Winter is Coming, Here Are 4 Ways to Help You Prepare

Monday, November 20th, 2017

 

With winter coming, SMITH has identified 4 ways to help you prepare for your surface-prep and removal work. 

#1. Last-minute job opportunities

Consider buying or renting equipment now if you expect your customers to, (1) ask you to complete jobs others cannot; or (2) add more work to your current book of business. SMITH can help you identify the right new or used surface-prep equipment, and deliver in time to meet your deadlines.

#2. Equipment service and support

If you have not properly performed your equipment maintenance work during the season, we can help. SMITH can provide your maintenance personnel with technical assistance to assure your equipment is ready to work before its next use.

#3. Operations review 

If you feel your performance fell short of expectations, we can help you identify, discuss, and solve surface-prep issues so they don’t reoccur in the new year. SMITH uses the IDS process which helps companies identify the real issue to performance problems. Once the real issue is clearly identified and all options, data, and ideas are discussed, a solution will be provided and ownership taken to assure the issue can go away forever. After the operational review, we will make recommendations to help you select the right equipment, cutting tools, and removal process to assure you will be operational ready before the start of the new season.

#4. Surface-prep work does not have to be frustrating.

When the prep work is clearly specified in contracts, and there is agreement between all parties as to what the final surface needs to look like, the work can be satisfying and rewarding. SMITH has designed a series of questions for pavement maintenance and concrete flooring maintenance contractors called “The Removal Analysis.” These questions help those organizations better understand if they are equipped with the right tools, personnel and processes to perform the work their clients expect. Organizations that participate in the Removal Analysis can complete their work faster, easier, and more cost-effectively, achieving safer, sustainable surfaces for their clients.

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

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