  1. Can you drive a steel tread heavy equipment machinery on asphalt roads on the Big Island without plywood or rubber tires protecting the asphalt? If not what is the law

    1. Wes. I surf the big island most years and can tell you there is no way under the moon and the stars they will permit you to run steel treaded equipment on an single inch of asphalt on the big island.
