The RY10 is designed to melt down rubber cubes of crack filler and apply it in cracks at walking speed. Fill twenty-five feet worth of cracks in just 15 seconds. That's $10 in profit in just 15 seconds. It's a 2 in 1 unit designed to melt down rubber cubes of crackfiller and apply it at walking speed. Anyone can do it.
The RY10 comes standard with manual agitation. The optional Ergokit upgrade provides on-the-fly paddle agitator on the handlebars, which allows you to agitate the crack filler while pushing the machine. The agitator mixes the crack filler in the kettle so it melts faster and prevents blockage in the drain valve inside the kettle.
Choosing a Melter
The RY10 is perfect for asphalt maintenance contractors or DIY’ers looking to fill cracks on parking lots or driveways. While the RY10 is the traditional introductory melter for crack repair, we highly recommend upgrading to the RY10 PRO with a halo-enclosed base burner and no flameouts. It's much safer, more productive and allows you to maximize your business further!

The RY10 Crack Fill Machine Includes:
1) Heavy duty bracket protects thermometer from accidental damage while in transit or during operation. You need your temperature gauge to operate your melter so be sure to protect it from damage.
With reliability and performance in mind, we've spent countless hours engineering this asphalt crack sealing machine that has now become one of our top sellers.
2) Optional Ergokit provides on-the-fly agitation. This allows you to agitate (mix) the crack filler while pushing your RY10 at walking speed. This prevents you from having to walk around the side of your machine to mix the rubber that is melting. It also prevents you from getting smoked since you’re mixing from behind the machine instead of directly above the kettle chamber. It melts the crack sealer down much faster. And it prevents the valve from clogging on the inside of the kettle. Blockage can cause timely delays that prevent you from being as profitable.
Crack Fill Machine that's Easy to Use
It is extremely easy to operate and comes with a detailed operating manual. Using the asphalt crack sealing machine is as simple as pushing a lawn mower or grocery cart.
Simply open the top lid of the kettle. Place your block of crack filler into the main chamber.
Light your torch and heat the machine up to 350°F. Allow the material to turn from solid to liquid form. Make sure to use your agitator to mix the crack filler while it's going through its melting process. This will allow you to melt the crack filler faster.
Once the crack filler is in liquid form, you can go ahead and start to apply the crack filler at walking speed. Be sure to let the crack filler block melt down completely before you start your application process; otherwise you will be working in a stop and go fashion.
Grab the push handle with two hands and make sure the machine’s applicator is over the asphalt crack. Squeeze the trigger lever that opens the valve down on the right hand side of the machine and push the machine, following the asphalt crack.
The valve will open and liquid crack sealer will flow down the application spout out into a horseshoe shaped scraper.
Don’t overfill the horseshoe shaped scraper: it will overflow out on the edges. The horseshoe shaped scraper is on a pivot arm designed to follow the contour of the asphalt.
The scraper smooths out the crack filler and creates a watertight seal on the asphalt cracks. This prevents water from getting into the asphalt cracks, eroding the foundation or freezing and expanding and causing further damage to the asphalt investment.
If you have a lot of cracks to seal I recommend that you continuously feed the blocks of crack filler into the hot liquid inside the kettle. The solid cubes will melt faster this way and save you melt down time.
Here is an analogy we like to use: Imagine having a glass of hot water and placing an ice cube inside of that glass of hot water. The ice cube would melt much faster compared to if it was placed into an empty glass. The same applies to crack sealer blocks. If you place it in the melted material and submerge it, you will experience faster melting and be more productive.
Quality and Reliability
We understand how important it is to have a reliable equipment to get your crack jobs done professionally. We have spent countless hours developing these machines with tour in house engineer. Our goal was to create a rugged machine that will hold up with the environment that it's working in and at the same time being extremely productive for you.
If you take a close look at the photos and videos you'll notice that the quality is really second to none. The precision welds are neat and strong, the parts and pieces that make up the unit are all top quality assuring you that you’re getting a reliable long lasting unit that is safe and productive.
Asphalt Maintenance Contractors Should Own a Crack Sealing Machine!
The expected margins that can be earned when sealing cracks are around 70%. Most contractors charge $0.50 to $1.00 per linear foot for this service.
If you do some quick math, you’ll soon see that earning $250 to $500 is easily achievable. Most driveways in North America range from 400 to 600 square feet and generally have 100+ feet worth of cracks. Parking lots have even more making this an excellent opportunity to add an additional monetization vertical to your business.
If you’ve used liquid pour crack sealants you know that the quality is substandard to that of solid hot pour rubberized. Generally, liquid pour is water-based and only lasts for 6 months to a year. Homeowners generally use it. Solid hot pour lasts for up to three years and is recommended for contractors to use as its quality and lifespan is much better. The rubber based compounds in the material have oil based properties which allow for better bonding to the crack walls and takes way longer to breakdown compared to water-based.
Whether you’re maintaining your asphalt parking lot yourself of providing asphalt maintenance services as a Contractor, we’ve developed a detailed crack sealing repair guide that will guide you through the step-by-step crack repair process that will give you the best results.
We understand that you need quality sealcoating equipment and supplies to get the job done right. We don’t want you in the fog trying to figure things out.

It's good to clean it out completely after 5 uses; otherwise there is a possibility of charring rubber in areas where there may be multiple layers of rubber built up.
To clean it, heat it up and scrape it out with a scraper on a broom handle. Then start fresh with a brand new box of crackfill.
I have left over tar in my machine. Is it okay to leave it there and reheat it at a later time?
Absolutely! You just have to heat it up again when you are ready to use it.
How soon can you drive on newly filled cracks?
As soon as the crackfiller comes down to ambient temperature - sometimes as soon as 30-45 minutes when it is hot, and more quickly in cooler temperatures. Test with a stick: if you push down on the crackfiller and the crackfill doesn't tack to the stick, you're good to drive on it.
Does machine come with burner?
This unit comes with an external torch as its burner system. The RY10's big brother, the RY10 Pro, has an enclosed halo base burner.
How long does it take to melt a full pot on start up?
It takes approximately 30 minutes to get a full pot on start-up. If this is your full-time business, we'd recommend upgrading to the RY10 Pro which cuts melting time in half with its halo-shaped burner. For occasional repairs, the RY10's melting time is probably not an issue.
The torch will not ignite or the torch will not stay lit
1) The fuel level could be too low
2) The propane cylinder valve could be partially or fully closed, which can restrict fuel flow
3)The pressure regulator valve may be in the off position or may not be providing sufficient fuel flow
1) Check and refill your fuel tank
2) Ensure your fuel valve is fully open. You can do this by turning the knob fully counter-clockwise
3) You may increase the pressure from the regulator by turning the knob clockwise
If the weather is really hot, should I still be crack filling?
The crack sealant can be used in high-heat situations like deserts, but it has also been proven to stay flexible down to -0°F.
What type of grease do I use to lube up the RY10 and RY10 Pro valve?
