The new PortoMix from STOW Construction Equipment is billed as the ultimate concrete mixer for homeowners, contractors and do-it-yourselfers.
The unit’s sturdy polyethylene drum mixes up to 3 cubic feet of material and comes with a strong steel frame. It’s powered by a reliable 3/4-horsepower, 115- single-phase Baldor electric motor that can use standard household power. Measuring 34 by 23 1/2 by 48 1/2 inches, it is small enough to fit into the trunk of a car. It is fitted with replaceable blades bolted to the drum, while its stand permits 360-degree rotation. Other standard features on the 138-pound mixer include a dustproofed on-off switch, an improved gearbox for reduced friction operation, and pneumatic wheels for greater mobility. The PortoMix can even be used as a wheelbarrow to transport concrete, debris and other materials.

With capacities of 2 cubic feet, Little Champ mixers from Stone Construction Equipment Inc. are ideal for small mixing jobs.
Modular, compact and sturdy in design, the Little Champ comes in three configurations to satisfy the needs of any small contractor.

The 25CMPC combines features of the other two mixers for a model that offers the transportation convenience of the wheelbarrow version and the charging and discharging capability of the pedestal model. The heaviest of the three, it weighs only 148 pounds.

The easy-tilt feature of the Hippo Mixer from HoverTrowel Inc. helps contractors transport and pour materials with ease. What’s more, its motor makes it a natural for mixing self-leveling materials.
With a mixing capacity of roughly 18 gallons, the Hippo is powered by a high-torque, 16-amp, two-speed motor. The Hippo’s drum shape and helical mixing paddle with shear bars create a vortex to provide sufficient lifting and shearing action when mixing these batch sizes. A paddle with comparatively large diameter increases periphery speed, reducing the flash curing that comes with the increased temperatures created by high rpm speeds.
