    Seeing my wife likes our now old carpets/mats I see no robot vacuum in the future.

    A quick trim of the ends of the carpets and you're sorted!

    There is a rug in the laundry that ours just plows into and bunches up but it's quite light. All the others it manages to negotiate. Ask your Wife if she prefers old carpets or the extra time she'll have by not having them and getting a robot...

    You are making sexist assumptions there and will be reported to the Me Too police.
    I do the vacuuming.

    Very timely, I was joking about a robot vacuum on weekend, as our dog is a malting machine and we vacuum daily

    They work great for keeping the fur tumbleweeds down. If you just want the vacuuming functionality see which ones have the largest bin in them or one that will self empty when full. The T8 doesnít self empty when full but just at the end of a clean. This is still ok as if it fills up before the whole house is done you can set it to clean one area at a time so it will empty after each area - it just means youíd need to program itís. but differently.

    I have an automatic vac.
    It takes a bit of prodding to get started, can slack off in the middle of the job & makes a strange moaning noise a lot of the time.
    The brand is McQuillen, it's 15 years old & the model is Number 3 son.
    I get an error occasionally, something about me being on it's back?

    Including the 3 Amigos!

    Sounds like the ďautomaticĒ lawnmower I have

    After deliberating on the battery variety manual mower and speaking to people who had experienced them tackling 3í high (well maybe ď not Ď) buffalo, I just bought a husky easy start 4 stroke

    This is where the automatic part comes in
    A swift swing of the boot and some loud and obnoxious words from my mouth
    Itís becoming automatic for my two well behaved boys to take it in turns to push it around the backyard

    Even the missus was impressed as it only took her talking about taking away the controllers for their x play drive gismos once

    Still has to put up with the grunts and moans but itís a start
