    What breed of truck etc. A single axle dump your probably looking atleast 15,000lbs.

    With a single axle dump usually a 6 yard load of gravel is a legal load.

    OK, thanks. That's a little more than I thought.

    My diesel Kodiak with 13' contractor box runs 15,600 empty. I can't remember what my old single axle was empty.
