Snake Oil Baron March 24, 2012 10:03 PM Now there is a good idea. Bill Bennett March 24, 2012 11:21 PM saw the interview with the inventor elsewhere his presentation was ah, ah, the machine seems like an improvement over five people standing around doing nothing that we usually see here in Oregon oldguy March 25, 2012 11:33 AM Northampton, Massachusetts really needs this machine! Richardf March 25, 2012 02:05 PM marvelous idea Alex Lekander March 25, 2012 02:32 PM We need these in Tucson! Derek Howe March 25, 2012 11:20 PM my city has had something similar for a couple years now...and its a POS. Its temporary fills last only a couple months before they break, and the pothole is back.Our city just uses it as a way to make the roads temporarily better until a road crew can come and do it the proper way. Which is to use a concrete saw and cut out the bad portion, remove all the debris, place rebar in it, and fill the hole full of concrete. Douglas Renfro March 26, 2012 03:15 AM I imagine it would seem to be a POS if it were filling potholes in concrete with asphalt. It's pothole season here in Alaska, might be worth trying. Doubt it would beat our two man teams though. agulesin March 26, 2012 08:36 AM I'm not a Luddite but this looks like another cause of unemployment... what will the people who've been laid off because the council bought a few of these do to fill their time? I suppose they could be employed to maintain the vehicles!And the removal of loose material by compressed air seems a bit risky as flying stones would make nice dents on passing vehicles/pedestrians. 2640-3690 March 26, 2012 11:04 AM Send a couple of thousand to Australia. We could keep them going for years. We also need bigger ones that can fill in holes 3 and 4 times bigger. Some newer freeway and tollways have potholes and they are less than 10 years old. Actually we need better built roads across the whole country. myale March 26, 2012 01:25 PM Perhaps a stpid question, but why not inject a stabiliser/adhesive into the hole first to impregnate the surrounding edge, which stabilisers the edge and provides adhesion of the new material. Tar, mrely provides an adhesion to the old edge surely with little or no penetration. Funny how I envisage a machine similar to what is used to repair the glass windscreens - clear debris from hole, cover hole and evacuate, impregnate with resin, fill hole with more resin or an injection moulding style fill, move to next hole. Perhaps when Plasticrete becomes reality or something.
