How the Mud Monster came about
Kyle Homola has always enjoyed tinkering out in the shop, and coming up with innovative ways to make things work better. People often refer to his projects and solutions as being 'Kyle rigged', but more often than not his ingenious solutions proved to work many times better than the way the product was originally built. As a mason, Kyle saw and experienced the frustrations of mixing mortar in a 5 gal bucket with a paddle mixer. Every laborer dreaded trying to mix that perfect batch of mud, as the process was often a messy headache resulting in a not so perfect batch of mud. Fortunately, Kyle has come out with an attachment for a drill, which solves all problems related to mixing mortar, concrete, dry pack, drywall mud, and practically any material that needs mixed! He started by bringing his 'Kyle rigged' drill attachments to work, and testing them out. After much input from others in the construction industry, and after trying many sizes and custom ways to make the mixer, the result is a perfected design to fast and efficiently mix material in a 5 gal bucket, or wheelbarrow... the Mud Monster!
