Did this video help you?

romansten9: Nice video. Unfortunately I was only watching to see the wiring (only yhing not in the manual) and you skipped over that! Haha. Not sure how you got the paddles to line up when the 2 yellow arrows on your 2 drum halves weren't lined up. Maybe you got lucky and got it 180 degrees off so it still worked.

a2zmovieproductions: I have continued to use this mixer and have had no problems with it. Yes some paint has flaked off in a few small spots but not an issue. I would just spray some Rustoleum on it :) After almost 2 years I have am still very pleased.

Mike Achee: Thank you for taking the time to video putting the mixer together. I was geting pretty frustrated with the sorry instructions it came with. Thank you. 

N Russell: Thanks for the video! Mine is exatcly like this but from home depot and I would have been lost without this video. The only confusing part was the numbered bags. Mine were numbered differently and I think you said to use bag 12 twice. I used bag 6 for attaching the arm to the stand and had to play around with it before i figured it all out. :-)

Shawn R.: At 3:01 in this video, you show the paddles installed. How much distance do you have between the paddle and the drum, particularly on the lower half of the drum? Yours look quite close, as I would expect it to be. Mine are several inches away from the drum, which is NOT going to make any mixing very effective. Yes, the paddles are placed correctly (same as yours anyway)...with the 'V' of the paddle pointing in the direction of drum rotation (clockwise). Kidding...but that is what the instructions say (step 18 page 8). The drum DOES turn CCW, not CW. Thanks! The instruction are indeed ridiculous.

Mark Ouwehand: Hi, great video, thanks a lot! I am looking for a machine that can mix flours and other ingredients well. Do you think this one could do the job? I noticed some paint coming off, that would not be great in food. Please advice. Thanks again.

a2zmovieproductions: I love this mixer. I have mixed about 40-50 bags in it and had no problems at all. I can't remember if I specified in the video, but I mix two 80lb bags of concrete at a time. I first put in 1.5 gallons of water then I put in 1 80lb bag. After it is mixed in good (soupy), I add the 2nd 80lb bag. AFTER I add the 2nd 80lb I turn the mixer down to almost a 90 degree angle. If you do not then it won't mix good. I have it at about 45 degrees to add water and 2 bags of mix. This works great!

Paul Bottine: Thanks for the vid. Watched it 3 weeks ago after I ordered and glad I did. Mixer got in this week and I put it together today. After watching I picked up some grease and sealant so had that on hand. If you had not posted it would have taken me a lot longer to put the thing together particularly since yes, the instructions suck and also I did not have 15 bags of hardware. I had 13. 1-12 and another number 1. Again, thanks for posting. Oh and my junction box was broken too.

DOMINICPAULL: I had the usual problems, but they would have been much more difficult to solve and much more time-consuming without your video. I was having trouble setting the key into the keyway on the driveshaft, so I installed the drive pulley on the driveshaft without the key, taking care to align the two keyways squarely, and then carefully tapped the oiled key into the keyway, as if tapping in a nail. She went in smoothly. Timewise, 5 hours, but she runs! Thanks, again, friend.

thedirtygermans: thanks for sharing. the cameras focus adjustment sound every 3 secs adds to the noise when it runs; haha.

tony harkin: Thanks for showing how to do the blades. The instructions are pretty poor. Took me a while to figure out that the round metal slug was to go above the spring for the handle. The bolt presses on the slug, which presses on the spring.

a2zmovieproductions: I hope you are as pleased as I was. Let me know how it goes.

jonessaddle: Thank You I orderd one today, and I will have grease and sealant on the ready. Thanks Again

Dasdfjkl: I think I am going to buy one. It should pay for itself by saving the money of renting a mixer. Only down side is I have to find a place to store it.

Dasdfjkl: You can't get the bigger side of the gasket to the outside because it is cut in a circle, and the circle can only go on in one position. Were you able to get apart the gear end where the gear shaft bearings are? My gear is a bit hard to turn but I can not get to the bearings. I did undo the bearings that it tips on, they were horrible. I couldn't tip the barrel, I had to pull off the ends, steel wool them and grease them.

James Spain: Thank you for the video. The printed instructions suck to say the least... funny that I notices the same misalignment of arrows on the tub and had to take out a couple of bolts to put the paddles in.... I also used gorilla glue for the gasket sealer which I think will be ok.. had some gobs streaming down the inside which I'm sure will help mix the cement. Plugged it in and it worked like a champ... I fell for some of people trying to put this thing together that aren't mechanically inclined.

91945punx: Thanks a lot for the video.

MrJHEagle: Thank you for the video and glad you never got your finger caught while it was going )))

enlightened58: Thanks for this video now I know what I was doing wrong with the bolt and spring tension unit lol. I was like what's this flat washer with no hole for. I have one question for you about the wheel unit for the belt that push's on the piston. There is a small slot on both the wheel unit and the piston does the small metal pin I guess you could call it slide into the slot to engage better the two for the turning of the wheel through tension? I hope you understand what I'm talking about.

Peter Smith: I skipped the gasket sealant and mine works just fine no leaks

jwright650: I have oone of these at home, still in the box. Hoping to get it put together soon and mix some concrete. How is it holding up now that you have had it a while?

jonessaddle: How do you like this mixer. Does it work well. I am thinking of buying one. Thanks for the great videos.

TheS killet: I wish I would have watched this last night before I put mine together.

mike michael: Did yours make a clicking noise around the electric motor pulley. Thanks for the video took me 1 1/2 hour instructions suck

BattMann911: Yes, the "key" (small square piece of metal about 1" [25mm] long) goes into the slot (keyway) in the shaft (what you refer to as a piston, I presume) before you slide the pulley (wheel unit) onto the shaft. It transmits the torque from the pulley to the shaft and prevents the pulley from spinning around the shaft.

Adam: Also remember to line up the arrows on the drum halves. Otherwise the holes won't be perfect

wulf67: When Rich Froning works out every day he is not doing some random WOD pulled out of a hat like all these Crossfitters do. He is doing a real training program designed by someone who knows something about PROGRAMMING and how to improve performance instead of just getting tired or "smoked". He's doing STRENGTH training. There are no marathons or interpretive dance routines in the "CrossFit games". The STRONGEST athlete wins.

lcluvybear: omg kinda scary i jumped. is he ok?
DenHvideHund: Hi X Hover. Nice video. Have one/two questions for you. Hope you find time to answer. FPV Cam. When using a 12v on a 4s setup, do you use any UBEC/SBEC. Which one could you recommend. Also about the FPV cam. I am looking into the Super HAD from getfpv, since the TBS69 is out of stock almost everywhere. Is this an ok cam or will I miss out, compared to the TBS69. Thx again.
