Assuming the numbers are reversed by the 1.15 factor is right, it would be 1.725 tons per banked cubic yard.

Someone is confused
Bank Cubic Card (BCY) is smaller than Loose Cubic Yard (LCY).
BCY is the dirt in the ground. This dirt is compact, hard, and solid.
When dug up, it’s mass increases by 30%.
So we multiply BCY by 1.3
This give us LCY, loose being the key word here. Loose meaning the dirt is no longer compacted.
BCY < LCY
1 BCY = 1.3 LCY
5 BCY = 6.5 LCY
20 BCY = 26 LCY
