    OK yall, I'm on a roll now. I wonder if there's an estimator for #57 crush/run gravel and rip rap stones.
    Thanks again.

    when I want to find out how far gravel or rip rap will go I call the people that handle it. They got the formula's for you. Go to the people that deal with gravel and rip rap they'l give you your answers/

    Check what the quarry gives you compared to this..might not work for Rip-Rap.
    For 2" Depth:
    SqFt x .17 / 27 x 1.5 = Tons needed
    For 4" Depth:
    SqFt x .33 / 27 x 1.5 = Tons needed
