  • Bank Cubic Yard = ? tons

    If there are 1.15 bank cubic yards in a loose cubic yard, and 1.5 tons in a loose cubic yard, how many tons are in bank cubic yard?

    I believe the first two figures must be reversed. The bank cubic yard is "as is" in the ground. When you dig it up, the volume will increase, so there would be more losse cubic yards.

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

      I am trying to get to tons. You are correct that there are more tons in a bank cubic yard.

        If 1.15 bank cy = 1.0 loose cy = 1.5 tons,

        then 1.15 bank cy = 1.5 tons, or 1.0 bank cy = 1.5/1.15 tons = 1.304 tons

          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, itís 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

            Also, never mix your Cut and Fill quantities.
