Answer: 
Yes you can. You can pour this 12"+ thick if you needed to. The key to equipment pads is how much weight and how much vibration will there be, as that'll determine the thickness and the amount of reinforcing steel you need to use. It'd be wise to consult a structural engineer.

Answer: 
The primary reason they suggest 1 to 1.5 inches is because of the quick high strength component, pouring 6 inches is likely not a good idea.

Yes – you may use QUIKRETE® 5000 for a 6” thick slab. It can be used for any application requiring concrete in a minimum thickness of 1 1/2" (38 mm), such as slabs, footings, steps, columns, walls and patios.

Hi Anonymous,
A project like yours is way too big to use individual bags of concrete. It takes way to long to mix and a ton of work.
Concrete needs to be a continuous pour to be strong and stable. Using one bag at a time will take you weeks to complete and the finished product will not pass inspection.

Is this product Water-Proof once cured?

I am building a deck and want to use this product for setting posts in the ground. Trying to decide between setting posts in the ground and surrounding with concrete vs. pouring footings and setting metal bracket in concrete and attaching posts to bracket. In the ground provides more lateral stability and I have read that this type of concrete is water proof when cured, is that true?

QUIKRETE® 5000 Concrete Mix, like any other regular or high early strength concrete, is not water-proof when cured. Concrete in general is a porous material. Setting posts in concrete, as well as setting protected metal brackets in concrete are common practices that are used successfully. Any wood that is going to be set in concrete should be classified as “rot resistant wood”. Certain woods are naturally more rot resistant than other types, while some woods, sure as pine, must be treated to be considered rot resistant. Contact your local Home Depot store for assistance in determining what rot resistant wood is available in your area. Metal brackets set in concrete must be made of metal that is compatible with cement (an alkaline material), such as galvanized steel, or there is potential for corrosion. Be cautioned that aluminum, in particular, should be avoided as it reacts with alkaline material. Please consult with local building codes to ensure compliance. Read Less

Answer: 
Hello Shasta1,
This concrete has the same adverse effects on wood post as a lower strength concrete. For Deck it is advisable to use standoff metal post brackets that are set into the concrete, to eliminate concrete contact with your wooden post.
It is always a good idea to contact your local building department for your codes and standards.
Thanks for your inquiry.

Answer: 
Do not even consider doing a hand mix with that big of a job. Seriously - anything over 3/4 yd, order a redimix concrete truck for the job. It is plain a LOT more cost effective with a redi-mix truck. Also--remember the pour has to be 1 continuous monolith slab--neaning it all needs to be in place in 1.5 hrs time. So this limits how much you can mix using a mixer.

Generally speaking setting up, mixing, pouring /laying cement is labor intensive as there is a time component to take into account.

Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 10 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Quick and easy Fixed my private gravel road in a matter of minutes August 23, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good fast concrete Set quickly and well, but the package recommended too little water; it took us a while to hit the right amount. August 17, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by A great product for specific applications. When you need a high strength concrete in a short period of time - this product is the way to go. An example is replacing your garage apron, after 3 days you can easily drive your vehicle over it, where as for the same strength regular mix concrete it'd be 2.5 weeks to get the same strength. Another example is say a 4'x5' concrete pad for a stair landing coming off a wood deck. 2 days later the stair stringers can be placed without fear of chipping off a corner while installing the stairs. Also the working time is the same as regular concrete, so for a DIYer you'll need that time for leveling and finishing. But considering the extra cost compared to a regular concrete mix, this limits its use based on economics. Otherwise the product itself is the best out for a concrete mix. May 30, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by basement pad Use this product very frequently and always does a awesome job. Poured a 6 foot by 7 foot by 3 1/2 " pad in a basement for a washer and did perfectly. September 30, 2014
