The tank

All the robot vacuum cleaners are not equipped with bags. Instead, they collect the dusts in a tank. This part is accessible in either on top or under the vacuum cleaner. Due to the size of these devices and the technology inside it, the tank is slightly smaller than usual vacuum cleaners. This causes you to clean up the tank and the filters more often.
