Wondering what is the best method for ripping out an asphalt driveway. Little background: The driveway is ~220lf in length and approximately 13' in width. Then there is a parking pad about 1900sf. The driveway is on a steep incline and over the 220lf it makes about a 180 degree turn from the bottom of the hill to the top of the parking pad. Sorta like an backwards C. The driveway is in bad shape. There are huge potholes all over and in some spots its to the point that its crushed into tiny pebbles. I would say thickness is between 3 and 4 inches. So assuming 4 inches that would give me about 60 yards of ashpalt to recycle. FYI, I would guess there is a 30 foot height difference between parking pad and were the driveway enters the county road. So, my question is what is the best method to rip this out. I'm thinking a mini-x with a plow blade or a skid steer. Although I'm not sure how the skid is going to handle the slope...which is pretty significant. I'm assuming a mini-x with a thumb isn't going to help since the ashpalt is so brittle it will just fall apart. My thought was to have the combination of my dingo and a mini-x. Have a 30 yard concrete dumpster there for the morning and fill it. Then have that picked up and another dumpster dropped off the following day. FYI, I have a 14' dump trailer but I could only legally carry ~3 yards at a time. But if the number is slightly over 60 I wouldn't need another dumpster. Any opinions of this?
