According to Reade, moist excavated earth has a density of 90 pounds/cubic foot. That is about 1.215 U.S. ton/cubic yard.

17.9 ton / 1.215 ton/cubic yard = 14.73 cubic yards

Assuming U.S. short tons.

This will vary a lot with soil composition and water content, anywhere from 1.05 - 1.75 tons/ydł, but try 1.35 ton/ydł as a typical value, good quality topsoil at the light end, mixes of clay, sand, and gravel at the heavy end.
