What type of grease do I use to lube up the RY10 and RY10 Pro valve?
White lithium grease.
How often should I clean my crack repair machine?
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.
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.
