    Could someone please help me - I am new to the industry and was wondering how many acres you can cover with a single axel dump truck with a 10 ton load.

    10 ten on a single axle is a lot, make sure you the truck fram is in good shape. as far as coverage, nobody knows, it all depends on your customer's preferences and your current lot conditions. some customers like heavy coating, some like light, who knows...
