That's the way I operate,,,,,,use muscle until my brain kicks in and I figure out a better way,,,,for the 1st section of the slab, I did load up 5000 lbs into my van,,,,,with many trips and much gas,,,,,,unloaded that 5000 lbs into my garage,,,,,,,loaded that 5000 lbs into the mixer,,,,,,shoveled and spread that 5000 over my rebar and steel mesh,,,,,,,,so that turned into 20,000 lbs right there. I am going to have a better system to lift those bags with an aluminum grate using my engine hoist and a wheel barrel body that Vanish gave me last time I was up there to flow the concrete out further,,,,,,,,,,so for $79, if they want to drive up 25 miles into the mountains and BRING me 169 more bags, that's a better plan,,,,,gas is still over $4 here,,,,,,,now lets see if their forklift can climb my driveway and get under my oak tree, or I will have 168 bags of concrete blocking my driveway. I have a Buddy to help me,,,,,,He adds the water, turns on the machine, mixes it and dumps it,,,,,,,,and he does a good job of floating the surface and getting a nice finish on it.......
