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.

    Can this be used to steam clean carpets? I.e. if i pore some steam cleaning fluid on the carpet then vacuum it up using this vac, will it work?

      Yes, I also used a cleaning brush on a drill and then vacuumed up the water on car floor mats

        Yeah many channels on youtube show how to do this - such as motoringbox, chrisfix etc.

        Here's one where he shows how to clean car interior with bucket, sponge and a wet vac. And look at the gross slime that comes out of the seats!!
        https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GLlfFRIVYbo

        Sponge carpets with sponge, and/or drill brush. Then use pressure washer to clean off (if car mats that can be taken out and put on driveway), then suck dry with wet vac, leave in sun to final dry.

    How can I get a 12m hose so I don’t have to lug it around the garage?? Looking at ducted vacuum units but they’re also $500

    •  

      12m hose would increase friction exponentially and make the device useless.

        Thanks mate. Looks like I’ll need a ducted unit then which is good for pipe work up to 30m plus.

        •  

          Depending on your workshop setup you could have multiple units serving different workstations, i.e. one vac to table saw, one for mitre station etc. Got mine for $99 and have lugged around, I only use the shop occasionally so am considering just buying an other unit or 2 at $59.

      "lug around" - this thing is on wheels just pull it around the car??

      Perhaps you just need an extension lead - easy done: https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/609889

      •  

        as in move it and unplug the hose for different work stations

      •  

        Yes it's on wheels.

  •  

    Silly question but will this still work without anything plugged into the power takeoff. And is there a standard for the hoses, like can the suction hose on this be connected to a ozito sander.

    •  

      Yes, it can work standalone.

    •  

      The power switch seems to be a rocker switch with off in the middle - so perhaps one way is "ON" and the other way is "power take off ON".

      •  

        this is exactly how the unit works

    Hope someone can guide- small drain out my house is clogging up with small red lava rock previous house owner spread across the open hole. Just wondering if this can be useful in pulling them out?

    Would something like this do the job of sucking thick dust from the attic, without it just spraying out the vacuums ass or instaclogging filters?

      Yes, no problems. It will happily suck it up and keep it contained.

      •  

        awesome, might go this route but will check out the PVA mentioned below too. Thanks mate

    • +4 votes

      there is a method to removing thick dust professionally. I would not use a vacuum cleaner for large areas, but small roof space at home may be ok, but not ideal. From what I have seen on my sites they spray a pva glue that bonds the thick dust and after it dries you can pick up the pieces and place in a bag.. clean job.

        Ozito doesn't have powerpass pricing anyway,

        and better not to use it because they told me it gives 3-months warranty instead of the 5-years.

        •  

          The whole no warranty for Powerpass purchases is BS. Used to be an issue with Ryobi too, has been mentioned a few times before.
          Warranty still applies if you buy on a Powerpass, apparently Ozito themselves have stated this.

          If you are unlucky to get this response from Bunnings, you need to draw on your inner Karen (if you are only using for DIY of course, guess need to be reasonable)

          Actually the 5 year warranty doesn't even specifically exclude trade use, only says "Intended for DIY"

          The 3 year warranty on this vac does however.
          "The following actions will result in the warranty being void - Professional, industrial or high frequency use."

  •  

    Just grabbed one of these from Bunnings. I noticed in some earlier comments that the Power Take Off Socket has a maximum so I can't run my 2000W Mitre Saw through it, would both of these run on the same powerboard OK or need to be plugged into two different wall sockets completely to run at same time?

    • +2 votes

      most outlets would be rated at 10A (2400W) so definitely not off the same GPO. you might get away with different GPOs if you had a 16A circuit (16*240 = 3840W). best would be off 2 completely independent circuits

      • +1 vote

        The power takeoff socket isn't really practical then. Most power tools would exceed the limit.
        In real world applications, what could you run from it at the same time the vacuum was functioning?

        • +2 votes

          I pulled it apart, the relay inside is rated at 10A. The reason that they don’t quote 2400W is that the power tool plus the vacuum running shouldn’t exceed 2400W (10A @ 240V)… if you do choose to try that, the vacuum should be fine but you’ll be exceeding the power point rating.
          Something similar to plugging two kettles into a double power point, that can be done but you’re drawing 4000+ W from one circuit.

    I want this, but all the tools I would use with it exceeds the power limit.

    Would this be fine to vacuum up a pool of water without any electrocution risk?

