Available with a four-ton capacity, the towed Asphalt Optimizer pothole patcher from Cimline features an electronically-ignited, self-priming, diesel-fired, 105,000-BTU burner that heats the hopper chamber without applying direct flame. This is designed to eliminate hot spots in the top-loaded material. Heat is also dispersed via a central 4-inch tube located near the top of the hopper. A 26-gallon fuel tank provides up to 72 hours of heating. With the material door operated by a large-diameter wheel with a locking ratchet, operators can easily adjust the amount of gravity-fed mix reaching the unloading tray.
