Build a Electric Cement Mixer Plans
These plans are for a small cement mixer.
A few spare hours spent building
this mixer will save you
many hours with a mixing hoe
when you tackle that new driveway
or barbecue. Made from a 10 gallon barrel and a 1/3 hp electric motor, this little cement mixer is the perfect size for small jobs around the home and ranch.
Though its capacity is small, the
mixer is no bottleneck on the job.
I get through more bags of cement
in less time than I did with a rented
quarter-bag job. The 10-gal. drum
is a type commonly used for soda fountain
syrups, paint and bakers'
supplies. Mine is 15" in diameter
and stands 18" high.
handlebars permit you to
roll it like a hand truck, and easily
get through a basement doorway.
The front legs of the frame can
stand in a shallow form when you
pour, eliminating the need for a
chute or wheelbarrow.
A light welder,
electric drill and hacksaw are the
tools you'll need. Materials can
come from a plumber's scrap pile-
3/8'' and ½" pipe, and a few short
pieces of ½" rod. The mixing blades
are bent from 16-gauge sheet steel
and bolted to the inside of the
drum at a slight angle.
