Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Works great I use a paint mixer attached to my drill to stir a very viscous product that I make. The first one I bought at another hardware store and it had a round shaft. It worked for a while, but eventually the drill chuck could not grip it and I had to go searching for a replacement. I went to Home Depot and bought a really heavy duty one that is elsewhere on this website. It's supposed to fit in a drill with a ⅜ inch chuck. It would not fit in either of my drills. I returned to the store and bought this one. It's smaller than the heavy duty one I bought but it works great in a five gallon bucket. It has a hexagonal shaped shaft which was the main thing I was looking for. The construction quality seems to be good so I expect it to last. It was $1.00 more than the heavier duty one though. I don't know why. Perhaps because of the plastic helix fins which do a great job of creating a vortex to mix the product. April 30, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Stirs and aerates well. This works great for mixing and aerating a batch of mead! (Which is why I bought it!) January 22, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Worked Great! Used this to mix 5 gal buckets of paint and deck stain. Did a great job of getting in the corners of a slightly dented bucket with the rubber end (no worrying about any little metal shavings ending up in the sprayer either). May 20, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Works great! I used it to mix some Trowel Patch. Had no problems and worked as advertised. If there is a downside, it is that it is a little bit difficult to get in-between the fins to clean it afterwards. July 1, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Good for light mixing I use this mixer for paint, joint compound, and patching compound. I use a steel paddle for mortar and other more abrasive material, but it might be okay for single use. It mixes quickly and evenly and I'm satisfied so far. April 24, 2013
