Question weight of crusher run

I need 12 cubic feet of crusher run for a stair landing at the bottom of my deck. How much would 12 cubic feet of crusher run weigh? There's a place that sells it at a flat rate based on whatever you can get in your truck bed. MUCH cheaper than buying bags at the big box stores. I have a small Ford Ranger - 1/2 ton.

Thanks.

I would guess this weighs something in the neighborhood of a ton per yard so you'd be looking at a load approaching half a ton.

I'm sure others will be along shortly who can provide better numbers than this.

I don't know for sure, but the one landscape yard I was at seemed to use 2500 lbs per yard. It certainly isn't the same for all sizes of stone or crusher run, but I think it's close. Definitely more than 2000 per yard. Based on 2500 lbs, 12 cu ft will weigh just over 1100.

I love being able to buy bulk with my truck. Everything is far cheaper than buying it in bags. I couldn't imagine trying to mulch my planting beds with bags.
