The vacuum will weight 6 to 8 pounds after the extended battery is installed. Plesthe weight of drive component, batteries robot plastic/fiberglass body and ezb. I want to know ifi should use big servos , motors , or large stepper. Thanks

My options is used to servo motors is applicable to your device.Because it can rotate 360 degree at any direction must rotate...i.e. Epicyclic gear train & Planetary Gear mechanism is using for your applicable robot
