      I have been working with this mixer for 5 days and so far I used approximately 65 bags of concrete mix of 60 pounds each. The engine runs smoothly and I did not encounter any issue with it. I assembled the unit myself and it was an easy process. I have been pouring 3 bags of concrete mix of 60 pounds each in the mixer andIt did the job exactly the way I expected. I made a video on youtube. For those interested please watch the video on https://youtu.be/NbyHG9vliUk.

        At 1 year old and 14 days, the center T-bolt stripped out the threads on the motor. Talked to the manufacturer, they will do nothing, cannot even purchase a new motor. This is just junk now and cannot be repaired. Mixed roughly 100 bags during the 12 months and 2 weeks. At $300, it cost me $3/bag just to mix. This is after the first one I purchased had a motor seal problem and dumped all it's oil on my shed floor, that one HomeDepot replaced for me. Don't waste your money on this brand if you want a better value than that.

            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

              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.

                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.

                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.

                Great bargain, Great mixer
                I didn't know anything about this mixer when I bought it, but the online reviews really helped. I made washers from a water hose for the tub bolts and it doesn't leak. But the instructions are incorrect for the bracket that sets on the verticle pipe from the legs and that the handle bracket bolts to with the long bolt. The highest part of that bracket needs to be in front. This allows the tub to set farther back so that the cement in the back of the tub mixes. I have mixed 2 1/2-50 lb bags in one batch but I limit most of mine to 2-50 lb bags per batch and dump into a wheel barrow to get it to the job. The instructions say not to move the mixer while loaded and that is good advice. Use a wheel barrow. I have mixed 62 bags so far and it is working great. I will attach a pic of the proper orientation of the mounting bracket and a YouTube video of it in operation.

                Very dissapointed
                This was a kind of in a hurry purchase as I was in the middle of doing stucco work and my mixer died (motor). I will start with the GOOD: easy to assemble and transport around. Tools also provided and spare part. I thought from the get go it is going to be a great buy. Then I tried to use it. The BAD: The drum is too high in the normal-resting position so dumping a bag of concrete mix (in my case stucco -90 lbs bag, into the drum is difficult. I had to use shovel to empty 1/2 of it and then used 2ft ladder to dump the rest. In that resting/normal operation position if you turn the mixer, the mix inside just spins around with the drum. No mixing occurs. The mixing blades are far above the bottom of the drum so naturally nothing was happening. Since my project couldn't wait I found 20" of 2x10 and added 3 (4x12) beams and put it against the motor and the handles to tilt the position of the drum from about 45 deg to about 25 deg. At that point the mix slid to the side and the blades started mixing. In that position with the support under the handles the wheels need to be blocked from creeping forward. This did the deed and I was able to use the mixer. I do not know whether with 2 or 3 bags the mixer works better, but for do it yourself project and mixing one bag at the time = the mixer is useless. It is a shame, because it seems like such a good product. It made me wonder if the manufacturer even tests the mixer whether it works prior to sending it out to the market.

                don't hesitate to buy
                This is an awesome little mixer. Setup took about 30 minutes max. I did follow advise from other reviews and put hose washers on the barrel bolts that hold the blades. The mixer is super quiet and seems to be well built. It easily handles two 80lb bags. I dumped the mix directly into a wheelbarrow. Not sure how well this mixer would work dumping directly into a form though. The other mixer that's shorter might be better for that. I've run about 40 bags through it so far without a single glitch. A couple tips: 1) You do need to lift the handles up in order to get the blades fully engaged in mixing. I used a scrap 2X6 about 2ft long. Not a big deal. 2) Make sure you have some water in the barrel before dumping your mix to keep it from sticking. 3) elevate the back of the barrel as mentioned above before dumping mix into the barrel to make it easier on your back. 4) you might want to cover your arm dumping the mix into the barrel as it does get a bit messy. Enjoy!

                Mount it on a tractor bucket.
                I was very surprised as I put this mixer together at the high quality of all the components including bolts and clevis pin Works great. I needed to work on a grade, so I mounted the mixer on the tractor bucket by bolting a 1-1/2" x 24" black iron pipe on the side of the bucked with 2 1/2" bolts. Cement bags in the bucket, and it worked like a dream. Thanks for previous posts for the tip on putting washers on the mixer blade bolts. This is key

                  This mixer works like a champ!
                  Bought this mixer to use to build a rock and mortar pool/pond. It has exceeded our expectations and we have had zero problems with it. It easily handles the amounts of cement mix and mortar mix that we need for our project. It is very quiet and you are able to have a conversation right next to it without yelling. We plan on using it for many more projects in the future. It has been a pleasure to work with and we highly recommend this product!

                  This is a great mixer that is efficient and durable
                  I have been redoing my back yard since I buried my swimming pool. I planned for a lot of planters, a retaining wall, a vault for a Spa and a concrete patio. The patio is a little beyond my abilities to finish but so far I have mixed and poured 150 60# bags of ready mix concrete and it has been a breeze. The mixer went together in a snap. I used some rubber washers when installing the blades to prevent any leaking around the bolts and it works great. The mixer is easily moved around where I need it. The barrel position makes it easy to load and the tipping feature works very well for dumping into a wheelbarrow. I was also able to position the mixer on the edge of my spa vault and simply fill, mix and dump directly into the site without having to transfer to a wheelbarrow. Mixing 3-4 60# bags at a time has really allowed my project to move along quickly. I highly recommend this mixer.

                  great mixer for the price
                  couldn't ask for a better mixer for the money spent. I've worked with concrete at work for almost 25 years and just wanted to do some work at home at my own pace without having to get the big truck in the driveway. I read some reviews and used the hose gaskets on the mixing blade bolts for no leaks and always have plenty of water in it before adding any cement/concrete.

                  Very Impressed
                  Just bought this mixer. Finished assembly in about 15 mins...Was very impressed with the heavy duty construction. My wife had to assist me lifting the motor assemby up and onto the frame. Most of it goes together with cotter pins. The only 4 bolts were for the mixer blades. Recommend adding some RTB silicone around the bolt heads to seal and keep the nuts from loosening.

                  Super easy to assemble. Up and running in 20 minutes. Its first job was three days of mixing four pallets (yards) of ready mix. The last one I had lasted ten years and this one is a even better design. Well pleased.

                  I am a contractor and purchased this for a decking job where I had to put in a slab for a deck stair landing. No way to get a cement truck to the back of the house, so me and a helper had to do it by hand. I assembled it very easily in about 30 minutes. I had looked at some other brands and this got better reviews and was way easier to assemble. I assembled it by myself and I am a petite (but strong) woman. The thing that I noticed immediately is the awkward way of having to move it. Even with a helper, it was too awkward to try to wheel to the backyard. Even to move it a few feet one way or the other is a bit difficult. Kind of makes me wonder why there is even wheels on it. What I did was detach the barrel and motor using the pin and we carried it over separately to the job site. I mixed (over the course of a few hours), about 40 bags of 60 pound high strength cement. The cement consistency was very lacking and at times I had a little difficulty mixing 2 bags at a time. But this is ONLY because of the lousy cement mixture. The mixer itself performed excellent and I am sure I could have mixed more at one time if not for the high pebble content of the cement mix. For my situation, it helped if I tipped the mixer to a half pour position while it was mixing. I kept this mixer going almost nonstop for over 3 hours and I suspect it would keep on going. They even provided extra parts in the box for a wear item. I am extremely happy with this mixer and would recommend it. It cleaned up well too. I still have another small slab to pour and I intend to use it at my own house for cement work.
