What is an asphalt crack filler applicator?
An asphalt crack filler applicator is a tool or equipment specifically designed for the application of crack filler materials to repair cracks in asphalt surfaces. It is used to efficiently and effectively fill the cracks, ensuring proper coverage and adherence of the crack filler. It can be a pour pot, a squeegee or a melter/applicator Machine like the Hotbox 10. These are specialized machines that melt and apply hot pour crack fillers. They consist of a heated kettle or melter unit and an attached applicator wand or hose. The machine heats the crack filler material to the required temperature and pumps it through the wand or hose for precise application into the cracks. Melter/applicator machines are commonly used by professional contractors because it is an efficient way to lay down a good amount of crack sealant and requires only one man to operate.

How To Use an Asphalt Crack Filler Machine?
It’s really easy to set up and use a HOTBOX 10 crack fill machine. You only need to follow three simple steps and you’ll be good to go.
Put a block of rubberized asphalt crack filler in the main melter chamber, then light your torch and allow the material to heat up in 20 minutes or less. You can also use the agitator as it warms to speed up the heating process.
Check to see that the crack filler has fully melted and turned from solid to liquid form. Once it has, you can start to push your HOTBOX 10 at walking speed along any cracks you wish to repair.
To deposit the rubberized crack filler, use the controls on the machine’s handles. Simply press the trigger lever as you walk along each crack, and the filler will be deposited into a scraper. This scraper will smooth the crack filler out along the crack and create a seal.
For more information, consult the detailed operating manual included with your product.
There’s a reason the HOTBOX 10 is as popular as it is. As an easy-to-use, reliable solution, it is the ideal product choice for anyone who has crack filling needs. Use it to apply rubberized crack filler in the most cost-effective way possible, for a professional and long-lasting repair to your asphalt and pavement cracks.
With the HOTBOX 10, you can cover between seven and 10 linear feet of cracks per pound of crack filler, and in just seconds!

It also requires minimal maintenance. You don’t even have to drain or clean the unused crack filler after each run. Instead, the HOTBOX 10 crack fill machine will simply reheat whatever’s left over in the melter body when you next use it, so neither your time nor your materials get wasted.
While most popular with professional sealcoating and crack filling contractors, the HOTBOX 10 can also be used by property managers and homeowners looking to do their own asphalt crack repairs. We have even seen homeowners pitch in to purchase and share one of our HOTBOX 10 crack fill machines and a pallet of crack filler, so that together they can serve the needs of their community!
