Weather the Storm of Winter with ND Brown’s Tarmac Hot Boxes


Tarmac Hot Box Hire Vehicles

A recent meeting by Lancashire County Council saw those in charge blame the recent weather for an increase in pothole repairs. According to the Lancashire Post, the County Council was announcing another 84 wholesale resurfacing and surface dressing schemes. However, the opposition councillors have been blaming it on the poor standards carried into previous road resurfacing projects.

It’s likely that the adverse weather conditions that unpredictably gave us snow in April have had an effect on the potholes across the UK. After all, longer freezing conditions will lead to further expansions of the ground and weaken it even further. However, whether these potholes were as a result of weather conditions or poor repair jobs, we can help.

Here at ND Brown, we are committed to providing you with vehicles that are best suited to your specific project. Our range of tarmac hot box vehicles are adept at dealing with potholes in all types of situations. Thanks to their maneuverability, they are great for installing fresh tarmac on any shape of surface. We also spend a lot of time servicing and maintaining our hot box vehicles to ensure that they are working at the optimum level for you upon arrival. It also means that our tarmac hot box vehicles are low maintenance for you during your hire contract.

Each of our hot box ranges are insulated for thermostat control to make road resurfacing easier and have the option of propane gas heating, electronic gas ignition and digital temperature control systems.
