Rated 5 out of 5 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 out of 5 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 out of 5 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 out of 5 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 out of 5 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
