    Dang, how much feed you planning to mix? I make/mix chicken fed and use a modified electric cement mixer I picked up cheap----Works Great!

    I plan to mix 1000kg per batch and per month, what's the size of your cement mixer? could you upload photos of that?

    You might better get you a Big Mixer. I am only mixing about 50lbs at a time with my standard electric cement mixer----which only takes about 1 minute to mix(so I could mix that much in a hour). I been using it about 10 years with no problem. Like this one.

    I just modified the mixing paddles to make them work good for feed.
