Love this tool. We just cut the bottom off another 5 gallon bucket to keep the excess mud from flying out while mixing. Now we can mix larger bucket-fulls. We have had it for about 3 years- super solid, well built. Purchasing another because it went missing! Can't live without it now. It is our go-to for shower pans. My mortar box is rusty.
Bucket Mortar Mixer
Tile setters and stone masons, Fire your hoe and retire your mix box. Bucket Mortar Mixer mixes faster and with much less effort than a mix box or wheelbarrow and hoe. Cost including a drill is less than a mix box and hoe. Easier clean up, Less bulk. In the past it has been difficult to mix dry pack mortar in a bucket.
- Mixes all types of mortar and concrete in a 5 gals bucket
- Mixes 4 gals of dry pack mortar (deck mud, floor mortar, sand mix) in as little as 30 seconds mixing time!
- Auger action moves material from bottom to top and handle allows a stirring motion of the auger
- Foam covered steel handle with oil impregnated bronze bearings for maintenance free operation
- 1/2" chuck drill motor required (keyed type recommended)
- Zinc plated 30" long by 1/2" shaft
- Mixing blade diameter 3"

I am glad I purchased this mixer, This works Great, Just as stated.
If you have to mix deck mud or concrete this will save you!! Not only does it mix a full bag of concrete in about 45 seconds but it saves your back and your knees. If mixing a full bag you'll want to use a bigger bucket. I use 7 gallon bucket that commercial pool companies get their chemicals in. Works great! Otherwise take a 5 gal and cut the top half off, stick that on top of a full size 5 gal and it will work.
You won't be disappointed! It used to take my helper 10+ min to mix a bag for a shower pan. With this, it takes 2 min. Cut my installation time in 1/2.
The best mixer we have ever using. It will mix anything .
what a beast. dont wait another day.
Great tool for dry pack and concrete. Last 2 have been bent a little. Main shaft wobble is annoying but still a must have tool.
Perfect for mixing fat mud/deck mud! Put your mud box on the shelf! I prefer this even over a concrete mixer.
Works much better than the paddle I had been using. Quicker and less mess... Almost ready to use for dry pack for my shower floor, the real reason I purchased it.
Bucket morter mixer, WOW, what a tool! I used it to mix all the countertop morter, dry pack and wall mud, a time saver.. I premeasured all 5 gallon buckets (10) and went to work by my self. I did'nt need additional help. This really saved me time. What a machine!!
Works fantastic! I even have a large cement mixer and use this instead.
I use this to mix all my pre-mixed mortar, you can mix half an 80# bag in about 30 seconds!
Awesome tool, Had to get a screw thread welded to the top to fit my Rubi mixer but once done worked well. Cost me a whole lot more in freight than it cost but well worth it. It will pay for itself in a couple of jobs. Arrived in NZ in less than a week. Great
Works exactly as they say it does
This Mixer does everything they say it does. Every tile setter should have one. I've been setting Tile for 35 years its great
I used this product to mix up chinking for a log lean-to. It worked very well to mix the materials both wet and dry, save me a mountain of time. High quality materials with a great design. Recommended!
Needed to mix 3 eighty pound bags of concrete so I tried this mixer that I bought for showers. Mixed a five gallon bucket full of concrete mix in half a minute, about 60lbs worth!! Had the patch job done in fifteen minutes including cleanup.
Very good , easy to work , durable
If I had this tool as a teen, mixing mortar for my father who was a mason, would have been a godsend. Very impressed.
This is perfect for mixing buckets of cement or lime mortar and makes the process a whole lot quicker and easier than trying to mix by hand, mixes very thoroughly. Well made and solid construction seems like this will last for a long time. A great purchase that I am very happy with.
used a little but seems to work as shown take the w out of work thanks
Used this to mix up several buckets of dry pack for a shower bed. Allowed me to use very little water and still get excellent uniformity. One of the best tools I've ever bought.
I have used it for concrete mix and pan mud. IT WORKS GREAT!!! I use mainly 50lb bags of premixed mud and it does a great job mixing. Very easy and a smooth mix. Very little clumping.I think a 6 gallon bucket would make this almost mess free.
Makes mixing dry pack a breeeze..No more wheelborrow and shovel just a five gallon bucket and drill. You can mix 65lbs. of C-cure in bucket at a time only takes 30 sec. to spin... Seems to use less water than mixing with hoe..not sure why? Great tool..saves your back.
I've owned a tile company for 26 years now. That is a lot of shower pans that needed sand & cement mixed.
Of course for mud floors I have a gas powered barrel type mixer, but for the shower floors they were all mixed by hand, in a wheelbarrow...etc.
While this isn't exactly cheap, it's not really expensive either.
I am a skeptic with all products that seem too good to be true, especially when I see a guy mixing concrete in a few seconds.
Well it's true! This little guy is the real deal and is worth every single penny!
The first mix (in a 5 gallon bucket) I followed the video and resisted the urge to put water in first, as I do with Thinset and Grout.
It didn't mix in two seconds but a minute or two later it was ready. Still much faster and easier than mixing by hand.
Now the second time, I put the water in first with the drill and then filled the bucket with dry cement. This time it honestly mixed a perfect mix in seconds!
My helper and I were just looking in disbelief at how fast and easy it was.
I have two half inch spade handle drills. A Milwaukee and a Makita. Both spin at 600 RPM. Neither drill even broke a sweat while mixing. So don't worry about over-working the drill.
This mortar mixer is a god send! While more & more alternative methods for shower floors are coming out. If you still feel a mud floor is the strongest method, then don't hesitate. Buy this mixer today!
What took two hours to install a perfect shower floor by myself, now takes an hour.
Best money I've spent on a tool in a long while.
