Evolution Robotics Mint Automatic Hard Floor Cleaner, 4200 Reviews
Mint sweeps and mops hard surface floors automatically, using popular dry and pre-moistened disposable cleaning cloths or re-usable microfiber cleaning cloths (included). Dry sweeping mode is ideal for picking up dust, dirt and hair. And Mint's special mopping motion gets deeper dirt and grime off your floors. Guided by the North Star Navigation System, Mint tracks where it cleans so it doesn't miss a spot. Mint starts by cleaning open areas, moving methodically back and forth across the floor. Mint detects and cleans around furniture and other obstacles as it encounters them. Mint then follows with a perimeter sweep along the edges of furniture and baseboards, then returns to where it started and parks itself. Smart sensors help Mint avoid area rugs and raised carpet transitions, detect areas that are too low to enter and avoid falling down stairs.

Comments about Evolution Robotics Mint Automatic Hard Floor Cleaner,:
I have fibromyalgia, CFS, and myofascial pain. I can't manually sweep/mop the floors. Husband works so hard on other tasks...this robot really takes up some of the slack.
Generally, I use the Roomba first, to get the bigger pieces then the mint to follow up and 'dust' the remaining cat fur, etc. I love that the cloths are washable and reusable. But it only came with 3, which is not enough for a week. I had to buy more cloths on eBay. Using other cloths...can be tricky, due to the size needed, and the thickness affects robot performance.
Main con: water only to mop. I tried vinegar water, but it messed up the wheels, and eventually had to go in for repair. Sometimes I try using the swifter mop disposable cloths, but I am sensitive to the smell, and chemicals. Mint recommends using Bona floor cleaner. So I am trying that now.
Nice and small, but nose does get stuck under some doors, furniture.
Ease of Maintenance
Clean the wheels after each use. Cloths are easy to use and remove.
n/a. but cloths pick up dust and cat fur well.
Gets stuck on uneven floors, or lifted or broken boards/tiles. Our house is old. Mint can't do all the floors.
Nose gets stuck sometimes. But operation is simple. Just 3 buttons. Power, sweep, mop. The gps cube is small and simple. But some rooms I have to move the cube and point a different way, and run mint 2 or 3 times. Because our ceilings are uneven, and it gets confused.
Get extended warranty. Wheels will wear out, or something will get wonky, and it will need servicing. But fairly sturdy, considering its a small robot!