    My mother in law has some water damage in the house which leaks into their empty basement - it looks almost like a baby swimming pool. They have to manually scoop up the water using buckets. They're quite elderly so I don't think they can sustainably do this for too long. Hence why I'm thinking there must be a solution for this (apart from moving houses or fixing the damage at this point due to financial reasons) - would this wet vac work in the meantime?

    Does it also automatically stop when the tank reaches capacity (e.g does it have a plastic float that cuts the suction off if the tank gets too full?) Don't need it overflowing and electrocuting someone or if it damages the product?

    Are there any maintenance needed as well that I should be aware of (filter replacement or anything?)? Happy to hear of any other suggestions as well or product recommendations. Thanks everyone.

      Why don’t you buy a bilge pump and run it off a battery? SEAFLO Bilge Pump Group https://www.amazon.com.au/dp/B01MQJAVF2

      or this one
      https://www.bunnings.com.au/ozito-350w-dirty-water-submersib...

      •  

        The submersible pump we did use, but because of the physical design of its base, it doesn't detect/remove the water when the water level is too low. Would the bilge pump be better in this case or same issue?

    •  

      there is a free cylinder in the middle, a smaller than a 330ml that looks to be the plastic float.

      Bear in mind the tank only holds 20 litres.

      Then they have to wheel/carry the vacuum somewhere to empty the 20 litres of water.

      Unless there is a drain they can easily tip the water into, I don’t think them living a 20+ kg up to a sink/bath to empty is sustainable either.

      •  

        That's a good point - I did not consider the emptying aspect - thanks Maltopia.

    •  

      Standard way of dealing with this is to cut a hole in the floor of the basement, and put a submersible pump in that has a float. That way, water flows into the hole, and the pump kicks in automatically to pump it away.

      It's called a sump pump

      •  

        That's great, thanks for pointing this out - I will look into it. We're trying to keep solutions economical though - would it be costly to hire someone to drill a hole in the floor? Or it's a worthwhile investment you're saying?

          I am the prince of cheapskates when it comes to spending money. I have lived in houses with dozens of critical problems where money was very tight so only the most urgent got attended to, so when I say this I hope you'll give it it's deserved weight:
          Just do it.

          Reoccuring water in the basement is no trivial matter. The health effects on whomever is living there will be severe, and if they're elderly or have a weak immune system it may even be what kills them.
          If that isn't enough, water seeps into the subsoil and erodes it, causing the house to become unstable. In as little as 5 years cracks can start to appear on the walls and parts of the house may even collapse.

          The consequences are too big for what it costs to remedy ($200 if you're handy, $1000-$1500 if you have to pay someone else)

    Guys, how would the Ryobi 20L Stainless Steel Wet Dry Workshop Vacuum compare against this Ozito model?

    https://www.bunnings.com.au/ryobi-20l-stainless-steel-wet-dr...

    Note, there is no Power Take Off function (which isn't all that important, IMHO).

    •  

      If Power take off function is not important(for you), then Ozito is still the winner as it's 40% cheaper. Unless you are happy to pay an extra 40$ for the looks :P

    Bought both this model and the Aldi one to do the comparison. The suction seemed the same maybe the Aldi vac was a little more powerful. The noise measurement was roughly the same 90-100 dB, but sometimes the Aldi had an additional high-pitched noise. The quality of the body and accessories seemed similar. Finally, I decided to keep Aldi because of having almost twice volume, having a drain on the bottom of the drum, and HEPA filter.

    •  

      I bought the ozito used it for 30mins and the machine suction like died, going to return the unit today. I don't know if I got a bad unit or what. The first 5mins out of the box had good suction

      •  

        are you sure it the pipe is not clogged somewhere

        •  

          I am pretty sure there was no clogging.

          •  

            @happydragon: did you by any chance tip the thing over when the motor was on? There is a round piece inside the cage(where the filter goes) that blocks the flow. It happened to me twice when I accidentally tipped the vacuum over. When this happens you can hear the motor noise changing(just like when the hoses are clogged) and there is no suction.
            I’m not sure, but this pice might be a kind of float valve, it rises and blocks the motor hole when the bucket is full of water? Normally the piece is sitting at the bottom of the cage allowing flow to the motor

      the better filter is a significant difference.

    •  

      First, I thought the ALDI one will be crap based on the experience of this OzBargainer here: https://www.ozbargain.com.au/comment/10197712/redir
      Now, I am completely swayed by your comments:

      because of having almost twice volume, having a drain on the bottom of the drum, and HEPA filter.

      FWIW, both models have a 3-year replacement warranty.
      On the downside if it comes down to warranty issues, it will be easier to deal with Bunnings than ALDI.
