Have you ever imagened how life was before the invention of a concrete mixer?. It is found that mixing of concrete materials with the help of machines is more efficient and it produces concrete of better quality in a short time. Thanks to columbus the ohio industrialist who discovered a concrete mixer then reffered to as apparatus for concrete work. A concrete mixer is a device or machinery that homogeneously combines/ mixes cement, aggregate such as sand, gravel, and water to form concrete. There are two main types of concrete mixers: In-trasit mixers and portable mixers. Most kenyan construction companies prefer using portable mixers because of their portability, purchase and mentainance cost. Most portable mixers will fit in the trunk of most cars while large capacity units can be towed easly on wheels or hoisted onto pickup trucks for longer distances. with their small size and easy portability it becomes easy to use them even on the most remote parts of kenya.
