This truck can hold approximately 60 cubic yards of earth. Once the truck is loaded, it moves to another location at the site and dumps its haul so a bull dozer can work it into a fill area.
The walls of our 84-inch diameter pipes are specially designed to support an enormous amount of weight. The pipes will eventually be covered by 65 feet of fill dirt.
