Pros: easy to use clear instructions, quick set time and save alot of time
Cons: absolutely none at all!
" Postcrete is an excellent product with clear instructiions, very easy to use and does exactly what it says on the tin!
Made a mistake of using another product, Kelkay fix-a-post quick set concrete from a local DIY and what a nightmare. I was told by the sales assistance it's very similar to Postcrete, setting time is 15 minutes.
Followed the instuctions and it never set at all. Waited 2 days and I was able to pull the whole fence post out! The concrete mixture for some reason was like soil and I had to dig it all out!
The reason I didn't go to Wickes for a bag of Postcrete, the nearest Wickes is over 10 miles away
I ended up going to Wickes for a bag of excellent Postcrete and the job is now done.
Don't bother with any other brand as Postcrete is the best. "

Pros: excellent setting time, quick & easy to use, goes rock hard when fully set
Cons: quite expensive (but worth it in my opinion)
" Crikey... how did I not find this product sooner. It is a little expensive but it is a pleasure to use. Third fil hole with water and pour it in until powder just above surface. Sprinke a bit of water on the top, check post vertical with spirity level and job done.
This mix sets so quickly ensure everything you need is to hand before pouring it in. If you are fully prepared it sets sufficiently before your eyes in not more than 5 minutes that by the time you have checked the post is level you can walk away and start the next one.
I will definitely be buying this product again. "

Pros: easy to use
" When using the fill hole with water method needed a helper. When I had to do a couple of posts on my own decided to experiment with post in - dry mix straight out of the bag and tamp in to level position then wet with watering can. This worked great as well and meant I could get on with the posts myself - note this was spring and the soil is pretty damp - dont know if it would set as well if the surrounding soil was dry. "

Pros: quick, good price, minimal mess, no mixer to clean out
" Pour it in, add water and wait a few minutes. Idiot proof. No point even thinking about self mixing as to use quickcem you save a bare minimal. This product is perfect for the job of fitting fence posts. "

Pros: real fast setting
Cons: mixing needs more care than described
" Great stuff - except mixing as described left large chunks un-wetted (which is bound to crumble apart). Mix as you fill the hole with much smaller quantities of water & cement - and you can get a proper 'puden' all thru the cast. A helper is really useful (as the stuff goes off so fast). "

Pros: right amount for single post, bags are weatherproof, 20kg is manageable
" Very useful product. One bag to one post. it is worth shuttering the post hole before using the postcrete as there is only 20kg per bag. Use cardboard for temporary shuttering - it bio-degrades. If you have had to do some serious excavating to get the old posts out you can end up with a large hole to fill and would need several bags of postcrete unless you build shuttering. New post in virgin ground - easy! "
