Summary: After 15 years I am.finally going to.replace my current dewalt mixer with this one. Easily I have mixed 15000 plus buckets of thinset with this drill. I never once did any maintenance to it, all I do is abuse it.
Summary: This drill was bought to replace a drill stolen by dirtbags. I love this drill. It mixes stiff drywall mud easily. I haven't used it for anything else but I can tell from experience that it has plenty of power for most tasks. It's a very good deal for the price.
Summary: We are making slip for our straw bale house, needed something that would mix well and not cost a fortune. It may not last for years but the price wae great and it is very solid. I like the variable speeds, although that may make it less durable.
Summary: I ordered this drill thinking it would last at least a job mixing mud. Boy was I wrong, this thing works great. Never heated up nor bogged down. As an amature I do not use this much and I thought that it was going to be overkill.
Summary: Bought this to replace two name brands I'd burnt out. One of the jobs for this drill is mixing 40 lb. batches of dry wall mud. Due to the low RPM, its easy on operator, drill, and you don't get mud all over.
