Streamline Your Mixing Practices
The Steele Mixer design is simple. It doesn’t require any more power than what your elbow grease provides.
At under 40 lbs, the Steele Mixer is easy to move around the jobsite (although we wonder if throwing a couple of wheels wouldn’t improve mobility even more…kind of seems like a missed upgrade opportunity).
Operating the Steele Mixer is really simple. After adding your water, you’ll dump your concrete into the bucket. You’ll spend the next 40 seconds using the wooden handles to slosh it all back and forth, letting the patented bucket design do the heavy mixing work.
When you’ve finished mixing, you can lean it to one side and lock it in place for easy access to your concrete. The Steele Mixer was designed for use with a flat shovel.
Or, if you’d rather dump it all at once (and if you’ve got an extra set of hands), you can lift the bucket off the stand via the top handles.
When you’ve finished the job, you simply spray down the inside of the bucket and dump the water. Since the mechanics of this machine remain very simple, and because it forgoes gas or electricity for simple muscle power, maintenance is a non-issue.
The Steele Mixer makes an ideal concrete mixer for the homeowner taking on a DIY project. With its simple and lightweight design, we can also see the benefit for Pros. In any case, it certainly beats trying to mix concrete in a wheelbarrow. It only mixes a single 60-pound bag of concrete at a time, so take that into account. Even so, at 40 seconds a bag, it seems like you could really get into a rhythm for smaller jobs not requiring a larger, powered mixer.
It’s also made in the good ol’ USA using locally sourced components. You can find it by heading to the Steele Mixer website here. It retails for $285.
