We finished our day by adding fill dirt and topsoil around a new concrete patio we prepped a few months ago. The owner is going to plant the grass.
It took probaly 24 tons total, luckily the pile of topsoil was right down the road.

Everything looks good! I'm sure your area is like mine when it comes to being overloaded. I've never been stopped or ever seen anyone get stopped for being overloaded. With steel inserts there just isn't much left over to haul legally. I've been looking for dumps 1 1/2 ton and bigger for awhile now and I don't do nearly as much work as you. I do understand working with what you got. I bent the frame on my 1/2 ton this winter hauling wood on the farm. Judging by the 1.5 tons of rock I put on it yesterday I'd say I had 3 tons of wood not counting the insert. What does your fall leaf rig look like?

This is one of the smaller loads. I didn't fill up the tail gate on this one. All green oak and hickory stacked. Dump did great truck had to be in 4 wheel low to move. Over 200k and still rolling and worth every penny.

Yeah we are overloaded quite abit but we don't travel to far but I do plan on hopefully getting a 550 or biger dump sometime next year if I'm lucky, Did you ever think about getting a cab protector shield for your insert I noticed you didn't have one and hauling firewood I've broke a rear window before.How much do you sell your insert full of firewood for?

There isn't any money in firewood here unless you are setup for it where you just load logs and it cuts,splits, then on a conveyer into a big dump. I only cut for my own house. I'm pretty careful when loading and never broke any windows.

And the finished pictures, we just did a revamp, dug out old perenials and divided and replanted, added fabric, installed Techo block edging and added river rock.
