We've got one of these for Hardwall, adhesive and render but use the smallest size (1000 or 1100w) that Refina sell for skimming. Had the small one for over twenty years and don't understand why anyone would want to lug anything bigger about just to mix skim.

We have several mixers but like you say we always pick up the 1100w machine nice an light we got the 1800w machine for the power for pulling small batches of krend an stuff like that

Just waiting on the arrival today of my new best friend, the 1800w Refina megamixer. I feel like it’s Christmas all over again Lol.

The firm I work for decided to buy me a new mixer as my own burnt out on their jobs. They brought me a nordstrand 1800w double paddle I tried it for the first time and have to say I'm impressed. I tried it on a 2 bag mix and it pissed it with ease. The bloody thing felt like it wanted to take off and it wasn't even on full speed lol not bad for £100. I would recommended it to anyone

Apparently those double paddle jobs will tear the bottom out of your buckets in no time at all. I'm fairly sure that they weren't even intended for plaster but epoxy resins.

You know what I did think about that so I tried to keep it off the bottom and not knock the sides too much and it still mixed OK anyway they supply my buckets so if it does no loss to me :):)
