Default Re: Slab question...

What about a concrete pumper truck? My entire pool and surrounding patio was all done by a pumper from the street, I too, didn't have room for any heavy equipment to get to the back. The entire pool and all grading done with a bobcat. The cost is only slightly more than a standard concrete truck, you have to pay the labor of the 2nd man operating the end of the hose.
I have been down the road of mixing all of the concrete by hand for an oven, I won't ever make such a huge mistake to save a few bucks. 55 bags in 3 hrs damn near killed me, seriously.

I'm an original NE Ohio boy so I know your soil conditions well. Your latest idea seems to be spot on, just enough overkill with the extra slab thickness that you should have NO worries. I have never been a fan of the floating slabs in areas of heavy compacted clay soil. Frost heave can jack up an oven several inches, who knows what kind of cracking it will cause to a dome oven.

I don't want to run a hose 100+ feet across my new pacers and pool area.
