When it comes to mixing concrete for your small construction or landscaping projects, you may wonder whether it’s better to use a concrete mixer or a wheelbarrow. Each method has its advantages and drawbacks, but the convenience and efficiency of a mobile concrete mixer such as our MudMixer® significantly outweigh manual mixing with a wheelbarrow.

Manual Mixing with a Wheelbarrow

Mixing small batches of concrete manually in a wheelbarrow is a traditional method favored for its simplicity and cost-effectiveness. However, it comes with its fair share of challenges. While small batches up to 80 pounds can be managed, larger batches become physically demanding and may compromise consistency.

To mix concrete with a wheelbarrow, you’ll need to add dry ingredients first, blend them thoroughly, and gradually incorporate water while mixing with a mortar hoe or flat shovel. This process requires precision and strength, and the process can be messy, resulting in extra cleanup.

The MudMixer® Advantage

Enter the MudMixer® – a mobile concrete mixer designed to streamline the mixing process for small construction projects. Unlike manual mixing, the MudMixer® offers a hassle-free operation that ensures consistent and precise results every time.

Operating the MudMixer® is a breeze. Simply add your dry mix into the hopper, adjust the water flow, and let the mixer do the rest. The two-phase infusion system efficiently combines dry material and water to create the perfect mixture for your project.

With no need for a wheelbarrow, you can roll the MudMixer® directly to your pour area. It eliminates the extra work of mixing material in separate batches, allowing for continuous mixing and dispensing into your forms. Simply continue adding bags of dry mix material into the hopper and let the MudMixer® do the work for you.

I have a passion to help people. When a friend of mine, Oscar Scott, showed me his idea for a continuous portable concrete mixer, I thought it would be a great tool that saves time, energy, and money. The MudMixer was launched with that goal in mind. MudMixer manufactures and distributes a continuous portable concrete mixer. It can be used with premixed concrete bags, such as Quikrete and Sakrete. It’s a great tool for contractors and rental companies.
