Yes, it's no different - mechanically - than any gas snow blower.  The auger spins, it throws stuff.  Word of caution though - the scrape blade design on the EGO is very close to the pavement, so it is likely that - if your gravel isn't compacted well - you may catch and drag every single little crevice.  YMMV - give it a try!

Agreed.  The scraper will try to pick things up as you push.  If your driveway is super flat it might work.
