It WILL break on you and you'll have to buy it all.. again.
Don't waste your money as this thing just ends up being wasteful to your wallet and environment.
It works well while it's in 1 piece. The handle WILL fail on you whether it be the locking mechanism or the spin action.
You CANNOT buy the handle separate, you'll need to buy the whole kit over again.
Used it once a week for 8 months and it's dead.
No longer spins
I have been raving about this mop since I bought it 6 months ago - unfortunately the pole no longer releases and it doesn’t spin. Apparently I can’t buy a mop separately from Bunnings. Very disappointed as I don’t need a whole new kit - turns out to be very expensive way to mop a floor.
UPDATE 1 May 2019
I was contacted by Sabco Customer Service who offered a new pole for my mop. Thank you so much for your great service.
Love the mop
My mops release has also broken can you purchase another mop handle without buying a new bucket etc. I have already purchased 2 complete kits for use in upstairs and downstairs areas. Before the handle broke I liked the mop I have mostly polished floors. some tiled areas and two rooms with floating floors.
Expensive piece of Junk
I’ve had the mop for Aproximatley 3-4 months
In that time it has broken twice. The first time it broke was when I was mopping and pushing in a forward motion. The cheap green plastic sleeve at the base broke of and the mop head stayed put with the metal end scrapping my tile leaving a light long scratch.
I contacted Sabco who kindly sent a replacement sleeve, the representative made the comment she did not see how the metal could scratch the tile. I sent a picture to show how it folded into a sharp end to scratch the tile.
Funny thing she a...sked to see a picture of the tile for the “ quality “ control team. No offer to help with the tile though just wanted a picture for their records. Needless to say I didn’t bother sending the image as I was not after something for free. I purchased a tile filler that was a similar colour and patched up the scratch. Within 3 days of the new part arriving two small plastic clips broke so I could not lock in the length I wanted. But this didn’t bother me so I kept using it. 2 weeks later the same green plastic sleeve broke.
Great mop for wooden floors
This mop works really well and the spin removes a lot of the water which is great for wooden floors. The only issue we have is the bottom of the pole which has pushed up so it comes off all the time. The plastic is too tight to move.
Breaks so easily!
I have bought the Sabco spin mop several times already as I tend to mop my floors everyday. It’s great except that the mop itself breaks so easily. No grip. I just bought one in January and it’s only March, and again the mop / head/ stick is broken. And there is no replacement except to have to buy the whole set!
5 STAR if the handle didnt need replacing.
I love this mop, 2x spins is enough to leave just enough water for washing my wood floors, without a soaking, spins well, but the small grip handle on the handle spin section over time has lost its grip, but I contacted Sabco yesterday and today they emailed and are sending me a revised handle FOC. I hope this mop then continues to work great. I even use it on my windows due to how much you can control the water in the mop head.
Purchased in July 2018 at Bunnings.
Leaves floor soaking wet and streaky
Bought this mop at Bunnings after seeing it on a set of pallets out the front thinking it would be great while my cleaners on holidays. Used it 4 times and have now binned it. Left little puddles of water in places and a completely streaky finish. Almost better to look at dirty tiles!! Don’t buy this, it’s a complete waste of time.
Very flimsy design
Bought the Spin Mop from Bunnings, only used it a few times and the locking clip on the handle broke making the whole item useless. Very poor flimsy design, looking at other reviews I see I am not the only person with this problem. From a company like Sabco you would expect to get a much better product. Just finished throwing it in the rubbish bin, what a waste of money.
I bought one of these sabco spin mops and only used it a few times before the clip on the handle broke, now the handle wont clip in and is completely useless. Its quite flimsy and not very strong and for $45, i cant afford to buy a whole new mop and bucket. It would be nice to be able to buy a replacement mop or for bunnings to exchange as i no longer have my receipt.
Might not buy it again
I loved this product initially how light weight it is when i have to mop my full house. Unfortunately the screw cap on the mop handle broke , and that is the end of that. I was not able to get a part replaced by bunnings where i bought it, there is also no extra spin mop i can buy it as a spare either. My only option was to buy the whole product again as a package . What a ripoff . Very disappointed
Waste Of Money
Takes a lot of effort to wring out completely.
Too much messing around to keep adjusting the length and adjusting the mop head before and after spinning.
The plastic on the head makes it difficult to get into corners and tight areas.
The bucket tilts and spills water everywhere when you carry it by the handle as the weight distribution is off.
Definatelty would not recommend this product. Easier and faster to mop by hand compared to using this.
Bought this yesterday and very disappointed...
1. Was expecting much less water residue on the floors. Does not appear to be ringing much water out
2. Dirt and dust appears to be trapped within the microfibre brushes and spent 20+ mins trying to dislodge this
3. Just found out from reviews below you can’t buy a replacement head. What a joke!
4. Not enough microfibre tassels. The head of the mop is plastic and scratches the floor when mopping
Let’s hope I can find the receipt.
Last Sabco product I ever buy as I bought a window cleaner too and the wiper does not appear straight hence I cant evenly dry off the water from the window
Handle falls apart
This is now the second one that I will be taking back and this time requesting a full refund sick of the handle coming apart continually and then having to mop with the small section otherwise I like the idea floors are dry so quick ,,,But very dissappointed in the handle
Badly designed mop head
After second use of mop the long handle part kept coming out of the mop head. On closer inspection I noticed there split in the green part that the long handle screws into. As this was a gift, I am not able to return the product. I have searched everywhere online to see if I can buy a replacement mop, but it appears you can only buy it as a set with the bucket. So frustrating.
Questions & Answers
Hi, I recently purchased a Sabco Spin mop from Bunnings & was very happy with it until the attachment at the end of the handle where the mop head goes split & now I am unable to tighten it to the handle & the mop head keeps falling off. I have tried to purchase a replacement handle but they are not available. I think the idea of the mop is a great idea but needs to be much sturdier. I am in my senior years & I found the mop really easy & light to use. Pam.
Good Morning Pam,
I'm really sorry to hear this has happened, and it's certainly not the experience we want any customer to have. We can send you a replacement mop handle section with clip. If you send me your address, I can get it in the post for you.
Hi Thank you so much for your quick response & I really appreciate you replacing the handle & Clip.
My Address is: Pam Saunders, 1358 Clarencetown Rd, Seaham. NSW 2324.
Thanks Pam. We will get this in the post for you.
Hello I sent a message to you a few days ago but I didn't receive a reply and the question seems to have vanished. I purchased a spin mop from Bunnings earlier this week but it came with no handle. It was marked down but ai hadn't understood this was the case so now have a problem. Can you help me please?
Good Morning Barbara,
We apologise if we missed your last message. did you take this back to Bunnings to let them know?
Hi, I have a spin mop and bucket. The plastic clip/lock on the handle has broken and the stick slides down while I'm cleaning. I would prefer to purchase just the mop and handle/stick as the bucket is still very good....and more importantly, we don't need more plastic going into landfill unnecessarily. I have been looking but can't find just the mop anywhere. Do you know where I can purchase one. Thank you, Rosanna Haynes
Good Morning Rosanna,
I'm so sorry to hear this has happened and it's certainly not the experience we want our customer to have. If you can inbox us your address and we can send you a replacement handle section to fix the issue. If you need anything else, or have any other questions, please let us know.
