Benefits:

Pothole Killer Truck

Technology

One-man operated truck that fills, flattens, and seals potholes in 30-90 seconds per pothole.

The operator points the patchers delivery nozzle at the pothole and sprays a mixture of asphalt emulsion and stone to fill the pothole which is then topped off by a barrier coating of material to prevent tracking while the repair sets up.

Benefits:

  • Longer, lasting pothole fillers (lasts 1-3 years)
  • Quick and efficient process (30-90 seconds per pothole compared to 2-10 minutes in DOT’s current pothole repair process)
  • Reduced labor cost (only one worker compared to the 4 man team in DOT’s current pothole repair process)
