    I didnt realize you were really serious......I thought you were
    joking.

    In my experience, anything more than a 1/2 yard per session is worth
    getting:

    1) a transit mix trailer from a local rental yard (if you have one
    that supplies concrete)
    2) a site mix truck (dry components)

    mixing concrete by hand (ie, even an powered mixer) sucks

    cheers

    not only that but bought by the truckload concrete is many times
    cheaper than by the bag, or buying sand cement and gravel.

    some years ago concrete at least 5 yards was 75 bucks a yard
    delivered.
    the materials to make it near 200 bucks a yard.
