Hey Chris
I was just thinking of this.  I don't have plans but one could use a small car or truck as the power for such a thing.  I was thinking along the lines of 55 gallon drum cut in half and the mixer shaft welded to an old wheel rim.  Because you could only jack the vehicle up so far height for dumping the mixed load might be an issue.
