Enter the length, width, and depth of the area to be covered into the calculator to determine the amount of crusher run needed.

## Crusher Run Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the amount of crusher run needed for a project:

CR = (L * W * D * 1.25) / 2000

Variables:

- CR is the amount of crusher run needed (in tons)
- L is the length of the area to be covered (in feet)
- W is the width of the area to be covered (in feet)
- D is the depth of the crusher run layer (in inches)

To calculate the amount of crusher run needed, multiply the length, width, and depth of the area to be covered. Multiply the result by 1.25 to account for compaction. Divide the final result by 2000 to convert it to tons.

## What is a Crusher Run?

Crusher run, also known as crush and run, is a type of gravel that is commonly used in places where motor vehicles are often driven or parked. It is a mix of stone powder and small crushed stone, retaining the strength of the top layer of a driveway. The stones are 1/8 to dust in size and have jagged edges that allow the pieces to compact and lock together.

This makes it a perfect base for creating walkways, driveways, and patios. It is also used as a base material under highways, driveways, roads, and concrete. It is easy to handle and compact, making it a popular choice for construction projects.
