Concrete Mixer

I'm looking to purchase a portable electric concrete mixer. Not as concerned with price as I am quality. I saw this one :Kushlan Products, Inc. Model 600 W Concrete Mixer Model 600W-053509 at Home Depot. [IMG]file:///C:/DOCUME%7E1/Cary/LOCALS%7E1/Temp/moz-screenshot-1.jpg[/IMG] Does anyone have any experience with it. Would like some suggestions. Thx [IMG]file:///C:/DOCUME%7E1/Cary/LOCALS%7E1/Temp/moz-screenshot.jpg[/IMG]

Re: Concrete Mixer

Personally, unless you use it a couple times a year or plan on buying a couple of them per year, that thing is junk.

This is the one we sell:

It is about twice the cost, but worth it. My personal one is almost 10 years old and has many, many yards of concrete and mortar run through it.

Re: Concrete Mixer

the mixer that the op is talking about is a decent one. i have it and it works well for what i need it to do. can mix 2+ bags with ease and it is mobile because of the wheelbarrel frame. and is stable because it has two front wheels so you can dump where you need it.

Re: Concrete Mixer

I was wrong, anyway. Mine is this one (on the stand), with a metal drum.

It is 14 years old not 10.

Re: Concrete Mixer

I have the Belle 150. Bought it used from my local rental place. Trouble free for the last 3 years. I use it occasionally to pour small footings for steps or small slabs on grade for stone jobs.
