Unique D-Shape & CornerClever Design
With its distinct D-shape and CornerClever design, the Botvac™ D80 and D85 effectively clean more of your home, reaching deep into corners and tight alongside walls where dirt collects. Its innovative wall hugging shape allows the D80 and D85 to clean to within 10 millimeters of the wall, while its low profile design enables it to effectively clean under beds, furniture, and other inaccessible areas, keeping your home pristine. Compared to the circle robot vacuums, D shape vacuums are a little efficient at cleaning corners.
Exclusive LaserSmart Technology
Both the D80 and D85 feature Neato’s exclusive LaserSmart™ technology for thorough, quick, and precision cleaning. The Botvac’s patented LaserSmart mapping and navigation technology instantly scans each room in your home identifying objects and obstacles, such as furniture and even toys, and then maps out the most efficient vacuuming route carefully navigating around them, enhancing performance and resulting in a cleaner home. The Botvac™ even detects and avoids stairs. Additionally, easy-to-use boundary markers delimit “out-of-bounds” areas.
Advanced SpinFlow Power Clean System
Combining powerful vacuum suction and precision brushes, the Botvac’s Advanced SpinFlow Power Clean system efficiently removes dust, crumbs, and even hair – leaving floors immaculate and dirt free.
Specialized Brushes for Multiple Floor Types
Both the D80 and D85 models include an innovative Helix Brush, ideal for all flooring types, and a distinctive Combo Brush, specifically designed to capture all types of pet hair and dander in your home. Featuring new sound smart designs, the Botvac™ brushes are quieter than ever, especially on hardwood, laminate, and tile flooring. 50% larger rollers and a new side spinning brush enable the D-Series to clean more efficiently along walls and near edges, picking up dirt, dust, and debris to within .10 millimeters of the wall!
The Neato Robotics models D80 and D85 also feature advanced power monitoring and high efficiency batteries. As it moves from room to room, the Botvac™ monitors its power levels and automatically “returns home” to its charging dock, recharges, then resumes its cleaning route until the job is finished. The Botvac’s rechargeable NiMH battery pack reliably vacuums up to 3000 sq. ft. of floor space per charge.
Easy-to-Schedule Automatic Cleaning
With its easy touch LCD display screen and intuitive Auto-Schedule controls, you can quickly and easily schedule cleaning jobs ideal for your family. With a simple push of a button, you can even do a “quick” unscheduled spot cleaning or a thorough multi-room vacuuming. Once scheduled, the Neato Robotics D80 and D85 models automatically vacuum multiple rooms, effortlessly transitioning from one room and flooring to the next.
High Capacity Collection Bin
Combining convenience and functionality, the D80 and D85 models boast a 0.7-liter high capacity bagless collection bin that boasts a higher capacity than circular vacuums. With its convenient lift out top-mount bin, the Botvac™ makes it easier to dispose of waste and produces less mess than smaller side slide-out and undermount bins. Once emptied, simply drop the bin back into place and your Neato is ready for its next cleaning job!
The Neato Robotics Botvac™ D-Series models D80 and D85 include enhanced jumbo filters, providing increased filtration performance. Though not HEPA grade, these new and improved filters more efficiently trap dirt, allergens, and particulates than previous models, protecting the environment and improving air quality for better health. For people with allergy sensitivities or homes with pets, the Botvac’s advanced filtration capably eliminates extra fine particulates, such as mold and dander, as small as 0.3 microns, allowing you to breathe easy at home.
Although there is a greater initial investment than with traditional vacuums, the Neato D80 and D85 come in at a very reasonable $450 to $500, making the Botvac™ a great value for the quality.
