    Apparently there is a frac job nearby,as there has been a non-stop flow of these boys running thru town the last few days. We used to be quite a busy little hub a few years ago and sand trucks were as common as tumbleweeds around here. Slowed down considerably and this is the first time I am seeing a constant flow of the "boxes". Does a box hold the same cubic feet and/or #'s a tradional air can does?

    I don't know but I doubt it if they run legal. The boxes and chassis are pretty heavy.

    Whose boxes?

    My heavy truck with a Sandbox chassis/box was 36k. I never had a facility load me more than 78k lbs.

    Thats what i typically end up around. But a pneumatic with tractor tares out more like 26k. And those mostly hit the scale at 79.5k loaded.

    They eat product weight in trade for convenient storage amd lowered detention.
