Cart Path Hump Removal

Click for Web Version

We all know how annoying the bumps are on our cart paths from the tree root encroachment.

They have really gotten bad the last three years.  The cost to remove the black top, gravel and roots with the installation of new gravel and blacktop was astronomical.  At my national conference and trade show I came across a company called Flat Paths.  They remove the above ground humps in a matter of minutes.

Here is a tree root behind 4 tee all the way over the cart path.

Here is the machine grinding down the black top and tree root.

It took about 3 minutes to smooth this one and to match the level on each side of the hump.

Just after, with debris all over.

A quick brush of the blacktop.

Still a crack in the blacktop but the hump is gone and super smooth.  We'll start adding cold patch to the really bad ones and we'll be trying a product called EZ Street crack filler soon.
