Hobot LEGEE-D7 Other brands

Hello everyone, welcome to Robotobzor! Today we will review the new Hobot LEGEE-D7 robot vacuum cleaner. I want to note that this is one of the most functional and practical robot vacuum cleaners of 2022. Additionally, the robot is equipped with unique design solutions that improve cleaning efficiency and ease of use and maintenance. Next, I will show in detail all the features of the device and test it in real conditions, after that I will express my own opinion whether it is worth buying the new Hobot LEGEE-D7. The price at the start of sales should be around $600, which puts the robot vacuum cleaner in the premium segment. So let’s go!


The robot vacuum cleaner came in such a branded box:

It is important to note that the dust collector has 2 windows for unloading garbage. And the robot has two suction channels. Here’s what it looks like:

Hobot LEGEE-D7 is equipped with a unique design solution – a suction hole is installed in front of the central brush for pre collection of light debris, such as wool and hair. This solution, according to the manufacturer, allows 80% to solve the problem of tangling the brush with hair, which greatly simplifies the process of maintenance and cleaning of the robot vacuum cleaner. The technology is called Tangless Suction.

The robot vacuum cleaner is equipped with 4 fall protection sensors. The charging terminals are located next to the swivel caster. The central brush block is not floating.

Between the central brush and the mopping pad there are 4 nozzles for supplying water directly to the floor. Side brush one: three-beam, quick-detachable. Moved to the corner of the body for accurate sweeping of debris in the corners. The central brush is bristle-petal, non-separable. Only the cap comes off on one side.

The mopping pad is attached to the platform with Velcro. We have to admit that the mopping pad is quite dense, much better produced than most other robot vacuum cleaners.

Well, now I would like to highlight two design features of the Hobot LEGEE-D7. The first is the water supply system. It is implemented very well. Unlike most other robots, in which water flows from the tank through a mopping pad to the floor, seeping dirt back, the LEGEE D7 has special nozzles in front of the mopping pad. They spray water onto the floor covering, dissolving dirt and stains, after which the cloth collects the liquid and absorbs it. In addition, intelligent water supply is provided depending on the floor temperature. The warmer the floor, the more water is supplied.

The second design feature is the lifting mechanism of the mopping pad. When driving on carpets, the robot vacuum cleaner automatically raises the platform with the mopping pad up to 6 mm, providing a small gap between it and the carpet. This allows the robot to vacuum and mop the floor at the same time, leaving carpets dry and clean after cleaning.

Well, it is additionally worth noting that instead of wheels, the Hobot LEGEE-D7 has caterpillars, thanks to which the robot is less likely to slip on a wet floor.

All design features was viewed here. As you can see – Hobot LEGEE-D7 is a truly unique robot vacuum cleaner. The build quality is high.

Hobot LEGEE D7 functions

As for last two functions, let`s look at them more detailed and see how they work. The zone with light obstacles is a rectangular area highlighted on the map, in which the Hobot LEGEE D7 turns off the lidar and moves ahead, only relying on the soft touch mechanical bumper. Such obstacles can be curtains, behind which robot vacuum cleaners do not clean, as well as, for example, a bedspread hanging from the bed.

Well, the second useful feature is an area with obstacles on which the Hobot LEGEE D7 can get stuck. As in situation with the legs of a clothes dryer, on which robot vacuum cleaners often get stuck. If you install such a zone in the dryer zone. The robot will carefully go around the legs and will not try to climb them. Another unique and useful solution!

A detailed video review of Hobot LEGEE-D7 with all the tests was prepared and published on the channel. I recommend you watching the video:

Finally, let’s move on to the tests. Let’s check the Hobot LEGEE D7 navigation in the obstacle room. First, the robot vacuum cleaner passes the perimeter of the premises. It got stuck on the legs of the dryer for a while, but as a reminder, in these areas you can turn on the gentle touch and avoid obstacles function. After passing the perimeter, the robot cleans up the entire available area with a snake and returns to the base. Around the box, he swept separately, but around the legs of the chair Hobot LEGEE D7 does not sweep, although he was able to drive under the chair. Anyway, the test passed successfully!

As for navigation within the house, the algorithm does not change here – Hobot LEGEE D7 cleans room after room, first along the perimeter then with a snake. There are no uncleaned areas left, this model has a good navigation!

Suction power

The real suction power of the Hobot LEGEE-D7 was a pleasant surprise. This robot vacuum cleaner was able to suck out debris even from a 10mm gap. In reality, the robot turned out to be very powerful and this is a big plus of the new model!

