Concrete Mixer Question


I just bought a small concrete mixer, 3.5cuft. I was wondering whats the best way to take care of it. Im worried about under neith where the motor runs it. It looks like it was greased at one time and now its some nasty tary junk. Should I leave this bare metal or should it be greased?

Re: Concrete Mixer Question


Grease it often and well. If you keep it lightly coated with diesel (on the outside, of course), it will remain clean.

I bet it was those yellow wasps, I seen a tv special on them and they are some sort of mix between yellow jackets and some sort of asain wasp or something like that. But the wasp from japan or where ever sends out wasp to make a new nest like every 3 days. This is why you see alot of small nest all the time. I hate those things, the brown wasp is very rare here now.
