Ozito 1250W 20L Wet and Dry Vacuum with Power Take off $59 C&C Only @ Bunnings

1610

Usually $99. This one is the Power Take Off version which means that it activates if there is load put on by another tool.

  • Power Take Off Socket
  • 20L Stainless Steel Tank
  • Wet & Dry Vacuuming
  • Blower Function
  • Space Saving Accessory Mount

This Ozito Wet & Dry Vac with power take off socket is ideal for cleaning dirt or liquid from around the garage, workshop or patio. With castors for greater mobility, and an easy transport carry handle, it’s great for cleaning up around the home and shed after renovations or DIY projects.

The power take off function automatically starts the vacuum when a connected power tool is switched on; simply plug the power tool into the integrated power socket and use the vacuum for dust extraction while you work. Wood shavings or leaves can also be blown into a pile for easy removal by connecting the hose to the blower port on the rear of the motor.

Other features include an easy clean stainless steel tank for durability and strength, a space saving accessory mount and a cable bracket to keep cables neat when not in use. The included floor tool attachment can be used on tiles and hard floors, whilst the crevice tool allows you to vacuum in hard to reach areas.

The box says it has a max suction of 180 millibar.

      The Ozito one is probably no different, but I have had a bad experience with the Aldi vac. The seal at the bottom of the drum rusted out after a few months - despite proper care - rendering the entire unit useless and ended up on hard rubbish.

      •  

        ALDI tend to change models / manufacturers every year.
        I am pretty sure this is the first time I have seen this product under the FERREX brand.

        Nonetheless, it could be equally dodgy.

        •  

          Fwiw Aldi have moved heaps (if not all?) of Workzone power tools under the ferrex brand

          • +1 vote

            @harro112: That's right. Last year, it was the Workzone brand and hence different supplier.
            Regardless, they are all made in China with comparable quality.

              @DoctorCalculon: Makita/dewalt/Milwaukees are also made in China as well as almost everything else in the world. QC is the stuff that matters

      But 50 less Ws

      •  

        they are juggling the power. 2400w total, 1200w motor + 1200w power take-off vs 1250w motor + 1150w power take-off

        but nearly twice the capacity (35L vs 20L)

  •  

    That's a nice feature for such a cheap unit, think I'll go grab one tonight.

    I have used this during my DIY home renovation from 2 years ago. Sucks everything, no issue at all. Still works perfectly .

  • +6 votes

    this think is awesome.
    I have the one for $65 that doesn't have the toll-power-on thing.
    +1 over aldi as bags are readily available at Bunnings.
    I got this over the Ryobi one as Ozito bags are cheaper.

    I absolutely abuse this is guy and it still performs amazingly.

    As with an Vac, just need to replace the bags regularly.

    •  

      How much is a bad and how often do you replace?

      • +5 votes

        You don't need to use the bag all the time. I've never used the bag and just empty the drum.

        • +5 votes

          agree, I have had my ozito wet and dry for around 6 years and never used a bag…. just use the paper filter included (and haven't changed that either). I have used it for wood shavings, plasterboard dust, concrete dust etc.

    • -3 votes

      So tell me how the bags perform when sucking up damp or wet material.

      • +1 vote

        You don't use a bag in the wet mode. As stated you can do the same in dry mode, but be prepared to clean the filter a lot more often.

        • +1 vote

          Correct - wet mode uses a different filter and just goes into the metal drum. Rinse this out when done.

          Dry mode uses a different filter in which you can use the bag as optional. I choose to so I don't have to clean the filter more often. Bags are only a few dollars. I just remove the bag when using it in wet mode.

      Same - no issues with mine.

      Yeh we have too many vacs at home and nowhere to store em. Tried to abuse this unit to death but it still survives. Keeps going, nearly invincible. Sucks everything and I leave it dirty, e.g. never clean it and still delivers. Gets left outside as well.

    •  

      pretty much all the bags are the same. I use ozito in an old ryobi before they went baby poop green

    Can we use it inside the house ? Any reviews? Stick vacuums are too expensive and hasn't been sufficient for us.

    • +6 votes

      No, these are not really designed for indoors. They don't have the HEPA filtration or have proper dusting tools/floor attachments. Great for garages, cars and wet vacuuming. But I would not use it inside. Plus these vacuums are usually very noisy.

      •  

        can these be used to clean the BBQ?(ash and pieces of charcoal, not hot of course)

        • +2 votes

          Yes and you can suck hot coals for about 12 seconds

          We use the smaller one to clean out the ash and coals (cold) out of our smoker. Been using for over a year once a week and it's never been an issue

      The filter may not be good enough to be used indoors. It might be worth buying a decent corded Miele or Dyson.

      •  

        Kirby……does everything a Dyson can do but better……or so they say…

      •  

        The ALDI one has a HEPA filter. So, can it be used indoors for vacuuming (e.g. wet carpet cleaning)?

    • +2 votes

      Yes this would be fine as your normal vacuum as long as you are ok with the disadvantages mentioned by others.

    • +1 vote

      I had one of these in a student share house. Provided you don't need HEPA, it's brilliant.

      On the other hand, the Bunnings one is at Bunnings and is easily found at Bunnings without driving to all the other Bunnings to see if those Bunningses have it.

        That pretty much sums up Aldi special buys

  • +2 votes

    I own one of these also and it's EXCELLENT. If it broke tomorrow I'd definitely go and buy another one.

