Go ahead and get 2 other guys (who know how to use wheelbarrows - yeah, 
I'm serious...) and have three 'barrows ready.  The R E A L ones like 
contractors use, not those phony little ones.

I did this for a 7x7x4 hole several years ago.  We moved 8 yards3, MOL, 
with three wheelbarrows within whatever the concrete companies standard 
"wait time" was (45 minutes ???).  No problem - small amount of sweat - 
finished job !  Then you can brag to the wife about how man-ly you are - 
arrr-arrr-arrr !!
