    My guess is 2 ton. Probably way to high but that is my guess. I was looking to see if it was sagging but it looks pretty level to me.

    I would say about 4 ton. Salt is always hard to judge and usually is heavier than you think. Just ask the customer how much to do their lot and and they think it will take about 2-3 hundred to do it just right>:rolleyes:

    Guess, didn't you give us the before and after weights? said itw as 3.5 tons?

    I would say thats baiscally looks like it. 2 tons fits into our 8 foot pickup box, easily, so looking at the heap, I would say you have 3 to 4 yards, so 3.5 tons sounds right.

    that dump insert lift it ok? what kinf of dump insert

    I have to agree with snoflo 1-1.5 yds.now way you can haul more than two in that box now if you had a small dump than you could get 3-5 yds.
