Dear Chris

We use "Zwangsmischer" (pug mill mixer) – strong mortar or cement-mixers for mixing straw - earth - sand.
Usually these kind of mixers have a turning axe with three turning wheels on it.
We are able to mix great amounts of material in short time.
The problem is always a lot of power.
On YouTube I saw this, which I think is a good idea for power and transport of these heavy materials:

kind regards
