Not suitable for...
Navigate like a pro
First, the Kärcher RC3 Premium drives backwards away from the charging station and turns around a couple of times to scan the room. If he discovers open doors, he drives in and scans this room. You can say that the Kärcher RC3 spied on the room. If he has all the rooms through he goes back to the charging station and starts cleaning. Immediately it can be seen that he works according to a system. Train by train he cleans the whole room When one room is ready, the vacuum robot moves to the next one and starts cleaning there. When they are all done, he finds his way back to the charging station and recharges himself. That´s great
Is the suction power of the Kärcher RC3 sufficient ...
The suction power of the device is good. Larger crumbs are reliably vacuumed. Why, however, we give no recommendation for animal lovers. Well … long hair tangles very fast around the side brushes. The must then always be cleaned by hand. We did not like it that much. But fair enough you have to say that the problem is with many vacuum robots. So to make it clear …. animal hair he sucks easily. Only the tangling with the side brush is annoying.
Kärcher RC3 now controllable via App ...
Kärcher offers a mobile app for the vacuum robot for free for IOS and Android. About this app you can control the vacuum robot. With the app you can create a cleaning schedule. Also several times a day is possible. In addition, a map of the room is displayed on the mobile phone. If, for example, you click on a spot, the Kärcher RoboCleaner RC3 Premuim drives to the spot and cleans it quickly. Very convenient !!. You can also see on the phone where he is cleaning and what the vacuum cleaner has already cleaned. The app works very well.
Alternatives to the Kärcher RoboVac RC3 Premium
The vacuum robot costs between 500 and 600 pounds. An equivalent alternative would be the Botvac D6 from Neato. It costs about the same amount but has a few functions more on board … such as the NO GO line function. The Deebot 900/901 would be an equivalent alternative. He is cheaper. From iRobot we would classify the Roomba e5 as worthwhile. The price would be about the same.
Conclusion to the Kärcher RoboCleaner RC3 Premium
The suction robot has a good quality … almost like iRobot. Only the charging station is very cheap. The navigation can compete with all top devices on the market. It even impressed us. The mobile app gives you useful options for controlling the vacuum robot. With 71 dB volume, it is indeed one of the louder devices. But that does not really matter, because he should cleanse if no one is there. A tip from us. Also look at Ebay and compare the price. They also have new devices and you can save a lot of money.
You are over 500 pounds for a robot too much …. then you can have a look at the tests on our vacuum robots up to 300 pounds
