Portable Cement Mixer
Portable Cement Mixer is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 15.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Makes mixing so much easier I bought this about a month ago and have mixed a total of around 50 bags in it. It can EASILY mix two 60 pound bags of concrete at a time. However, I only tried that twice because it's too much concrete for me to finish at one time for the job I was doing. Having this mixer sure beats mixing by hand. Saves your back and time. I noticed that it does need rinsed out after every two to three mixes though. Maybe this is true about all mixers...not sure. This is my first mixer. But overall I love it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great help. My wife and I assembled the mixer with no issues, rolled it out to the back yard, mixed and poured ten 80 lb bags into a footer. The next morning we did twelve more bags. Neither of us have worked with concrete or a mixer before but thanks to the mixer it went great. Easy to assemble, very easy to move,easy to use and easy clean up. Going to pour a small patio next.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this thing I bought this to do some driveway repair and pour a small shed floor. The driveway repair was made easier being able to wheel the concrete over the hole and pour it directly in. I found it easy to set up and use and clean. The motor and gearbox seem very strong and I was able to do 2 80Lbs bags at a time with no apparent strain on the machine. It is rated for 240lbs so 3 would probably work.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from One Step Back For years I've used the Home Depot predecessor to this model. Ryobi has reengineered the old model and a real sore spot with me is that after a couple pallets of Sakrete concrete mix the drum will not unscrew from the motor. For my needs this is a serious downgrade from the previous model.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Its a workhorse So far I have put about 88 80# bags of cement through it, 3 bags at a time, it keeps on chugging. The powder coat finish makes it easy to clean, yet its durable and does not end up in the cement.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from handy! If you're realistic about your expectations, this mixer is very handy. You can't really do a big pour like a driveway, but small pads, floor leveling mix, or sidewalks are right up the mixer's alley. It assembles quickly with basicnhand tools and can be taken down for transportation rather easily. One feature that is not heavily advertised is the dump feature. I thought, at first, that it was to be tipped by the wheels. That is not the case. It actually has a release that allows it to tip on the hinge. With a little care and caution, it works well. The wheels make it handy for moving short distances, but don't try to move it if it is loaded. Pay attention to the instructions. They advise you to make a drip loop in the electrical cord, and that is important. It is a wet job after all. All in all I love this machine. ZERO regrets for buying.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Much better than a shovel and a wheelbarrow Saves some back breaking effort. Worked great. Only downfall was some concrete gets stuck to the sides and you have to dig it out periodically.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Constructed Well, Good Performance This is a well thought out piece of equipment. Perfect for small concrete jobs. I recommend not mixing more than (2) 80# bags at a time. it will perform very well for you. The reason why I even thought to purchase a Ryobi tool - my neighbor loaned me his portable table 10" saw with a stand. The table saw was rock solid
