Python® 5000 (Tier 3)
Outside of North America or Europe

The Python® 5000 is for use outside of North America or Europe, in locations that do not have access to Ultra-Low Sulfur Diesel Fuel.
The Python® 5000 is a self-propelled pothole patching machine that will save you money while keeping your streets and roads well-maintained. It will make long-lasting patches using standard asphalt mixes, and it has the unique ability to make continuous repairs to long cracks and joins in the road. One person can easily carry out the entire patching operation without ever leaving the comfort and safety of the operator’s cab.
