Polyethylene mixer drum

A polyethylene drum, easy to transport and simple to clean, joins the UltraMix mortar mixer line. Available in 6- or 8-cu.-ft. sizes, it is made from a high-density, ½-in.-thick, polyethylene resin, which provides a durable solution for mixing applications.

The Kohler engine-powered UltraMix lineup delivers the ultimate in mixing performance, product engineers contend, citing an exclusive symmetrical drum and patented paddle configuration. The design fosters paddle and drum contact with the mortar, and an exclusive paddle design moves the mix along horizontal and circular paths. The reinforced paddle rubber features two layers of woven fabric for added strength, minimizing tearing and increasing service life. Additionally, the UltraMix line is also equipped with solid steel dump handles and a high-strength telescoping axle. The latter allows the wheels to adjust from a towing width to under 36 inches, enabling the unit to easily pass through a door or gate opening. — Toro Co., Bloomington, Minn., www.toro.com
