Bergkamp’s Pothole Patcher Rental Program: Quick Delivery and Safe, Effective Patching
Rental of Bergkamp’s advanced patchers eliminates capital expenses and allows agencies to get ahead with street maintenance programs.
SALINA, KS – Bergkamp Inc., based in Salina, Kansas, is pleased to announce its new Pothole Patcher Rental Program, which allows busy public works departments to quickly bring an all-in-one FP5 Flameless Pothole Patcher or an SP5 Spray Injection Pothole Patcher into their fleets. With immediate availability of late-model, low-hour equipment and competitive rental rates, agencies are not required to wait for capital expense budgets and approvals to begin providing permanent pothole patches in their areas. Bergkamp is the only patcher manufacturer in the United States to offer such a rental program.
Due to COVID-19 stay-at-home orders, streets are experiencing less traffic, creating ideal conditions for safe and effective pothole patching. Additionally, the FP5 Flameless Pothole Patcher and SP5 Spray Injection Pothole Patcher are both built for maximum safety to crews. With the SP5, only one crew member is required to both drive and operate the patcher. In-cab joystick controls allow patching operations to be conducted safely from inside the cab. As a less invasive technique than traditional methods, spray injection patching provides a quality pothole repair in minutes.
The FP5 is completely electric, with no fuel-fired burners, and is designed to keep crews away from traffic lanes, greatly reducing the dangers to workers. Because the standard material chute, optional swing auger, spoils bins, and tools can be easily accessed from the back or curbside on the machine, the operator can safely reach them without stepping into traffic. A hydraulic lift platform lowers the pavement breaker and plate compactor from transport position to ground level to reduce the risk of back injury. Potholes repaired using the FP5 have an increased life over the traditional “throw and roll” method.
“The new Pothole Patcher Rental Program offers rental terms to fit agencies’ needs, including long- and short-term rentals and a rental purchase option,” notes Todd Bigler, Government Sales Manager for Bergkamp. “It’s a great way for agencies to gain a late-model pothole patching unit, without having to go through the months-long purchase cycle – especially this time of year, when they are working hard to catch up on winter’s freeze-thaw damage to their streets and roads.”
Agencies interested in renting either an SP5 or an FP5 pothole patcher should contact Todd Bigler at email@example.com, or call 785-829-1354. For more information on Bergkamp pothole patchers, visit www.bergkampinc.com/patching-and-maintenance.
