How much weight can a dump truck carry?

Answer

Large dump trucks can haul about 28,000 pounds of material per load, equal to about 14 tons. However, dump trucks vary greatly, and dump truck manufacturers produce a variety of models, each with a different capacity.

While large dump trucks can haul 28,000 pounds, most carry slightly less. Many smaller dump trucks can haul about 13,000 to 15,000 pounds. Dump trucks often weigh about the same amount as their load capacity. For example, a fully loaded dump truck carrying 14 tons of material usually weighs about 28 tons. Dump trucks with this type of capacity are usually about 25 feet long and over 11 feet high.