Dry cleaning on laminate

The quality of waste collection of different structure on the laminate is also high. Hobot LEGEE-D7 was able to pick up all the debris from the floor, including cleaned the corners perfectly. Look again at how well it sweeps debris in the corners:

At the same time, hair and wool are practically not wound on the central brush. Most of the debris is collected in the dust collector. Test passed successfully!

Carpet cleaning

The Hobot LEGEE D7 also does a good job of cleaning carpets, unlike other floor cleaning robots in the Hobot LEGEE line, which are not designed for this.

The quality of mopping is very high. Despite the fact that it doesn`t have unique moving platforms that Hobot robots are famous for, the LEGEE D7 is still able to wipe off simple dirt from the floor and produce high-quality wiping the floor without streaks. This is a plus!


In addition, it is important to note that Hobot LEGEE-D7 simultaneously vacuums and wipes the floor!

Wet cleaning and carpets

Speaking of wet cleaning in the presence of carpets, the robot can recognize carpets and automatically raises the mopping when driving on them. So, carpets always remain dry and clean. This is a very useful feature of the robot!

Collection of pet hair and wool

Separately, I tested how effective the pre-collection of hair and wool is. A large amount of this garbage was scattered on the floor and the robot was able to collect everything, the floor was clean. Let’s look at the state of the cleaning module:

We see that part of the hair is wrapped around the side brush, which is easy to clean. A small part of the hair was wrapped around the central brush. However, the main part of the wool and hair is collected in the dust collector. Wow!

Under normal household conditions, the robot also demonstrated high-quality collection of hair, wool and other debris, while the condition of the brushes was better. Wool and hair were not wrapped around them, all the garbage in the dust collector.

I can say that the light debris pre-collection feature has proven its effectiveness and I believe that the Hobot LEGEE D7 is one of the best, if not the best robot vacuum for pet hair in 2022.

Passage of obstacles

The patency of the Hobot LEGEE D7 is good. It can overcome 2 cm sills and is able to drive on carpets with an average pile.

Drive through dark surfaces

But, unfortunately, Hobot LEGEE-D7 is afraid of dark surfaces and recognizes them as height differences. I have already informed the manufacturers about this problem, and they will try to fix it. If suddenly it succeeds, I will inform you.

Noise level

And finally, I will check the noise level of Hobot LEGEE-D7 in different modes. At minimum power, the noise level is in the range of 60-62 dB. At medium power, the noise level rises to 64-67 dB, and at maximum power, the peak value was 72 dB. Yes, the noise level is increased, but this is due to the high suction power, so there are no complaints.

Personal opinion

Hobot LEGEE D7 was reviewed and tested in detail. According to our rating system, it managed to score 147 points and enter the TOP-10 in the overall rating of robot vacuum cleaners that passed the Robotobzor test!

I will share my own opinion about Hobot LEGEE-D7 after a detailed review and test. What I liked:

  1. High suction power.
  2. D-shaped body for better sweeping of debris in corners.
  3. Pre-collection of wool and hair by the suction port.
  4. Raising the platform with a mopping pad when driving onto carpets.
  5. Water supply to the floor through nozzles.
  6. High quality dry and wet cleaning.
  7. The robot vacuum cleaner can vacuum and mop the floor at the same time.
  8. Good navigation.
  9. A wide range of settings and functions in a branded mobile application for flexible cleaning settings.
  10. High-quality cleaning in areas with curtains.
  11. Careful movement in areas with obstacles where the robot can get stuck.
  12. Support 5GHz Wi-Fi.
  13. Complete set.
  14. Ability to install a creative voice notifications.
  15. Support control through voice assistants.
  16. High-quality assembly.
  17. Availability of warranty and service support from the manufacturer.

Yes, there are many benefits. As for the shortcomings, which can rather be called comments, I would like to highlight the following:

  1. Afraid of dark surfaces.
  2. The central brush is not disassembled.
  3. Does not sweep separately around chair legs.

As for me, the disadvantages are not so critical and given so many advantages, Hobot LEGEE-D7 is definitely one of the best robot vacuum cleaners in 2022. If it were also equipped with a station for self-cleaning and rinsing mopping pads, as well as a system for recognizing objects on the floor, it would certainly be the most functional, autonomous and the best of the best. But given the price and competition, this robot vacuum cleaner is recommended for purchase and will take the lead in new ratings that will be published soon.

On this note, I would like to end the review. If you have any questions, ask them in the comments. Happy tech shopping. Bye!
