Cement Mixers vs. Mortar Mixers – What’s the Difference?
Cement and mortar mixers are similar in that they both quickly and thoroughly mix, but their functionality is quite different.
Cement (concrete) mixers have a drum that spins – picture the cement truck you see while driving down the road. The spinning action of the drum is what mixes the cement. Since the cement is being mixed on-site and not delivered via truck, there aren’t any concerns about premature settling. Our concrete mixers are gas-powered and offer drum capacities ranging from 6CF (1/2 to 1 bag) to 12CF (1.5 to 2 bags).
Mortar mixers, on the other hand, have a fixed drum that does not spin. Within the drum, there are paddles or arms that rotate in a circular fashion, mixing the materials. A mortar mixer is more of a heavy-duty mixer intended for stiffer, more abrasive mixes like mortar, stucco, thin set, plaster, epoxy, terrazzo, drywall mud, paint, or grout. Our mortar mixers are either gas or electric powered and offer capacities ranging from 9cf (2 bags) to 12cf (3 bags).
