    Rubimix best avoided like the black death. Any made in the past few years will spend more time waiting to be fixed by the rep than mixing.
    I use alfra-eibenstock, unbelievably capable mixer. Not too cheap though.
    Recently had a go with a raimondi digital mixer and for not a lot of money, they're very good.

    I tried an aldi mixer a few years ago. Lasted 2 days and the trigger broke.

    I use a sds drill because I like just unclip the mixer from the drill so it can be left in water bucket

    Honestly think it doesn't save when we buy cheap tools. Got to weigh up the lost time waiting for repairs or having to go shopping for replacement.
    I lost a day thanks to a rubi duplex breaking down after a few weeks. A lost day at 200quid plus the 100 or so for the rubi = same price as an eibenstock.
    My next mixer was eibenstock.

    Had mine since early 2000's.absolute beast of a machine, I think Kyle has a newer version and he says it is brilliant too. Mine cost a lot less than they do now as it was a special offer in a builders merchants.

    I know budgets are important but so is spending money wisely. I remember a thread recently were the OP wanted a good tile cuter that could handle 600's for £100 or so, that ain't happening! Sometimes it's better to over spend on what you initially thought if you've been advised why and in the long run not only will it make them money it'll also save them money.

    We've had 3 Aldi mixers in the past 7 years and still got 2 working now! Always worth having a back up. Apart from the DeWalt D2400 they are the Best Buy tool we have.

    What about the new Rubi mixers CTD have at £40 + vat? We've had one 8-10 weeks and no complaints so far. At the end of the day its only a big whisk!!
