Hi,

As wood usually floats, it's SG must be less than 1.

A gallon of water weighs 10lbs. There are 6.25gallons to a cubic foot, so a cubic foot of water weighs 62.5 lbs.

A cubic centimetre of water weighs one gram, therefore a cubic metre of water weighs 1,000,000,000 grams, or 1,000,000 kgs .... which suggest that my sums are wrong.  :stars

So, until somebody puts me right, I will assume that a cubic metre of water weights 1000grams. AKA 1 tonne.

Working backwards from that, it seems that 1 cubic millimetre of water weighs 1 gram.  :stars

I think it safe to simply assume that a cubic yard weigh less than a ton.

602

Confusion up front between cubic centimetres and cubic millimetres I suspect.

There're 100cm in a m so there're 100*100*100 = 1,000,000cc in a cu m. For water @ 1g/cc that's 1,000,000gm = 1000kg = 1tonne.

There're 27cu ft in a cu yd so a cu yd of water weighs 1687.5lb or 0t 15cwt 0qtr 7lb 8oz

E&OE!

Volume size , without resorting to lot tables and a slide rule the simple answer is about2.5 cubic metres.

I had a 10’ trailer full with high sides, appprox 5 cu metres for £250.
Last time it was £150 for the landy full so done ok!

Maybe another answer could be: "Not a lot unless it's been customised."   :tiphat

Did Wood & Pickett ever do a series? They had a go at Range Rovers.
