"I was getting very tired and weary trying to mix Hard Wall plaster to fill deep channels after rewiring when I came across this. Read the reviews, which were mixed and decided to go ahead and see how it goes. I used the paddle to mix 6 bags of plaster, so far, and it performed brilliantly. The welds have held!
I used it with a Titan SDS hammer drill (from Screwfix) set on medium speed and it did the job great. Highly recommended."
"Even for small jobs, this makes mixing so much easier. This is a sturdy mixer but it easily fits in my old 3/8 drill chuck. I use this old drill as if cement and plaster dust damage the bearings etc, it won't matter."
"These are cheap and efficient. Break easily if abused but if you can get a house out of one then thats cheap. Only good for plaster, bonding coat and bonding comp, keep the drill speed low (as mixing instructions usually at around 300 rpm). Follow good cleaning practices and its a good buy"
"I decided to try these paddles having got my more expensive paddles nicked all the time. I wasnt at first sure because of the price but that changed when i started to use them. They are capable of mixing plaster very well although i found when mixing heavier products like cement the welds on the paddle can brake loose and thats why i give 4 stars for performance and reliability."
"Had to return two of these mixers after the spot weld failed at a couple of points almost immediately. I know it's cheap but would expect it to last longer than a few stirs! Still, when it works its well worth the money, even for small jobs."
"Bought it while on offer - great price. Used it to mix floor tile grout - much quicker than mixing by hand. Wish I had bought it earlier. Its a bit fiddly to clean but worth it for all the hard work it saves by hand mixing."
"One of the blades sheared off after putting this through its paces for a fortnight. Admittedly I had used it lots by then, but I was less than impressed when the sheared blade sprayed fresh plaster 'round the room...."
