Bought to change sand filter
I bought this machine to remove 160kg of wet old sand from my pool sand filter. It did the job very well and the cost compares favourably to hiring. The stainless steel feels a little flimsy but at least that makes it light when the motor is detached when carting the wet sand away.
Purchased in November 2020 at Bunnings for $99.00.
Great suction , had it over 10 years , used for all our renovations and still going strong .Plaster and concrete dust , no problem and wet use in garden equally as powerful. Excellent value for money.Can highly recommend.
Purchased in January 2007 at Bunnings for $85.00.
Poor Spare Part Accessibility
Whilst a powerful and reliable , unfortunately the spare parts required more suited to this climate are difficult to locate? The foam filter, and the rubber sealing beading on the lid are extremely difficult to find a provider on line! In this climate the Garden effluence soon degrades the Foam filter. I have had it for over a year and would recommend the supplier provides 3 foam filters standard with details on replacement in the UK? That would be at least 5 star rating. I use it to clean artificial grass.

I'm extremely happy
I purchased this vacuum a month ago from Bunnings for $99 with the intention of using it to clean up ongoing renovation mess.
It is more powerful than I anticipated, the suction is better than our $300 Wertheim vacuum!
It is extremely easy to pull around, even when it's getting full.
At $99, you can't go wrong!

A good industrial vaccum cleaner
Suites well for industrial use. Dry as well as wet vaccum works perfectly well. Design feature is not good. Also the powerful motor sucks everything into it effectively and in fast paced manner
Purchased in May 2019 at Bunnings Warehouse.
This is a cheap vacuum around $99 that performs ok but gets kind of irritating to use as you go on. Two real problems: the tube feels plasticy and cheap and continually comes apart, even when you jam it together. A better solution would be to have tubes that click together rather than rely on compression. Secondly, the cord is woefully short. Why would you have normal vacuums with great retractable cords and then a workshop vacuum which you have to move when you get out of range? The whole thing looks like an exercise in cost cutting but i would have happily paid a little extra to have something more user friendly. It's a lovely colour though...
Not enough suction
I have purchased this vaccum cleaner and I thought it is going to be a perfect vaccum for timber floor and carpets but it turns out to be useless, it doesn’t even have enough suction for timber floor imagine how you are going to clean your carpet! You will need to take out the extension wand and sit on the floor then vaccum directly using the flexible hose. Imagine how long it will take to completely finish your work! I don’t recommend this product to any one.
Effective and Economic
At $89, this 20 litre unit has proven to be a good value solution and fit for purpose. Purchased it for the purpose of cleaning out my pool's sand filter. This little unit moved 120kg of wet sand/slurry out the sand filter through a small access surprisingly well. The 3 piece wand and fittings are robust and the suction is effective. The stainless steel bucket (20litres) is a comfortable size and the castors provide great mobility. The product is fine for DIY. Overall I am happy with the performance and value.
great vacuum - sucks up even the finest dust!
I saw this vac when a tradie was using it on my reno job. Went straight to Bunnings and bought it the next day!
It is easy to manoeuvre about and the bag is large enough not to need replacing very often. With wooden floors it is the best thing, sucking up all the fine dust and cat hair.
good for sucking up down feathers
Not happy not enough suction, continually having to clean filter, even with filter cover in place.The vacuum head impractical scrapes across floor
perhaps ok for sucking styrofoam beads, small
feathers etc,dust? forget it
seems pointless having 30 litre capacity when even with a handful of dust you need to remove head any way to clean filter ,may as well empty drum at the same time
A vacuum for the rough jobs
We bought this for cleaning outdoors, under the Pergola and in the Garage, where I prefer not to use my Dyson. We paid just $89 and it appears to work very well for its purpose. The 1.8m plastic hoses are cheap and tacky, but they managed to vacuum inside my car adequately this morning. Suction is good, haven't tried the blower bit as yet.
Questions & Answers
I have a Ryobi wet and dray cleaner. It has been excellent. However, at the moment it is blowing fine dust out the exhaust outlet and not picking up as well as it has been. I have cleaned the filter. Any clues?
