    Are you talking about the self mixers where you load the materials into the truck and it proportions them and mixes them at the auger out the back?

    I havent bought one yet still looking. If you have 2 of these are they worth going into business and will they make any money? It has got hard to get concrete around here and when you do it is a 5 yard min. It should go good here none in this area of Ar.
    Thanks
