Dirt Off-haul Calculator

We’re excited to unveil our Dirt Volume and Truckload Calculator! Designed with the needs of truckers, excavators, and contractors in mind, this calculator is your go-to resource for accurately estimating the volume of dirt for any project and the number of truckloads required for transportation. Whether you’re planning a large-scale excavation or a minor landscaping job, our calculator streamlines your workload, saving you time and enhancing efficiency.

How It Works:

Our user-friendly calculator is simple to use. Just follow these steps:

  1. Enter the Area Dimensions: Input the length and width of the area where dirt needs to be moved, in feet.
  2. Choose Depth Units: Select the depth of the dirt in either feet or inches from the dropdown menu.
  3. Select Dirt State: Indicate whether the dirt is already in a pile or if it needs to be excavated. For excavation projects, our calculator automatically applies an expansion multiplier of 1.35 to account for the increase in volume.
  4. Optional Truckload Calculation: For hauling purposes, choose a truck type from our dropdown list, including options like 10 Wheelers, End Dumps, Belly Dumps, and more, each with their specific capacities. If you have a price per truckload, input this to calculate the total transportation cost.
  5. Get Your Results: Hit ‘Calculate’ to receive the total cubic yards of dirt and, if selected, the number of truckloads required and the total cost for moving the dirt.
