How much sod can my half-ton truck carry?
Unless you have a truck from the 1960’s or older, “half-ton” does not accurately describe hauling capacity. Today’s half-ton pickups are capable of hauling more than 1000 pounds (1/2 ton). We have successfully loaded many half-ton trucks with one pallet (approximately 2000-2300 pounds depending on water weight). However, we do not recommend carrying MORE than 1 pallet in your half-ton truck.
IMPORTANT: We DO recommend checking with your truck’s manufacturer (Chevrolet, Ford, GMC…) or your owner’s manual for your truck’s exact hauling specifications.
