Hog Technologies

We have become the market leaders worldwide with more water blasting units working around the globe than our 5 closest competitors combined. We will work tirelessly to maintain this position by always thinking “outside the box” and listening to our customers’ concerns.

HOG manufactures a variety of vehicles such as the Stripe Hog, Thermo Hog, Epoxy Hog, Rumble Hog, Grinder Hog, and Surface Hog. We have a wide array of options that are PTO engine-driven, auxiliary engine-driven, as well as non-CDL options for water blasting, pavement marking, and grinding/grooving.

The award-winning Stripe Hog quickly and completely removes all types of durable pavement markings from asphalt and concrete surfaces with the least amount of negative impact to the surface. The Stripe Hog does its work using needle-sharp 40,000 psi water jets and a powerful vacuum recovery system that leaves the road or runway clean and virtually dry. The resulting debris is quickly de-watered using a patented process so that the debris can then be dumped easily from the tank.

HOG was formed in 1988 by Founder & CEO, James P. Crocker who also served as HOG's President until 2023 when Vice President of Global Sales, Vince Giordano, was elevated to that position to run the company alongside James. It began as a small pressure cleaning company primarily servicing the residential community. The opportunity soon arose to use high-pressure water to remove road markings. Mr. Crocker was fascinated with the speed at which the markings were removed and the ability to remove such tough materials without substantially damaging the road surface.

The original Stripe Hog was developed in 1997 as the company sought to develop a machine that could perform pavement marking removal with near perfect and repeatable performance. Through rigorous research and development, the Stripe Hog pavement marking and runway rubber removal system has continued to improve in performance and now operates in 56 countries around the world.
