    I demoed a house with my 5 ton and used 20 yard boxes due to power lines and trees. The roll-off guys said I got more in them and less dirt.

    That is the sign of a good demo operator.

    You want to chew up the material as much as you can, so then you can pack it tight.

    Helps to have a big excavator with more power to chew it faster, but a lot of it is up to the skill of the operator.

    Sounds like you really know what you are doing!!!

    Congrats
