I'm looking to buy a Paddle Mixer suitable for mixing 'Mapei Renovation screed 3240 25Kg bags.
I mixed one bag over the weekend with a paddle fixed to my SDS drill which started to burn out!!

I have a budget of around £100 - 150 any recommendation would be appreciated?
Cheers!

Hi Hoppy
:welcomeuhm:
Just out of interest what was the make and model of the tool that burned out?
A DIY tool could often cope with a 25K bag when mixed in batches but not the whole bag at one time
or it may get through a bag or two before failing.
How many bags do you need to mix?

I have a Metabo SDS that did two 25kg bags of brick mortar yesterday...
Probably has done at least a 100 of these and is still on the original carbons.

With a paddle, I do start with water, then add the corresponding mortar. The exact opposite of mixing by spade.

(But it did cost about 3x your budget...)

My sds was a Black and Decker 900W. Its still ok, I stopped using it just in case.
I ended up Hiring a paddle mixer in the end, I had 28No. 25kg bags to mix.
Thanks for the replies, much appreciated!
