I ripped out the old wrap-around deck steps today, because they were installed (by a "professional builder) with the stair stringers right on (in) the ground. No concrete, blocks, or even a patio paver under them. So they rotted out. OK, old steps gone.
I'm trying to decide if I should set new stringers on deck blocks, solid concrete blocks, or dig out a full length footer, and pour concrete. The problem is I can't get a concrete truck anywhere near where I need the concrete, so wondering how well it may go, to move about 1.5 yards of concrete from the road, to the back of the house, and actually get it there.
How many trips with the 61" bucket on my JD4100? Probably can't carry more than half a bucket load at a time, and can it be successfully dumped it into the dug out footers?
Anyone here ever done it? Another option would be to rent a mixer, and mix 50 80 lb bags, on-site. Not looking forward to that, but...
What you say?
