How much does one yard of soil weigh?
Depends on how wet it is, but I'd say that sounds about right
just looked at a couple of my old scale tickets, and 2500 looks more like the average weight for ~ 1 yard of soil
Alright thanks, just curious thats all..
I saw in the bobcat www site, that the mt52 weighs about 1 yard of soil as well lol..
in my trench rescue class they used 3000# as the standard weight for dirt/soil.....
I put a yard into a ranger one time and the rear end was to the ground. If you got a 250 or comparable it'll be fine.
A yard of soil will even squat a 1 ton truck. In cases like that you're better off just having it delivered than to compromise your under rated truck.
I'd say if the soil is dry it weighs between 2500 lbs and 2000 lbs... 3000 lbs is high....
Here is a post that I asked this question before:
