" It was easy to assemble and set up, tip mixer forward onto drum to fit tripod legs then lift back- only a one man job then.
Effortless to mix and easy to clean.
A very good product.

Pros: good price, little tricky to put together
" We decided to buy a concrete mixer, rather than hiring one. One bit was a little tricky to figure out putting it together, but then the missus put me right. A woman's logic was all I needed!! We concreted quite a large area, and it did the job. Could recommend. "

Pros: good quality belle product, easy to manouver
Cons: lack of comprehensive instructions for assembly
" Very pleased with this mixer have used it every day for a week, is easy to keep clean, especially when cleaned with stone in the drum as opposed to the old way of half bricks!!! Only down side is the lack of instructions for assembly, it is best to fit the drum with someone to help, only found out the correct method of assembly after asking in store a member of staff who had also learned the hard way!!!! Highly recommended "

Pros: very good value for money.
" Ordering the cement mixer online was so easy and quick, this was then delivered very quickly.
Mixer is great for all the DIY jobs that need doing when a home owner. My husband has rendered the outside of our house and says the mixer is very good value for money. Now all he has to do is build a wall, a shed and lay a patio as well as lay a floor in the garage. ( not much)???

Pros: mixes thoroughly, quiet and low speed action, easily portable & stable in use
" No more muscle straining hand mixing. Easy to set up, labour saving mixing, easy washed and easily moved to store. Less waste too - mix a bit less than needed in 5 mins, , lay it in 5 mins and mix a bit more to finish. "

Pros: easily dismantled, transportable in car
Cons: plastic drive gear on drum replace needs new drum, yellow colour attracted wasps, thickness of mixer blades/welding to drum, drum internal paint finish poor
" Simple to assemble and use well worth the purchase even for small jobs particularly when working alone. Excellent quick mixing.
Would have been useful to have holes in leg feet to enable anchoring down for added stability although not essential on flat firm ground. Good operating height and for unloading mix in to wheel barrow. Excellent service from Wickes for online ordering and delivery.

Pros: t bar handle, get any spare parts you need, smooth and quiet
Cons: paintwork in inaccessible areas poor
" I've used many mixers in my time, using an old version of this model over the past 8 years. This is great, I was sceptical considering the price, but its quiet, smooth because of the rim drive and the stand is now just the right height (the wheelbarrow always got chewed by the drum with the old model) and the tilt is great.. it all comes out leaving a clean drum without trying to lift it against the legs.
The T bar central handle is great allowing 1 handed control of the tilt, not like the wheelbarrow handles on the old.
Build quality is great although the paintwork is a little rough in the areas not accessible but thats the only gripe.

Pros: easy for one man to lift and handle, the price is right
Cons: handle is a bit flimsy
" Bought one for my brother,and was so impressed I bought another for myself. They are light and easy to move around and can handle full loads of concrete with ease. Did some footings on a garage and porch extension and poured about 12 tons of concrete in total ...did it no probs. "
