Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by K8o8 easy assembly for some
It works as it should as long as you assemble it corectly and dint leave it in the rain! To the person who posted a photo of him using 2x4s to prop the handles up to get the correct angle its because hou have the pivot point where the removable pin is wrong you need to remove the pin and spin it 180 and put the pin back then the mixer wont be able to tilt back very far. As far as the T bolt and motor shripping this is a cheap mixer buy it use it and if it strips homedepot will replace it. Or spend a few more bucks buy the one with the plastic drum and good luck or you can pay 160 a week to rent a $350 mixer

This thing is CHEAP! The RPMs is way to low, the motor stinks. I had 2 helpers out working this thing easy. I'm a contractor and I've rented tons of these mobliemixers and after reading reviews and comparing products I thought this was it but I was very disappointed. I returned it immediately. Maybe if you have all day to mix a hand full of bags it'll work but trust me it won't keep up if you really try to work it.

Mixer was easy to assemble and disassemble for storage. Sure beats mixing in a wheel barrow. Cut my time in half. Add water then add a shovel of material at a time. Works great.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Mike Doe what it's supposed to do.
Relatively heavy but one person can assemble in 15 minutes. Mixes well from 40# to 160# of concrete mix. Stable when mixing on dirt lot, well balanced for unloading.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by kenpen Works very well
I mixed and poured over a hundred 60 lb bags of ready-mix concrete with this mixer for an antenna tower foundation and anchors.
The mixer looks top-heavy and unstable but it is not. I used it on uneven ground in a wooded area with about 6-12 inches of peat and never had a problem. It is a little awkward to move on uneven ground but I moved it around the site by myself.
Assembly required only a few minutes. Instructions were clear although they really are not needed. Disassembly at the end of the job was just as easy.
The bowl is advertised as 5 cu. ft but I put no more than 2 cu. ft. in it at a time. That is four bags of ready-mix concrete at around 1/2 cu. ft. per bag. Sometimes I only mixed three bags. Mixing is fast and easy and when ready to pour the bowl is easy to control and is stable. For the main location, I built a concrete chute from scrap wood and this worked very well.
At three locations I had to pour into a 5 gal. bucket and lift the bucket into the hole and forms. Pouring into the bucket was a little sloppy but I did not waste much.
I cleaned the mixer at the end of each day and had no problems with residual, dried concrete.
The electric motor is good quality and the whole unit makes very little noise.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by B2Dave Great little mixer
I've had this mixer for 6 months now and really enjoy using it. I was tired of breaking my back mixing concrete in a wheel barrow so I decided to try this one out. What a great investment. It easily handles 2 80lb bags at a time. Assembly was easy and I put it together by myself in about 30 minutes. The down side is I don't have an excuse not to do those cement chores around the house anymore.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MakinBugBoxes Efficient design, performed its function well.
It took 10 minutes to assemble the cement mixer by myself, it would have gone faster with another person helping. The extra T-bolt will certainly be appreciated in the future. We ran the mixer steadily for a day, pushing out 52 bags of premix to pour footings. The motor didn't heat up at all. Three days later, we mixed mortar for concrete block installation, only 7 bags worth so it was not a problem for the mixer. The mixer was easily relocated to be close to the work. Two days after the mortar had set, we used the mixer to prepare soil for the raised bed, mixing sand, peat moss, the native clay soil and compost. Again, the mixer ran steadily for most of a day on this task. It took us a week to go from bare ground to a planted raised bed and this tool made it possible.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by hectoracuna Like a Cuisinart for the handyman.
It's okay if you feel like mixing 1200 pounds of concrete with a shovel and tub. I had such a chore to do on a weekend and chose instead to save my back an let this portable mixed do the hard work for me. Performed admirably. The unit is light enough to roll around, yet heavy enough to handle the load. Assembly was simple. As with your Cuisinart, you might have to scrape the sides of the tub to get all the dry stuff the sticks to the (in)sides. I used a small shovel for that. Not so apprehensive to do those concrete repairs or projects any more. Probably not the unit for a large construction site because of it's capacity, but a great tool for around the ranch.
