Construction Simulator Bucket & Dumper Capacities

This is an updated, tiered list of all vehicles with bulk carry capacity based on the intial guide All Bucket/Dumper Capacities. The list is expanded to DLC vehicles from the brands JCB and SANY, Kramer is currently missing.

Methodology Notes

My company has full milestones on the test map and my character has maxed out skills.

All numbers in the list are the selling prices using the “EMPTY” function in the context menu.

Testing was done with soil, or with the respective material of the construction machine (asphalt, concrete). Capacities can only be compared between the same kind of material, though for asphalt and concrete, most machines tied.

For machines tested with soil, they will have different numbers with sand or gravel, since both have a different price per m³. The capacities still stay the same.

Capacities are also comparable between different vehicle types. So the largest excavator will take on average 11 full scoops of material to completely fill the dump bed of the largest dumper.

Flatbeds With Crane, Dumpers, Asphalt Dumpers, Asphalt Pavers, Concrete Mixers and Concrete Mixer Pumps have been filled using the “Fill” function in the context menu, then the materials sold like previously described.

The Hopper of Concrete Mixer Pumps and Concrete Pumps, as well as Concrete Buckets have been filled using a full concrete mixer and the difference in selling price was noted.

Excavators and Wheel Loaders have been filling the shovel on a working site and empty it into a dump truck. The test was done 3 times and the highest achieved selling price was noted.

Efficient Concrete Bucket Transportation

Updated Bucket & Dumper Capacities - DLC Vehicles Included (JCB, SANY)

By placing up to 14 large concrete buckets onto a WBUILDER HS7S trailer and filling them up with concrete at the concrete plant, you can transport up to 3.2 concrete mixer loads worth of concrete in one go.

Note that you have to use a concrete pump or a concrete mixer pump (recommended) to fill them up. Filling them under the concrete deposit spot is not possible. This is only relevant for those few construction jobs where the concrete pumps do not reach the highest spots, and if you prefer to play without the quick refill via functions menu.
