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.

Seven Surface-Prep Essentials That Belong in Every Striper’s Toolbox

It’s not always easy to figure out what type of surface-prep equipment tools to own. Even for an experienced pavement marking contractor, putting together the right mix of prep-before-marking removal equipment takes thought, time, and inevitably, money.

As a striping professional, you want to make sure the investment you’re making in surface-prep tools is a good one, especially if you are aiming for quality products where costs can quickly add up.
