Graco Inc. (Minneapolis) has added to its ToughTek line of products with the CM20 continuous mixer, a piece of equipment that the company says offers contractors a portable and more economic way to approach continuous mixing.

“Contractors now have a mixer that’s not only easy to operate, but one they can rely on to deliver consistent material mix, batch after batch,” said Bryce Gapinski, Graco Product Manager for the ToughTek line of products.

Graco Inc. has added to its ToughTek line of products with the CM20 continuous mixer, a piece of equipment that the company says offers contractors a portable and more economic way to approach continuous mixing.

The mixer is rated for a 120-volt outlet, allowing for use at nearly any job site, according to Graco. It’s also simplified in its controls—only an on/off switch and an adjustable valve for water flow are featured on the machine.

Comparably, the company says, the CM20 is lightweight and can disassemble making it easy to transports and clean.

The company notes, however, that despites its weight, the mixer can hold up to three 80-pound bags of pre-blended stucco.

The materials/applications that the machine is recommended for include stucco/EIFS, plasters, self-leveling underlayments, refractory materials, masonry materials and grouts.

Graco says the product aims to increase productivity and is aimed at contractors who are “choosing continuous mixing over hand and batch mixing because of the quality of the mix, higher output and ease of operation.”
