Yes, they are all adjustable. Loosen the hardware, Find something to use as a shim... a few paint can stirrers.. put them under the Scraper to lift it about 3/8" then tighten the hardware. See how that helps the stone throwing. Gravel driveways are tough for Blowers and Plows...It's best to actually leave snow on the driveway to pack down and form a Base. Then the next snow will be stone free.
Another thing you can use is 'cold planings', (that is what it is called in the UK) and is what they skim off the top of the road when they are resurfacing. You will find it in various locations. Ask your local Roads Department.
Or you could use your gravel as a base, have it rolled and then asphalted (tarmacked).
A wooden driveway gate needs to be supplemented with a steel frame to last since they will be opened much more frequently than an ordinary wood gate. The slide type gates will need the structural strength to resist the pulling of the chain. A swing gate, will be cantilevered since a wheel at the opposite end will trigger the obstruction reversing mechanism in the gate operator. This cantilevering over the long width of a driveway requires steel in the structure both to prevent sagging and to keep the gate looking good over time. Gaps and misalignment will occur naturally as the wood shrinks and expands in weather. The steel frame helps to hold everything together tightly.
We make our gates using wood cladding over a steel frame. If you like check out our link at the bottom for more information. Here are some projects we have completed.
there is a cap over the end of the axle, it snaps off. with the rear end jacked in the air remove the C-clip which you find under the cap. the wheels will then pull off. make sure you put them back on correctly, there is an inside and an outside. If you reverse it, you will rub a groove in the tire and it will go flat and have to be replaced and they cost more than car tires. And do not pull the wheel off in the lawn or in a gravel driveway. when the wheel comes off a small key will fall to the ground. you will need to re-install this key when you put it back together or the wheels will not move. if you lose the key into the grass or gravel you will have to go to a real hardware store or small engine repair shop to buy another.
85" is too short. It is part number 160855. It needs to be 1/2" X 95". Here is one shown and cross- referenced on Amazon.com. Post back if needed. We can give you tips on how to install. Here is the drive (transmission belt). http://tinyurl.com/3hn54ff
Hi! May i ask what are you planning to set up? If youre trying to put an aluminum gate on a metal post you will need a hand drill to do this. Please provide the following:
- Door hinges for aluminum, make sure that the hinges are strong enough to carry the gate
- Provide screw driver set for bolting the gate to the post
- You may need an open wrench for tightening the bolt
Hope this helps and good luck!
You may have a wheel bearing going out. There a gravel shield that sits real close to the brake rotors. If the bearing get excess play in it will allow the spindle to tilt and the rotor will rub on the gravel shield. Look for fine metal shavings by each wheel. Another possibility is you, or someone driving your vehicle, hit something on the road and bent one of the gravel shields so now it rubs on the rotor. But, being it gets worse when turning I'm betting on wheel bearing. If you see metal by one of the wheels, jack that wheel off the ground and see if you have noticable shake in the wheel, top to bottom.
