  • Ot, old cement mixer
  • I am thinking about purchasing an old cement mixer from someone online. It origionally had a hit and miss engine but is without an engine currently. I would add a honda 13 horse engine i have. It says "Remmel Mfg" on it but no other identifiable marks. I was going to buy a harbor freight one but thought this would be heavier duty and last longer. I plan on using it with my 2n and auger for landscape and other projects around house/ hobby farm. Any advise or info, especially what premix capacity should be would be appreciated!

  • The Ford-Ferguson tractors used an aftermarket company called Universal Pulleys, who made their Transmix that was a utility mixer for grain, cement, manure, shine, or whatever. We have some info here in our MANUALS forum on them including charts -SEE LINK. It's your tractor and you can do whatever you want, but might want to consider how much you intend to use it and if it would' be cheaper to just go to your local rent-all outlet and borrow a mixer for a day. If you just want to fab your own, consider documenting how you make it with pictures to load in our HOW-TO's forum. Good luck.

  • This is not the type attached to the tractor. This is the type ran off of a separate engine

  • If the mixer used to be run on an old hit&miss engine, be aware that the new engine will operate at a much higher RPM, so you will need to change the pulleys to keep the mixer at the original speed. It may take a jackshaft or reduction gear to accomplish this.
