Traditionally, an asphalt patch truck was a critical component of any asphalt patch crew. This is the machine that was used to carry all of the hot patch asphalt needed to properly perform pothole repairs and to carry all of the large and heavy pothole patching equipment. These days many companies are still using large asphalt trucks and big and heavy equipment.
This equipment does not take advantage of the old patch and therefore requires the use of a large amount of new patch to complete the job. The old method requires an expensive truck investment and the use of large amounts of fuel to operate it. It is not a financially sound plan or a green solution.
These days there are new and improved methods that do not require large trucks or big and inefficient asphalt patching equipment. Unfortunately, people learning how to repair potholes are often shown the old methods. They are even encouraged to buy the antiquated pothole patching equipment of the past.
Luckily, people looking into learning the pothole repair business do not have to follow the old methods or use the old equipment. Companies like ours are available to provide both equipment and training to anybody looking to repair potholes.
The new equipment uses infrared technology that quickly heats up the old asphalt and allows repair crews to make use of the old patch. This means that crews do not have to carry around as much asphalt as they did in the past and no longer need a huge gas guzzling vehicle to carry their asphalt around. The new solution is both financially sound and green.
New equipment also saves crews time and space. Crews no longer need to take up the entire road with large trucks. The crew can simply block off just enough space for them to get their job done. In addition to this, the new asphalt patching equipment will get a typical pothole fixed in less than a half hour. Why take two days to do a job that only takes twenty to thirty minutes?
