Pro Tip: Make Heavy Concrete Bags Easier to Carry

Separating a bag of concrete in two with rebar | Construction Pro Tips

Working with bagged concrete can be messy, hard work. One way to make those heavy concrete bags a little more manageable is to split them in half with this simple trick. First, lay a length of rebar on the ground. Next, lay the bag of concrete on top of the rebar so that half of the bag is on either side of the bar. Grab a utility knife and make a long slit across the face of the bag, right above the spot where the rebar is laying. Then. simply lift the rebar up from the ground. Now just tear or cut the seam left over by the bag, leaving behind two separate bags of concrete that will be much easier to handle. To see this tip in action, watch the video below.
