Always check your machine before using – cables, plugs, drum and stand. If anything is found damaged, do not use the concrete mixer until corrected.
Always wear your protective equipment including ear plugs, safety boots and goggles.
Always start the drum rotating before loading. Do not load a concrete mixer into a stationary drum. Starting the concrete mixer with a full load puts a severe strain on the motor and drum shaft.
Always store the concrete mixer in its normal upright position.
Do not move the concrete mixers while the drum is full.
Do not move the concrete mixer while it is still connected to the power supply.
Do not put your hand, shovel, or anything other than the concrete mixer into the drum while it is rotating.
You should wear gloves, long sleeves and full trousers to prevent the concrete mixes coming into contact with your bare skin.
Check that the mixer is sited firmly and safely near to your work area.
Check on how the on/off switch operates – before you switch the mixer on, you must know how to stop it. Make sure that your mixer is switched off before you plug it into the supply.
When you have finished work, make sure the drum and the concrete mixer are washed clean before the cement mix hardens. Two shovels full of clean gravel, with water, in the rotating drum will greatly assist removing any stubborn residue of the mixer.
Make sure that any extension cables or plug connections are dry and safe during operation.
