The ascendancy of ignorance we use is .6" cubic, or 2/3 cubic feet. Through 27 cubic feet to the cubic yard, you"re looking in ~ 40.5 - 45 bags come the yard, depending on if you usage .6 or .667.

A 94# bag is 1 cubic foot.Using the 3 halfs dominance you would need 3 94# or 3.525 80# bags to gain 2 cubic feet.You"ll need 4.87238895 bags but I"d acquire 5 simply to be safe.
i dislike to recognize this yet i simply poured a hadicap ramp and used quik crete.the ramp to be 48"x60"x4".we offered 22 bags to pour this ramp.

As far as i know, tkle is exact that 94# is one cubic foot (actually i kinda assumed it to be 96#).Anyway, presuming the to be exactly 33.5" X 34" X 5" = 5695 cu. In. Which equates to 3.295 cu. Ft.3.295 cu. Ft. X 94# = 309.73#309.73# separated by 80# = 3.87 bagsAgain, - - 5 bags is PLENTY.Won"t ache ya" to obtain 6 though, - - you"ll just be eatin" one bag, - - (remember come chase with water :laughing The reasonable of a bag being .6 cu. Yd. Might be based on a 60# bag.80# bag based on 94# per cu.ft. = .85 cu.ft.60# bag based on 94# per cu.ft. = .63 cu.ft.Maybe the calculator has actually "motivation", - - over-allowing for your waste (and feasible over-dig?) and their profits.
Seems come me the this is to compare apples and oranges. That 94 lb bag is a bag that portland cement--no aggregate. That one cubic foot have to be the volumn of dry powder in the bag. The 40, 60. 80 lb bags the calculator is working v are fast crete--aggregate and also portland mixed in just add water proportions. Many concrete the comes in a van is 4, or 5. And sometimes even 6 sack mix- in other words that plenty of 94lb bags per cubic garden (27 cubic feet) of mix.JVC
Don"t return "em to me; us don"t take them back. One 80# bag of continuous concrete mix is .66 cubic foot. That is the size of the bag, and also has nothing to carry out with the weight. A pallet that 80# Concrete mix (42 bags) is a CuYd (27.72) of concrete for functions of guesstimating.A cubic foot of kind I portland weighs 94#An almost right (a tad less) cubic foot of stonework Cement weighs 70# (N) or 75# (S).A five gallon bucket filled to the optimal ring is 1 CuFt.
