Parked regeneration

Thanks for all the answers the reason I asked about regeneration on asphalt was we bought 2010 lonestar and owner manuel said do it on concrete or gravel not asphalt that made me wonder because all we see is blacktop hardly any concrete surfaces

Parked regeneration

On a Funny Note, my Cascadia has the short exhaust pipe that dumps down inbetween the Drives, makes one heck of a steam cloud when it's -25 below or colder. Somewhere I heard/read of a story where a Trooper who pulled a Driver over to write him up for drive brakes burning up, Driver pointed to the Shorty exhaust pipe down between the drives, Trooper waved see ya

thanks

Parked regeneration

Hauling sod

Hi Toby, I don't haul sod on a regular basis, but I do get the odd load of sod from over in Canada and have to bring it back to Michigan to deliver to the local garden centers. Always right up there on the weight......we weigh out before we leave their yard.

I've met a few guys that do nothing else but haul sod and they seem quite happy doing the job.....its a regular run for them.
