Use an online calculator like this one,

Concrete Pad Calculator

or this one

Concrete Calculator - How Many Bags of Concrete and more | Cement Calculator | Concrete Estimator | Sakrete

and you get 2.7 cubic feet of concrete for a 4'x4'x2" pad, which requires 9 40lb. bags of concrete, which does not include the water you will add.


Who knows, maybe you guys down under use a different type of concrete?

No, it's just that we work in metric. Density 2300 kgs/m3 volume 72 L (120 x120 x 5 cm)
Weight = 165.6 kgs which = 356 lbs ( I was simply doubling the lbs to kgs which is not quite accurate)

In any case a slab like this is too heavy for the application when added to to oven and stand weight.
