Hi guys, got a job in couple of months where I'll need to mix 60sqm of slc on my own.
Was thinking of getting a mixing trolley system like this, could then strap my rubi mixer in and let it rip


What do you guys use as I know my back wont be up to it in rubber buckets

LOL, not lazy just know my back hurts like hell after only a 6 bags of slc so 35 bags will cause me days off and physio also. Plus who doesn't love a new tool 😁
If serious though I may take you up on offer though on day rate 👍

Nice idea that, maybe I could take it as a preventative before starting lol

The reason why your back hurts is because of the distance you are bending over mixing......... either get a longer paddle or put the mixing bucket on a platform. Simples.

I am a midget so this does not affect me.

Get some flat bottom bins for 5 bag mixes, some £10 dollies, spiked shoes and a speedskim on a pole for moving large quantities when poured.

I'm not a midget, 6'1 and slim. I'm not built for moving heavy lifting lol a longer paddle may help though your right.

Got mine from a local hardware store. Have a search online but make sure they don't have a ridge round the bottom like a lot do so it all gets mixed. Have all your water measured out ready and all the bags you're definitely going to use open . M8x on the dollies.

Maybe using bottle and bag slc which makes it easier
