Our new mixer hire scheme means that a SoRoTo mixer can be borrowed for the length of the project, and then given back after use. Saving you money on equipment costs, storage and upkeep.

SoRoTo forced action mixers
SoRoTo was established in 1986 and created the original forced action mixer. They are now a world-leading manufacturer of mixers, paddle mixers and belt conveyors.
The original mixers were constructed by a master bricklayer, Benny Andersen, who wanted to create a practical, reliable and portable machine for indoor tiling, flooring, concrete renovation and regular masonry.
This inspired the creation of a range of large capacity pan mixers that are durable, efficient, simple to use, are easily transported and can be powered by a regular domestic output or generator.
Why choose a SoRoTo pan mixer?
SoRoTo pan mixers today are the ultimate mixers for commercial projects. These professional mixers are ideal for mixing a huge range of materials: epoxies, resins, screeds, polymer, plastics, plaster, sealants, paints and adhesives quickly and easily.
These mixers provide a much faster, more effective and convenient solution than mixing by hand or relying on tumble mixers. The robust paddles will mix the contents of the pan to the perfect consistency in a matter of minutes. This saves time and allows members of the team to get on with another part of the job.
Each mixer is designed and manufactured to withstand and thrive under even the harshest of conditions when being used on site.
Hire Resin Mixer
We’re often asked “Can we hire a forced action mixer?” by a lot of our regular customers. To help them out and ensure we’re providing a complete service to all contractors, we made the decision to offer the hire of a SoRoTo mixer.
Resin mixer hire means that a SoRoTo mixer and all necessary accessories can be loaned for the length of a project. This allows professionals to avoid needing to make a sizeable investment and having to consider storage and upkeep – instead it is rented and given back at the end of the project.
GCL Products are delighted to offer mixer hire to any customer who purchases resin bound kits from ourselves for specific resin bound projects.
What is included?
When hiring a mixer from us, you will receive the following pieces of equipment:
SoRoTo 100L: The 100L is our best-selling forced action mixer. It is able to mix up to 240kg of materials and is able to hold an industry-standard 4 bag mix – making it ideal for resin bound installers. It is light and narrow enough to fit through standard doorways. It can be taken right where it is needed, instead of having to down tools to carry small buckets or wheelbarrows of mixed materials back to where the installer is working.
3KVA Tool Transformer: The Tool Transformer is perfectly suited to being used with SoRoTo mixers. Site transformers are most commonly used on larger sites when many trades are working side-by-side on separate elements of a job. It is made from extra-rugged GRP to withstand harsh conditions and is IP44 rated and splashproof.
230v Extension Lead: The extension lead is perfect for use with our mixers and other appliances that can be connected directly from mains electrical output. It means professionals have access to a power source whilst working away from mains power. It is tested to UK safety standards.
1220w Paddle Mixer: This handheld electric mixer is designed for regular use. It can be used in conjunction with a pan mixer when working with resin bound gravel and combined with the GA120 whisk it is perfect for combining Part A and Part B resin binders. It is robust and durable, designed to create a smooth and consistent mix.
