The spec. for the foundation for the tower I intend to put up (AN Wireless 60' Light Duty) at this location (80mph winds) calls for close to 10 cu. yds. of 4000lb concrete.

How many bags of premixed concrete is that?

Too many! That's over 350 bags of concrete! Plus you won't get a consistant 4000 lb mix if you do it yourself.

The only reason to mix it yourself in that case is if you live on an island and can't ferry a concrete truck over. Go with Ready-Mix!
