• A standard mixer truck has a capacity of 8 to 12 cubic yards or 5 to 9 cubic meters, which is between 32,000 and 48,000 pounds of freshly mixed concrete.

  • 3-23-2017 Let's run some numbers. A pickup with long bed will hold a little over a cubic yard. A cubic yard of concrete weighs two tons. Highways will tolerate 20 tons per axle. A cement truck has two axles, so the absolute limit is 40 tons, or 20 cubic yards. You can be sure they don't make a truck big enough to hold 20 LWB pickup loads, so the answer by Official Know-It-All is reasonable.
