4-Ton Asphalt Hot Box

Falcon 4-Ton Asphalt Hot Box make it easy for your work crews to repair utility cuts, patch asphalt and fix potholes. A wide range of equipment options provides unparalleled versatility.

The Hot Box and Recycler allow workers to transport both hot and cold mix while keeping it at the optimal temperature during the day—and holding it overnight for up to 72 hours.

Benefits of a Falcon 4-Ton Asphalt Hot Box

Around 20% to 30% of hot mix cools before it can be effectively used in patching operations. This results in significant waste and financial loss over time. A Falcon Hot Box Trailer will keep the mixture at the optimum temperature while reducing waste. You can also recycle asphalt chunks and millings and reclaim unused hot mix with an optional dual burner system.

A standard dump truck has a raised bed that puts workers in an awkward physical position as they shovel asphalt mixture. Falcon Hot Box Trailers have an optimized shoveling height which results in less wear and tear on the backs, arms, and shoulders of your crew. This translates to increased productivity and fewer Workers’ Compensation claims.
