Battery mixers

Has anyone tried a battery paddle mixer . Want to know what the power is like ? Could they for example mix 2 bags of drywall adhesive or hard wall? Or are they just for skimming ? Which is best I’ve seen Dewalt and collomix make them

Might give it a miss then . They’re not cheap are they. I mainly do domestic work now . Probably have around 4 /5 bags a day . Thought it would be handy rather than keep getting transformer out van

I am on my 3 battery now... it does do everything well but in my opinion i cant see £600

I don’t mind paying a little more for the convenience of mixing up where I like without the need for power. In the short time I’ve had it it’s been a blessing

Tbf im gonna agree especially on domestic jobs there is hardly any room sometimes just the thought of mixing anywhere there and then is good ,I have used the dewalt one but haven’t purchased one as my 240v is still ok

Dont get me wrong it is bloody handy and is coping with what I put it through but I wonder how @choppa is coping with his?
@megamix ah yes iv been using it since I got it I can’t see it being worth £600 but it’s good for a half decent hit. I let the brother in law use it to knock up some tile adhesive it didn’t have the beans. It’s a good drill for skimming and a little bit of hard wall. I’d say good for domestic but for site it will struggle like f**k. No doubt the cordless mixers will get better in the years. If I would to buy one I’d got for collomix or the metabo just for the speed on the trigger and couple hundred cheaper.

I knew a plasterer that just used a big sds bosch battery drill. I never knew you can get battery mixer. I still hand mix as I find it easier and less messy on smaller jobs.. That's just crazy when I think about it. I really need a battery mixed as the cable dose my nut on the mains mixer plus its a pain to handle and keep clean

Just tried the metabo, knocked up a bucket of airless with it before putting it through the machine, I'd be lying if I would say I was impressed. Crock of shite, even the no load speed is slow, however it does make a nice mix, just takes time. Will be keeping it could come handy when no power

Will try it again on a few bags of multi next week, but I think it is only good enough for small mixes and for emergencies.
I haven't tried the default just seen loads of review of it, I only have a default stapler and Stanley knife have no aspirations to buy into their system

The collomix and the metabo use the same batteries, the bodies are very similar but not identical, does anyone know if the actual motors are the same? the no load speeds are different but that could just be one company turning the power down to aid longevity. any thoughts?
