The Bobcat asphalt preservation tool second unit is used to grind and level the heated asphalt to be compacted back into place, creating a strong new patch using onsite recycled material. Dale Brandt, Bobcat district manager and aftermarket manager, levels off any excess material and preps the area for compaction.

Lano Equipment of Norwood, Norwood, Minn., hosted a demo of the new Bobcat reclaimer system at the Norwood Lanes Bowling parking lot, Norwood, Minn., on Sept. 17.

The demo event highlighted the new Bobcat attachment, the asphalt preservation tool. Bobcat asphalt preservation tools answer the growing need for an eco-friendly restoration process that decreases expenses and extends the life of road and parking lot repairs, according to the company. This simple restoration system uses an infrared asphalt heater and asphalt processor to repair potholes and other surface defects like cracks, deteriorating surfaces and frost heaves that develop in streets, highways and parking lots.
