Concrete & Mortar Mixers

If you're looking for a cement mixer rental or a mortar mixer rental for a small to mid-sized mixing job, look no further. Sure, you can mix cement or mortar the old-fashioned way with a drill motor and a bucket, but if you're looking to save time and money - a portable cement or mortar mixer is your best bet. We rent, sell, and service portable mixers from reputable manufacturers.

Cement and mortar mixers are similar in that they both quickly and thoroughly mix but their functionality is quite different. Cement (concrete) mixers have a drum that spins - picture the cement truck you see while driving down the road. The spinning action of the drum is what mixes the cement. Since the cement is being mixed on-site and not delivered via truck, there aren't any concerns about premature settling. Mortar mixers on the other hand have a fixed drum that does not spin. Within the drum there are paddles or arms that rotate in a circular fashion, mixing the materials. A mortar mixer is more of a heavy-duty mixer intended for stiffer, more abrasive mixes like mortar, stucco, thin set, plaster, epoxy, terrazzo, drywall mud, paint, or grout. You should NEVER use a mortar mixer to mix cement as the small gravel stones will get trapped between the paddles and the drum ruining the paddles or destroying the belts.
