How many cyds does a short bed chevy hold?

I'm having a debate with a guy who is trying to tell me he hauled 35cyds out of a property in 3 trips with only a short bed half ton chevy.

Isn't there a chart somewhere?

Short answer would be no, but I have seen some crazy things in the backs of trucks.

If it was what I like to call a circus load, ie loaded higher than the cab and swaying back and forth around turns and at stops, then maybe.

New body style chevy trucks come in 5'8", 6'5", and 8' beds. Using that fancy pvc frame that safeguard recommends, or loading standard full size stoves in back, you should figure 12 cyds max if you loaded 6 stoves, 2 high.

Several nationals that we dealt with considered a 16'x7' landscape trailer capable of hauling 25 cyds when full. If you tried to figure in more than that with one trailer, they would cut the invoice.

First off I'd ask for his load pics and second I'd go over the math with him.

If that doesn't work........ might be time to cut ties.

Professionals are people who can do their job when they don't feel like it.
Amateurs are people that can't do their job even when they do feel like it.

This is what I told him. I will post his load pics later y'all will get a chuckle. This was his first and last job for me. He talked a great game but lost something in delivery.

A full sized short bed is close enough to 36 sq. feet

or 1.33 cubic yard per foot high.

Wow. I had a longbed with plywood sides and could only fit 8-10 safely. . Guess he figured the more he had on each load, the more that would fall off on the way to the dumps and less money going towards dump fees... safeguard 101. Lol. People these days.

Going thru many debates as well and over a conference call w/NFR and my regional we all came up with 7cy in a full size pu w/side rails. Being a short bed my guess would be 5.5 max. But as I stated NFR will allow me 7 with my full size chevy.

Thats generous, I believe its around 3ish if level full with the bed rails.
Thats how a landfill counts it that charges by the yrd for incoming debris.

Here is what MCS states

Chevy/GMC Reg/Ext Cab, Std Bed
Chevy/GMC Reg/Ext Cab, Long Bed
Chevy/GMC Crew Cab, Short Bed
Toyota Tacoma
60.7 cubic ft = 2.25 cyd
75.5 cubic ft = 2.79 cyd
53.2 cubic ft = 1.97 cyd
73.5" x 56.7" x 18" = 1.61 cyd
3 squares of shingles2.5 squares of shingles/felt/decking1,000 SF of 5/8" Drywall1,100 SF of carpet or pad
4 squares of shingles3 squares of shingles/felt/decking1,200 SF of 5/8" Drywall1,400 SF of carpet or pad
2.5 squares of shingles2 squares of shingles/felt/decking800 SF of 5/8" Drywall1,000 SF of carpet or pad
2 squares of shingles1.5 squares of shingles/felt/decking700 SF of 5/8" Drywall800 SF of carpet or pad


My guess is they are not including side rails.
