Everything from barrowing the 2-5T of concrete depending on the job, to screeding, edging, and stippling. Definitely a workout, not sure if I could do it long term. Summer would definitely kill me!!

That's a killer! Yep, you definitely don't want to do concreting in summer... hot, concrete goes off too quickly so you're rushing/working harder to get it right....

When i was young, i tried a job being a roofing carpenter (started during the WA summer). It was f-ing hard work. I was busting my arse, and ended up puking my ring every other day from heat and exhaustion. Got about a week or 2 into it, and thought fuk that. Chucked it in and became an auto electrician instead.. Haha

Oh I found out yesterday that the numbers he was saying over the phone to the concrete supplier isn't weight, it's cubic meters!! :oops:

So I've been moving anything from 2.4 to 5 cubic meters of concrete with a wheelbarrow...and apparently one cubic meter of concrete weighs a little over 2 tonne... :shock:

:lol: Not a career for me!! I'm sure I'd get used to it eventually, but I don't think I want to find out if I can...
