Great idea, but apparently incomplete engineering. Believe the video in another review of the looj flipping, bogging down, and running out of battery juice waaaayyy too soon. I wish I had more fully embraced that video; I would have saved time and money.
The other red flag should be that no major retailer in our area, such as Home Depot, Lowe's or Ace Hardware, carries this robot (and couldn't even order it) -- though it's easy to find most all of the other I-Robot products on the shelves.
No one carries Looj because the buying scouts perhaps tried it and determined it'd be a product constantly returned by irritated home owners.
This is really too bad; I was hoping this product would work well. It does not, though it might in shallow "arc"-type gutters where the debris is dry. Unfortunately, that gutter style -- and dry when you need them dry -- are rarities.
