Calculating your aggregate needs
Small businesses and individual consumers can calculate their aggregate requirements by using the general formula for volume (Height x Length x Width). Then multiply the volume by 100 pounds if volume in cubic feet or by 2700 pounds if volume is in cubic yards. Then divide by 2000 to convert to tons. This will provide an approximate projection of material requirements.
Example
Insert Length, Height, and Width of area to be filled in the following table. Double click the mouse on the cell and insert your figures. If measured in feet insert in the blue cells and if in yards in the light brown. Measurements in fractions are to be inserted to two decimal places of the full measurement. Truck loads are calculated at 15 Tons each.
Use the calculator below to estimate the truck loads needed for your job:
