    Concrete chute for the cement mixer

    Everyone knows that cement mixers are hardly use friendly without using a wheelbarrow. when you tip them to dump the mix on the ground the mixer is right in the mud unless you dump into a wheelbarrow and cart it away.
    Well since I have my mixer mounted on its own trailer it can be moved right to the pour but as with all mixers it dumps almost under-itself. I don't want to dump into my wheelbarrow only to move that a few feet then dump it so I made a chute for my mixer
    My folder break is not finished but finished enough to make a few easy bends

    the chute is triple bent on both sides for strength and taper bent wide to narrow shallow to deep for directional flow and control
