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.

Comments about iRobot Scooba® 450:

I use water with a capful of Lavender floor cleaner to shampoo my floors. Immediately after use I empty and rinse the tank. The removable parts like roller blade, filter etc remove & wash and parts that do not come off I use wet paper towel to clean and dry off with dry towel. It is noisy but you get used to it, I like using my Scooba I call her Loreta. Within 3 months from purchase date I had to have the main base replaced, first it appeared like the battery would not charge so I ordered a new one, that did not fix it so irobot sent me the new base. Now 8 months later the machine turns on but will not run and irobot wants to charge me $150 to fix it. Over the phone they tell me it could be the start button problem. Why have a product that has so many defects? If the machine lasted 3 to 5 years without these hiccups them irobot has a great product. I would recommend to a friend BUT with a big warning about purchasing some kind of warranty for 3 years that irobot will have to pay to repair their product.

We are a bus business couple, with children in early 20's and our first grandchild. Time poor. The rumba scoops has freed up time, so we can be their for our children.

    Comments about iRobot Scooba® 450:

    I used to have a Scooba 300 series and I loved it. I used it for almost a year until it stopped working. So I traded up for the 400. I wish I could go and buy the same one I had before because of all the problems.

    Right out of the box it doesn't dispense enough water and after a couple uses one of the tread on the wheels starts coming off. I sent a request for help on the dispensing of water and I recieved a lovely answer about how it was my fault for not using the proper solution. I was using the irobot solution and water. It's always nice when they blame you off the bat before checking on any facts.

    I then was asked a bunch of random questions that had nothing to do with the dispensing of water (How exactly does room size matter in water dispensing?). I'm still working to try and fix the problem, but honestly i feel I'm going to have to return this and try again or wait until the next series where they fix these little problems.

    And I'm very bummed considering I LOVED my old scooba. I kind of feel that they went overboard with the tech extras. I don't need a voice telling me that you are stuck (when you aren't). I just need a basic scooba that cleans until it's done.

    I bought the roomba and the scooba when I hurt my back in 07. It saved my floors and I will always own both of the products. If you said I could only have 1 the scooba would win.
    My husband "blows" out my roomba occasionally.
    My dog will turn it on turn his back to it lay down and "let" it get him. He acts surprised and does it all over again.

    Not worth the money

    from Kiln, MS

    Pros

    • Faster Than Old Scooba
    • Quieter Than Old Scooba

    Cons

    • Cleaning Solution To Buy
    • Poor Battery Life
    • Virtual Wall Doesnt Work

    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.

            Great for perfectly flat floors

            Pros

            • Easy

            • Flat Floors Only

            Best Uses

            • Smooth surfaces

            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.
