Remove Faster News Thanksgiving 2015

Headlines to Help you Remove Faster

Thanksgiving 2015:  We wish you and your family a Happy Thanksgiving.   In keeping with tradition, our offices will be closed on Nov 26 but will reopen the following day to quickly assist you with your removal requirements.

New Removal Tools for 2016: The SMITH Engineering and Production teams have been hard at work delivering innovative surface-prep tools to help you remove faster on concrete or asphalt. Here’s just 4 of the many new SMITH tools you can have under your tree this Christmas.

(1) The Automated Engagement System (AES)

actuator

One of the frustrations with operating walk-behind surface preparation and traffic line removal equipment is not being able to precisely control the start and stop of each removal pass. Traditional cam levers used to raise and lower the cutters to the surface are awkward to use. They require taking your hands off the handle to raise or lower the cutting head, compromising the final profile finish.

Introducing AES, the Automated Engagement System for new or existing SMITH LNX8 Rotary Erasers and SMITH SPS10 EZOFF Removal Systems. AES is a game-changer in removal,  a simple one-button push control that will effortlessly begin and end each removal pass while maintaining precise SP1-SP10 surface finish profiles. AES can be added to any existing LNX8 Eraser and EZOFF with SR-25 Driver.  To add an AES to your existing SMITH,  please speak to your SMITH Representative .

indexable(2) The 8-edge Indexable Insert Flat-Cutting Drum (8eI2)

If you are looking to prep, groove, remove or bump grind while leaving a super-flat smooth surface finish, please read on.

SMITH has introduced a new adjustable-width cutter drum with indexable inserts and 8-cutting edges called “8eI2”. This new Drum is designed for use on most stripe-removal trucks and SMITH walk-behind drum-style removers. It’s a flat-cutting action drum assembly that can accomplish groove-inlay, shaving, surface-prep, coating, and traffic line removal quickly. The 8eI2 is available in TCT or PCD cutting squares with  8 (1″ wide) cutting edges in drums up to 16″ wide. When one sharp-edge 8eI2 square dulls, simply rotate to a new sharp edge. The 8eI2 drum assembly can be purchased at a fraction of the cost of competitive single-side flat cutting drums.  To learn if 8eI2 is right for you, speak to your SMITH Representative.

 

(3) PCD Aggressive Shredding Stripper (PCD-ASS)

PCDThe X Series Rotary Eraser (X1, X# and LNX8) now can remove faster with a new tool, called the PCD Aggressive Shredding Stripper (PCD-ASS).  It is the perfect tool to remove Elastomerics, Waterproof Membranes, and Tenacious Deck and Floor Coatings.  The PCD-ASS are engineered to quickly take-off hard to remove coatings and membranes. For details on using your grinders or a SMITH with a PCD-ASS , contact us here.

FS391-zoom(4) FS391 Heavy-Duty Skid Steer Attachment Removal System

The all new SMITH FS391 is an all-purpose, all-in-one next generation removal tool that works as hard as you do.  To reserve your FS391 for 2016, please contact your SMITH Representative now.

Say YES to AES – Automated Engagement System

Tuesday, November 24th, 2015

Why you should say YES to AES

One of the frustrations with operating walk-behind surface preparation and traffic-line removal equipment is not being able to precisely control the start and stop of each removal pass. Traditional cam levers used to raise and lower the cutters to the surface are awkward to use. They require taking your hands off the handle to raise or lower the cutting head, compromising the final profile finish.

The solution:
actuator

The “AES” or Automated Engagement System, a simple one-button push actuator that controls the “up and down” action of the cam lever assembly located on the SMITH LNX8, SPS8 and SPS10 removers.

We designed the AES to easily retrofit on all existing SMITH LNX8 Erasers with the battery-start system, as well as being available as an option on all 2016 SMITH LNX8, SPS8 and SPs10 models.

The AES is a real game-changer in removal, because the operator can begin and end each removal pass while maintaining precise SP1-SP10 surface finish profiles. It’s a perfect compliment to operating the SMITH LNX8 by itself, or with the SMITH Sulky SR-25 Driver if you don’t have a battery start. The AES can also be added to the SPS10 and EZOFF Systems when using the SMITH Sulky SR-25 Drivers.

Next step? Say “yes!”

For more information, or to obtain the AES for your existing SMITH LNX8, SPS10 or EZOFF, please contact your SMITH Representative, and say YES to AES!
