Default Amazing road machine!

Yesterday I had Mark from Midtex Mulching come out and work on our road to our cabin. We have a half of mile road to our cabin that for 17 years have had to put up with. It was so bumpy you could barely go 5 mph without losing your teeth or damaging a kidney! This machine just eats the rocks and leaves a flat gravel base. I couldn't believe how fast the transformation happened. He was there from 10-6 and only cost me $1400! It would have taken probably 30 loads of road base to cover up all those rocks.

Watched a county worker running a machine on an old county road that had a chip seal applied and maybe regular asphalt under that. The potholes had become gigantic and would wreak havoc on your vehickeís suspension and alignment. They used an old industrial tractor with a PTO reclaimer/asphalt miller on the back. Totally smoothed out all of that bumpy broken road. Not really sure if they ran a packer over it later or not. But it seemed to be the answer for a lower cost method of fixing that particular road that doesnít see high traffic.

Looks nice.

Hope it gets crowned & packed good before the next rain, so it doesn't wash-out.

I wish Terrell County and Val Verde County had one of those to fix the road into the lease. 18 miles at sometimes a crawl is the longest hour and a half in my life that I'll never get back.

Even if it does wash out you could have him come back out and give it another once over. Probably would be faster than the first time and might be cheaper if he doesn't have to do the entire road over.

Those FAE Rock Crushers are cool. Especially the big ones that you need more than a skid steer to run. They have some units that can eat boulders/rock the size of watermelons.

That's a great value for the money you spent. I was aware of large machines for commercial use, but didn't know they had attachments this small for private work. I'm surprised he could do it for that price. Lots of maintenance on that machine ! And yes, if your road is 12' wide and a half mile long, 30/32 loads of rock. You made out like bandit !
