Thumbs down Sorry I need concrete [No Solicitations Allowed]

I have tried everything to get away from concrete and found that the
info I received on these forums are correct and I need concrete.

So, I need to have a little 4 x 7 base build for a 900 lb generator. Do you think this is a do it yourself job or do I need a concrete genius?

If any of you live in xxxxxxxxxx, please contact me xxxxxxxxx & I will let you build this. Otherwise, besides a strong man and concrete what should I know to get this done properly. I need to know soon as the generator will be arriving and will be "dropped" somewhere at a cost of $350.00 so I don't want to move it twice.

Talk to your concrete provider. They will advise you on the type of concrete you need to pour. Also, since the pad will be outside, you might consider using "air entrained" concrete, which is less suceptible to the effects of temperature fluctuation.

The pad size seems small enough to avoid having to float, but if you do you can rent a bull float for about $10-12$ per day. Be sure to use a round over edger to round off the edges of the pad.

best wishes.
