Morning, afternoon, evening

Im looking for people's opinion on what's a decent mixer?

i want to upgrade and don't want to spend much more than £250 ish but want something that lasts.

Cheers

belle 1600e £199. the best in you price range.
refina 1800w about £360
I had a belle 1600 and it burn't out . i have a refina m22 , look around net for eibenstock ( same refina) to get a good price £295? as it's in a different league to the belle imo. smoother ,lighter,, better quality that lasts. You will own it for many years

are you sure that it has burned out? i thought my refina 1800 had burned out, but when we stripped it down it was the ball barring that sits between the motor and the gearbox had shattered, replaced that and away it goes. i do have an old refina that we use fore spares.

Are they 160 I thought was 150 still very good price for what you get, refina are the best IMO but you'll struggle to get 1 on money u want to spend,travis are selling belle as 110 &240 so shop about as 110v puts some ppl off

1800w eibenstock are very good, pretty much mix anything they will, recently got a cordless hitatchi drill 1050w (think the same power as the small refina drills) great for mixing up skim coat, plus you don't have to mess around with transformers/generators. payed 230 pounds for it from a place called toolstop. bargain ( £400 in screwfix)

Was told that perles have stopped producing therefore not selling anymore.recently got my old perles 1150w out as my eibenstock 1800w packed in(not sure why yet)had the brushes replaced on the perles for about £20 as it was starting to smell like a hornby railway set.now it runs like a dream,the guy said that the perles is such a good simple design that if anything goes wrong there's not much that can be replaced.

Perles are still going - they are part of a massive outfit called Hidria and based in Slovenia...

They will be available again through Carobyn from late May 2014 - just the one model for now in 110v or 230v and with the larger 160 negative paddle. Power is around 1250watts - good for three bags of finish.

We'll also have a supply of replacement brushes and switches too. Watch this space...

Hi, we're in East Sussex, but, if you get them serviced locally you can ask your repair shop to order the parts direct. A replacement switch for the 1800 watt motor is usually £44.50 plus £3.75 postage, plus VAT.
