I drive a fairly large concrete mixer that has a nominal max payload of 11 cubic yards that is roughly 44,000 lbs.

Anything heavier requires additional axles, they have mixers that are on trailers but they are very very large and are rarely used in most cities.
About the only way to get that kind of weight on a truck is a set of turnpike doubles. Or a multiple axle lowboy trailer.

I’ve lived in Brooklyn most of my life, I unfortunately have no idea what you’re talking about.

so judging by the truck, less the wood, could you guestimate the actual load of fertilizer? Either way, less IEDs.
