Likewise, people ask, how much does a 2 by 4 weigh?

The **weight** of a **2**-inch by **4**-inch lumber board depends on its length and the type of wood from which it is made. A green-lumber **2-by-4** with a length of 8 feet **weighs** 13 pounds. A green-lumber **2-by-4** with a length of 12 feet **weighs** 20 pounds. A pressure-treated **2-by-4** that is 8 feet long **weighs** 17 pounds.

Also Know, how much weight can a 2x4 hold horizontally? If there is no strong wind, a 2x4 measuring at least 8 feet can support at least 1,000 **pounds** vertically. Such calculations would hold if, for instance, the load is square. However, it is highly advisable not to push the 2x4 material up to its limit.
