How does Jetpatcher™ machinery work?
Jetpatcher™ machines use high-velocity air to prepare the area of the defect and to deliver emulsion and aggregate to seal, fill and compact the repair. This results in a quality repair that takes very little time to avoid further damage to the road base and at a more economical cost than conventional repairs.
Jetpatcher™ is the only machinery that utilises a specialised distributor system which allows Jetpatcher™ to provide high production rates with little wear as there are no moving parts. This eliminates costly time and maintenance costs for the operators.

The 2.5m3 is the only unit that can be trailer fitted on request.

Please contact us, and we can discuss your requirements in detail.
How is the equipment supplied?
The equipment is supplied fully assembled on your own supplied / newly supplied truck cab/chassis. We can provide operator training with costs on application.
We provide a technical advisory supervise for materials and methods. A full 12-month warranty is provided on equipment (fair wear and tear excepted). The company maintains a complete inventory of spare parts.
What are the options available on the Jetpatcher units?
Air assisted first arm: a power operated hose carrier arm to make manoeuvring and fixing of arm position more efficient. Beneficial if working in hilly terrain.
Split hopper: the large hopper holds the aggregate, and a smaller hopper holds sand for binding the surface so as to leave less loose aggregate. This is operated with a remote control from the nozzle.
Remote hydraulic outlet: this option provides a remote hydraulic outlet for tools – e.g., rock breakers, hammers.
Spreader box: This option includes a full truck- width spray bar and spreader box with roller discharge and hydraulic side shift and will lay an even single layer of aggregate in 600mm increments, up to 2.4 metres wide. It is available to be fitted with standard larger Jetpatcher™ 2500 Series units i.e., 5m3 and above in size. This option can only be ordered with a new machine and cannot be fitted to existing units.
