Concrete Mixer FXA 130L

Another addition to my home remodeling tools collection has arrived (been bought at local DIY store) - concrete mixer FXA 130L - with help of what I'm planing to concrete fundament for our rural house. 

Concrete mixer is a must have tool for any self home builder and I would say it should be featured at any rural house. Concrete mixer is the second useful tool after a trimmer purchase this year.

Huge was my joy after this purchase, now was time to set it up - what seemed an easy task to handle turned out to be a rocket science.

It took me about 3 hours, countless phone calls to the DIY store, as I just didn't get any idea how to install it correctly, even after reading manual. After three hours and much negative vocabulary I finally did it.

Now it was time to put it on first test - few days ago I already ordered a load of gravel, have been bought some sacks of cement, for the test I decided to finish foundation works for garden pizza oven (a side project, besides complete home rebuilding stuff, you know)

It was matter of one mixing to finish foundation works for garden oven.

Now, it's time to leave cement to solidify and build over it an awesome garden pizza oven.

The Bottom Line: 

I just love this concrete mixer. Bought for about EUR 180. I hope it will serve me for coming years.
