I can’t see it mate. The cheap ones either slow down after a while or burn out. Can it mix up 3/4 bags of stick at a time?
Why would I mix up that much , on me own , 1 bag mix , just empty on board , water in , dust in 10 min before I need it , easier to mix as well

Dryliner I worked with 30 years ago used a 2by1 he was on pricework he would mix 2 buckets a time. And I remember a spread saying he had job skimming ceilings £2 a metre. We were getting that for screeding.

Don’t mix any more than 2 bags now as on my own and my arms,shoulders,knees and toes are aching (I’m sure there’s a song in there ) so a cheap mixer should do me thinks.
