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™ Extended Life Battery: iRobot® XLife™ Extended Life 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.

Comments about iRobot Roomba® 870:

I like how thoroughly it cleans and that it will fit under certain pieces of furniture.

What I haven't figured out is why it cleans some room three times but will ignore others and if replaced there on cleans it once. But I wouldn't trade it at this point unless one was invented that did stairs! Wouldn't that be a kick.

Comments about iRobot Roomba® 870:

We purchased Ricky Bobby after our 7-month-old vacuum robot from a different company stopped working. The first thing I noticed was how much faster the Roomba cleaned (resulting in Ricky Bobby as the robot's name). The Roomba 870 does a fantastic job around the house, climbing over cords, avoiding other obstacles, and performing a rather thorough clean (for a robot--my sweeping job is much better). Our Roomba has become stuck at the top of the stairs more than once, but not every time it approaches. Overall, we're delighted and wish we would have bought this one first!

      The roomba does a great job on my tile floors and getting under my furniture. But although it claims to be per friendly it is not. The dog fur clogs the brushes constantly so I cannot run it without supervision. It does not work on carpets

        Things that could be better - quieter, longer battery life, more capacity before you have to empty it, quicker charge time, doesn't return to charger as advertised much of the time - we find it dead under a couch or something.

        That being said - we don't know how we lived without it

          I love this machine. My husband is disabled but I still work and keeping up our house is difficult. Your product keeps my floors clear of most cat hair and dropped crumbs. If it it emptied the litter boxes, it would be the perfect machine. Thank you

            I am really pleased at how easy our iRobot was to set up and use. This is my 4th machine and they just have better. It is handy to have one on each floor of our house. My husband gave it to me for Mothers Day as I have allergies and the iRobot really makes a difference for me.
