This stuff is junk. It says foot traffic in 24 hours and vehicle traffic in 72 hours.
I mixed one 80 lb. bag with 4 qts. water. The little project took 1 and half bags. I mixed it well. I have done quite a bit of concrete work over the past 30 years. After 48 hours this stuff fell apart .removing the forms.I did a small slab "1 ft 6 inch by 2ft.3 inches 3 and 1 half inches deep. when it started falling apart removing the forms I grabed it with my bare hands and it crumbled. This Stuff should not be sold to anyone.I wasted my time and we all know time is money.If I was still a young kid I would be tempted to return it to home depot through their window.Do you at home depot test this stuff? It has no features or performance.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by SenorCitizen Not enough protland, or just poor mixing at factory?
I have purchased more than 50 bags of this product, and the quality varies all over the place, but definitely tends towards "poor" rather than fair or good.
Some bags have a higher proportion of gravel than others, and a few bags have had a bunch of unmilled fiberglass (big masses of fiberglass thread, rather than short fibers). Some bags have had a bunch of (carbon black? finish additive?) that floated to the surface of the mix when mixed with water, most do not.
Recently, the bags have always been lacking in Portland cement. When mixed, rather than looking the typical slight greenish-gray of a good mix, the slurry looks "dirty" (brownish), and is nigh unto impossible to finish properly unless you add Portland to the mix. I have been doing that (adding Portland), but since Lowe's has started maintaining their stock better, I started using their crack-resistant concrete, and haven't run into the same quality issues as of yet.
I don't know if Sakrete is "shorting" the more expensive ingredients (Portland, and additives) or just not mixing each batch enough, but I'm not finding any bags that appear to be "better than average", so my guess would be the former, rather than the latter.

Was using to cast a piece; concrete simply did not have enough cement in the mix. Cured piece easily crumbles in my fingers. I've mixed a lot of bags of cement; have never had a single problem. Have even had bags cure in foggy weather with no mixing. Maybe it was a bad batch, but it cost me a lot of labor and money to redo my project.
