Um, isn't a ton 2,000lbs. If you ordered 11 tons and were at 48,500 lbs on the scale, wouldn't you be carrying 12.25 tons?

I assume you must pay by the tonnage on the scale. Is that correct?

Can't believe you already have work. Amazing...

I didn't see it mentioned anywhere what the truck weighed


I know that when we used to buy stuff like 21AA, sand, etc, you 'measured' it by the bucket on the loader.

If you are buying by weight, not by yard, thne don't buy after a rainstorm

Need a quote for a truck load or three of crushed concrete or something cheap to fill in a two track leading to my place. Low area that gets real muddy when it rains.

Location is around 72 & M-18. About 6 miles from Lazurne. If you even go to that area?
