablin » September 2nd, 2011, 6:05 am

There is some info about new Kaercher's robot Wacuum - RC 4000. According to the Kaercher, it will be announced in the next few days at the IFA, the Berlin customer electronics exchibition.

The product description is not very informational. According to it the most valuable difference between RC 3000 and RC 4000 is color (persanally I like yellow much more). It seems that RC 4000 is an evolutional (but not revolutional) development of RC 3000. I hope they'll add technology (such a lighthouses or a kind of mapping) the robot to clean the entire floor (multiple rooms) automatically.

There is a short introduction in German (machine translation to English)

Does anyone know more about this robot?

hdablin,

Welcome to Robot Reviews!!

Interesting find! A member asked them about a new robot and they 'claimed' they didn't have one in the works. Must have not been true. They were just probably following orders on staying 'Tight-Lipped".

I can't wait to see more about this! Do you know when IFA will take place?

Just re-translate it - yeah, that's right, they don't have it yet, but WILL have in few weeks.

BTW, the description tells that the only difference between RC3000 and this new one is the colour (silver-black).

They must have changed something else besides just the paint job. ;) Unless they aren't following standard protocol. If it was just a minor change, they should have went with RC3001, or RC3050, not RC4000. Who knows, maybe you are right.

Here is a German forum discussion about the RC 4000: http://www.roboter-forum.com/showthread ... er-RC-4000 (English machine translation).

Their moderator said (as official Kaercher's info) that there is only one difference between RC 3000 and 4000 - their color.

I've emailed Kaercher-Europe and asked about the difference. If any news, I'll post here.

Can someone tell me if the 4000 got a scheduler? I know the 3000 didn't have one and thats the ONLY negative I could think of. But for my money I want a machine which got a shceduler!

Well we did not believe it either and called Karcher (we speak german) and they really just changed the color on it.
