Belle mixer - Honda engine repairs

We use Belle mixers and always seem to have problems with the engines. We have used Robin engines in the past and gave up on them because of unreliability.More recently we've used Honda engines and about 18 months ago an engine started smoking a lot, our plant hire company /supplier said it's some component inside that wears out, leaks oil hence the smoke and that he found it's better to buy new than to attempt to repair.18 months down the line and the same problem has occured again. Any one familiar with this and if so what did you do - Repair or replace ?

    To date this ebay seller seems to have the answer to most Belle Mixer problems, swift delivery.

    I had a belle petrol mixer with a Honda engine for over 12 years and it never missed a beat, the issue I had was with the paddles inside the drum and the welds kept breaking, I finally scrapped it because the drum was looking tatty but the engine is still going to this day as I gave it to a builder friend

    I now have a electric belle mixer what is so quite compared to the petrol version, the only reason I changed from petrol to electric is they are over £ 100 cheaper

    no problem what so ever, normally ask if its OK to leave an extension lead plugged in and leave it in a plastic bag with a plastic bucket over the top in case it rains

    or if they have a power supply have a key to the garage or shed
