Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by carolyn24 The mixer works great once it's assembled -but takes a long time to assemble and directions a little hard to follow. However, a great cement mixer for the price. Sturdy but lightweight enough that it's easy to move.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Speedo Been waiting until my son and I finished this home project before reviewing the mixer. Just finished pouring approximately nine yards of concrete through this mixer. Approximately ten tons of gravel, six tons of sand and over two tons of Portland cement. The little mixer done just as good on the first load as the last. Never tried to over load it. Kept it under the 180lb. Rating. Easy to assemble and move around. Would definitely purchase another one.

So easy to assemble. All the nuts and bolts were in marked bags corresponding to the assembly steps. Packaged well. Runs smooth and relatively quiet for a mixer. I was deciding between this one and the red one for a few bucks cheaper and figured the bigger hp motor would work better.

I am not an expert on this type of equipment since I am less than a novice at cement work. That said the few times that I have used my new mixer it has worked very well. So far I've used about 15 - 90 lbs. bags with no problems.
One of the few problems I have had is when I opened the cardboard box that the mixer was shipped in. That's when I found that the slotted track that runs around the equator of the barrel where the gear that spins it around was bent due to being damaged in shipping.
I could have driven the 40 miles round trip to he nearest Home Depot and taken it back and then waited another week or so for the next one to show up and chance that it would not be damaged as well, or I could get out my big lead hammer and nudge it back into shape.
It seems to work fine, but it does make some noise when that area passes over the gear on each rotation. Not that big of deal for me. Each time I've used it I've cleaned it up and it still looks like new even inside the barrel. I called Home Depot and told them about the damage and they issued me a 10% credit back on my credit card. So Bottom line, like the subject line reads "Great Product Poorly Packaged". That's why I have only given it 4 stars rather than the 5 it might deserve.
One other problem I had was with the handle that you use to move the barrel around with. When I was putting this all together I had to also re-work the bottom of the handle where it rest against the axle. There is a spring that needs to be inserted into the base but it was bent and I had to also do some hammering with a large screw driver to get it from an oval into a circle. Not a big deal but worth mentioning.

Well got this mixer from Special Buy of the Day. I have a couple issues with this mixer, but lets start with the good points. Quality of material & motor is fair & value is ok or fair to give it the benefit of the $. The issues that came up are, you can not unload cement from drum into wheelbarrel because of center lower bar & is to low for wheelbarrel. So you must empty drum by hand. 2nd issue, is that 5gal. bucket's are not wide enough to catch cement you are unloading from drum. Tried many items to unload into but all were not wide enough. I am mixing concrete to Use, not waste on ground!!!Sorry to say, I would Not recommend this item to anyone. Lesson learned.... UC
