A round-up of some of the latest local and international floor care category news.

Electrolux Pure i9 Robot Vacuum arrives

Previewed in our October 2017 issue, Electrolux has released its much anticipated Pure i9 robot vacuum in New Zealand.

Billed as “the most advanced robot vacuum cleaner on the market today”, Pure i9 features ClimbForceDrive, a detection system that prevents the unit getting stuck on carpet, under furniture or falling down stairs while 3D Vision mapping technology guides the unit to the most effective cleaning path and resumes cleaning where it stops after returning to the base for recharging.

The unit can also be fully controlled and scheduled remotely through the new Electrolux Pure i9 mobile app for Android and iOS.

Its unique triangular shape, combined with an efficient side brush, allows for tricky corners and edges to be cleaned while an extra wide brush roll gives a larger cleaning path.

For this premium model ($1,999), Electrolux is offering Platinum Elite, a back to base service for consumers anywhere in New Zealand in 72 hours, door-to-door.
