Jetpatcher™ | Incredible upgrade of existing fleet into pothole repair machines
Jetpatcher has been tackling the pothole epidemic in the Scottish Borders since 2009, and now a brand-new machine is on its way.
The Jetpatcher was designed to fit into their existing fleet, using a Mercedes ‘Econic’ vehicle and is fully demountable. This has resulted in considerable cost savings, versatility and the utilisation of an existing vehicle in their fleet.
This particular Jetpatcher has a greater capacity than ‘normal’ machines and no hydraulics, which delivers massive savings on purchase costs relative to rivals. Also, the costs of servicing and components are also significantly reduced over its life cycle.
As well as existing overseas territories, Jetpatcher Worldwide is seeing massive growth into new and existing markets. This comes down to the dynamic design and build solutions that the Rugby based business offers.
This is the 3rd machine in recent months that has been supplied to local authorities using a demountable system.
Here are some Jetpatcher facts you may not know.
• A repair can be completed in 60 seconds
• Under the new British Standards repairs are classified as ‘Permanent’
• Savings are approx. 60% more than traditional methods
• A single jetpatcher can repair over 400 defects a day
Jetpatcher’s ability to upgrade existing vehicles in a fleet during times of austerity is an innovative approach that councils across the UK and globally are snapping up.
