Depending upon your wheelbarrow size (i.e. 2 or 3 cubic feet per wheelbarrow load), it will take 9 to 14 full loads to equal 1 cubic yard. The chart below shows how many full wheelbarrow loads it takes to equal the specified number of cubic yards. A 2 cubic foot wheelbarrow typically has a shallow basin. A 3 cubic foot wheelbarrow is full sized and is the most commonly used wheelbarrow. The load on both the 2 and 3 cubic foot wheelbarrows must be crested to reach their respective capacities.
