"It's gonna be a gamechanger": Pothole repairing machine arrives in NZ

It’s being billed as the best thing to happen to NZ’s pothole-margeddon problem since the infamous Pothole Penis Painter. 

For the first time in New Zealand, an all-in-one pothole repairing machine has arrived that is revolutionising pothole repairs worldwide. There is nothing else like it. 

The Pothole Pro repairs potholes in a fraction of the time and cost of current manual labour methods. It also means fewer orange road cones and fewer frustrated motorists. 

JCB Construction Sales Manager, Tony Hennessy, told Kerre Woodham that generally it can take workers quite a while to rip up the road and crop the pothole for repair properly. 

He said that the Pothole Pro can cut the crop and clean it up in about eight minutes, roughly a quarter of the time needed without it.
