driveway sealer

I read some previous posts about sealing a driveway but I didn't see the answer to my question. Is it better to use the sealer you buys in 5-gallon drums or to get a firm that sprays the sealer on the driveway? Is the type that is sprayed on too thin to be effective?

Spraying on the sealer doesn't do much more than color the asphalt unless the sealer is also worked in with a squeegee.

we spray - 2 thin coats are better than 1 - we get better material coverage & longer life of the sealcoat - & we're not dickin' around all day w/guys everywhere,,, that being said, we also use squeegees,,, IF its your own driveway, you can use squeegee & broome.

bulk sealer is better than 5gal pails BECAUSE the emulsion hasn't settled into its components,,, HOWEVER, if the avg h/o stirred the pails enough, that'd be the same mtl.
