    What is the largest and heaviest truck filled with mulch that could drive on a brick paver driveway without the risk of rutting the pavers or somehow damaging them?

    Anybody been in this situation?

    If the pavers were installed as they should be for a driveway they should support the weight of just about any truck. If they weren't, all bets are off.

    Like he said built right no worries. We have driven tri-axles on some of ours, but we know how they were installed. Beyond that not much else!!

    It all depends ofn the pattern thickness and base material. They use pavers over ashalt in large ports to hold containers they are extemley tolerant to these conditions so if they are done right you can do what ever you want. If the are to ashto specs you will be ok
