In checking here in Mansfield Ohio i found that it was
cheapier and MUCH less strenuous to have the concrete
brought in for a "BIG" pour... a 4x4x6 hole is 96 cu
ft... the 80lb back of concrete is 2/3 cu ft which
works out to lifting , dumping , mixing and dumping it
in the hole 146 times... you surely will not get a
good pour that way plus your back ,arms and legs will
hate you... having the concrete delivered assures a
good mix and pour with much less work and about the
same amount of money...
