This product was purchased in August. The plastic of the top wringer portion broke down the center of the front about one month ago, however, we were able to zip-tie it together and continue using it. Unfortunately, it has now broken down the side as well and can no longer be used at all. I would not recommend this product for anything other than very occasional at-home use. Not meant to be used commercially.

I didn't write a review for this item until I had used it for awhile; as a result I also lowered my original rating, here's why: 1) Assembly was pretty straight-forward except the wheels. No matter how much I pounded, lubed, cajoled, and cursed I could not get the wheel stems to seat fully into their holes on the bucket base. I'm going to set it outside, upside down in the heat of summer and try again to fully seat them. I only need 1/2" on each wheel. 2) Again, the wheels... they roll very easy (very good) but they do not lock (very bad). As a result you must stand in front of the bucket and apply pressure to the wringer against your body. If you apply pressure from behind, away from you, you could end up on your face. I tried bracing the bucket against a wall but I kept banging my head when I leaned forward for more leverage, and also put cleaning solution and dirty mop marks on said wall as I moved the mop in and out of the bucket (wife didn't appreciate that); best way is to use your body and wring into yourself. 3) The wringer itself is plastic; sturdy, but when you apply real pressure it tends to give so you never get a mop without some liquid dripping from it (see #2 "the wall"). This item is good for apts. or small to medium size houses; large homes are iffy and janitorial use is out of the question.

I'm using this as a clothes wringer. I was worried that the wringer wouldn't be large enough but I washed out some thick sweatpants and they did fine. I'm thinking the jeans ought to be okay too. I also did a load of wash cloths and towels and had no problem at all and a load of t-shirts and shorts with no problems. The trick to getting the most water out is to put enough laundry in the wringer to be able to squeeze it out.

Since I'm doing laundry outside, I found it easy to empty out the water the rim is just right for holding a water hose so that it doesn't lay on the ground. The hand washer/plunger I bought fits perfectly in the base so that I have a clean place to set it.

I use two buckets. 1. To wash in. 2. To do first rinse. And then I use the wringer for the wringing and final rinse with a water hose. It's awesome!

So while amazon seemed to think I was starting a custodial business with it's suggestions for a while, I love having this for my home. I got tired of all the garbage they sell at the grocery store with the crap sponge heads that are gross after a couple of uses. I found myself cursing at one such product and wishing I had the trusty old mop bucket I used to use back in my food service days. Fortunately a real job affords such niceties, and now I'll never have to buy another garbage mop bucket combo disposable planned obsolescence money sink again.

As for the actual product, it's great, it's got a notch for the mop to rest in, the wheels are good quality, the handle seems solid, along with the wringer. Balance can be a little off pulling by the handle in some directions, but nothing I'd dock points for.

I hand wash my clothes and use the bucket that came with this to wash them in with a Breathing Mobile Washer. I then use the wringer to get a lot of the water out. If this is what you are after, then I couldn't recommend this product more. After I wring them, I hang them up on a rack in my baththub and point a fan at them on low. They dry in about 24 hours. It is exactly what I needed. Hand washing is already exhausting, so I needed a bit of help in the wringing department. The casters don't come attached which was important for what I wanted to use it for in case anyone else was curious.

The bucket is sturdy, rolls easily, doesn't splash water when rolling, and the mop fits perfectly. It is easy to squeeze the handle to wring out the water in the mop. I stand in front of the bucket and it stays in place when using the wringer handle. My husband places his foot in front of one of the wheels when he uses the wringer handle. Either way works great. The top wringer portion goes on and comes off easily when necessary. The handle on the bottom part makes emptying the water a snap. The wringer does an excellent job of removing lots of water from the mop. I really can't find anything to complain about regarding this bucket. The price was far less than other comparable buckets. I'm 60 years old and my husband is 69 years old and we have been using this bucket once or twice a week for about a month now for moping the kitchen, two baths, porch, sunroom, and utility room. We are very pleased with this bucket and would recommend it to others.

This will get light home use, so it is a good bet to hold up under the strain of mop ringing. I purchased this as an answer to the cheap round bucks we've used for years with disappointing results. But I am concerned that the rear wall of the bucket, which is plastic without metal reinforcement, so it gives (bends) somewhat as the long metal lever is coming down. It seems as if something's got to give (break) but maybe not since this product gets pretty good reviews. Will update as time and experience increase.

I'd rate this as good for household or light janitorial work. Holding up very well so far, and the materials used seem to be adequate to the task. I use mine to mop hard flooring throughout the house and concrete in the basement. I'd prefer if the wringer were positioned a little lower into the bucket so I'm not bashing into the low ceilings in the basement but with a little care in mop handling it's not a huge issue. I prefer using the old timey rag mops to the sponge loaded jobs, you can get a lot more water on the floor and pick it back up quickly if you need to, which makes it easier to pull up tough spots.

I like this unit, I just wish that it wasn't as stout. Instead I would have wished for it to being taller, but I do understand that it's designed to have a lower center of gravity and help stop spilling water/etc when in motion.

Nevertheless, it's a high quality product. By now, I thought that I would have broken a piece of the plastic on the backing just below the squeezing mechanism. I typically apply the squeeze of death trying to wring out as much water from the mop head as possible because of the high humidity in my basement trying to eliminate any mildew or mold formation. If it can survive that, it's a very good unit for every day applications and should last forever.
