FoxHunter 650W Electric Cement Mixer UK Review
The Foxhunter 240v 650w portable cement mixer is the most expensive on our top 5 list of cement mixers, where it ranked at number 1 on our list. There can be quite a difference in the price between different models of mixer but there are massive differences in capacity and power so this is to be expected due to vast differences in quality.
This one has an RRP of £250, but there are many places on line, where you can pick this mixer up for around £195 or even less. This model runs off 240v and has a very powerful, top of the range, 650w motor that powers through even a large mix with relative ease.
Its not every day that you will need to use a cement mixer but don't make the mistake of buying something that's cheap because you wont use it very often. If you are considering a purchase then obviously you need it and really they are a good investment.
This one has a 180l drum and has a mouth diameter of 400mm which should be good enough for any job. The cheaper you go, the less you will get and a good quality model like this will have a very good resale value if you want to sell it on after you have had your use out of it.
Be warned though, if you have your own cement mixer you will soon have a queue of family and friends that all need the "lend" of it for a "wee job"

Our Verdict on the FoxHunter 650w Cement Mixer
There is no doubt that this is an expensive but ultimately good value mixer, when compared to normal market prices for other mixers. It is however the best one on the market right now that we can find.
This is a very viable alternative to renting out an expensive mixer from a hire company and ending up keeping it three times as long as you originally expected !
If there is a better cement mixer for the amateur on the UK market right now, we have yet to find it.
