Jun 29, 2008 · On a serious note, the only mixer you'll get in that price range will likely be a small 5 CF drum model. If you take your driveway as an example, 100' x12' is going to be somewhere in the 15 CY range at 4" thick and 22 CY at 6" thick. 15 CY would calculate out to 81 loads in your little mixer, and the 6" drive would be nearly 120 loads.
