I have a Floormate and a 5800. There's a big difference in how they work and how long the floor stays wet.
The Floormate dries the floor much quicker and drier than the 5800. The 5800 wets the entire floor, then, goes back over and vacuums up the excess. The Floormate you basically dry as you go.
On high humidity days, I need to initiate another dry-cycle on the 5800 as the floor stays wet very long (like over a half hour) otherwise.
I would be very careful about trying a Scooba on 'click and play' wood flooring. The edges of the flooring just are not sealed. And, as another post pointed out, some are basically MDF with a thin layer of wood laminated on top.
I wouldn't have a problem using the Scooba on an edge-glued laminate floor. (imho as I have installed both types.) The edge-glued floors can be damaged by being wet for a long time (like sitting a flower pot on it), but, being wet for a normal cleaning cycle should be ok.
The 5800 is more convenient and way easier on my back and joints! Plus, I can watch tv while it's doing it's thing
. The Floormate is collecting dust in the pantry.
