Small cement mixers


Anyone have any experience with small cement mixers in the the $400 range? Are there some brands better than others? I have a project where I will be dropping 6 cu/ft into a hole at any one time so I need something better than a wheel barrow. I have a total of 15 holes. I can take my time doing the overall project but I just don't want to get cold joints when I am actually pouring.

Been through a couple. The Husky one from Home Depot outlasted the Big Red from Lowes. Either one will break if they are overloaded 2 90# sacks is to much. The big red would always vibrate bolts loose and I would not buy another after using my Husky. Both were same price.

Thanks for the input. With what I paid for this new one, I'd better limit it to one 60lb bag at a time if I want it to last the length of the project.
