    you can get roughly 8 yards of mulch as far as the weight it will be pretty heavy
    I pull a 12 foot single wheel trailer with 4 yards it does fine nothing fancy either...
    and approximately one yard of mulch will cover 324 sq feet at 1 inch deep, and 162 sq feet at 2 inches... hope that helps.

    Haha, seriously. I was hauling a bunch of mulch this week and it was significantly heavier than average!! Even the new semi-load -that I was first into- was wet. The guy even grinds it a final time before it's delivered to the nursery! Still wet.

    I had 4 yards in the back of my f-550 and 5 yards in my dump trailer and it was a load! If it were a dry 9 yards, it would've been no sweat.

    the best people to ask this question is whoever you're getting the mulch from. They work with the product, and load it, so they know weight questions.
