Received my Ryobi Concrete Mixer. I guess buying in store when possible would be a better option but ordered online to have it delivered my local store since home shipping was not available for some reason. I would recommend you open the box to check the condition of the item before leaving the store. Review keeps being rejected for telling the truth about selling junk items, have to keep rewriting the review to their standards to make themselves look good.

Opened the box to see a lot of rusted components
I was pretty disappointed to open up the box and see nearly every unpainted part had significant rust on them. All the screws and bucket pivot pin were rusted, The mixing bucket, and some other painted parts, had a rust residue, which wiped off easily. The mixing bucket had a noticeable dent in it, which must have happened from the factory, as the box/packaging seemed intact. Only started the mixer to test operation. It runs. Won't know the true quality until I load it up with ready mix and water. I'll only update if things aren't satisfactory. The rust is concerning, though. Poor quality with that alone.

Great Mixer
It holds 2 to 3 bags of concrete mix easily and mixes it fast and well. 2 Bags in around 5 minutes. Mixer is quiet. Did a review on it if it helps. https://youtu.be/r5HvbbCGvQY

RYOBI portable cement mixer
Direct drive from a gear box attached to a well built motor. Drum is one piece made of thick powder coated steel. So far have run over 50 - 30 kg bags of redimix in 2 bag batches with no issues. I highly recommend this mixer! The box and the on the mixer it clearly states 0.5 hp 5.3amp motor. It is not 10 amp. It does slow down if more than 2 bags are mixed. The swivel and tilt mechanism is awesome! Two small issues; the base is unstable so I attached a long 2x6 which improved stability, one of the large washers was too small inside diameter so I had t drill out to use. Other than that it would have been a 5 star. I hope it lasts, awesome mixer!

Great DIY Mixer
First off I probably would not have purchased this if it was not on sale. But wow what a well made mixer. I watched so many reviews before finally using it today to pour a 4x4 pad that was too small for any contractor to do (they won't do small jobs because they are in such demand. Overall, it makes the job mixing and pouring concrete manageable for one person. Pro: Excellent Price/value RYOBI reputation ease of assembly Ease of Use Ease of clean up Cons: Wish it had better wheels but that is just me being nitpicky.

The instructions to put the mixer together are easy to follow and it took less than one hour from unboxing to fully assemble. I used the concrete mixer to pour a small slab for a storage shed and the mixer worked flawlessly. The mixer mixed 102 bags of 60 lbs concrete for the job. It can handle 3 bags at a time but I only mixed 2 bags for easier handling. It runs very quiet and the motor has plenty of power. I recommend this mixer.

It arrived scratched up and the drum opening is caved in and not symmetrical. Very poor handling, especially with a $50 shipping charge!

Great mixer, great price!
Used it to pour eight footers for a deck. It took about 3 hours to dig each hole 12" wide and 42" deep. Each hole took about seven 60lb bags. You can mix 4 bags at a time. For the price, I don't think there could be a better mixer. I found this on sale on SlickDeals. It's a little tricky to put together, but not bad (an extra set of hands would help). It cleans up great and will come in handy.
