Grazors, Blowers, and SweepersIt is a common misconception that smaller jobs don’t require professional equipment. However, when you are completing a project, details like clearing vegetation from cracks to prepare a walkway for paving will need the power of a professional grazor. A simple lawn edger will not effectively prepare the area to the extent needed in order to achieve an even seal with a long-lasting result. Additionally, it can end up costing you more time and labor.
Blowers and sweepers will help you clear leaves, gravel, debris, and standing water from your work area. We offer a variety of sweepers and attachments and several blowers; from hand-held to self-propelled pushing blowers. Whether you are using these for pavement preparation or other debris removal, we carry a wide range of equipment that is available for purchase or to rent.
Routers, Saws, and Hot Air Lance
Pavement routers and saws will help you prepare the pavement for sealing and repaving. We offer a variety of options including dust controlled routers and self-propelled routers. Many of our saws can be used for wet or dry cutting.
A hot air lance is used to dry and prepare pavement cracks, potholes, and distressed pavement surfaces for repair. We also offer the KM Crack Jet, which is a self-contained heat lance used for cleaning and drying cracks, and also etching the walls and surfaces of a crack to deliver maximum adhesion for the repair material.
