Cement Mixer Tips

Wear a face-mask never breathe in cement dust.
Wet concrete releases a skin-damaging alkali wash it off immediately with water if youre splashed.
Make sure you know where the mixer OFF switch is.
With electric mixers, make sure the power supply is routed through an RCD.
Make sure the mixer is positioned on a firm and level surface (preferably a slab of concrete that can be hosed down afterwards).
Its best to measure mix ratios in a bucket rather than by the shovel load.
Start the machine running at 45°. Keep it running until all the mixture is out.
Add water in small amounts only.
After use, clean the drum straight away with a shovel-load of ballast and some water let it run for 5 minutes. Tip out, then hose thoroughly.

That's an Irish tumble drier :-D

these are a pain in the **** to put together, you would not believe it, its like a 100 quid mechano set ;-)

stick to a bell mixer

Defo don't buy if its only got 200watt motor plus if your planning on doing any large jobs buy a Bell mixer which you can just sell after you have finished the job and get most of your money back coz they hold there value:)

If you have some small DIY jobs to do, it is probably more cost-effective to get this, do the jobs and then flog it for £40 - cheaper than renting.

If your in the trade, then you should get a 'proper' one. Hence why it says 'DIY' in the description.

Dunno about putting it together, but I expect it is similar to the £140 - £150 quid ones from B&Q.

Oh, and it has a 3 year warranty!

Seemed like a good deal to me, for what you are paying.

A 200 watt motor is going to be far too under powered. A new or second hand Belle would be a far better buy. They go on for years if you clean them properly after use.

yeah, top marks for sharing mate, this is just my own opinion, i bought one like it to do my garden, and i sold it on for about 80 quid, but int he end it was under strain and slipping on the belt, but i was mixing mammoth mixes with him,
