    Default Ready Mix and the cold.


    Does leaving readymix tubs out in the frost effect the gear when you come to use it?

    I would think it would depend on how freezing it was are you talking -5 or a light frost? i would think so considering the water thats in it.i think it starts going like chewing gum and you have to keep mixing it up to keep it useable,having said that your not really ment to use it under 5 degrees..but when does it go above that at this time of year.

    I had this with BG ready mix, opened the tub one morning and it was all jack-frost patterns on the top! It'll never be the same after that, its like its got grit through it. You're as well throwing it in the skip
