The total amount of bags of concrete on a pallet will fluctuate between 30 and 64 depending on the size and weight of concrete bag mix you purchase.

The guide below will show you what I found when I checked a local concrete supply warehouse.

**SIZE OF BAGS**

50 lb. bags of concrete

60 lb. bags of concrete

80 lb. bags of concrete

**AMOUNT ON A PALLET**

64

56

42

Something I noticed when I was looking at all the different types of concrete bag mixes they had on pallets was the number of bags did change from pallet to pallet.

It looked like the store ordered the amount of bagged concrete mix depending on their inventory of that specific product and what they figured they needed for "extra" inventory.

If you need a certain amount of bags on a pallet, the store can "add to", or "take away from" the amount they have in stock.

When you take a look at __Quikrete's product guide__, it shows you how many 80 lb. bags of concrete mix they put on a pallet.

**For an 80 lb. bag, they normally put 42 bags on a pallet.**

The 60 lb. bags of concrete mix have 56 bags on a pallet and the 40 lb. bags have 80 on a pallet.

Quikrete sells their Fast Setting Concrete MIx and Quikrete 5000 High Early Strength Mix in 50 lb. bags.

The amount of **50 lb. bags that come on a pallet are 64** per pallet.

You'll have to check with your local store if you're looking for a specific number as I found some 50 lb. bags with only 52 on a pallet.

You have a choice of Regular concrete mix, Crack Resistant concrete mix, and Quikrete 5000 if you're looking for 60 lb. bags.

**The amount of 60 lb. bags on a pallet are 56.**

The number of bags of Sakrete Concrete MIx on a pallet will be very similar (or the same) as all the figures above for the same size bag.

Just because it's a different brand of concrete doesn't necessarily change the amount that's put on a pallet.

What could change the amount is how many bags the store orders and takes delivery of. Check your local store if you need an exact number.

The weight of a pallet of concrete will be calculated based on the size of the bag and how many bags are on the pallet.

SIZE OF THE BAG 80 LB. 60 LB. 50 LB. 40 LB. |
# BAGS ON THE PALLET 42 56 64 80 |
TOTAL WEIGHT OF PALLET 3,360 LB. 3,360 LB. 3,200 LB. 3,200 LB. |

This table will give you a general idea of what a pallet of concrete cost. It'll depend on where you purchase the pallet and the bulk price cost at your time of purchase.

Most of the bigger stores have a bulk price listed for each type of concrete mix and the minimum amount of bags you have to buy to get the bulk price.

TYPE OF CONCRETE Concrete MIx Concrete Mix Quikrete 5000 Crack Resistant Mix Fast Setting Mix |
BAG SIZE 60 lb. 80 lb. 50 lb. 60 lb. 50 lb. |
# BAGS ON PALLET 56 42 64 56 64 |
PALLET COST $ 179.20 $ 154.56 $ 336.00 $ 294.00 $ 315.52 |

That depends on where you live. The two most obvious places are Home Depot and Lowes but your local hardware store might be a better option.

If you need a question answered about which bagged concrete to use for your project, most likely your local hardware store will be better able to help you.

The person working there is usually more knowledgeable than at the big box stores and it's usually easier to get someone to help you. (At least that's my experience).
