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:

      The Scooba 450 is easy to use and clean. It does the heavy lifting of keeping our holiday home clean and scrubbed. I'd prefer if it had a scheduler like the Roomba vacuum. That way, I'd have it clean at night while everyone is sleeping.
      Overall, I highly recommend it.

      It is a great vac if no water is used. If used to scrub don't bother by the time you spend recharging, cleaning the unit, and repositioning it in areas not cleaned well, be better off paying someone to mop by floors or just buy a good hand mop.

        Comments about iRobot Scooba® 450:

        I never review products but I'm writing this review to tell you that this is a good product.

        I hesitated for a long time before buying the floor mopping robot due to the price. Due to health reasons I just can't mop the basement floor any more. After my son left for college I finally had to find a new way to get the floor clean so I choked down the price.

        I've had the robot for several months now. I LOVE IT!! Yes, the price was painful but now that time has passed I only see the helpfulness of the product.

        It's not the maid we all dream of. You still have to sweep the floor. You still have to move furniture. BUT THEN YOU JUST TURN IT ON AND WALK AWAY. The really hard work, mopping, is magically taken care of.

        You do have to mop the floor in sections, but I find that a good thing. I don't have to lift and flip chairs onto tables; I can just move chairs to the other section. I sometimes use the moved furniture to make barriers to divide the floor into sections.

        I recommend that you place the Lighthouse thing in plain view so that you don't forget to turn it off after mopping.

        This machine is a big, big help to me. It's easy to use, easy to clean. Well-designed.

                  When I would see your ads - you have clean homes shown - sometimes so modern they look like they never even could get dirty. My husband works with former industrial designers from iRobot and kept asking me if we should look into getting one. I replied that they would never work for us. We have kids, 3 dogs, a cat which come with lots of hair, dirt and drool. After two hours I have never been in love so much in my life. While I lay in bed in the morning sipping my Diet Pepsi my 9 year old son fetches Roomba and it vacuums all the dog hair and dust under the bed, dressers and everywhere else it lands. Then we bring in Scooba. The smell of the cleaning solution alone makes my day so much brighter. So in closing don't be afraid to tout that it can work for overworked moms who are soooooo sick of housework.

                  Comments about iRobot Scooba® 450:

                  I had high hopes for this iRobot Scooba® 450 after using their vacuum version with very satisfactory results for over a year now. We have high quality laminate flooring so I was a bit concerned about the possibility of this device causing the floors to delaminate or buckle. We live near an ocean with strong breezes that often drive the rain through open doors and these floors have been wet many times without adverse consequence so I thought I'd chance it. So far (after one use) they held up well.

                  What disappoints me are a few engineering deficiencies with this model that doesn't live up to their advertising hype. First off, I was hoping that this machine would clean thoroughly but alas it leaves streaks. This is despite using a brand new machine and following their directions to the letter. I used their solution as well. Perhaps with additional washes this may improve but it was only able to perform one complete wash cycle on a fully charged battery before the battery low indicator came on. I also found that it does not avoid carpets and rugs but rather runs over them and gets stuck. I had already removed the smaller rugs but had to roll up the edges of the larger ones to keep this machine from trying to wash the rugs as well. I ended up using the Virtual Wall to keep it off the carpeted areas. Finally, the machine was not able to suck up all the water. It did manage to get most of it but left a few large puddles in various places that I had to soak up by hand. I think the AI may be easily confused by complex areas. We have an island in the middle of our kitchen and even though it did manage to get around it it's not clear whether it was able to make all the passes in all areas that it was suppose to.

                  The bottom line is that this works, sort of. It does leave streaks and rides over rugs and carpets which are big negatives for me. It's also not clear that its AI can manage to perform all passes over spaces that are not completely unobstructed. I was hoping for more based on my previous experience with their vacuum robots but this isn't it.

                      • Maintaing Your Hard Floor

                      Comments about iRobot Scooba® 450:

                      I've had this robot for a few weeks and I'm really happy with it.

                      I had a big family party on Sunday - and it rained. People and dogs running in and out of the kitchen tracking mud. It was late, I was tired, the dishes were done but the floor was a mess. I put scooby on the job and went to bed. I was greeted the next day with a nice clean floor! I love this robot!

