Someone posted the name of a franchise recently which does the mixing on
the spot. Can I find the thread?
My neighbour has just told me he needs 1.5 cubic metres and I wondered
if this method might be appropriate
Annoying when that happens, isn't it :-)
It was in the "Cost of skip hire" thread and the company mentioned was
Mixamate (no personal experience of same).
Yes, that's an ideal size.
I have used a service (sorry no name) that used a sealed auger type
mixer which arguably gives a more consistent mix that can be controlled
in strength and metered down to a bucket, huge automated truck prob
close to the 32T limit. Others have reported variability in the quality
of open manual mixers so take care. I don't know which the Mixamate
It was 90quid a cube when I used it, many moons ago so expect it to be
more than that, but I'd still expect it to be under 200quid for that
Thanks for the warning. It's a ramp into a garage, the neighbour knows
what he is doing and has done a decent prep with plenty of hardcore, so
the mix quality is probably not *too* important. (It's replacing an inch
of hand-mix on top of earth!).
