Re: how much concrete mix is required

Welcome to the Bunnings Workshop community @PeteB8. It's sensational that you've joined us, and many thanks for your question about the number of concrete mix bags you'll need for your slab.

 

I apologise as I read your measurements incorrectly. I've now edited my response below to reflect the correct amount.

 

It's fantastic to see you've already received a helpful reply from @J-TAC. Here's another calculator from one of our suppliers using purely metric units. You'll require 14 x 20kg bags of concrete.

 

We look forward to hearing more about your concrete slab project. Please let us know if you have further questions or need assistance.

Re: how much concrete mix is required

Welcome to the Bunnings Workshop community @mike57. It's great to have you join us and many thanks for your question about mixing concrete.

The normal ratio for concrete is 1 part cement, 2 parts sand, and 3 parts gravel. So, for every bag of cement you'd need, you'll use two bags of sand and three bags of gravel.

 

What sort of project are you working on?

 

Please let us know if you need further assistance or have questions.
