Hey, I’m Eric Stromer. Mixing concrete can really be a difficult chore, the old fashion ways with a shovel, and a hoe, and a wheelbarrow, and a lot of back breaking labor. You can simplify your life by going out and getting one of these bad boys. It’s called s half-inch mixing drill. It powers its way through any material that you need to mix. It’s very easy to operate. There’s an on and off switch, a forward and reverse. And for our purposes here in mixing concrete in a five galloon bucket. One of these pale bits works fantastic. All you have to do is use the classic key chuck system, open it up, buy yourself one of this for about seven bucks. This you can rent at any local hardware store. Let me show you how it is to operate, watch this. I’m going to mix a five galloon bucket of cement no time flat, check it out. A little bit pour with cement, a little bit of sand, a little bit of water. I’ll drill those, right in the bucket. Another perfectly mix batch of concrete. It’s so easy with a half-inch mixing drill, a perfect addition to anyone’s toolbox.
