The iRobot Looj 330 features a four-stage auger that spins at a speed of 500 RPM. It has multiple speeds that allow it to clear tough clogs. The auger flaps can be interchanged to improve performance.

The robot can automatically sense the debris and adapts itself to clean in an effective manner. It has a scraper that can clear the path. A 7.2 V Lithium-ion battery powers the robot, which lasts for cleaning a 200 ft stretch on a single charge. In around 5 minutes, the iRobot Looj can clean a 30-foot gutter section.

About 50 ft of communications range between the robot and remote control handle enables cleaning of longer stretches. The robot is waterproof to an extent and can be easily cleaned.
