We have a 12 ton gravel install to do at a home in early spring. All of the gravel installs we've done over the years have been done on commercial properties and we just had the stone dumped in the parking lots and moved from there. My ? is, might the blacktopped driveway be damaged when the truck backs in to unload? The driveway is in good condtion. I can have the stone delivered in 4 ton increments but I'd rather have it brought in 2, 6 ton loads. The dump trucks for the 6 ton loads is bigger then the one for 4 ton loads. My gut tells me there proably wont be a problem but I dont want to take any chances. My other option is to have it dumped in the street but it makes moving it a longer way than in the driveway. The street is very wide with no curbs so the stone pile wont be blocking the street and be removed in one day. I realize we cant be sure if there will be a problem but I'd still appreciate your opinion and particularly if you've dumped tons on gravel on driveways in the past....thanks much.
