Has anyone every heard of the machine I'll attempt to describe. I saw it in use one day ont he road. It came alone ont he back of a dumbtruck it was lowered on to pavement that was uneven, it heated the asphalt up and the crew racked it so that it would be even with the road that was there. Ya see they paved a road by me then something broke dug it up, asphalt was uneven and this truck which i have never seen ( I mean the truck looked brandy new) came along heated the asphalt up the crew racked it and now you can't even really tel except for the color that its different. Just wondering if anyone has ever heard of this.

I have seen them around here felix marino out of peabody,ma has them on trailers.they pull up to the spot that has to be reworked set the machine down ,and it heats it up like a broiler making the asphalt soft so they can patch,blend and add more if needed then they roll it and it's as good as new.All it is ,is a very big gas heater.
