Temperatures are dropping steadily, and you’ve probably put your crack repair and sealcoating equipment and supplies in storage by now. You've been stenciling and line striping indoors, but outdoor line striping is definitely out of the question because the ground is covered with snow.
The downside of sealcoating and crack repair is that you can only do them during spring, summer, and certain days in the fall. But the good news is that the one thing that doesn’t go out of season is infrared asphalt repair.
And it's lucrative, too! In fact, it's possible to make $300 in under 10 minutes thanks to an asphalt repair equipment called RY2X2 2' Infrared Asphalt Heater.
But what is this machine, and how can it help you finish the year stronger than ever and boost your company's annual revenue? Let’s dive right in to answer your questions.
Meet the RY2X2 2' Infrared Asphalt Heater
It's the middle of winter and you get a few calls from customers now and then. Since the conditions are not ideal for sealcoating or even conventional crack repair, business has largely wound down for you.
But then you get those calls from customers requesting to have some potholes or depressions repaired as soon as possible. You want to say yes to these clients, but you don't have the right equipment for asphalt repair during winter.
Well, that's not a problem when you have the RY2X2 2' Infrared Asphalt Heater.
But how does this machine work?
In a nutshell, this asphalt repair equipment works by heating the asphalt and softening it.
Once the surface is softened and the asphalt has become loose, you can now rework the area and add asphalt millings as needed to make the area flat and usable again.
This machine is powered by a propane tank that sits on top of the unit. It heats the asphalt using infrared, making it more efficient, cost-effective, and safer for you and your customers.
In fact, it can turn 2 sq. ft. of damaged asphalt into something that you can rework in seven minutes or less!
How You Can Use the RY2X2 for Asphalt Repair to Earn $300 in 7 Minutes
Step 1. Turn on the RY2X2 and place it over the distressed asphalt to start heating it. If you're repairing a larger area, simply place multiple RY2X2s side-by-side over the distressed sections.
Step 2. Remove the RY2X2 after five to seven minutes and turn the machine off (or use it to heat and soften another distressed area). Using an asphalt lute, gently push the edges an inch or so towards the center first before reworking the entire area.
Step 3. Add asphalt millings (the darker, the better) to cover the depression if necessary.
Step 4. Spritz some asphalt millings rejuvenator on the section you are repairing.

8-ft Infrared Asphalt Heater Trailers vs. the RY2X2 2' Infrared Asphalt Heater
You've probably seen those 8' infrared asphalt heater trailers in action and you're thinking if it's better to buy one or use multiple infrared asphalt heaters instead.
We recommend that you invest in and use multiple RY2X2s instead of one large heater trailer. Heater trailers are great for fixing extensive asphalt damage, but most repair jobs are really not that big.
The total size of most potholes and asphalt depressions typically do not exceed 2 sq. ft. And even then, some are of an irregular size that it's difficult to maneuver an 8-ft asphalt repair equipment on them without damaging the surrounding area. Its versatility and maneuverability make the RY2X2 a great choice for both DIYers and contractors.
