I've put ruts in thin asphalt with a tractor trailer 80k and that was on 5 axles, 70k on 3 axles is even more likely.

If the job calls for 25 yards, I would bring 2 tri-axle loads. River rock weighs less than 1.5 tons per yard. Tri-axles here haul between 18-20 tons, quads go to 23-24 average. If you put that kind of weight on asphalt it will leave ruts in the summer if they aren't careful. Like KSSS said, bring it early in the day. It's when they turn they do the most damage.

Wow is all I have to say. In va a tri is good for 15-18 depending on the truck the big centipedes can only haul 27 tons legally best time is early in the morning when the black top cold. Being a commercial building you shouldn't have a problem with the parking lot.

Well the rock is actually coming out of VA, so if the quarry hauls it, that's probably what I'm looking at. I called a few local companies and the secretaries didn't have a clue what their capacities were, all they could tell me was the hourly rate... between $95-$115 per hour.

Gcbailey do yo have a small dump ? You may have a marketing niche hauling with a lighter truck if the pavement is a big issue.

No... I wish. I've been contemplating a goose neck dump. We have 2, 1 ton duallys w/flat beds. I've also been thinking about something like a Topkick or that size. One of my guys has his CDL, so something bigger would work, but I'd personally like something I can haul our tractor in too.

Is it true that insurance on a dump is horrendous? I know everytime I've got a quote on our commercial policy one of the first things they ask "do you have a dump truck..."

Yeah we have a f450 dump. Shop around you should find a cheap policy for anything under a CDL I would think. You ever get down into Wytheville or the NRV ?

I'd shop around a few trucking company you should be able to get that price down. Most tri axles only bring in 75 an hour here the centipedes is where the money at. Theban run over a 100 an hour. Also a f450/550 size would be miserable moving that much tonage your looking at maybe 4 ton max. Best bet is find a owner operator and go from there never let the quary delver they make money on the stone and always over charge the delivery.
