Repairing a Gravel Driveway with the Ventrac Power Rake


My name’s Aaron Graber, and today we are power
raking a gravel driveway. This driveway leads back to an auto repair
shop and towing operation, so they get a lot of traffic in and out and a lot of heavy traffic
as well from tow trucks. It’s also coming out of winter time, and the
freeze-thaw effect does not go well for driveways like this. The Ventrac Power Rake will be able to go
through here and renovate these areas. To deconstruct and re-level to not be so hard
on cars going in and out. After about an hour with the Ventrac Power
Rake, you can see there are no potholes left, and we were able to fracture the surface,
get underneath and really break apart all the gravel and loose stone around those potholes. This leveled everything back off and put everything
on the same plane. Aside from the potholes this driveway had,
there were a couple very low spots out by the road. That’s to be expected because as cars drive
in, they move that gravel up the driveway. With the Ventrac Power Rake, we were able
to level the whole thing off and move some of that gravel back to get those areas filled
in so the water can go away and it can be a smoother transition from the road to the
driveway. Long term, this will keep the driveway in
better condition and from further deteriorating as people drive on it.
