The are always turning if there is wet cement inside. Because wet cement settles really quickly so if it isn't turning it will dry on the bottom of the mixer.

    Very true- the great thing about concrete is its quick drying trait. In fact, when Rome learned to make concrete, their buildings and roads became much more sturdy. That is why there is so much Roman architecture standing today as well. Seth Ashford | http://www.carmixcanada.ca/

All these answers are for square objects. How do I find the measurements of a round object, i.e. a cement mixer?


Hi Debbie:
You still get to use your calculator, but you need to use the mathematical formulae dealing with circles.
Area = pi times r squared
Volume of a cylinder = Area (of one end) times length.

For your cement mixer, (Average the diameter for simplicity)
All of the measurements need to be in the same units, lets use inches, then convert it to cubic feet.....
the volume would be:
pi (22 divided by 7)
times
1/2 diameter
times
1/2 diameter
times
depth

For my ancient mixer that would be:
22 / 7 x 10" x 10" x 22" = 6,914 cubic inches
1 cubic foot equals 12" x 12" x 12" equals 1728 cubic inches.
6,914 divided by 1728 equals 4 cubic feet.

Now we don't fill it right up, but that is its capacity.

Hope that helps.
By the way, my mixer likes 10 shovel fulls of navvy, 2 shovels of type 10 cement, and about 2 quarts of water to get a nice mix.
I do the water first,
then 5 navvy
then 2 cement
then another 5 navvy,
then just enough water to get the right consistency.
Cheerfuls!

A belle cement mixer,wont stay on when start button is pushed,changed switch ,still the same?


Sometimes the most simplest of fixes is verifying that you have voltage at your outlet and that you have voltage getting to the motor.

Check the motor's overload button; reset if necessary.
Take resistance readings:
  • start capacitor
  • run capacitor
  • and motor

If anyone of their specs are out of whack, that's the component that is defective and will need to be replaced.
