SMITH X-Series Erasers for Bridges, Roadways, Parking Decks and Airfields

Friday, November 17th, 2017

SMITH X-Series Erasers for Bridges, Roadways, Parking Decks & Airfields

Removing markings from asphalt and concrete is much more than just taking up the stripe. Preserving the surface that’s left behind is equally important! So if you want to remove the stripe, and leave the road behind, consider the SMITH X-Series rotary erasers.

When it comes to removing markings or preparing the surface for new overlays on bridge decks, parking lots, airfields and  roadway surfaces, look at the benefits of the SMITH X1SMITH X3, or SMITH LNX8 Erasers.

The easy-rolling, scraping and smoothing action of the SMITH X-Series erasers are designed to remove all markings without grooves or ghost lines that traditional scarification, planing and waterblasting equipment leaves behind.

Unlike waterblasting, the X-Series Erasers will NOT undermine porous road surfaces, because the X-Series controls cut depth penetration with precision. Owners of both machines also know that it costs less to own an X1, X3, or LNX8 Eraser. Not only can anyone operate it after an hour of training, but the acquisition and maintenance costs are less than 1/10th that of ultra-high-pressure waterblasting.

Want to “Be Kind” to the surface by removing the stripe and not the surface? Want to Be Kind to the environment and the operator using a HEPA vacuum with all dust producing equipment? Contact your SMITH representative to learn how you and your customers can benefit with the SMITH X-Series Erasers. Don’t forget to ask about about these seven essential surface prep tools that belong in every striper’s toolbox.

Buy a SMITH with a Section 179 Deduction

Friday, November 3rd, 2017

If you are looking at purchasing or leasing new or used surface-preparation or other equipment, here is great tax savings news. You can deduct all purchases up to $500,000 under Section 179.

A 50% bonus depreciation has been reinstated for tax year 2017, and is extended through 2019 under Section 179.

This means you can deduct an additional 50% of the amount over $500,000, in addition to your standard depreciation deduction. This applies to equipment acquired and put into service during 2017. Bonus depreciation will then phase down to 40% in 2018, and finally to 30% in 2019. When applying these provisions, Section 179 is generally taken first, followed by the bonus depreciation.

The good news is, you can buy SMITH or other equipment for your operations on credit or lease, and benefit from the tax savings.

Download the “Create Your Own Tax Break” page below. It includes an excellent tax savings equipment lease/purchase example.
