INDCO Gear Drive Mixers Are Ideal for Mulch Dyes

April 5, 2022  By INDCO

Spring is just around the corner, and it will soon be “mulch madness” as landscape supply houses and mulch makers fire up the mulch colouring mixers and plan for a busy season.

Regardless of wood type or species, moisture content, temperature, and other factors, one instruction is common among all colorant manufacturers – “mix thoroughly.”

INDCO, a world leader in industrial mixer technology, presents their BGTC-series gear drive IBC bracket mount mixers designed specifically to mix light to medium viscosity materials or to suspend settled solids, including mulch colorant formulations.  BGTC series gear drive mixers are available with air, electric, and variable speed electric operation, from ¾ to 2 HP, to provide various levels of torque.

Units include shaft, folding impellers to easily fit through 6-inch tote openings, and expandable mounting bracket. Toggle clamps directly to steel tote cages from 34” to 48” wide.  All models feature 90-degree, right-angle gear reducers for low-profile configuration.  INDCO BGTC-series mixers are ideal for mulch dyes and colorants as well as other heavier bodied primers, and coatings, including those with high solids content.


The totally enclosed, fan cooled (TEFC) and totally enclosed, non-ventilated (TENV) models are supplied with cord, plug and switch.  Explosion-proof (EP) models must be wired by customer.  Variable-speed electric models include a speed controller pre-wired and mounted on the mixer.  Options including lifting eyes and forklift channel allow easy handling for installation and removal.

Located in New Albany, Indiana, INDCO is a leading manufacturer of industrial mixers.  Since 1975 they have designed and manufactured a completed lineup of mixers for batch sizes up to 50,000 gallons.  They use premium brand components in their robust designs to deliver high quality mixers that earn their customer’s trust.  In addition to premier equipment, INDCO prides itself on providing fast, friendly customer service and immediate technical support.
