    It looks like you need 98 80-pound bags of concrete for this project. I like this site for calculating concrete volumes: http://www.concretenetwork.com/concrete/howmuch/calculator.htm

    A bit over 2 yards. With a truck this would be considered a very short load as most trucks carry about 8-10 yards and you get charged extra for short loads. Price wise buying by the bag will be cheaper than bringing in a truck...You might look into some rental outfits in your area. Years ago I was able to get a yard mixed and poured into a small "trailer" at a rental place. It was a good go between mixing a ton of bags and paying for a full truck ( or partial truck)
