Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by TheBlake Junk. Might as well buy a bag of pea gravel.
Great for post holes. Absolute garbage for a slab. Read some bad reviews but figured it was worth a shot anyway. Poured 20 bags. Came time to finish it and was all rocks couldn't even attempt to float it. Had to dig back out the first inch before it set up. Go back to Home Depot and buy enough quickrete to pour back on top and finish the job.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Dave Will not ever use this product again
I have used this product in the past and I have had good luck with it, but the past few times we used it there was an excessive amount of agitate in it (too many rocks). Their quality control has gone downhill. Usually with pre mixed bags of any brand you have a few bad bags with too much agitate, but it usually isn't a problem when you combine it with a few good mixture bags. The last few times we have gotten pallets of bad mixtures to the point it cost me jobs. I spent more money on the product itself for better quality, and then had to double my cost on re pouring new concrete. As a professional small job contractor I do not recommend this product anymore. I am not that happy with quick Crete, but I have less problems with that product.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Brent Batch was good
I was worried about the reviews regarding bad batches with too much rock. I've gone through 40 bags the last couple days and all seemed well. The concrete made for pretty easy finish work.
Only issue I had which wasn't a manufacturer issue, is some of the bags got moist some time along the way.
Someone stated in another comment its not lightweight, but its obvious it is if you just look at the volume of an 80lb bag to an 80lb bag of another.

I love this stuff. This a fabulous product, and I would recommend it to anyone who mixes concrete by hand or mixer. Go get it Maximizer.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by red be carefull
have used this product in the pass, this time I got it from two different home depot and the bags were day and night ,first group was good but the second was full of mostly rocks and had to stop the project just to go to the store and get some cement to add to the mixture to finish the project , would not recommend this product because it is hard to know what you are going to get. had I not used this product for myself in the pass I would have read the reviews on inconsistence in the product but that's my fault, I purchased 30 bags this time but never again

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by paulsuds Wow ... not good! Hard to finish!
I used this for a 7' X 8' slab in the back yard for a shed. I've poured about a dozen slabs over the years and wanted to take advantage of the lower density of the product. All was good until I tried to finish it. It has fine gravel and my finishing tools kept dragging the gravel to the surface. I thought that maybe I used too much water, but followed the directions. It was about 70 degrees max outside, so I thought maybe I was trying to finish it too early. I waited, but no luck. It seemed like there wasn't enough cement to cover the rock. Maybe it was too wet and the water was bleeding to the surface and displacing the cement. I may have weaken the concrete with multiple finishing operations, but i wasn't worried since it's not load bearing and is rated at 5,000 psi. I am more worried about it powdering, crazing, or cracking. Finish is not good. only time will tell.
