    only one issue i can see. after the box bladeing, you don't show the bomberload of gravel being delivered to top off the gravel coating.

    Maybe it's just the clay soil around here, but every couple years we have to add more gravel, or it gets sunk into the ground, and skinning the driveway like you would leave us with LAWN :-9

    I have the same problem as you, and I do buy gravel about every 3 years. But, the boxblade actually makes the gravel last longer. It's not merely scraping the gravel off the top. If it was, then the boxblade would overflow. It's actually putting the gravel back down just as fast as it's scraping it up. No gravel is lost in the process, and by boxblading every month or so, my driveway is always nice and smooth. Thanks for the comment!
