Proper Asphalt Crackfilling equipment selection will defiantly be a very important factor in the process of equipment selection.
You will need to use special consideration and and understand the differences in crackfilling equipment, performance and user friendly features as well as overall cost.
There really is a fine line between buying a piece of equipment that will take several jobs to see the ROI, and purchasing Asphalt Crack Filling equipment that will perform just as well and possibly produce a profit on the very first job!
We receive many calls from property owners, maintenance company's and do-it-your-selfers that may not need to purchase asphalt crack filling equipment.
They may simply need our Cold Crack Filler, because they will not be performing asphalt crack filling often enough to justify the purchase of asphalt crack filling equipment such as a melting kettle.
In these cases it may be better to purchase products that allow the user to apply the material without the need for specialized equipment.

These materials are specifically designed to provide quick installation and long-term durability for everything from high traffic roadways to parking decks, to your driveway at home and can be applied without the need for special crack filling equipment.
On the other hand, most of our customers are professional asphalt crackfilling company's and they will need the very best asphalt crack filling equipment they can find, being durable and able to handle crack filling jobs almost daily.

These professionals need to cover several hundred or thousand feet of asphalt crack per day and usually need a melting kettle and applicator.

You should use careful consideration when purchasing equipment for filling asphalt cracks because you can spend a lot more money than necessary.
We've talked to asphalt crackfilling professionals who have spent thousands of dollars on equipment for filling asphalt cracks when they could have spent several hundred or thousand dollars less, achieving the same results.
The bottom line is you need a piece of equipment to apply crackfiller quickly and efficiently but you don't need to spend $8,000 to $15,000 doing it!
Bigger and more expensive is not always better!
