asked in category: General Last Updated: 12th June, 2020# How much concrete can you get in a wheelbarrow?

**wheelbarrow**has a volume of about 6 cubic feet. Doing the math, 27 cubic feet per cubic yard divided by 6 cubic feet per

**wheelbarrow**equals 4.5

**wheelbarrows**per cubic yard. Of course, how

**you**are using the

**wheelbarrow**for your

**concrete**work

**will**vary.

Accordingly, how much concrete can you put in a wheelbarrow?

"**One** cubic yard of ready-mix yields nine contractor-size **wheelbarrows** of **concrete**. " "A construction **wheelbarrow** full of **concrete can** weigh nearly 400 pounds." AFAIK a contractor's **wheelbarrow** is roughly 6 Cu ft. Since your's appear to be **much** smaller, 11 trips seems too few.

Secondly, what is the capacity of a wheelbarrow? **Wheelbarrows** are available in a variety of volumes, typically from 2 cubic feet on up to much larger sizes such as 6 cubic feet for a contractor-grade **wheelbarrow**. A typical garden variety **wheelbarrow** with a deep basin holds approximately 3 cubic feet; the shallower ones typically hold 2 cubic feet.

Furthermore, how many wheelbarrows are in 1m3 of concrete?

One cubic metre of **concrete** weighs around 2.4 tonnes. That equates to about 25-30 **wheelbarrow** loads per **1m3**!

How heavy is a wheelbarrow full of concrete?

A construction **wheelbarrow full of concrete** can weigh nearly four hundred pounds.
