I have used it for concrete shed pads and retaining walls. The capacity is large enough to mix more concrete than the average home owner can use at one time. As noted by another viewer, the assembly instructions are poor in that there is no way to determine whether parts are missing from the package. This is because much of the machine is preassembled and identification of the supplied parts is difficult. Assembly is almost intuitive if you ignore the part verification stage and just put the pieces in the box together. Not being able to start or stop the machine while it is loaded is annoying; however, this may be characteristic of small electric mixers.

I purchased this mixer with a friend of mine for use on a couple of upcoming projects. We are currently constructing a 3 bay 20 X 36 Pole Barn with a 10 X 8 foot attached tool shed. This mixer has already paid for itself just pouring the concrete around the poles. It handles an 80 lb bag of concrete with ease and is surprisingly easy to maneuver with a full load. The plastic drum cleans easily and the no flat tires are the only way to go. I mixed and poured 30 bags in just over 2 1/2 hours even with having to maneuver around all my support braces for the poles.

As a life long do it your self mom, never had a handy husband, I have always encouraged my sons you can if you try. Now they are grown and have both become home owners, and I purchased this product for them for their Birthday's as they are 4 years apart and were both born over Memorial Day Weekend, May 23, and 24th. One has used it to pour an under layment for his home that does
not have a basement, but only a crawl space, and the other has used it to make
his own landscape retaining wall bricks. All tricks learned from mom, who last summer built a patio out of reclaimed pavers and 12x12 multi colored slate tiles, aquired at an incredibly reduced rate. Not only that ,I won the money for the slate and mortar by selling a large quantity of service warranties for the local home improvement company (store) that I worked at part time. Sort of exceptional service awards given to employee instead of money. We receive store credits and I buy clearance items. I do not have a photo of My sons projects, however I do have a photo of the patio.

PCM350 Portable Cement Mixer

I have used this mixer on over 300 bags of mortar and cement building a block wall and patio floor. I should have bought one years ago. It works great. Just the right height to use as a wheelborrow to pour the cement. Mixes in less than 5 minutes. Great for do it yourself projects. I would buy another like this if it ever wears out. The poly drum is easy to clean and the mixer is light weight enough to load into a truck by one person. It sure makes the job easier!
