How effective is a cement mixer as a tumbler? Is it better wet or dry?

I'm about to purchase this http://www.homedepot.com/p/1-2-HP-Portable-Cement-Mixer-105890DPT/202081851#.USAtXFf3h8E just wants some thoughts if its possible to use it as a tumbler.

it will work just fine as a dry tumbler

It's not all that uncommon with the 50 bmg reloaders. I think it would be overkill for any cartridge smaller.

What type of cases are you cleaning and what quantities are you trying to clean? Are you stepping up from a vibratory case tumbler or is this your first go at it?

you will need to add some "fins" to the inside so it properly moves the brass around. There are a few thrads on here of people who have done similar.
