"If you have an asphalt job, make sure you use that Zipper."
"Our challenge here is the removal of asphalt and the money involved and utilizing the Zipper. 1,000 feet trench, which is 2,000 feet linear foot saw cut, would be $2.80 per linear foot. Plus the amount of loads of chunked asphalt I have to get rid of. 2,000 feet linear at $2.80-3.00, you're in the ballpark of $6,000, just in saw cutting. They're also here a day and a half saw cutting. Then I have to remove that and that is about 7-10 loads of asphalt at $380 a load. Now with the Zipper I only lose the operator with the machine, two laborers. That 1,000 feet I have done in less than three hours. Three hours cleaned up put back in the trench, tamped, rolled and I don't have to worry about plating it. I can even let the traffic ride over it. If you have an asphalt job, make sure you use that Zipper."
