    Default PTO Cement Mixer--Anyone familiar with this one?

    -cement_mixer1-jpg
    Looking at this mixer on a local classified ad but owner doesn't know how the dumping mechanism works. I'm needing one and this one seems attractive at asking price of $375. Any help is appreciated.

    I bought a small wheel barrow mixer from Home Depot a couple of years ago for about the same money, $350 to $450 IIRC. I prefer this to the 3PH model as it is easier to get into tight spaces and is perfect for dumping into postholes. I have used it quite abit with no problems so far. When I am installing lots of posts I use my backhoe with pallet of concrete on the front and hyd auger on the hoe, followed by a small cart with water buckets and Honda 2000 genset for the mixer. This reduces the amount of labor dramatically for me. Most jobs around the house or construction sites a plug in mixer is way less trouble to use.

    Really enjoyed looking at your guitars on the site the other day, wish I still had my old NY Epiphone.

    It uses a hydraulic ram in place of the normal top link. The link extends pivoting the mixer over the lower mount points. Without the ram it seems over priced to me.

    Thanks for the comment on the archtops. I can build 'em but can't play 'em.

    Personally I would look at independent mixers...there are some very nice mixers with poly drums (for the same or less money) that won't tie up your tractor...

    take a look at the 'Black Lynx' brand...

    That looks like it made to tilt as you raise and lower the 3-point - no hydraulics.

    That's what the owner thought but it belonged to his deceased Dad and hadn't been used for several years. I probably need to go take a look at it and make an offer as it's only about 75 miles.

    I keep thinking there should be a way to mix concrete in the loader bucket by raising, lowering, and tilting the bucket.
