Pole Weight Estimator

Wood Pole Weight Estimator

The Wood Pole Weight Estimator provides a way to determine the range of weights for a wood pole based on its species, class and length. Since the actual weight is dependent on the type of preservative used, the range of weights shown offers an estimate of the final weight.

The Weight Estimator below allows calculation of the range of weights for up to five different species, classes and lengths of poles in a shipment. The range of weights for each pole group and for the all of the groups specified are provided.

All weights are in pounds. There is also a notes section, in case you wish to print the weight estimate calculations.

An Excel-based version of the Wood Pole Weight Estimator is available for downloading in the Online Technical Library.
