got potholes?


Hot Patch truck and trailer inserts lead the way.
Improved worker safety, longer lasting pothole repairs and lower cost.

Here is the problem:
A Hot Patch Heater is a specially designed truck/trailer bed insert used to heat cold patch material to an optimum temperature and prolong the life of hot mix asphalt during the work day.
Longer Lasting Pothole Repairs and Reduce Injuries for Workers

Why Heat Cold Patch Material?

Hot Patch Heater Boxes

  • Reduce Injuries for Workers — Heated patch mix is always easier to shovel than unheated patch mix – especially in cold temperatures. Heating the patch mix eliminates repair workers from having to "jam" shovels into unheated patch mix. By eliminating these jarring impacts to hands, wrists, elbows, shoulders and backs, the risk of injury is greatly reduced.
  • Longer Lasting Pothole Repairs — Heated patch mix leads to longer lasting pothole repairs. The heated mix better conforms to the shape of the pothole. This both mechanically "locks" the repair material into the pothole and it better seals the repair from future moister intrusion.

How it works

Hot Patch Heaters bring asphalt patch repair mix to an optimum working temperature.

All Hot Patch models feature a triple-layer steel bed. The middle layer of the bed consists of carefully designed flow channels between the inner and outer layers of the bed.

A fluid is circulated through the bed and is heated through a 120V overnight heater and, on most models, an onboard diesel fired heater. The result is a uniform heat across the bed that evenly heats patch mix to optimized temperatures.

Hot Patch Heaters are designed to not overheat cold patch material. Cold patch material that is overheated will begin to break down and lose most of it’s binding properties. Trying to heat cold patch material in a “hot box” will frequently cause the material to be overheated.

Our Customers

Who We've Helped

For nearly 20 years Hot Patch Heaters have been used by municipalities, street and water departments, county highway departments and state-level DOTs. These same types of customers with medium to large scale patching needs will appreciate the many upgrades incorporated into our redesigned EVO full size models.

Hot Patch also offers the LT Pothole Patcher. The LT (Light Truck) models are designed to fit between the wheel wells of a standard pick-up truck. Using much of the same technology as our full-size models, the LT will greatly improve patching for small townships, universities and property maintenance companies who may have small to medium size patching requirements.
