Forum rules
Dear forum visitors,

Our forum has been available for many years. In September 2014 we decided to switch it to read-only mode. Month after month we saw less posts with questions and answers from real people and more spam posts. We were spending more and more resources cleaning the spam until there were less them 1 legitimate message per 100 spam posts. Then we decided it's time to stop.

All the posts in the forum will be available and searchable. We understand there are a lot of useful information and we aren't going to remove anything. As for the new questions, you can always ask them on FaceBook page

Thank you for being with us and sorry for any inconveniences this could caused.

1 cubic meter = 35.3 cubic feet

1 cubic meter of earth, loam, dry, excavated weighs 1.249 metric tons or 1249 kgs or 1249 / 35.3 = 35.4 kgs per cubic foot, or in this example, 28.26 cubic feet of dry loam = 1 Metric Ton
Earth, moist, excavated 1442 kgs = 28.3294 cuft = 1 Metric Ton
Earth, wet, excavated 1602 kgs = 22.0350 cuft = 1 MT
Earth, dense 2002 kgs = 17.6324 cuft = 1 MT
Earth, soft loose mud 1730 kgs = 20.4046 cuft = 1 MT
Earth, packed 1522 kgs = 23.1932 cuft = 1 MT
