    I have to do an estimate for a job and they want this Fendt Keystone block used. Its like 8 inches thick 16 inches wide in the front and 14 inches wide in the back. Heavy ******** too. Wondering if anyone has ever worked with these. They run like 10 bucks a block. I am trying to figure out how many I can lay in a day to figure out my labor cost. Any advice be appreciated.

    We use a very similar product. Aside from base prep and first course installation. A three man crew can put down about 500 block a day with backfill and compaction. The base course is what eats up the time. Make sure you knock all of the lips off the base course. It makes it easier to level.
