Portable Concrete Mixer - 4 cu. ft. Drum - 115 L - $179.00

Deal Link:
Price:
179.00
Savings:
$120
Expiry:
April 24, 2019
Retailer:
Rona.ca
No reviews on Rona.ca, but looks eerily similar to the YARDMAX YM0115 4 cu ft unit, that is very well rated.

Always take out 33% of the max capacity and you will do just fine. Good results reported with (2) 80lbs bags max.

If you are going to use it for more than 3 days, AND you have space to store it, worth it to buy. Rental is 59$ a day. You could just tarp it (motor is washdown rated), but personally I'd feel better if it was in an enclosed space, at least under a roof.

Save the tax all week-end, but does not apply here (sale item) :(

Thanks OP!
Based on other sites the $299 regular price is normal, so this is a good deal.
I'm in for one.
If it goes through, I'll have to figure out what to do with it and justify why I need it.

Oh that ship has sailed.

Any deals on cement? I'm thinking concrete sculptures - very abstract- are in my future.

looks almost the same
Aside from the embossed "Yardmax" on the drum and the missing touch up paint! in the box, it is really close. I would wager it is made in the same factory.


PS I am assuming the Rona.ca version does not provide touch up paint...TBC.
PPS $800 power wheel barrow to go with your $200 mixer...lol

Should be fine. There is a guy who poured his house foundation with the Yardmax. (although I would not recommend that for 98% of cases). Many reports running 100+ 80# bags through with no issues.

Be advised that unless you have serious site access issues, from a pure money aspect there is a tipping point where getting readimix delivered is cheaper ( and easier). When I did my 2 pads (8*12*6" and 4 *8*4" ), price was very close, so I decided to get it delivered.

Excellent points and summary.

Would love to see that house foundation after a year or two....I mean, it would take you probably a 24 hour day unless you stopped in sawcut sections wouldn't it?

Princess Auto sells a 5cu model for $199 quite often with last time six weeks ago. While it's $20 more than this it does allow 3.5cu ft for mixing which is 0.5 more than Rona model. There is also parts catalog available which may be worth the extra investment. The only thing is this weekend it's tax free at Rona so you could be looking at about $50 more to go with princess auto model when it's $199+tax.

Providing the Rona unit is the same as the YardMax YM0115, which it seems to be, I'd get the this unit since it's motor has twice the power of the Princess Auto one; 2/3hp vs 1/3hp.