                      I bought this robot to mop the kitchen floor between house cleanings when for some reason the floor is a mess. I was attracted to the fact that it uses only clean water, it doesn't just smear around the dirt so you don't notice it so much. It far exceeds my expectations - it does a really good job on the kitchen tile! I also tried it on my screen porch - floor to ceiling screens on three sides, very rough tile. The screen porch gets very dirty very fast. Scooby did a pretty good job on the screen porch even though it was really filthy the day I decided the screen porch was in desperate need of a cleaning and I really would rather lie on the couch and read a mystery.

                      The cleanup of the bristles and squeegee is fast and easy. It would be nice if the battery lasted longer, so it could do more on one charge. It's still a great device. A pricey device, but worth every penny when you go to bed with a dirty floor and wake up to a clean one.

                      • 90 Sqft Or Smaller Rooms

                      Comments about iRobot Scooba® 450:

                      I have a 150 sqft area of tile that covers the kitchen, entrance and bathroom. In my first attempt to use Scooba, I set it to large room (150-300 sqft). When it finished, the clean tank was almost empty, but the dirty tank was completely dry. It just contained a bit of dust. From experimenting I found limiting Scooba to about 90 sqft but still using large room works best. It collects about 5-10% of the water it uses.

                      The top of my Scooba is heavily scratched from becoming wedged under the dishwasher and kitchen cabinets. It sometimes is able to open the cabinet doors. I've started rolling up old towels and putting them under the cabinets. I now have to hand clean these areas.

                      Scooba likes to climb onto the carpet then rotate when it realizes it can't move forward. Rotating makes things worse - it would be better if it would back up. I set up barricades on the carpet as the virtual wall is too imprecise and would mean more floor to hand clean.

                      The spiral mode seems to be the most effective cleaning mode Scooba has. Water left on the floor when spiraling outward is picked up when spiraling inward before the water can air dry. However it does this only once then reverts to random paths around the room. The spiral seems to have a diameter limit of about five feet and sometimes it aborts the spiral at about one foot without even hitting any obstacle.

                      The brush is so thin that only a few bristles touch the floor at any given time (I had a look underneath while Scooba was sitting on glass). The bristles are too short to reach into tile grout. The brush can pick up some hair and dust bunnies but that's about it. iRobot needs to offer an optional heavy scrubber brush (20 times the number of bristles and longer).

                      I divide my 150 sqft tile floor into two parts then run each part as a large room. I do two passes for each part. The first pass with soap solution and the second pass with water and vinegar only to try to pick up the air dried soap left from the first pass. This requires four charges. I end up spreading this across two days.

                      Scooba does not have a reset button. Once it has started a cycle it can be paused but it will always resume from where it left off. If you have to interrupt it in the drying stage then start it the next day it will resume drying a dry floor - wasting time and battery.

                      I am a little freaked when Scooba slams into my appliances. My stove makes a loud noise but I am more worried about my fridge getting scratched. It would be nice if Scooba had a sensor that made it slow down when approaching obstacles.

                      There is no USB port for software updates.

                        We have two Golden Retrievers in our home and our hardwood and tile floors get extremely dirty fast. Scooba has helped out immensely by washing, cleaning and drying our floors amazingly. Our floors get so clean, shiny and smell great thanks to our Scooba. My time is now free to do what I want to do and get other things done without having to worry about washing the floors. I really love Scooba's efficiency and the way our floors smell when they're all clean. Scooba is also very easy to maintain. The one thing I don't like is I can't pick up the Scooba during a cycle to move it to a different location without getting an error signal. But other than that, I have no complaints and totally recommend Scooba to everyone especially to those with pets.

                        When I decided to buy Scooba 450, crossed my fingers it was going to work. After using it for a couple of weeks. I love it!!!. Scooba does most of the work for me.
                        After reading some reviews was careful to make scooba ready the rooms to be cleaned.
                        Surprised how dirty the water comes out, after cleaning. I do love the product and would recommend it.
                        There are some minor nuissances for me, one is the battery life, as it is enough to just clean one big room, it would be nice to be able to buy another battery to keep Scooba working, and finish all at once without the need to take it to the charging station.
                        Also I think it needs to be smarter, as there are some parts where Scooba doesn't go, specially after bumping into a few obstacles and also I would like it to end the job in the same place it started to avoid looking for it, specially under furniture.
                        Other than that is a great product, I use it on a daily basis a couple of times a day, never seen my hard floors so clean with so little effort
