1 cubic yard of farm compost or topsoil weighs approx. 1 ton
truck capacities: most 1/2 ton pickup trucks and short bed pickup
trucks have a capacity to hold 1.5 cubic yards but most don't have the
weight capacity to safely haul more than 1 cubic yard.
3/4 and 1 ton pickup trucks have the capacity to hold up to 2 cubic yards.
