If you're tired of using equipment that was invented decades ago and you're ready for real change, you have to check this melter applicator out. We went out in the field and re-thought crack filling from the ground up. Some of the incredible features and improvements of the RY10 ELITE include:
No more clogs! RynoValve keeps crack sealant inside the kettle, not in the valve. This means it is virtually drip free and can easily be removed and dipped in a solvent for easy future maintenance.
Stainless Steel RynoValve is the industry’s first valve that doesn't require any pre-heat saving users from having to torch their valve before or during jobs.
The spreader shoe is designed to spread crack sealer both forward and reverse. No more puddling!
The redesigned shoe is narrower, so you leave a narrower strip of sealant on the pavement.
Relocated to the rear of the kettle for greater operator visibility and sensitive controls relocated for increased reliability
RynoDash places burner ignition and control at your finger tips and allows you to precisely monitor kettle temperature via a brand new digital display panel
Redesigned handle bars can be easily adjusted from 35"-42" for users of all heights
Adjustable valve control distance and resistance reduce operator fatigue
Redesigned 'on-the-fly' agitation pulls all the controls closer together to reduce operator posture changes
Redesigned and optimized kettle reduces heat loss, supports 3 sided loading, has a latchable lid and will hold 2*30lb blocks of crack fill from empty
Tilted forward so in the case of overloading with crack sealer it spills away from the operator
RynoLifts added to the front of the kettle to make it super easy for two people to load on truck or trailer
Redesigned propane shelf increases the air gap between the propane tank and kettle
2-ton ratchet straps for ultimate security of your propane tank
The sealed burner is equipped with a CSA / UL approved flameout sensor which detects flameouts commonly caused by wind and prevents fuel from flowing to the burner.
Fully equipped with CSA/UL approved regulator to provide precise control over fuel flow to the kettle.
Standard accessories torch + hose management and new holster added for convenience
Polished billet aluminum bar ends, thermometer bezel and lifts combine with a rugged black powder coat and stainless hardware to provide a professional appearance and durability
What's the difference between the RY10 PRO and the RY10 Elite?
“DO BUSINESS WITH THIS COMPANY! I can't begin to tell you just how HONEST and FRIENDLY these people are. I spoke with Glenn Teano. A very down to earth type of guy. Easy to talk to and let me say that I had some concerns and he didn't hesitate to straighten them out quickly. I ordered the Ryno Worx 10 ELITE crack machine. I can tell you that there was no lying or stretching the truth when he described this machine to me. This machine is all that he said it would be and it was delivered fast and exactly as he said it would be. I described this machine as "The Cadillac" of all crack filler machines that I have ever had the opportunity to own. I don't write these things about companies that don't deserve them and I can't say enough about this company. THANK YOU ASPHALT KINGDOM For your HONESTY and your GREAT PRODUCTS! You are certainly a SCHOLAR in my eyes! America Needs More Honest Companies Like Yours!!!! I GIVE YOU 10 STARS ALL DAY LONG!!”
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.
How long can I keep unopened crack sealant?
Our crack filler has a shelf life of 10 years unopened. It's why so many of our customers choose to take advantage our half-pallet and pallet offerings: the savings are so high it is worth storing them until you need them. It can be stored outside; just cover it with weather-resistant pallet wrap and keep it out of the sun.
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.
How does it ship? Do I need to assemble it?
The RY10 Elite ships partially assembled in two boxes. This allows us to ship by courier instead of LTL shipment, which is easier for most people to receive. And no pallet to dispose of, either!
How do I adjust the handles and tension on the RY10 Elite?
To adjust the handlebar height on the RY10 Elite, loosen the bolts that attach the handlebars to the kettle. Find your ideal height and tighten the bolts. This will potentially change the positioning of the control rods for the valve. For detailed instructions on adjusting the handlebars, control rods, and valve tension, please watch our video user manual.
This video shows you step by step how to assemble the RY10 Pro or RY10 Elite Crackfill Melter Applicator.
What is a thermocouple? How do I replace it?
Thermocouple is responsible for shutting off the propane to a burner in the unlikely event of a flame out. This prevents unburned gas from flooding into the combustion chamber or a small smart might cause an explosion. It is an essential part of keeping you safe while working. Watch the instructional video on how to re-seat the thermocouple.
When melting the rubberized crack filler, does the whole block with plastic wrapper go into the melter kettle?
Yes, you can put the whole block into the melter kettle along with the plastic cling film. Don't worry because including and melting the plastic film is 100% safe. Plus, it will not affect the adhesion or the performance of the rubberized crack filler.
How do I clean the rubber off the RY10's shoe and wheels?
Use the RY10's torch to soften the crack fill on the shoe and wheels. You can then use a scraper (you can use a flathead screwdriver for this) to remove the softened rubber.
The asphalt comes out too quickly even by barely touching the release valve, is there something I can do to get the flow slower, or the release less touchy?
To make it a little easier to control the flow of the crackfill:
Lower the temperature of the kettle and it will cause the rubber to flow more slowly.
Lengthen the control arm for the valve by adjusting the turnbuckle. That way, you will be able to have the handle closer to the handlebars, and your hand will be more closed, which should provide more control for the valve operation.
