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
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.
