Default Cost of caliche???

How much is a truckload of caliche? I guess the average dump truck holds 15 yards, correct?

Thanks

it isn't the cost of the material it is the cost of the trucking that you need to be concerned about, where is your nearest pit?

We buy caliche by the yrd off of land owners to build locations to drill and repair roads..... 3.50 thru 5 dollars pr yd is avg out here but have seen it sell for 10. Most of our trucking is charged by the hour. 50 is avg pr hour for a bobtail and. 70 or so for. Belly dump. Hope tht helps

Around here, Hamilton co., it's goes for $6-$11 per yard depending on how it grades and aggregate size.

Rodeo. Where are you located. I work for a large aggregate company and probably have something close or know someone that does.

Are there places you can just drive up and buy a trailer or truck load of caliche like you would sand or gravel? I'd like to spread some in areas of our camp that get really muddy - I'll need to find a place around Abilene.
