The Gravel Doctor™ - Driveway Repair Made Easy

GO GREEN WITH THE GRAVEL DOCTOR®

With the ongoing awareness of the need to “go green”, more businesses are doing their part to reduce, reuse and recycle. THE GRAVEL DOCTOR® subscribes to the same principles of “green” technology by reducing the environmental impact of surface restoration. The rationale is explained below.

RECYCLING REDUCES ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT:

Consider this scenario: a 450 horsepower dump truck takes 1.5 hours to complete a roundtrip delivery of a load of gravel to a homeowner’s driveway. In total the truck uses approximately 675 horsepower to accomplish the service.  To complete a one-hour surface restoration to repair the driveway, THE GRAVEL DOCTOR® will use approximately 32 to 35 horsepower. Based on this scenario THE GRAVEL DOCTOR® used just 5% of the power required just to deliver the stone.

Now consider the energy requirements it takes to acquire that new stone from its original location, most likely from a remote rural location:

  • Clearing of trees……………………………………..500 horsepower
  • Drilling of rock………………………………………350 horsepower
  • Blasting to reduce rock size for crusher……………350 horsepower
  • Loading crushers and conveying 5 times…….……..3500 horsepower
  • Transporting rock to shipping dock……..………..500 horsepower
  • Shipping………………………………….……..……1000 horsepower
  • Stockpiling……………………………………..……500 horsepower
  • Loading……………………………………….……..500 horsepower
  • Final delivery….……………………………………..650 horsepower

TOTAL:                                                                            7700 horsepower

A New Load Of Rock Delivered To Your Driveway Would Ultimately Require 7700 Horsepower:

THE GRAVEL DOCTOR® Requires 0.0045% Of That Total To Complete Your Surface Restoration By Recycling Existing Gravel!

Now That’s GREEN TECHNOLOGY!
