It used to take a team of men a long time to fix potholes. Not any more. The Jetpatcher is a one man (plus driver) pothole fixing machine, which can repair a hole in about five minutes, at a cost of some £60.00. The machine can apparently fix hundreds of holes every week. Cue Beatles song.
This kind of speed tech is going to be increasingly useful if we keep suffering freezing winters and ice damage to roads, which means that the £140,000 truck could become very popular indeed. [Via]
Jetpatcher’s road repair machines are fully self contained and carry all the necessary equipment and materials to repair road defects in rural and urban areas. The process is carried out by a team of 2 – driver and operator.
