Concrete mixers are heavy but still fairly portable. "Tip-up" versions normally come apart so that they may be easily moved and stored when not in use. Never overload a mixer; check the owner's manual for maximum capacity. After using the mixer, immediately clean the drum with clean water and coarse gravel. Turn it on and allow this mixture to clean the inside of the drum. After a few minutes, empty the drum then wash the outside of the drum with water and a stiff brush.
