iRobot Roomba® 870 Full Specifications

The AeroForce Performance Cleaning System
Ideal for homes with pets and allergy sufferers, Roomba 870 traps dirt, particulates and allergens, drawing them into the sealed, HEPA-filtered bin. Here's how AeroForce works:

  • Tangle-Free AeroForce Extractors: Dual extractors grab and break down dirt and debris from any floor type. No brushes mean no tangles for you.
  • Airflow Accelerator: The accelerator creates a sealed channel that concentrates the airflow, drawing in more debris.
  • High-Efficiency Vacuum: A compact and efficient high-powered motor provides a 5X improvement in air power than previous Roomba generations.

Effortless Cleaning
Dirt happens every day. Keeping up with it just got easier.
  • Docks And Recharges: Roomba returns to its Home Base® to dock and recharge.
  • Cleans On Schedule: Roomba can be preset to vacuum up to seven times per week.
  • iRobot XLife™ Battery: iRobot XLife Battery delivers twice as many cleaning cycles as previous Roomba batteries, doubling the time before you may need to replace your Roomba battery.
  • Avoids Off-Limit Areas: A Virtual Wall® keeps Roomba in the rooms you want to vacuum and out of the ones you don't.
  • Lets You Know When Bin Is Full: Indicator lets you know when bin needs to be emptied.

iAdapt® Responsive Navigation Technology
In coverage tests, Roomba out-cleans the competition thanks to iAdapt Technology, iRobot's advanced system of software and sensors. iAdapt enables Roomba to find its way around any shape or size of home, covering every area of floor multiple times.
  • Finds Dirt And Debris: With Dirt Detect Series 2, Roomba uses optical and acoustic sensors to find dirt and perform concentrated cleaning.
  • Cleans Like You Would: The Persistent Pass Cleaning Method employs a back-and-forth cleaning pattern to apply elbow grease in areas where it senses excessive dirt.
  • Vacuums Along Wall Edges: Roomba uses Wall-Following Technology to clean right up to wall edges and kickboards.
  • Won't Get Tangled Up: Anti-Tangle Technology keeps Roomba from getting stuck on cords, carpet fringe and tassels.
  • Won't Fall Down Stairs: Cliff-detection sensors allow Roomba to avoid stairs and other drop-offs.
  • Won't Damage Furniture: The molded, soft-touch bumper cushions the contact between Roomba and furniture, walls and other objects.
  • Pushes Past Soft Obstacles: Light-Touch Bumper Technology accurately discerns soft barriers from solid barriers, allowing Roomba to go under curtains, bed skirts and couch skirts.

    I use the Roger, the iRobot Roomba 870 as my main vacuuming tool. It is a total time saver and absolutely amazing! It let's me put my feet up while it does the work for me. The bin is pretty easy to clean, but I wish it was a tad bigger. Great product - I love iRobot!

      Comments about iRobot Roomba® 870:

      Had our entire immediate family over this Sunday for a potluck & a day of Sunday football. I forgot all about my Roomba 870 because it is so quiet. So we are all in the dining room/kitchen when I heard a screech in the living room which is adjacent. My niece shouted "What is that!!!" Everyone went over to see what she was talking about, and there before their very eyes was my beloved Roomba 870 going to town on my carpet. They were all so very impressed asking me how good it cleans which I think it does a better job than my stand-up shark brand did. I explained how nice it is to come home and not worry about vacuuming and how the roomba 870 does all the work for me. They were shocked at how accurate it was on covering my entire living room and dining room and that it even returned back to it's charging base. I also told them where I was able to get this wonderful device at a discount discount directly from irobot!

      Comments about iRobot Roomba® 870:

      I love the way that Sam docks himself after cleaning and knowing he needs a recharge. It is impressive technology, to me anyway, to have a machine so knowledgeable. You just push the start button and away he goes.

      The virtual walls are great to keep Sam from getting into the areas in the kitchen I don't want him to go (like the dog bowls).

      I found that the first few times there is more dirt then I thought was there. It continues to pick up dog hair with every use. Sam does not argue about doing his household chores.

      The only down fall about Sam: he is not good at idle conversation.

      I need to mention that I received my iRobot® Roomba® 800 series discount from iRobot.

      Comments about iRobot Roomba® 870:

      I received a discount on our Roomba through iRobot. At first I was not impressed with the iRobot. I thought my other vacuum did a good job. After using it for a few days, I was impressed at how well it cleaned. I was also thankful for all the time I saved during the day. We have a large main floor, so it took a long time to clean. The kids programmed it to run while we ran errands. When we got back home, the floors were clean and it was back on its charger. I don't know how we lived with out it!

      Comments about iRobot Roomba® 870:

      We love our new family member! We have a older model Roomba that still works well, but I hated having to untangle the brushes constantly. When I received an e-mail from Bzz Agent offering a substantial coupon for trying and reviewing the 870 we jumped at the chance. Between my long hair and our 4 cats, it seemed like he was calling for help all the time. Wall-E the Roomba 870 has a great suction system that removes hair and other debris without the need for brush rollers. He only stops when the bin is full. The 870 also seems to be much more maneuverable than older models. Wall-E rarely gets stuck and I've seem him get himself out of some tricky spots.

      My only criticism so far is that when the bin gets close to full, clumps of debris are sometimes left behind on the carpet. I read in the FAQ that this should occur less as the 870 cleans more since the carpet will have a much better baseline of clean. I also wish the bin could be bigger, but I'm not sure how that would be possible while still allowing the Roomba to get under beds and into other tight spots. I'll happily trade off emptying the bin more often with getting rid of the dust elephants under the bed!

          I was very worried at first that it wouldn't work as good as myself pushing a vacuum around. However I was very surprised at how well the roomba actually works. I just love it. It has made my life so much better. Also my kids just love that we have a robot in the house! Thank u bzzagent for the coupon for this product!

            I received a great discount from iRobot to check out the 870 Roomba. This thing is amazing! I set it up in a room then go cook dinner. Now dinner is ready and the room has ben vacuumed all at the same time. Not only is it vacuumed but dust bunnies have been eradicated. No more hiding under my furniture. You should see what this thing got up. Even after a weekend of moving furniture and using my traditional vacuum. Been using the iRobot Roomba for about 2 weeks now and my carpets look amazing. Did I mention that one of my cats is obsessed with it? He loves to watch it. He even goes over to where it is docked and waits for me to turn it on. Both cats hate the traditional vacuum but neither minds this one. The only downfall is the filter must be replaced and is not a reusable one. Not a deal breaker just haven't had to deal with replaceable filters for a long time. I use this on carpet, tile and our home gym floors. All come out looking fabulous and it goes places I can't with the traditional vacuum unless I do a lot of lifting and moving.
