weight of bag mulch

Picked up a pallet of 75 bags of mulch today. It is the red cypress mulch. This was put on my Isuzu NPR. How mulch does this stuff weight? It is also wet so I am sure this can add weight. Anyway it seems very heavy on the truck. I think my truck has a gvw of 12000 lbs. I am also carrying a 1300lbs ztr with the mulch.

I believe 2 cu ft bags weight around 20-25. So, 3 cu ft bags weigh around 30-35.

The cypress mulch is lighter than hard wood. I would say 20ish for a 3cu ft

I do know that cypress will hold more water than hard wood, so they could be about the same wet
