We have millions of miles under our belt, and in a driveway application we are very skillful in spreading the gravel down your driveway, forward and in some cases even backwards. By tailgating the gravel out the back with the doors set for spreading at the right depth for which there is little work left for you. Usually a stiff garden rake is all that is needed, however in some cases like low over head Cable, Phone and Power lines, and tree limbs which cross over the driveway may prevent us from tailgating your load.
