The Crusher Run Gravel Calculator helps you determine the exact amount of gravel you need for your project. It considers both the area you're covering and the specific type of crusher run you're using, ensuring you have the right quantity for the job.This tool simplifies the process of estimating material requirements for various construction or landscaping projects involving gravel.

### Formula of Crusher Run Gravel Calculator

The formula used in the Crusher Run Gravel Calculator is as follows:

`CR = (L x W x D) x 1.25 / Density`

Where:

**CR**is the amount of crusher run need in tons.**L**is the length of the area in feet.**W**is the width of the area in feet.**D**is the depth of the area in feet.**Density**is the density of the specific crusher run in lbs/yd³, convert to tons/yd³ by divide by 2000.

### Table of General Terms

Type of Gravel | Density (lbs/yd³) | Density (tons/yd³) |
---|---|---|

Crusher Run | 2500 | 1.25 |

Pea Gravel | 2800 | 1.4 |

Washed Gravel | 3000 | 1.5 |

River Rock | 3200 | 1.6 |

Crushed Stone | 2700 | 1.35 |

### Example of Crusher Run Gravel Calculator

Suppose we have an area with the following dimensions:

- Length (L): 50 feet
- Width (W): 10 feet
- Depth (D): 0.5 feet

Let's assume the density of the specific crusher run is 2500 lbs/yd³. Using the formula provided, we can calculate the amount of crusher run needed:

`CR = (50 x 10 x 0.5) x 1.25 / (2500 / 2000) ≈ (250) x 1.25 / 1.25 = 250 tons`

So, for this particular area, approximately 250 tons of crusher run gravel would be require.

### Most Common FAQs

**Q: How do I use the Crusher Run Calculator?**

A: Simply enter the length, width, and depth of the area you want to cover with gravel into the respective fields of the calculator.

**Q: Can the Crusher Calculator be use for any type of gravel?**

A: The calculator is specifically design for crusher run. It can also be use for other types of gravel as long as you know the density. Simply adjust the density value accordingly in the calculation formula.
