Power mixer and Thinset spreader

I've been thinking about getting a Raimondi Jobsite Power mixer for Thinset and a spreading tool like a Columbo or Super Spreader. Has anyone used these and if so, are they worth the money?

Thx

I have owned and used simliar equipment. Worth it if you have a good size crew and wide open spaces. Really have to have the right set-up to make it worthwhile. Got more use out of the power grouter and sponge machine, especially on epoxy.

I have a Raimondi Berta sponge omatic old as she is I love it.
Needs at least 500 sf or more of wide open area.
The raimondi floor machine with grout head, I only use for large area's of marble or polished porcelains. It requires a squeegee man and the sponge o matic.
I love the skippers and the sponge o matic for epoxy, would do epoxy without lt.
Peace

That was where we made the money too, on epoxy.
