    I would be concerned about the rpm on that, it's not geared? The hilti I had was powerful by way way to slow to whip up a mix.

    i think their 22 v combi drill is good. A guy on here mixes with one I believe.

    really the dewalt is as good as you need, mixes up 30lt buckets of filler in 2 minutes, you want quicker?

    The he mixes are really nice too, seem to have less air in them with the marshaltown paddle.

    That will depend of other contributing factors like material type( brand) and how efficient you are mixing. I would hesitate mixing arrow joint cement with it but not tried.

    Two 5 ah batteries should see you through the day no matter what, I just done s small 3 bed, still got 2/ thirds of battery left.

    I bought a silverline ( bit cheap and poorly made) mixing paddle recent, it's the traditional English type that comes with all our mixing drills. Big as I could get with a hex to fit the drill.

    its brilliant at mixing, blows the yank types out the water, my marshaltown is skip ward bound.

    Would it mix 5 bags of BG filler & 4bags of joint cement in a day ?

    sorry for being a bit pedantic, but I just want to make sure I get right drill. Milwaukee have one with a 6 a.h battery also.

    Yea I looked at that but after all my issues I just took beermonster's advice. The bigger the battery the better, as long as drill is brushless , 3 speed and at least 80nm of torque your golden plus you get 2 batteries.

    Yes two full batteries will mix all that, just be sure you mix and pour in the material at the same time! No pouring in bags then mixing... That's shit. You want the 140mm silverline mixing paddle or a better make but don't bother with smaller.

    What size of mixing paddle head have you got. Currently in my 110v collomix I have a 140mm head paddle. Would a cordless drill work with something this size or will I need a smaller one ?

    The drills work with a hex end not m14 so just look for the biggest hex end mixing paddle. The marshaltown town is ok. Maybe you can find a 140mm. They are not expensive so try a few would be my advice.

    edit. I have a 140mm silverline, you can get much better ones just look up 140mm hex mixing paddle on yahoo.

    Anyone using cordless drills get a bottle of ' deoxit' it improves conductivity when sprayed on the metal contact area of you battery and on the ones on the drills battery docking station.

    improved the performance of my drill by a large margin. More power!

    got to replace the chuck for a old fashioned one with a bit to tighten it. The new ones clog up ..

    15 so no problem.. Fuck the stick, you wipe your arse with your hands to? Did my years with the idiot stick, you can tape quicker and better with material mix by a drill!

    Thats all that matters to me!
