Working at my aunties. She offered me couple of cheap £3 flexi tubs . No thanks I said, not strong enough. Had an idea and joined two together with taped handles. Solid.

They used to make them over here with string in them almost indestructible unfortunately we live in an age where nothing lasts so they can sell you more.

Ive got one of those putz buckets. Theyre made of titanium! Absolutely hammered mine for about 2 years. Mixing in it. Rubble in it. Been knocked off scaffold the lot. Still keeps going

Never knew about those putz tubs. Need to order one, we've got a bucket made from tyre rubber it's a heavy b*****d but it will probably outlast the human race.

you can beat the crap out of them putz buckets with a scaff tube and they still keep going, never bother washing them out anymore just beat them up instead, lets the anger out.

You can't fill it right up to the brim if it's going on the board, got a tall 75 litre bucket I use for skimming now. Use the putz bucket for bonding etc.

Dimensions are important, taller & narrower helps you mix it quicker without it going everywhere like those feckin gorillas

Homebase are doing the flexis cheap , picked a couple of 2 baggers up for £1.50 each.
But they are shite now , used to have one lasted years now im paranoid everytime i have to lift them as the handles snap.

the collomix is variable speed so only let it go full wack once the mix is thick enough

:numberone: im the courser and theres lads here struggling to use the variable speed on their mixer trigger....whod ave thunk it
Using gorillas either a) goes everywhere or b) takes too long to mix.
Variable speed? I haven't time to be fecking around with speeds and switches on a drill, I want to drop it in the bucket and GO!
Never a prob regarding the mix kitchy?
Don't know what you mean really...[emoji85]

Not taken as a dig Lodan, don't be silly.
Your keeping the drill slow by whatever means, why?
So it doesn't go all over the place is the answer!!!
