Default Aldi concrete mixer

Son wanted a cheap and cheerful - even disposable - mixer for extension
work, I told him about the Aldo one and we got it.

He doesn't want to dispose of it now, it works very well and is the quietest
he and Spouse have ever heard. It claims to have an induction motor, that
could be the reason.

I don't think I've ever seen one using a universal motor.
