Get PriceMixing concrete by hand is a bad idea unless you only have a tiny amount to do. Only very rarely will you be able to get the cement evenly distributed throughout the mix and if this is the case, then this leads to weak concrete. If, however, you have no choice but to mix by hand and you only need a small amount, then follow these steps:

Get PriceFor typical domestic use, 1 cubic metre of concrete at 3500 psi (25 MPa) can be readily created by mixing seven 50 kg bags of cement with 0.7 cubic metres of sand and 0.7 cubic metres of stone aggregate. Concrete of this strength is ideal for patio slabs, Learn More

Using a cement mixer - this is generally suitable where between about ¼m³ and 2m³ of concrete

Get PriceOne of the best concrete mix ratios is 1 part cement, 3 parts sand, and 3 parts aggregate, this will produce approximately a 3000 psi concrete mix. The strength of this mix ratio is good for most concrete slabs, footings, steps, and foundation walls.

Get Price18-07-2016 I need to mix 2.5 cubic meters of concrete and would appreciate any guide to how long this may take. There'll be two of us, one mixing and one laying, so it's the mixing time I'm after. Apparently the mixer has a 90 litre drum. The minimum time I've calculated to be 28 drums x 8 minutes = approx 3.75 hours.
