A cubic yard holds 14 wheelbarrow loads for a 2-cubic-foot wheelbarrow and nine wheelbarrow loads for a 3-cubic-foot wheelbarrow. The shallow basin of the smaller wheelbarrow is more prevalent, whereas the larger version is more common. To attain the maximum capacity, both wheelbarrows must have a crest.
A dump truck full of material is about 18 cubic yards, which is equal to 252 smaller wheelbarrow loads and 162 bigger wheelbarrow loads.
A cubic yard of topsoil weighs roughly 1.3 tonnes, but a truckload of dirt can weigh up to 20 tonnes. One wheelbarrow load of topsoil weighs roughly 290 pounds, whereas two cubic feet weighs about 185 pounds.
