Roborock and chairs with legs of steel pipes?


New here and we are looking into buying a robotic vacuum cleaner and the S6 MaxV is on top of my list at the moment.

But I'm a bit worried about how such a unit would handle our dining room chairs, as their legs is made of steel pipes that has a horizontal part from front to back leg on each side.

Like this:

Would it be clever enough to figure out where to go, or would it spend a lot of time climbing on the horizontal pipes and eventually get stucked now and then?

(Putting the chairs up-side-down on the table daily basis or a few times a week is not an option...)

Any thoughts or experience?

Best Regards

  • Hi, in my case I have the S5 Max and in this table the robot doesn't try to climb the horizontal pipe because the pipe touches the bumper, but I don't know what will be the behavior of the S6 VMax.

    I hope this helps.


  • Hi buddy, which one did you finally go with? Even am looking for the same.

  • Hello,

    It is hard to say whether the S6 MaxV is clever enough to recognize them and avoid them. The size of obstacles which can be detected is 3 x 5 cm, therefore, it may get stuck on the chair legs.

  • Yeah, that cross bar is very close to the ground and I can guarantee the robot will try to climb it. I don't think there is a robot that would not do that. I personally have regular charirs with 4 pilar legs and I still lift them off the floor before vacuuming because the robot will tend to vacuum around every leg...

    Yes, we guess this is the easiest solution right now. However, we think our tech team will also work hard to improve this situation in future.

    That would be neat. A robot that can lift things off the floor out of the way before it starts a run. There is a roborock youtuber fan, reviewer who shows such a robot but its a homebuilt bot I think and doesn't clean 🤡
