Frequently Bought Together

Product Overview

This product's specially manufactured aggregate material and higher volume of cement yields a mix that gives you 67% more coverage than regular concrete mix. Maximizer Concrete Mix is a pre-blended, ready to use mixture of concrete sand, expanded shale and clay aggregates and Portland cement packaged in a convenient bag. Maximizer Concrete Mix can be used anywhere commercial ready mixed concrete is used, and it can also be used where smaller quantities are needed or hard to reach areas that prevent a ready mix truck from delivering.

  • One 80 lb. bag of maximizer yields 1 cu. ft. while an 80 lb. bag of regular concrete yields 0.6 cu. ft.
  • May be used in standard concrete mix applications
  • 5,500 psi in this product compared to 3,500 psi of regular concrete
  • Outstanding strength of 5500 psi, making it the strongest all-purpose concrete mix

Answer: 
It depend on the depth (thickness). multiply 100 sq ft by inches/12. Example:
For 2 inches thick: 100 sq ft X 2/12" = 16.6 cubic ft. = 17 bags
for 3 inches thick: 100 sq ft X 3/12" = 25 cubic ft = 25 bags
for 4 inches thick: 100 sq ft X 4/12" = 33.3 cubic ft = 34 bags

Answer: 
most pours are 4" think, that is 1/3 of a foot, so divide square feet by 3 and you get cubic feet - A bag of Maximizer is one cubic foot - 100/3=33.3 = 34 bags of Maximizer (or 56 bags of regular 80# mix)

Answer: 
If the specs are correct and one 80lb bag covers 1 cubic foot of space, then it would take you 8.3 bags to cover 100 sq/ft to a depth of 1 inch. Hope this helps.

we are looking to pour light weight concrete on top of a plywood sub floor in a condo repair. The thickness of the concrete which we removed was approx. 1 1/2 inches. What is the recommended thickness when using Maximizer? What would you recommend as a additive for extra strength if needed? What would you recommend to put down on the plywood substrait?

Answer: 
Minimum 2” thick. This is not a light weigh product either. Sounds like a Self Leveler may work better for your application, or Rapid Set - Cement All, as it can go down to a feather edge.

Customer Reviews

80 lb. Concrete Mix is rated 3.1 out of 5 by 22.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from 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 out of 5 by from Way too much aggregate! As previous reviewer stated, should have just bought pea gravel. Putting in a small pad for a generator to save money on the installation. This was the hardest premix to work that I have ever used. You cannot finish the surface. There is so much aggregate that its surface texture is very similar to a pea gravel pad. Had the generator installation company done a job of this quality, I would have had them start over! Will NEVER use this product again.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Hard to work. This used to be made by TXI, it had pea gravel in it and was a very good mix. Now it's made by sakrete and they use crushed rock. It's very difficult to mix, it dries very fast because the crushed rock is very porous and sucks up all the moisture in the mix. Go with the quikrete yellow bags or white if you need more strength.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Minimizer is more like it. Followed the instructions and it only yielded 0.7 cu ft per bag-not 1.0 as stated. Like other reviews, I could not get a good finish. All this for a premium price. They should rename it to the "Minimizer", minimum value for the dollar.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from 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.

Used this concrete mix to patch and replace a less than 3 ft. length of curb. Mixed it manually, which was a bit of a workout for me. It's setting rather fast, so you need to work quickly. I stomped it with a 2x4" to make sure there were no voids. I did not find a high amount of crushed rock (pea gravel) like some other reviews are suggesting. Got a smooth finish on all surfaces. Rather pleased with the result. However, next time I am going to use a product that comes at half the price.
