    Thanks DD.

    It'll be (possibly a 12 x 15 x 100mm meter slab). Any recommendations?

    It all turned up in one hit.
    Order what your team can handle in one hour.

    Very good point. It'll be up to the crew to let us know how much they can handle. I'm in no rush....

    i realise u haven't made any claims as to amounts, but a 5mtr truck,?. check me out , i make it 1.8 mtes. given your measurements. a tip u may be aware of, soak the site before you pour, if you dont the soil lumps will float up thro the concreat mix, after a few years or sooner, depending on wear and tear, this is a must do.

    That's right Thet. Plus a bunch more. Around 50 by the time we've finished. Still planning though, so who knows?

    Word of warning from my experience of ordering and using Ready mix here..

    Depending on your usage and your requirements..
    They will batch every load different, so if you require a certain slump, then it is imperative that the batch man that is at the plant understand this and that the driver does not pour in a bunch of extra water to suit himself at the site either.

    TIP
    If you are located in a busy area like Pattaya and your concrete spec and delivery time can be flexible get yourself on the drivers dump list. Every day companies like CPAC are left with surplus concrete at large projects. This can range from half a cube to 10 cubes and the driver has to dump it. The load is already paid for so he will look for around 500 Baht/Cube or face having to unload at a dump point.

    Price for concrete varies a little between companies and all are negotiable if your project requires a large quantity. CPAC for example has reps who will call at your site to make sure you are ordering the right spec and provide all the tech support you need. They also have the power to adjust price and guarantee delivery times.

    I checked out CPAC ready mix delivered and it worked out 35% dearer than I could do it if I just mixed it myself.

    The point about managable quantity comes into play as with a team of 8 of us we can mix and spread it constantly. So that's the way I'm going down.

    My project is a drive way so doing it in nicely sized packets is the way to go. I'd prefer to be having buffer zones for expansion every 6 m or so poured with hot tar but expect there's no such thing here.

    There'll be a gap for expansion provided I'm at hand every time to wodge a piece of planking down.

    The point being ..... don't take your eye off them for a minute.

    Fcuk that, done a fair bit of hand mixing in my time and it is bloody hard graft. Rather than save a few baht would go the ready mix way.
