My Father used to be a brick layer. He saw what I did to my hands recently trying to mix ingredients for soil and brought this over for me to use. *He used this tool for something or other before he retired, maybe to mix concrete? *I have learned that it is the equivalent of a big kitchen hand mixer. It's a little too much tool for me (too much torque) as it got away on me when I was trying to use it but my Dad mixed my batch of planting medium and finished in 15 minutes flat and all the air was out of the sphagnum. *I had to share this.
Don't ask me what type of an attachment is on the end or what type of a drill that is because I have no idea. *I do know it works like a dream and I was able to get enough mixed to have an entire garbage can of planting medium to set aside so I wasn't making a mess every other day. **
And yes, this sand was rinsed before I added it to the mix. *I still don't have the guts to do a "fizz" test. *
