I also use the 1800'w mate and they have two handles on them, surely if you have negative paddle in it'll pull it down from the top anyway, never had a lumpy mix.
What do you do if for some reason you want a slightly stiffer mix ? Not having a pop mate each to their own i guess.
I had forgoten what a complex task putting gear together is. I have a labourer to do all the tricky stuff, all I have worry about is putting it on the wall.
Had mine 12 years. Had to buy new paddles but otherwise only paid out Â£75 for new brushesBest mixing drill out is Eibenstock it's a German make drill.. Guarantee is life time.. Â£330 worth every pound..
