Differences at a Glance

Body and Design

Accessories and Equipment

All of them have standard things like a robotic mopper, different pads, battery, and a charging device. These are the standard accessories which you will get with all of them.

Working

240 is basically for smaller places like kitchen and bathrooms, while 380t is made for the larger houses, and the M6 is made to clean very more significant areas as well. While 240 and 380t do require some guidance while working, M6 is work on its own and doesn’t require any kind of guidance while working.

Others

While 240 and 380t don’t have any kind of connectivity, M6 has a got wifi connectivity and can be operated and controlled by the app. M6 is also smart enough to make amp inside of it while working so that it finds ease while working, which is absent in 240 and 380t both.

The cost of M6 is very high among them, and 380t is quite cheaper than the M6, while 240 is the cheapest among them. Weight of 240 is very light, then comes the 380t, which is quite heavy, while M6 is the heaviest one among them. The tank capacity of 240 is very less between them, and then comes the 380t, and the maximum capacity is of M6.

Conclusion

All of them are best on their own, but what makes them different is the need of people. While 240 is the best value, 380t is the best budget, robotic mopper. M6 is quite expensive, but it will be best for those who have to clean larger areas, then it will be the best option for them.
