Bucket Splash Guard


Have you tried one of these? They are great for mixing mud fast and no mess. Even better mixing dry, whether it is texture or setting type mud. They are great! I got one this week. Bet you'll like it.

Re: Bucket Splash Guard


Why do all these guys promo videos suck!?
I mean, clearly I know you're trying to sell a product, but I mean seriously? We're not retards, we're drywallers. There's a difference!
Not a big one! But there is one.

When you mix your mud and it's as soupy as that and you angle your paddle so that mud goes flying everywhere....well ya...than you're a retard.

When you mix it a second time with the splash guard on and the mud doesn't even get on the splash guard at all!?!? Well then! Look at that! It's a miracle! He learnt how to use his drill properly!

Have to agree. It was a bit cheesy. But the Splash Guard works great.

I could send one to you and you could try it and make a video for them.

Hahaha! Maybe!
I'd do it for the sake of filming a good video because I think it would be challenging to do. Not gonna lie, it's not an easy product to do a video on. I mean, how much more boring can it get? lol.
It's half a bucket, which sits on another bucket. haha.
Would be interesting to see what I'd be able to come up with though.

I use another method for mixing my mud right now.
It does the same thing, but is also hands free
I have a video of that coming out soon.

Keep us posted. I would like to see your video. And I bet I could convince the owner to come on here and promote it. And maybe send ya one. But if he won't, I will. I have two and can only mix one at a time. Have never tried mixing two buckets at once. A drill in each hand mixing tow buckets would make another great video.

Re: Bucket Splash Guard


Have you attached it to other buckets?
We mix several at a time. (8 or 10)
When texturing we mix 12 to 20.
Will it stand up to that? One right after another? I don't imagine you mix one then use it and mix another.
The price isn't bad, either. About the same as a drill and mixer.
Intriguing.

Re: Bucket Splash Guard


Pull 3 or 4 scoops out of the bucket before ya throw in the boat paddle [bow tie]. This will save you alot of mess.

Intriguing.
So far it's stood up to everything I put it through no problem!
I haven't tried mixing bucket after bucket after bucket, but I have turned it on, walked away, cleaned my bazooka, clean my truck, go get a coffee and then come back and it's still mixing my mud for me!
I don't think you'll find a harder worker than that drill!
I'm not gonna lie, I'd like to say it allows me to be more productive and allows me to accomplish other tasks, but we more or less just stand there, drinking coffee, watching the drill, talking about how sweet it is that we don't have to be doing it! Hahaha!

I agree with you to a point. But to speed the mixing and leave the bucket full, you just snap this on and you can mix a lot faster without any mess. I works.

I bet that is what we would do too.
Have you used it to mix any bag mud, like texture or setting type?

All our mud down here is bag mud.
As far as setting compounds It's amazing!!
I was honestly very skeptical about mixing setting compounds with it because I didn't think the paddle would get all the powder in the corners and such, but to my amazement, it's seriously the best mixer I've ever tried.
My sheetrock and mud are sooo smoothe! I actually never put any thought into mixing my mud before. But this thing just like beats the sh!t out of the mud and it's like whipped cream!
So nice to work with!
Not only the drill, but the design of the paddle as well. First off, the paddle is huge! Like gigantic! It's extremely easy to clean because it's so big, you can use any brush or sponge to clean it.
And it's not long! so it doesn't take up allot of room.
I think that's why it mixes setting compounds so great, because of how big the paddle is. Just turn it on, let it mix, and slowly add your powder! Completely hands free.
