Description

The Pro-Series 3.5 Cubic Foot Electric Cement Mixer is the ideal size for mixing concrete for small to medium size projects. You can use it to build a backyard BBQ pit, pour a concrete slab for a shed  or set fence posts. This general duty Cement Mixer handles drywall mud, plaster, stucco, mortar, concrete and more. I really like how flexible it is when i use it around my home, garden and farm.
The Electric Cement Mixer has a 180 lb dry mix capacity. The drum tips 360 degrees at a height that is perfect for dumping the mix into a wheelbarrow. It has a double insulated steel drum and the frame is rugged for construction and farm use. A 15 inch diameter drum opening is wide enough to make adding dry mix easy.

Besides the traditional use of cement, I even use it on the farm to mix cattle feed or treat seeds before planting.

This portable concrete mixer is easy to assemble, and I can maneuver it around easily, too!

Using a cement mixer on a job site requires proper setup to ensure safety. Here’s a step-by-step guide on how to use a cement mixer:

Set up the mixer: Choose a suitable location on the job site. Ensure it is on a stable and level surface. Follow the manufacturer’s instructions for assembling the mixer.

Prepare materials: Gather all the materials needed for your concrete mix, including cement, sand, gravel, and water.

Of course, before operating the cement mixer, take necessary safety precautions. Of course, I highly recommend you wear protective gear, such as safety goggles, gloves, and a dust mask.

Add materials: Start the mixer drum rotating before adding materials. Gradually pour the measured quantities of cement, sand, and gravel into the drum while it is rotating.

Add water: While the drum is rotating, slowly add water to the mixture. The amount of water needed will depend on the desired consistency of the concrete. Add water gradually to achieve the right mix, avoiding excessive water that can weaken the concrete.

Mix thoroughly: Allow the mixer to rotate for a sufficient amount of time to ensure the materials are thoroughly mixed.

Check consistency: After mixing, stop the mixer and inspect the consistency of the concrete. If necessary, make adjustments by adding small amounts of water or dry materials until the desired consistency is achieved. Aim for a mix that is workable but not overly wet or dry.

Pouring the concrete: Once the concrete mix is ready, stop the mixer and carefully tilt the drum to pour the concrete into a wheelbarrow, buckets, or directly into the desired location on the job site. Take care not to spill or waste the concrete during the pouring process.

Clean the mixer: After pouring the concrete, I recommend you clean the mixer thoroughly to prevent the cement from hardening inside the drum. I just use water and a stiff brush to remove any residue from the drum and other components.
