Hands on with iRobot's Looj 330 - The Leaf Terminator
Believe it or not Fall is right around the corner, and that means that the leaves are going to start covering your driveway and taking up residence in your gutters. iRobot’s latest robotic marvel, the Looj 330 is ready to give your back and hands a break by letting the Looj do all of the dirty work for you. For those not familiar with the Looj, it is iRobot’s version of an intense gutter cleaner. This device whips and burrows through leaves and everything else that might be hiding in there.
The new 330 model is the first major update from the previous Looj models. It offers the ability to detach the handle from the Looj 330, plus the handle now does double duty as a wireless remote. The handle/remote will control the Looj 330 within a 50 ft range, or you can opt to let it take care of things on its own. The Looj 330 is able to blast through leaves at 500 RPM, it features a new 7.2v Lithium-ion battery for longer cleaning times, and its lower profile allows it to crawl around in smaller gutters. The Looj 330 cleans up to 30ft of gutter in just under 5 minutes, and it is waterproof for up to 8 inches of water. So if you get a hankering to clean your gutters in the rain, you should be good to go.
While this may not be a glamorous product, iRobot’s Looj is very practical. And for all of those who have had to hang on a ladder at the edge of their roof cleaning leaves and mud out from their gutters, the Looj 330 is a gift from the home improvement gods.
The iRobot Looj 330 will retail for $299.99 and is guaranteed to leave leafs shaking in fear.
