Asphalt, by nature, matures and ages through time. Prolonged exposure to the sun and other natural elements cause it to grow brittle, which leads to flaking and cracking. Filling cracks is an important factor in asphalt maintenance. It helps prevent additional damage by keeping moisture from seeping into the foundation, and avoid weakening the asphalt even further.
As a sealcoating and asphalt maintenance contractor, you want to fill cracks efficiently and in a timely manner, while minimizing risk and safety issues on the job site.
Our Advanced Line of Crack Carts
1. RY10 Pro
The RY10 PRO Crack Seal Melter & Applicator Machine is a 10-gallon walk-behind crack cart that offers efficiency and safety while getting the job done at walking speed. Featuring a 4-wheel design, rather than the standard 3-wheel version you see everywhere, this machine is less likely to tip over, making it more stable, safe, and reliable. Its enclosed halo-base burner system helps prevent flameouts and back flashes. The RY10 also features a powder-coated body and steel melting plate that distributes heat evenly while melting crack fill almost 50% faster than regular torch melters.
The RY10 Pro has a fully electric push-button start so you won’t need a lighter to start the igniter. In rare cases that the flame blows out, the built-in auto-flame-out sensor will shut off the gas immediately, minimizing the risk and hazard to the operator.
Optimized for one-man operation, the RY10's Application and Agitation controls are positioned side by side, so you can easily keep the rubberized crack fill melted and easy to apply on the go.
2. RY10 Elite
The RY10 Elite Crackfill Melter Applicator is efficiency personified! Compared to its predecessor, the RY10 Pro, this machine will allow you to maximize your business even further due to its more advanced features.
RynoValve prevents clogging while keeping the crack filler inside the kettle and not the valve. This feature makes the RY10 Elite virtually drip-free and easy to clean. RynoValve does not require pre-heating, saving the operator from having to torch the valve before and after use. The narrowed spreader shoe can move forward and reverse, so you leave a narrower strip of crack filler on the pavement while allowing for better maneuverability and spread-ability.
Burner ignition, temperature controls, and digital display are positioned operator-side for easy access and monitoring. Handlebars are redesigned for easy adjustability from 34” to 42” - making this machine compatible for operators with varying heights.
“On-the-fly” agitation pulls are redesigned to reduce operator posture changes, thus, lessening fatigue and unnecessary extra movements. Optimized kettle reduces heat loss and has 2 latch-able lids to prevent sealant from dripping in case of unexpected tip-over.

3. RY30 PRO Melter Oven
Filling cracks for a large project, such as a mall parking lot, requires a considerable amount of melted hot pour crack filler on the fly. This is where the RY30 PRO Gallon Crack Sealer Melter Oven comes in really handy.
This melter kettle can contain 150 to 175 pounds of melted crackfill. That is enough crack filler for 1,500 to 2,000 linear feet of cracks for every full kettle! This capacity allows you to fill multiple pour pots or melter applicators while keeping the crack sealant melted and hot on the go.
The RY30 features sealed dual burners that can heat up and melt crack sealer up to 50% faster, while saving fuel up to 50% more compared to regular torch melters. With a capacity to accommodate crackfill that can fill up to 9,600 linear feet per day, you can get the job done faster and more efficiently. No more standing around waiting for each batch of crack filler to heat up and melt. You will have enough material to keep your crew going.
