A tandem dump truck holds approximately 8 m3 or 12 tonnes of material (varies by truck and material).
Raw material out of the pit, mainly for filling holes and providing a base for roads and driveways. There can be some larger rocks (i.e. 6-12 inches) mixed in.
- 9.5mm Crushed Sand
A coarse sand used for a variety of purposes such as bedding and for providing traction in winter. Drains easily and packs well.
- 10mm Screened Sand
This is the finest sand we offer. It is used for bedding but also for things like filling in gaps between interlocking stones/pavers.
- 19mm (3/4") Crushed Well Graded Base
Non decorative but very functional aggregate that compacts well and drains slowly. Often used for a final grade prior to laying down asphalt.
- 19mm (3/4") Crushed High Fines Surfacing
Similar to WGB in terms of aggregate size and compaction but with more fines. Popular uses include driveways and walking paths.
- 75mm (3") Crushed SGSB
Compactable road base used for general construction and road building. Looks similar to pit run but with anything larger than 3 inches crushed down.
- 12.5-25mm (1") Drain Rock
Self explanatory, used for drainage but also decorative uses as it has a washed appearance and does not have any fines. Doesn't compact.
- 38-50mm (2") Drain Rock
Also used for drainage but is larger in size. One use for this would be around a building foundation. Again, no compaction.
- 9.5mm-12.5mm Pea Gravel
Mainly a decorative/landscaping material but rounder in shape than drain rock. It is similar to playground gravel. Also used for exposed aggregate concrete work.
- Top Soil
Screened soil used for lawns and gardens.
