It sure doesn't hurt to offer this crack filling service to your clients. We usually recommend doing 1 or 2 cracks for free and then ask the client if they would like us to do the rest of the cracks. Consider the free crack filling on a couple cracks the demo. When the clients actually see the system in action they can't say "NO" and will happily spend an additional $50 to $100 in crack filling on their driveway.

The AK10 gallon crack filler system is mounted on steel wheels and comes equipped with a handle control release valve, steel finish plate for striking off the sealant in uniform width, a burner that is propane fired with hose, regulator for propane and heat flow and temperature gauge.
The system is very easy to maneuver for following random cracks that are up to two inches wide.
This system is much faster than using hand held pour pots and does a way better job compared to standard liquid acrylic crackfills that you can purchase at local hardware stores. Hot pour crackfiller lasts around 3 years VS cold pour which lasts about 6 months.

Questions & Answers
How do I assemble the AK10?
You can download and print out the AK10 Assembly Instructions, which works in conjunction with the assembly guide diagram that's included with your AK10. We've also created this assembly video to guide you through each step:
Valve not opening or closing
Typically this issue is due to having heated and cooled crack filler within the machine, and allowing crack filler to solidify within the valve. It is recommended to take the torch while it is on and apply it directly to the valve – this will heat up the cooled crack filler and allow the valve to function correctly again.
Valve Leaks & Shoe Problems:
- Valve leaks in off position
- Valve leaks slightly at all times
- Shoe is not flush to the ground
Please make sure the handlebars at the side of the machine are fully inserted into the sleeve. Even if the handlebars are 1" from the end, it can put both the valve and the shoe off from their sitting positions. Loosen the fasteners that hold the handlebars in place, push the handlebars completely in so they are flush with the end of the sleeve, and secure the fasteners back into place.
Temperature not stable
This depends on whether or not there is hot fluid within the hopper. If there isn't enough hot fluid in the hopper to cover the temperature gauge, the temperature reading will be incorrect and will often read higher than the actual temperature of the melted liquid. It is suggested to have the proper amount of hot liquid at all times and adjust the temperature to maintain that proper amount of melted liquid.
Temperature will not go up to 400 degrees
If there is not enough liquid within the hopper to get the base temperature of the machine up, it may be tough to reach higher temperatures. Please check that the torch is operating at a high enough temperature. If it's not operating with enough power, 400 degrees will not be reached. Another factor is the propane tank pressure. If it's only 1/3 full, then there is much less pressure and will have a great effect on torch heat and operation. Please make sure you have a propane tank that is adequately filled and is not almost empty.
Is the temperature gauge filled with glycerine?
They are not glycerine-filled, but we are looking to implement this.
