Nationwide Cement Mixer Hire
Ideal for both DIY and professional applications, mixing a full wheelbarrow load of concrete or mortar.
Mixing concrete or cement with a mixer is much easier and quicker then conventional methods allowing larger quantities to be produced in a relatively short time. Our cement mixers are built for durability and are the number one choice nationwide. The mixers have full thermal overload protection as well as a NVR (no-volt-return) safety power switch. Used with its stand these highly portable, lightweight and quality machines allow barrow height mixing and tipping.

Concrete And Mortar Mixes
There are several different mixes that can be employed. The proportions of each individual element added are dependent on the project. A strong concrete mix is one with a higher percentage of cement, whilst a weaker mix uses less.
General Purpose Concrete = 1:2:3 mix. Perfect for most uses except foundations and exposed paving. It is composed of one part cement, two parts sand and three parts coarse aggregate (if using a combined aggregate, this mix would be 1:4, one part cement to four parts combined aggregate).
Foundation Concrete = 1:2 ½:3 ½ mix. Standard for wall foundations or bases and laying paving slabs, etc. One part cement, two and a half sand and three and a half coarse aggregate (if using a combined aggregate, this mix would be 1:5).
Paving Concrete = 1:1 ½:2 ½ mix. Ideal for exposed paving such as driveways and garage floors. One part cement, one and a half parts sand and two and a half parts coarse aggregate (combined aggregate would need a mix of 1:3 ½).
Standard Mortar = 1:5 mix. For internal or sheltered brick laying. Mix one part cement to five parts soft sand. Add a small amount of lime or one part plasticizer to increase the workability (this type of mix is perfect for an internal block partition wall).
Strong Mortar = 1:4 mix. Used for exposed brickwork. Mix one part cement to four parts soft sand, add a small amount of lime or plasticizer to increase the workability.
