For that much mud Kevin I'd spring for 2 BMMs, if it is in the budget

The other day I left my drill on another project and the only thing I had was my Dewalt 20v drill with a weenie 1.5 amp battery- but that's what I used to mix 5 buckets.

I just shows you how little drag there is with the bucket mortar mixer. People think that because it's mixed dry that it must burn up a drill. This just isn't the case.

The BMM has become one of our best selling mixers. First time I saw it, I thought the price was a bit out there. As it turns out, I think it would sell at double price based on the performance. We only have a few left right now, so get em while they're hot!!

Question

The 9630 Bucket Mortar Mixer looks amazing! Does anyone know If I can buy one in Toronto, Canada? Or do I have to order it online? I am also taking a trip to the U.S. in a couple weeks. Is there anywhere that I can buy it in Buffalo or Pennsylvania?

Thanks

Good idea Brian

Somewhat carefully typed on teensy cell phone keys.

Mine's supposed to be here Tuesday....After reading all the hype I had to have one....We typically run a tiller on the bigger jobs but this thing looks awesome....Could keep a guy or two just steady at it bringing fresh mud nonstop once your ahead of the game. ....Cant' wait to try it.

I dont remember the size our measuring cup, maybe a pint. We would place one container of water on the bottom of each 5 gal bucket. Then we would fill all the buckets with deck mud and place two more containers of water on top to percolate. Every batch came out identical.

You'll love it. We've used ours for jobs up to 100sq or more when we don't want to wrestle the big mixer. I've found that it seems to work a little better if you put 1/2 the water in then the mud then the other 1/2 of the water. Also after the initial mix, let the mud sit and hydrate for a minute, then give it another quick spin again, it will help eliminate any dry stuff in the bottom of the bucket.

I dump 1/3 of my sand into the bucket, add the cement, add 2/3 sand. mix dry, then leave a hole in the middle of the sand / cement mix and then add water as needed.
