It transports easily with ball or pintle hitch capabilities. Heavy-duty paddles mix the concrete to a uniform consistency. This concrete mixer can fit up to two bags of concrete.

## How much cement is in a mixer?

For foundations, a mix of **1 part cement to 3 parts sand to 6 parts aggregates** can be used. Measure around half of the cement, sand and aggregates (for a concrete mix only) you’re going to mix. Using half now will prevent the mix from drying out before you get chance to use all of it – you can mix the other half later.

## How long does it take to mix 2 bags of concrete in a mixer?

Turn the mixer on and add the dry mix into the mixer. Allow the concrete to mix for about a minute and then add the remaining water as necessary. Mix the concrete for **about 3-5 minutes**, until a uniform, workable consistency is achieved. If additional water is needed, add small amounts of water sparingly.

## How many bags of cement do I need for 1 cubic meter?

A. One cubic meter of concrete is equal to 1.308 cubic yards of concrete. If there are 5 1/2 bags of cement in 1 cubic yard of concrete, there would be **7.2 bags** in 1 cubic meter of concrete. These are the 94 pound bags of portland cement or 42.64 kg bags of cement.

## What is the strongest concrete mix ratio?

A strong concrete mix would be something like **1:3:5** (Cement, Sand, Coarse Gravel). In this case, both the sand and gravel are the aggregate. In pre-mix concrete, the aggregate is already mixed with the cement.

## Which is stronger cement or concrete?

Is cement stronger than concrete? **Cement is not stronger than concrete**. On its own, in fact, cement is prone to cracking. When combined with aggregate materials and water and allowed to harden, however, cement—now concrete—is extraordinarily strong.

## How do I figure out how many bags of concrete I need?

For concrete, the formula for volume is as follows: length x width x thickness. To determine how many bags of concrete you will need, **divide the total cubic yards needed by the yield**. Use the following yields per each bag size: 40 pound bag yields .011 cubic yards.

## How do you mix 60 lbs of concrete?

You need **a half gallon or up to 4 pints (1.7 L) of water** for a 60-pound bag of concrete. That works out to about a pint for every 15 pounds of concrete. It is better to start with the minimum amount, and only add small measured amounts if needed until you reach a paste like consistency that will form stiff peaks.

## How many bags of concrete do I need for 2 yards?

If you’re using 50lb bags of concrete, you’ll need **72 bags** to make a yard. If you’re using 60lb bags of concrete, you’ll need 60 bags to make a yard. If you’re using 80lb bags of concrete, you’ll need 45 bags to make a yard.
