I have my 8X10 plastic shed on 9 8X16 cinder blocks, and have for over a year. It is plenty strong enough. For your use I wouldn't hesitate to use the precast shed blocks. Mine is on plain dirt, no footer at all and it never moves.

This is what I was trying to describe previously. With the exception of having some PT dimensional lumber (4x4) laid lengthwise between the blocks and framed floor support. Kind of like "skids"

The good thing is, your damn motor can't read. If it says oil on the container, it's pretty much OK to dump in there.... ED.

That photo was taken in October.
