Quote from: n74tg on October 23, 2008, 07:39:44 PMThanks Mike, but that website gives me the info I already have; ie volume of concrete needed. The number of 40 or 80 lb bags is for premix concrete (already contains sand and gravel). I mix mine from raw ingredients because it is substantially cheaper that way.
