How Much Does A Lift Of Plywood Weigh?

Let's say 1/2" cdx. Or a better question- how many sheets of 1/2", 5/8", 3/4" are in a lift of ply?

Re: How Much Does A Lift Of Plywood Weigh?

I believe there are roughly 48 sheets in a lift of 1/2", depending on manufacture can be as much as 52, and one supplier does units of 75.

A sheet of 4x8 1/2" is about 50 pounds, so a lift/unit would weigh roughly 2400lbs. If you get a lift of 75 it would be closer to 3750lbs. All A-C.

I've never seen a lift/unit of 3/4 be anymore than 50.

Again, it depends on the manufacturer. A lift/unit of 4x8 HDO for forming I get 66 sheets a lift.
