I wanted to personally send you a note to tell you just how satisfied I am with the performance of your product. Please see the attached before and after photos. My driveway is about 130 feet long and it has not been maintained for years. We are only there on weekends, so the drive gets very little usage. The Driveway Groomer is well designed using high quality materials. The results speak for themselves.
Finally, a product bought off the internet that works like they said it would. Put together easy, built easy and all the holes matched up. Very rugged.

You all doin' alright up there in NH? This is Tom down in Mocksville NC. I bought one of your Driveway Groomers and I gotta tell you, after using it I'm happier than a puppy with two tails! It worked great. Our driveway hadn't had any maintenance in a lotta years, so it took some time to get 'er done. For a while there I was busier than a cat trying to cover poop on a marble floor. But in the end it came out great and I'm so happy with the results Im thinking' of hiring somebody to help me enjoy it!
Great design, for a bunch of yankees… ;-)

Hey Ya'll -
My husband and I bought your Driveway Groomer a few weeks back. After getting quotes of $1000 to fix our severely worn gravel drive we thought we'd give it a try. Honestly, we were doubtful that this was gonna be worth the money.
We were impressed with how fast it got here. My husband spent a couple of hours putting it together, and right away we could tell that a lot of time and engineering went in to designing this thing. And the parts! Very impressed with how sturdy and durable each piece is!
When he had it all together we hooked it to our truck and made the first pass up our 1/10mile driveway. You could tell right away that it was making a difference! Two hours later nearly all the ruts and rough spots are gone and we can get our cars out the driveway without feeling as though we are in a Baja offroad event! SOOOO impressed!
Just wanted you to know you have another pair of satisfied customers! We are telling everyone we know about how great your product is and hope to send some business your way!
Thanks for everything!
I was 'just that close' to buying a DR grader ($1400) to work on my 1300 foot gravel road, when I stumbled upon your website. After much gnashing of teeth and pulling of hair, I decided to order your Junior model to pull behind my ATV.
Having used it only twice, I can only say - works better than advertised! Simple, effective, ruts are gone, potholes are fading fast. I couldn't be more pleased. My wife asked, "why are all those big rocks sitting in the potholes?". Simple. The grader Jr. dropped them there, and as I work the road more, finer material will fill in the gaps.
I was also quite surprised at how much gravel was laying in the weeds on either side of the road, and have probably saved the cost of 50 yards of gravel. It also does a fine job of scraping the weeds off the sides and the crown. Looks like a new road!
You have a superior product, and a very satisfied customer. I couldn't be more pleased!
Advice to new users: Go slow at first, lots of weight. I found 1 mph in 4WD on my ATV to be the most effective. Today, I upped the speed a bit, but keep it slow at first. This road last saw gravel 10 years ago, and little or no maintenance since. The 5/8 minus had all but dissappeared, but I'm pulling it off the shoulders, and don't need to re-gravel. Saved the cost of materials, and once the road is back where it should be, I think a couple of passes once a month should keep it looking new.
Feel free to publish this, others may benefit. Awesome product!
I setup and tried the junior groomer (and riser kit) which I just received. I was happy to find that I could use my 2-wheel 6.5hp tractor to drag the groomer. I did have to remove the blocks when going up the driveway (which is pretty steep) but it did function as advertisted and as I had hoped. I only need to add some weights to the wheels of the tractor and I'm sure that I will be able to pull the groomer with full weight.
As I was using the groomer, i realized that it works very well in picking up leaves and sticks which will be very handy, and I can foresee that it could work very well to prepare some ground for gardening and also could work to create trails though wooded areas.
Overall, I'm really pleased and find the groomer to be very well constructed and designed. Thank you.
Your driveway groomer works wonderful! I used it so much last year that I already wore out the blades. Still, this is by far the most economical way to maintain my driveway. I'm not complaining! Thank you for such an effective product!
Just wanted to say how much I enjoyed putting together and using my new Groomer Jr. Everything went great, product did exactly what you said.
I purchased my groomer in June. I have a 900 ft. drive, mostly pit run gravel. I used to hire a power grader twice an year to get the pot holes fixed. I have used your groomer about five times and have reestablished a crown and now the drive is the best it ever has been. Product is as advertised and I am pleased. I would like to paint the wear points on the groomer before winter. Do you have a paint color or color number I could match? Thanks, Kent
Thanks for that question. May I post your e-mail on the site with this answer so others can have the answer too? It is actually not paint. It is powder coat. But Allis Chalmers Orange from Rustoleum is almost a perfect match.
We are VERY pleased with our driveway groomer! Our lane has had no maintenance
for 2 years. My friends would not get together at my house because they
didn’t want to drive their cars up my lane (600-700 ft). It was in very
bad shape, so it took quite a few hours to get it looking good again, but what
a difference!! We probably won’t need to add any gravel; maybe one
load, but not 2or 3 like we thought. It was so rough, it beat up the concrete
blocks pretty badly, but I don’t mind going to get new ones to do the drive
to and in front of our barn. What I especially like is that I can keep
it maintained w/o any added costs!! I will surely recommend it to my friends
with gravel lanes and driveways. It was worth the wait!
We got the groomer on Friday, and started working
on the driveway Friday night. It had gotten really bad with
time. We ran it over the driveway a couple times and what an
improvement. We went over it again Sunday and are very pleased
with the results. We were getting ruts and bumps in the driveway
that looked like speed bumps, and on a 450 ft long driveway
it was a bear to rake. Yes, even I took a turn raking it and
blistered both hands in the process.
We had been trying to figure out what we were
going to do long term with the driveway since my dad was no
longer able to grade it with his tractor and we did not have
access to a tractor. This is going to be great, we are now
able to be self sufficient and handle this ourselves. We were
extremely impressed with what a great job it did.
Thanks for answering my questions last week.
I appreciate your help (and my hands appreciate it too)!!
"FANTASTIC UNIT!! Only one problem.........It is
kinda addicting. I kept telling the wife . Just one more
pass ....just one more pass.... lol This thing not only filled
the holes in drive but at same time I was able to pull rock
into places that didnt have rock current creating a large
area to part. Cant wait till tomorrow when there is more
daylight!!!" -Roger, Illinois
"I received the Groomer and it works great! My 600 plus
foot driveway looks terrific without buying a new load
of Gravel". -Joe, Wisconsin
" I used it for 1-1/2 hours and 99% of the ruts are
gone" -Tom, Virginia
" The driveway looks much, much better" -Caroline,
"I regret not writing
you prior to this about how much I like the driveway groomer.
It is a wonderful product and has exceeded my expectations.
I have found it easy to use and very effective. It is very
well designed and strongly built. I am still learning all
of the different ways to use it in certain situations.
However, from the first time that I used it I made a significant
improvement in the appearance and utility of my driveway.
I also found you to be very helpful when I had a question
during assembly. I think that it is a wonderful product
and I would recommend it to anyone with a gravel driveway."
