One question people often have about these machines is whether it will pump sand. The answer is yes. The machine will pump and spray sand. Keep in mind that when spraying any abrasive through a pump, the life of the pump impeller will be shortened. However, the replacement parts are readily available and easily replaced. No matter which machine you purchase, impeller replacement will always be part of your general machine maintenance.
Sand is important because a parking lot that is sealcoated without sand will be slippery when wet and people will slip and fall.
The AK2200-T has another feature that is really practical. That is its agitation method. Most machines use a mechanical system which work well but have moving parts. The Asphalt Kingdom machine uses the pump for agitation. An entire tank of sealcoat can be mixed in just minutes using this method.
