    I know you can purchase bags of cement, portland, and etc by the pallet, but how many bags to the pallet?

    .............Last i knew Sackrete was 40 sacks per pallet at 80 #'s per sack . Now , portland may also be 40 per pallet but it weighs 94 #'s per bag unless they've applied the "coffee" thing too a sack and decreased the weight too some lower number although I doubt it . , fordy... :shrug:

    My husband said that Portland cement is 35 bags to a pallet but it depends on what you are buying.
