What can the Jigsaw system provide?

  • Fast, high-quality and long lasting pothole repairs without hot materials.
  • Low costs for a 'permanent' pothole repair.

And for utilities repairs...

  • Key-hole-repair access under highways and footways with same day reinstatement to minimise traffic disruption.

How does it work?

  • Step 1: Front mounted Jigsaw machine attachment is located over the pothole from the cab of the Mulithog or other host vehicle.
  • Step 2: Operative mills pothole out into a larger standard shape with all arisings suction-removed leaving a clean, flat-based, right-angle-sided and radius cornered recess.
  • Step 3: Sealant solution is poured into the base of the recess.
  • Step 4: Manufactured asphalt tile of same shape as recess is installed in recess and excess sealant wiped off.
  • Step 5: Repair can be driven can be driven over in minutes.

And for multiple potholes close to one another...

  • Step 6: Relocate machine over next pothole and if required, cut part-way through the first repair tile repeating Steps 2-4 above.
