My tractor is going to be delivered this week, so I'm getting my materials together for the ballast box.
Each small bag of Quikrete Portland is .5 cubic feet, so I'll need 10 of them to fill the box. Normal water ratio would be a bit over a gallon per cubic foot of material, so 5-6 total.
I'm a little puzzled as to how 470# of powder and 50# of water turns into 894# of mix (per the JD chart).
Am I missing something or do you add a LOT more water to pure Portland compared to concrete mix?
