Mixit slurry stirrers any good?

then have all 3 heights of mixit and pocket the change!
cant believe the Reck is quicker but have no experience of it in action.
I used and developed my tower stirrer by contracting for 14 years and most people were astonished how quick it was.
I was astonished at how quick the mixit mixed my store, unbelievable.

not sure what you have spent so far but would think £100/year would cover it. you are a busy contractor so things like pto's are pretty busy.
tower stirrers seem good for 8 years and then the belts fail. best then to renew the pulley bearings at the same time. belts are around £300-400
Lagoon stirrers, providing the main bearing is not regularly submerged, last about 7 years untouched.
as usual, the wreckers take most of the spares I supply. Bending the PTO's u/j's EQUALLY is really important as the impellers do take a lot of continuous power.
how many people have not yet touched their machines? must be half of the customers from my records.

New impellor here as the contractor ran it sitting on the concrete floor of the lagoon!:confused:
New bearings supplied as we thought they had failed because of wobble caused by the damaged impellor,originals all ok and now the spares!

re costs - had a farmer collect the main and pto bearings last night.
he has a 1997 20ft mixit lagoon stirrer. it was the second time i have seen him in that time.
total costs so far (ignoring upgrading his impeller) is £400
this equates to £20 per year for this farmer, and service intervals of 10 years!
