Description

Serious professionals need a serious push melter. That's why we created the BIG A 10 gallon direct fire push melter to be a standard in quality for the serious professional.

Direct fire push melters go by many names, but the product is the same: It heats rubber to fill cracks and you walk behind it to apply and band the crack.

So what makes the BIG A 10 Gallon Crack Melter better than the rest? We don't skimp on quality. We fully understand how hard contractors can be on their equipment and we make sure to build products that can stand up to the abuse. Designed with 14 gauge steel and 1/4" wheels, the BigA melter can take a beating and keeps on working.

The BIG A 10 Gallon melter comes standard with hand agitation for the rubber kettle, along with a temperature gauge to make sure the melter temp is perfect. Our melters also come standard with a "wind guard" to ensure that even in windy conditions, your flame never goes out. It also comes standard with a propane regulator, hose and burner that can handle up to 50,000 BTU's.

One other feature of the BIG A melters that you won't find anywhere else, is a heat deflective shield to evenly disperse the heat. Other units on the market shoot the flame at the front of the unit which only heats the bottom front portion of the push melter. We've taken one extra step to deflect as much heat as possible to the sides of the unit, to create a much more even heat flow. In our experience, this also reduces the heat to use time by a few minutes, allowing you to fill cracks sooner.

This product is a step up from our Economy Melter and a little bit smaller than our BIG A 15 Gallon melter. You have options to choose from to meet your needs and as always, if you have questions then feel free to call +1(800) 689-2098

Frequently Asked Questions

How long does it take to melt rubber in a direct fire melter?

The answer to this question has a few variables that makes it difficult to give a direct answer. The one consistent answer we can give is that you can generally "begin using" the melter within 25 - 35 minutes of firing it up from a cold start.

The two biggest variables to consider are outside temperature and wind. The colder or windier it is, the longer it will take to melt rubber. The size of the melter and amount of rubber will also be factors. Just make sure you maintain the melter temperature at the recommended temperature (usually 375ºF - 400ºF) and always keep a new block of rubber on the already melted rubber to maintain best performance. Exceeding the rubbers melting temperature can burn the rubber and alter its properties. Double check your rubber instructions for proper operating temperatures.

Without going into a lot of detail about the process, it generally takes between 1 - 2.5 hours depending on melter size and volume of rubber to fully melt the blocks from a cold start. This is true on pretty much any direct fire melter regardless of brand and design. The thing to note though, is that you can most certainly use the melter before the blocks of rubber have fully melted.

How do you clean a direct fire melter?

Short Answer: You Don't - Direct fire melters generally don't need to be emptied or cleaned between use. If you're on the job and only use half of the material, simply shut the burner off and allow the remaining rubber to cool back to a solid state. The next time you need to use the melter, ignite the burner and allow the existing rubber to re-melt. On the push melters, you'll find that the wheels will build up rubber as you roll over filled cracks and this can become quite annoying. Simply grab a plumbers torch (sold at any hardware store) and burn off any rubber that has accumulated. This same method can be used anywhere on the melter where you feel it needs minor cleanup.
