patching small holes in concrete


what is the main difference between using the expensive patcher mix (~$15) vs. regular concrete mix ? holes like a ft by a ft.

I'm a bit confused. You've a 1' x 1' wide hole. The depth is "deeper than the concrete". What concrete? How thick is this concrete? When patched, what use will this patched area be for (support for building above, etc...)?

i wanted to move a sewer pipe by a foot. broke the concrete, cut wire mash, tore foam, dug out the gravel and dirt, got to the pipe, adjusted it.

but my question was whether i should use regular concrete (cheap) or patcher mortar (expensive and advertised for this kind of applications) ?
