Herein, how much does a 2 by 4 weigh?
The weight of a 2-inch by 4-inch lumber board depends on its length and the type of wood from which it is made. A green-lumber 2-by-4 with a length of 8 feet weighs 13 pounds. A green-lumber 2-by-4 with a length of 12 feet weighs 20 pounds. A pressure-treated 2-by-4 that is 8 feet long weighs 17 pounds.
Similarly, how much does a 2x6 weight per foot? The weight of a 2-by-6-inch piece of wood varies based on the type of lumber and the moisture content of the lumber. On average, however, it weighs 2 pounds per foot.
Also question is, how much does a treated 2x4x8 weigh?
A kiln dried 2x4x8 weighs in on the lighter end at around 9 lbs while the pressure treated 2×4 weighs in closer to the 17 lb range.
How much does a 16 ft 2x4 weight?
