· difference between a typical 3000 PSI mix and a typical 4000 PSI mix is that there is approximately 100 pounds more of cementious material and approximately 85 pounds less sand in the 4000 pound mix. Cement is the sliding agent in concrete while sand is abrasive which therefore makes the 4000 pound mix pump easier.
