How much mulch will fit in a Dodge 3500 bed?

Edit: I don't mean as far as weight, but volume rather. I'm not worried about it not being able to haul the load :D

a full size 8ft. bed will hold 2yrds. of mulch you may get 2 1/2 to 3 depending on how well it packs and if you have a built sides on it. hope that helps a little bit.

Ok. Awesome. I was actually thinking between 2 and 2 1/2, so I was right on par :).

Thanks.

you could prolly get 3 yards in there if you manually pack the corners down and then tarp it all.

Yeah I know..I just was too lazy to bother getting the exact dimensions..So I posted a thread. Couldn't find it from searching.

I need 3.5 - 4 yards..I'll just make two trips.

If you have a dually some landscape supply places may not like loading your truck with a skid steer.

Put a tarp in the bed so when you shovel out enough you can roll the tarp and the rest will come out.

I bought three yards earlier this week. It all fit in an 8ft. bed with no toolbox. I used a loadhandler. a loadhandler will save you about 95% of the work.

3 yards, have them pack it down with the loader bucket then tarp it.

3 pretty easy in my Dodge 2500 8ft bed. Push the mulch around between each scoop to smooth it out.
