How do I estimate boulder weights?
Boulder densities vary depending on the geological makeup. Therefore, it is hard to accurately predict the weight of the boulders without weighing them. However, as a general approximation, please use the following size and weight guide:
1′ x 1′ x 1′ = 165 lbs. = 0.08 tons
1′ x 1′ x 1.5′ = 248 lbs. = 0.12 tons
1′ x 2′ x 1.5′ = 495 lbs. = 0.25 tons
1.5′ x 2′ x 1.5′ = 743 lbs. = 0.37 tons
1.5′ x 2′ x 2′ = 990 lbs. = 0.51 tons
2′ x 2′ x 2′ = 1320 lbs. = 0.66 tons
2′ x 2′ x 2.5′ = 1650 lbs. = 0.85 tons
2′ x 2′ x 3′ = 1980 lbs. = 0.99 tons
2′ x 3′ x 2.5′ = 2475 lbs. = 1.24 tons
2′ x 3′ x 3′ = 2970 lbs. = 1.49 tons
2.5′ x 3′ x 2.5′ = 3094 lbs. = 1.55 tons
