I have the above model and the gear/chain drive is loud enough to require ear protection. Are your this loud or is mine a defective unit?

years ago i bought a cheap loud different one myself. maybe the noise is helping to scare away little kids from the mixer! :) monkeying with these will tire you out in a hurry. you'll learn all about the different good quikrete products but unless that concrete delivery truck won't come up your driveway out in the secluded mountains that noisy mixer will be at your next garage sale. i gave mine away to my friend a plumber. if you can assemble enough work for a concrete truck's minimum order to deliver to your job, estimate the work in a drawing with the depth and cost of the gravel base and depth and cost of concrete and approach a younger concrete contractor who will actually give you a ballpark estimate by phone. a concrete salesman who stays forever on an estimate and talks your ear off untill you sign his contract may not be the best for the small job. sometimes including all the work you really want done isn't as expensive as you think. add-ons like steps and replacing all broken sidewalks with new and pitching the rainwater away from the house are all part of your big concrete dreams. a bag of concrete in a mixer doesn't usually go far enough. we will always resent those appliances which consist of a washing machine motor a pulley and a drum even if they are inexpensive.
