iRobot Scooba® 450 Full Specifications

The Scooba Three-Cycle Cleaning Process
Based on professional-grade floor cleaners, the revolutionary new Scooba Three-Cycle Cleaning Process has been redesigned from the ground up to clean hard-surface floors three times better than ever before. Here's how it works:

  • Cycle 1 Sweep and Pre-Soak: Scooba sweeps up loose dirt and debris and puts down a thin sheen of water or iRobot Hard Floor Cleaner to soak into any stuck-on messes.
  • Cycle 2 Scrub and Squeegee-Vacuum: A scrubbing brush spins at over 600 RPM to remove grime while the squeegee vacuum suctions dirty water off the floor.
  • Cycle 3 Squeegee-Finish: Scooba ends with a final squeegee-finish cycle.

Use Scooba 450 anywhere you would use a mop and bucket, including tile, linoleum, vinyl, marble, slate, stone and sealed hardwood. Unlike a mop that reuses dirty water, Scooba uses fresh solution from start to finish.

Easy To Use
Just fill the robot and press CLEAN. Scooba 450 is easy to use from beginning to end:
  • Easy To Fill And Empty: Fill and empty the tank in seconds without fuss.
  • Two Cleaning Cycles: Choose from a full 40-minute cycle or 20-minute cycle for smaller spaces.
  • Cleans With Water Or iRobot Hard Floor Cleaner: Use water or iRobot Hard Floor Cleaner for a deeper clean to wash away bacteria.
  • Avoids Off-Limit Areas: A Virtual Wall® keeps Scooba in rooms you want to clean and out of ones you don't.
  • Compatible with Roomba® Accessories: Scooba 450 is compatible with Roomba Virtual Walls, battery charger and batteries.
  • Talks To You: The information button and audible cues give you insight into robot behaviors.
  • Simple To Clean: Removable cleaning head makes for easy access to brushes and squeegee for a quick clean by hand.

iAdapt® Responsive Navigation Technology
Using iAdapt Technology, the advanced system of software and sensors used in Roomba, Scooba 450 offers complete coverage of every section of floor. iAdapt has been modified for wet floors to optimize the timing between recurrent passes on the floor.

Scooba 450 makes multiple passes over every section of floor to ensure the most thorough coverage possible. Scooba 450 cleans rooms up to 300 square feet in one cleaning cycle.

Scooba 450 cleans dust and dirt right along wall edges. The robot's light-touch bumper system minimizing impact with walls and furniture. The soft-touch bumper has a non-marking strip to prevent damage to furniture and marking of walls and baseboards. Smart, built-in sensors help Scooba avoid rugs, carpets, stairs and other drop-offs.

        Pros

        • Cleaning Solution To Buy
        • Poor Battery Life

        Best Uses

          Comments about iRobot Scooba® 450:

          Compared to the old Scooba, it has a much shorter battery life. New, this one will only clean half of the space as my old Scooba-what is the battery going to be like after usage? My virtual wall only works occasionally- you never know when it will let the Scooba escape into another room. I have multiple IRobot products-loved them all. This one -not so much! It is very expensive and just not worth the money!

                Comments about iRobot Scooba® 450:

                If you have pets the water filter may clog and give you error 19. Easy to follow instructions to clean filter are available. Now that I know the procedure.... I'll turn it into a routine.

                I have Roomba 880, Scooba 450 and Brava 380T I use them regularly and love them all. Each has a special use. Without children or pets most people might be happy with the Brava 380T for simple mopping with a Swifter pad.

                Comments about iRobot Scooba® 450:

                I got this for my 500 sq foot kitchen/entrance/etc. which is tile. The tile are large but have wide deep grout lines. The Roomba is fine on this surface and does a great job, however the Scooba stops at each grout line acting like it is a cliff! I returned the first one, with in the first few weeks I noticed this happening and the second (refurbished is what they send I think) did the same thing! I gave up and now it just does my wood floors in the rest of the house. For that is is amazing and I would think it would do a great job on flat floors with no bumps or lips.
                I wish it was as "smart" as my Roomba- being able to go home to its recharge station..I have to find it and plug it in when it is done.

                Comments about iRobot Scooba® 450:

                I've used this product to clean rooms with multiple floor types (hardwood/tile). It stops at the carpet automatically. I love this floor scrubber and now I want to purchase the Roomba for my carpet. I have pets (dogs/cat) and it picks up all the hair. It cleans the hair from my daughter's bathroom floor. I love the convenience. My only wish is that it would have a charger that it could return to and charge automatically like the Roomba model. It is perfect for routine cleaning. I am completely happy with my Scooba!

                Comments about iRobot Scooba® 450:

                I've been an irobot customer for a decade or more, since the very first Roomba. I've had at least one of EVERY generation of Roomba and one or more of every Scooba. Some have been better than others, but I can say that each new generation offered at least some improvement. Until now.

                The 450 is a disaster. Yes, it runs around MUCH faster. It's maybe three or four times as fast as the older Scoobas. It has a nice compact tank assembly that's easy to fill and to dump. The removable brush head assembly is MUCH nicer than prior generations.

                But sadly the 450 is an unequivocal DISASTER in the most important area. It cleans worse than ANY earlier models. It leaves massive amounts of dirty water on the floor. Much less than half the water you put in will come back out. All you really do is change your dust into mud trails. The thing has also now begun making a HOWLING noise that I can hear from outside my house. It's too loud to hear a TV or radio, too loud to even read a book. Maybe it's time for irobot to abandon mopping robots. My new brushless Roomba is BY FAR the best Roomba yet. It is as brilliant as the Scooba is horrible.

                Save yourself the frustration. Buy a Roomba or a second or third Roomba. Skip the Scooba 450.

                    Comments about iRobot Scooba® 450:

                    The unit does not dispense water evenly and does not pick up what it does dispense. It stops dispensing water altogether leaving the clean water tank 1/2 full. The dirty tank is completely empty, so the water it dispensed evaporates from my tile floor. I wrote to iRobot on their own website feedback line and have not heard a word back.

                      We have a 1200 square foot condo in the Palm Springs area that has a tile floor. The desert can be very dusty and we have tried Swifters, steamers and nothing comes close to the job that our Scooba does. We add a little vinegar to the Sccoba water and the tile floor comes out spectacular!

                      Comments about iRobot Scooba® 450:

                      When I became a single dad with two kids mopping the floor quickly went to the bottom of the list of priorities, I just didn't have time for it, so this tool was everything I wanted it to be. I could set it and go work on other things. After about six months the battery would no longer hold a charge. It would start working and die about a minute later. The company sent a replacement battery and a USB memory stick to fix a known problem with the charger. The replacement battery lasted maybe 3 months. Batteries are not cheap. If I'm going to have to replace a rechargeable battery that's supposed to last for years every few months then I might as well just mop the floor myself. And if you don't use the thing for more than a week the rubber valves dry out and it will NOT dispense any liquids until you unseal them. I found that taking a balloon hand pump, adding water to it, then pumping it over the valves would wet and unseal them. Sort of a pain but it works. I will not purchase another one of these things even though I loved it while it lasted until they get batteries that are at least up to the quality of the device itself.

                      I really like all of the new improvements. I like that it is the same rounded size as the roomba, easier to clean the brushes etc. Easier to fill,and sturdier handle. I live alone and this new scooba does a great job of keeping all of my floors spotless. Glad to see they've changed the cleaning fluid. I highly recommend this new and improved model
