How many cords of wood can a dump truck hold?
200 cords of wood
I think not. A cord of wood is 4'x4'x8' = 128 cubic feet Dump truck amount depends on if they stack it or just toss it in. At best 3 cords...but usually 2 cords.
Dump trucks typically don't haul liquid commodities, unless you're thinking of snow removal operations where they'll be outfitted with prewet or calcium chloride tanks. Even with that in mind, you need to remember that there are many different sizes of dump truck out there. 15 cubic yards is "typical" for a tandem axle dump truck.
The number of cubic yards that quint axle end dump truck could hold depends on the relative weight of the soil. Generally, soil weighs 2,000 to 2,700 pounds per yard. Since the capacity on the rear axles may be as much as 50,000 pounds, about 20 to 20 yards of soil could be carried by this type of truck.
That depends on the dimension of the dump body. The dump body could hold 15 - 20 cubic yards of material, typically. As for what can legally be hauled, it depends on the commodity and weight of the commodity per cubic yard, as well as state laws pertaining to what weight limits they allow for a tri-axle.
Five, all told. The steer axle isn't included in the count, so a single axle with have two - a steer and a single drive axle, a tandem will have a steer axle and two drive axles, a tri-axle will be a tandem with an additional lift axle, a quad axle will have two additional lift axles, a quint will have three additional lift axles, and a centipede will have four additional lift axles.

Dump trucks come in many sizes and configurations. Additionally, vehicle weight laws vary greatly between countries. We would have to have some idea of what configuration and jurisdiction you had in mind. Configurations of dump trucks would include single axle, tandem axle, tandem axle with twin steer, tri-axle, quad axle, quint axle, centipede, tractor-trailer end dump, etc.
Typical commercial US dump trucks are double-axle dually setups carrying about 10 cubic yards of material, which is about 10 short tons for typical materials like gravel or soil. A big, heavy-duty triple-axle model might reach 15 tons. A single-axle model based on a passenger truck might only hold 3 tons. A side-dump semi trailer might hold 30 tons. Non-street legal ore transfer trucks hold up to 400 tons!
It can have anywhere from four (a small pickup with a dump body) to 22 or more (tractor and end dump trailer with lifting tag axles). For a straight truck in the US, the most wheels you'll get on a vehicle is a configuration which is known as a 'centipede' - it's a straight dump truck (10 wheels) with four lifting tag axles (8 more wheels), for a total of 18 wheels.
To give an example.... when you pave something such as a racetrack, you're at a very steep angle which would cause a dump truck to tip over once its bed was raised into the air. In many cases, the bed may not even have to be raised for this to happen. One method to allow dump trucks to dump into a paving machine on such surfaces is to have cranes hook to the beds and…
Depends on the size of the dump truck bed, however if you have a 20 cubic yard bed on the dump truck and you fill it up, you'll have 50 loads. 1000 divided by 20 equals 50. If your dump bed was 30 cubic yards, like mine is, there would be 33.3333 loads. This also depends on the weight of the material, as the more dense the material the more it will weigh and the…
