  • Anyone know where I can get parts for a Transmix utility mixer (cement) made by Universal Pulleys Company, Wichita, KS?

  • If your close to the Allentown Pa area there was one at the bone yard just before the winter. Looked like it was missing a couple pieces but might have what you need. If you are close enough it might be worth a look see.

  • HiYa Homer-
    We have the Transmix Utility Mixer Parts & Operator Manual here in our MANUALS forum -click on the LINK below. I don't know how to order parts or if Universal is still in business. I do know of one about 56 miles from me, even tried to buy it from the guy once as it was also on the back of a Ford 2N but he didn't want to sell. Next time I'm that way and can stop and ask as he uses his. I think someone else here had one too -Jim Webb maybe???

  • Had one, long gone now. I used it quite a lot. Very handy. I still have some literature, not much.

    I looked into that company a little bit. Didn't learn much. I know that the design changed sometime in the late sixties. About that same time the company name changed from Universal Pulley to Carlson Company. Same address in Wichita. I don't know if the name change was just cosmetic or if it was a takeover. I found the Carlson Company online and I sent them an inquiry about TransMix mixers, availability of parts, any old literature they might still have, etc. No response.

  • Good morning all – not exactly on topic, but the manual for this mixer says 1 bag of cement (1 cubic foot) and a 5 to 1 ratio. Does this mean the mixer’s total concrete capacity is 6 cubic feet? –tks grant

  • The literature I've seen mention two different size drums. I was never sure if I had the large one or the small one because I had nothing to compare it to.

    On mine, I just used the "just add water" mix. I could mix up 3 80 lb bags at a time. I don't know if that tells you what you need to know or not.

  • good morning all -thanks for the response. That sounds like closer to 2 cubic feet than 6. Looks like the 80 lbs bags of Quickrete are good for .6 of a cubic foot. I build some gates and do the installations and it would make quite a show, using a 60 year old tractor and mixer to do the footing pour. -kts grant
