The mop head does not have enough fibres
I found that the mop can only be used when the handle is upright.
When you put the handle at an angle, you find the plastic around the fibre mop head hits the floor.
There should be more thicker fibres used around the mop head.
Handle broke after only 2 months use :(
The spin feature is effective - doesn’t leave watermarks even on shiny tiles. However, the handle itself broke while I was spinning the mop (a part just fell out of it while pressing the handle down) and now it’s unable to be used without the handle retracting.
Good until handle stopped working
I loved it, until the mop stick handle became loose and when mopping the extended stick slips back down and the head is loose, making it very difficult to mop effectively without hurting your back. I can't find a replacement stick unfortunately, and am reluctant to buy a whole new set again if this is just going to repeat over time.
Never really worked well
The mop head never went flat to place it in spinner I always had to position the head to do this myself.
The part of the rod near the spinner began slipping so the mop was then useless after only 7 months.
The mop itself mopped well just was not effortless to use
Good but then BAD
I purchase the set September 2019 and immediately found the product a vast improvement over my tired old wringer mop. The bucket is well made and easily balanced for carrying by the large handle when full of water. Unfortunately this is where the good ends! The mop handle just cannot perform up to normal use. I only use the mop once a week and soon found the tightening clamp was ineffective and the handle slipping down during use.
When i went to use the mop yesterday i could`nt get the mop to spin correctly in the bucket and after checking i have found the nut that holds the head to the shaft has split. This mop now not only fails to hold the set height it now does not spin
Another inadequate handle story!
I purchased the kit from Bunnings in May 2019 and, as per other reviews, the clip on the handle has now broken and the handle won't stabilise to effective mopping. Bunnings only has the complete set (mop and bucket) but I only need the mop! If I could just purchase the mop, I would, especially if this design fault has been rectified since 2019.
fantastic idea but needs a new handle
I love my sabco spin mop but cant get a replacement handle as the lever broke just after afew months use my husband tried to fix it!!!!!!! every thing else is like new grrrrrrrrr the first mop bucket broke but took it back to bunnings and they replaced it all. the first set was bought on the 5/3/18 replaced 14/7/18 and the handle broke about 6 months ago
Sabco good but...
Hi, my wife purchased the mop to reduce the drying time on our hardwood floors. It does this very well. However last weekend the mop bent in half and no longer spins. I tried getting a replacement from Bunnings but they only sell the complete kit. Any suggestions?
Great but not strong
I brought this mop maybe 2 months ago and the clip to lock in the mop snapped and also bolts came loose so head fell off. I do like the mop but maybe could do with a metal lock clip instead of plastic. & I can't seem to get a new mop handle otherwise I love this mop.
worked for a while
product was pretty good. moved to it from the hurricane spin mop. eventually the mop handle began slipping and then the lock clip snapped shear off while spinning. i now have 4 mop heads. 1 bucket and no handle. they do not sell the handle online as a separate item. so i may have to put it all in the bin :(
absolute rubbish that doesn't work
the internal click lock just didn't work from the first try, I had to manually lift and suppress this myself in order to finish the mopping, also the lock on the mop handle does not hold. Unfortunately I purchased it from a supermarket and did not keep the receipt so into the rubbish bin it goes
So far unreliable.
I purchased the super dry spin mop in April and while it worked it worked very well. I had only had it 5 months when the click lock failed so I took it back under warranty and got a replacement. However when I got the replacement home the thread on the handle is missing so I'm unable to screw it in. It seems to me that quality-control needs to be upgraded. It does come with a warranty so there is a backup but it's very inconvenient having to keep taking this product back for replacement.
Difficult to clean
I was very pleased with this on the first use or two as it was able to cover areas quickly. However I should have realised that grass/doghair fibres would cling to the microfibres and not rinse out easily after each use, which means spending time picking off solid bits! Would not buy again for this reason.
Best mop ever!
Best mop I have ever used. Great for mopping large tiled floor area and easier on my back. Unfortunately the lock broke and found I could not buy a replacement handle. Sent an email to Sabco and received a quick response saying they would send out a replacement. Arrived within a few days. Great customer service. Thank you.
Purchased in March 2018.

Great product. Great customer service
I bought the Sabco Supadry Spin Mop & Bucket set at Bunnings at the beginning of the year and was really happy with it. It leaves very little water on the tile surface and they dry streak free. Unfortunately the latch on the handle broke; this is to allow it to spin in the bucket and then be locked for mopping. However an email to firstname.lastname@example.org elicited a very prompt response and within three days a new section of handle was delivered. Although disappointed that the handle broke, the excellent customer support has restored my faith in this product which gives me such great results.

Questions & Answers
We too have a sabco supadry spin mop that we were given recently as a housewarming gift and the up and down control lever has split,it was working wonderfully until then and we couldnt of been happier,can i buy a replacement part for it ? many thanks
I'm so sorry to hear this has happened. You can't buy a replacement, but we can send you one.
Please send us your address details.
no problem, I have sent you a private message.
The instructions don’t tell you how to make it spin. I know this is an odd question, but how do you make it spin???
Instructions give a visual of how to do this. Release handle so that it contracts. Fit mop head onto the spinner in the bucket, keeping it flat. Push handle down and up. It spins at least once or twice for wet mopping and up to 5 or 6 times for a drier finish (less water in mop head).
Heres a YouTube video that will show you how. :)
