Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by theProfessional Excellent product at affortable price
Excellent product at great price. I used this product to do a footing/base for a shed and it worked wonderfully very easy to use. I used a gallon of milk full of water to one bag of 80lbs. PERFECT MIX! i worked it smooth and got good result. So i decided to use it to concrete my patio. work it smooth, some color hardener and stamped. professional results!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by DanP Good product for small jobs
This is a good product for small jobs and difficult installations, such as pouring a footing for a pier in a crawl space under a house or setting a few fence posts. After about ten bags, its much cheaper to by cement, stone and sand separately, and mix it yourself. Large jobs over a yard, buy it ready mixed on a truck. Even with the delivery charges, its cheaper than the labor of mixing it by hand or in a mixer. Also, this concrete is not good for exterior flat work. The finish spalls off after a winter or two reveling the stones.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by thumper144 Not recommended for flatwork
Product works decent for footings & post mix but I would not recommend for anything visual like flatwork. I had to pour 2 seperate sections of a 16 by 16 pad & mowstrip on 2 different ocassions.. On both jobs one section turned out semi white (normal) after drying...the other dark-- dark gray not even close! same pallet & mixed exactly the same looks horrible! Keep it underground.

Most are stone little cement can hardly get flat surface, Quikrete is much better.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Redbeard Sakrete works fine.
I have never been disappointed with concrete from Sakrete. There is good "working time" between mixing and pouring into place yet still retains great strength. I have formed slabs 5' x 5' x 18" deep (without any rebar) and still no cracks - after 2 years. I will continue to use this product as long as it is available.

Obviously an 80 pound bag is heavy, but if you can lug these around it is my prefered choice when I have concrete projects at home.

The instructions on the bag where spot-on. It was easy to mix, The contents where well blended so having to use half a bag to finish the job was easy to. (I've used other brands where all the gravel was at one end of the bag). I pored this slab last year. We had a bad winter and the slab made it with no cracks.
I'm real happy with it and plan to get more for my next 2 projects.
