Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Netxtown I had my doubts....
The hardest part of using this mixer is just getting one.
I bought 60 lb bags of Quikrete on sale....and at 3 bags to the load, it made short notice of the work. The work itself is a bit grueling - but at least the mixing part was as easy as easy gets. Pour in the water. Add the mix. Wait about 5 minutes. And dump.
I bought the unit fully assembled. The handles could be a bit more stable - but definitely not a show stopper. I didn't notice any motor strain, nor were there any leaks or inadequacies in the frame work. One thing to note is that the small footprint allows for easy movement in tight places.
All in all, I poured six 12ft x 1.5ft x 8" concrete runners for a fairly large home workshop using one form and doing one per day. Each runner used about 27 bags. And while my butt was dragging by the time I got to #6 - the mixer never missed a beat.

Went to Home depot and reted one of these mixers for the job I had to do. Well the mixer worked GREAT and cut the time down from the wheel barrow mixing. It was easy to use and dumped the the concrete with very little effort on my part. I liked it so well that I purchased one so I would have it for the next few jobs I have planned. It is very easy for the average person to use. If you need a mixer for a concrete job you need to check out this one even if you only rent it like I did the first time.

The product so far has performed admirably. I intentionally waited to submit a review until after use. I have mixed over 12 tons of concrete and mortar since purchase. The time saved in labor has paid for the purchase many times by now. Maintenance is simple, though lubrication to the flywheel is needed and not suggested. I would have liked to see slightly sturdier construction of the frame(personal opinion) , but I have not had a problem yet. The plastic drum is quite sturdy and rinses clean. If any concrete dries, it tends to break away on future mixes. I would recommend this product to anyone who works with concrete or mortar on a small to moderate scale.

Just used it to mix 34 bags of Concrete.
I used to have a Harbor Freight, sold it used a few years ago.
That one was an exercise in putting together, this one took a minute, literally.
A couple of thing to bear in mind. You will need a grease gun, there are two nipples, and you can not dump into a wheel barrow, too low, you can use it as a wheelbarrow sort of for short distances.
Cleans up very nicely.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MFO1 This mixer is just what .
I've had this Kushlan electric cement mixer less than a week an already mixed 45 premix bags by myself- its a real pleasure to use. Makes mixing concrete easy! A rock solid compact design and just the right height. Wheel barrow design means I can position the mixer, cut the premix bag open on the back of my pickup truck, and dump the dry mix directly into the mixer without lifting the 80 lb bag. Then I add water, mix and dump right into the footing holes. Easy and no back strain... I can't ask for anything more. Oh, and its really easy to clean, too. Thanks, Kushlan!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by james54 This is a good mixer, the one thing we found bad was that it leaks if you put the water in first, the tub has not been sealed properly.