    The only thing I'd really, really like is if the bag could be emptied and replaced. Mine's usually full of sawdust and shavings which I put straight into the garden. It'd be easier if the bag could be opened and emptied more easily. Still, small price to pay.

    • +1 vote

      Can't it be used without a bag?

      • +2 votes

        would block up the motor.

        I made a pretty simple DIY dust extractor with a pail bucket and two 45-degree pipes.

        Plenty of videos on youtube to make your own.

          Comments above say it can be used dry without a bag?

          • -2 votes

            @whitelie: yeah for wet suction since no dust to clog up the filter

          • +2 votes

            @whitelie: You can use it without the collector bag for dry vacuuming. There is a blue filter cover that sits over the motor and you can just empty the drum. I've never used a collector bag.

        •  

          Thanks for the tip! This would make my life much easier!

      If mine broke tomorrow, Bunnings would give me another one on the spot. Their 3 year Ozito exchange warranty is excellent.

      I reuse my Kirby bags by cutting open one end, dumping contents, folding over cut end, wipe clean, join with masking tape, duct tape over that. Bag is now a couple of cm shorter, but works the same.

      If you're using as a tool vac, definitely look at putting a dust collector in line before it.

      You can build your own with a bucket and some pipe or get something like this. (Gone up a bit since I bought one, was only about $18 back then).

      You won't need a bag any more and won't get a spec of sawdust in the vacuum.

      •  

        I bought one of these, but trying to find the fittings to connect to the vac and tools is proving difficult, as the cyclone has big 50mm connections…

    Would this work well to vacuum an outdoor patio? Get a lot of possum poop and leaves/tree debris that a normal vacuum couldn't handle

    • +1 vote

      I used mine yesterday to suck up spiders, webs, some leaves, mud wasp nests, etc. Worked really well. I was using the bag as no moisture where I was. If lots of leaves and you didn't use a bag, I think you'd need to clear the motor filter cover fairly often as leaves would be sucked up to it (use without bag intended for water which is heavier). I haven't tried dry leaves without bag but others here may be able to comment?

    •  

      Yes I use mine for possum poo, cobwebs, and small leaves. Big leaves and sticks clog it up but my process is pick up the big stuff by hand (or with a brush and shovel) and this vac will clean up the rest.

  • +3 votes

    Can this be used to suck/clean leaves out of gutters?

  • +1 vote

    The only thing is that the Ozito one doesn't have an in-built drainage plug, which would be useful when cleaning liquid

    • +3 votes

      the plug hole thread would be covered in soot after a few uses and before you know it would leak. I prefer to tip out the drum as easier and faster

  •  

    These are great but also recommend the battery ones which make life a lot easier without the cord. One 4mah batt usually lasts me about an hour only though.

    • +4 votes

      That's for a totally different use case than this one is designed for.

      •  

        Actually i use it for pretty much all my tools, table saw, sander, etc. It does the job without taking up too much space and packing away easier.

        •  

          It can't turn on automatically when you turn on your power tools though can it. That's the great feature of this one, otherwise it's just a basic vacuum.

    •  

      As above this one is designed for use as a shop vac for use with tools

      •  

        The cordless is great attached to handheld tools like sander and jigsaw in my experience. Doesn't help much for things like the mitre saw though…

    These any good for carpet cleaning (wet)?

    Is it worth spending $6 more for the stainless steel - you don't get the power take off though?
    Ozito 1250W 20L Stainless Wet And Dry Vacuum $65

      This one is stainless steel.

        Thanks just reread that too - the $65 one must be an older model..

        • +2 votes

          The $65 is the "budget" version with less accessories and no power take off. The one in this post has been discounted from $99 to compete against the Aldi one.

          •  

            @skid: But isn't the $65 one saying it's good for outdoors mean it's different somehow? Am looking for one of those vacs that sucks water out of fabric couches and the like. Would either of these do that?

    •  

      This one is also stainless steel. Will edit the description.

    • +1 vote

      This one is 20L Stainless Steel Tank, and it was $99 and bunnings reduced the price to match the Aldi's one. So don't buy the $65 one when this one on sale

    Can this be used to clean carpets after a wet clean… Ie to suck the water/shampoo off it. I want to use it to deep clean car like Chrisfix.

      Yes after you have sponged the carpets, you can suck it dry using this.

    Be careful with what you plug into the power takeoff socket, I fried one socket with a drop down table saw…
    I believe that there is a max

    • +1 vote

      Yes 1150W

      •  

        Makes sense. Most household sockets are 10amp max. 220V. =2200W max.

          230-240V

    •  

      Max 1150W, I'd guess (= 2400W - 1250W)

      •  

        hm my drop saw is 1430W.

        Guessing that would be over the limit

    •  

      It is rated 1250W. If it sucks too much power your switchboard RCD will trip.

      • +2 votes

        Most GPO’s would be on a16A breaker. The CB should trip is current is exceeded, not the RCD.

        •  

          I stand corrected.

          RCD = Residual Current Device — Designed for human safety, i.e. switching off current flow if someone were to touch a live wire.
          CB = Circuit Breaker — Disrupt the circuit to prevent damage caused by overcurrent.

    •  

      Thanks, was considering it for my mitre saw, buy it's 1900W, so I guess no good…

      •  

        I guess we just have to turn it on manually.

        Would be the same thing as working with my cordless tools with suction

          Yeah, currently do that with the cordless shop vac, but my experience is I forget to turn it on for about 50% of cuts, so I was hoping to avoid that…
