We poured the first part of our new pad for our extension today. 1st, it was freezing out. 2nd, I got suckered into doing it:D
Poured roughly a 1200sq ft area, will do the same next week and hopefully another the same size this summer. But I am absolutely WIPED out. The pour was a lot thicker than we originally though and was 5500psi so it was heavy heavy heavy.

When I worked for a glass company I was chosen to find a leak in the plumbing outside of the shop and it took me three days to dig through the concrete with nothing but a hammer drill and a sledge hammer... owner was too cheap to rent a damn a jack hammer. needless to say I was worn out for a week. So if this helps I feel your pain

Buster Paving - APAC.

Limited options where my shop is. I could have gone with 3000psi for under 70, but I need the strength and the ability to fend off cracks.
