    Yes, per block. They are heavy as hell, but work great for a bin(notched so they will lock together). I can no longer use the property for storage, so that is why I need to get rid of them. To clarify, these are 2 feet x 2 feet x 6 feet.

    I kinda figured that most people would know what kind of blocks are used for a salt bin on a snow removal website...

    I don't believe these should be used for balast.

    I wouldn't reccomend a 2X2X6 for ballast. I have used a 2X2X4 for ballast on a f-350 stake body. But even that was pushing it.

    just from my own experience you will need atleast a 580 Case Loader/Backhoe to load and unload them. and all of this is to be done off of the front of the machine not with the backhoe part.

    No I check it look fine

    plus my 93 F350 used to have 6,000 pounds box for 197,000 miles it didn't break but I remove box and put regular bed.

    Make clear that my F350 is cab chassis and JmKr02's trucks is cab chassis that can hold more. If I have regular F350 I wouldn't put that block.

    I've seen a Cat 272C lift those blocks 5 high. But they had about 4 counterweights on each side. That must be hell on the front end. By the way Crete you are ballsier than i am because i hate doing it with a backhoe, forget about a skid steer...
