Self Propelled Solutions
The Global Sweeping Python 5000 is a self-propelled pothole patching machine. One person can easily carry out the entire patching operation -- without ever leaving the comfort of the operator’s cab. Python 5000 will repair some of the biggest potholes you’ll encounter -- but it is so economical and so easy to use, you’ll be able to tackle those potholes long before they get big enough to be a problem ... Power, Performance, No Commercial Drivers License Required!
10 Reasons to Own a Global Sweeping Python 5000 Pothole Patcher:
- Produces Consistent, High-Quality Patches
The Global Sweeping Python 5000 produces long-lasting patches, equal to the orginal surface quality.
- Safe Work Environment
The operator never leaves the comfort of the climate-controlled cab. It's safer for other drivers on the road too!
- Uses Readily-Available Materials
The Global Sweeping Python 5000 uses all standard hot or cold asphalt mixes.
The average pothole can be patched in about two minutes.
- All-Weather Operation
The Global Sweeping Python 5000 produces excellent patches in both hot and sub-zero weather.
- Simple to Operate
All functions controlled from inside the climate-controlled cab by a single joystick.
- Maneuverability, Visibility & Quiet Comfort
The Global Sweeping Python 5000 offers outstanding visibility and a comfortable ride for operators, so they can stay on the job and remain fresh and alert. The highly maneuverable, short wheelbase chassis makes even the tightest areas accessible.
- Large Hopper
A 5 ton capacity hopper fills directly from the asphalt plant - and then keeps the material hot till it's ready to be used.
- Highly Mobile
The Global Sweeping Python 5000 travels from job to job at highway speeds. And when the operator arrives at the job, he never has to leave the safe, climate-controlled cab.
- Python 5000 Saves $$$ and Makes $$$
Add years to the life of your roads and triple your maintenance productivity by moving from a truck and two-person patching system to the Python 5000.
How the PYTHON 5000 Works
The operator fills the hopper with the asphalt mix of choice - either hot or cold. The hopper keeps the asphalt at the desired temperature by capturing heat from the engine exhaust.
The operator drives the Global Sweeping Python 5000 up to the pothole and, using in-cab controls, positions the multi-axis working arm over the top of the hole. All work is clearly visible to the operator. An air jet nozzle blasts water, dust, gravel and other debris from the pothole, providing a clean contact area for the patching material. Depending on the conditions, the operator may decide to spray the area with an emulsive tack oil.
The auger system carries the required amount of asphalt mix from the hopper and delivers it to the pothole. The multi-axis working arm provides the finishing touches, creating a compacted, finished patch in an average of two minutes. The operator is then ready to move on to the next pothole, leaving behind a patch that's superior to those created by manual methods.
If desired, one of two optional systems can be used to keep the asphalt at the right temperature overnight.
