Advantages of the SK3000

Highway and Service Roads

Pavement marking removal rates up to 4,225 linear ft/hr (1,288 linear meters per hour.)

The John Deere tractor provides unmatched maneuverability and versatility for the removal of turn arrows, crosswalk markings, stop bars, etc.

Cleaning and rejuvenation of the retro-reflectivity of thermoplastic and cold plastic markings.

Simultaneous vacuum recovery allows for application of new markings in 20 minutes.

A cost-efficient model for small to mid-size contracting companies. It does not include a chassis. The buyer must provide a chassis or trailer for the transportation of the SK3000. Can be shipped in a shipping container.

Airport and Runways

Rubber removal rates up to 26,000 sq. ft/hr (2,415 m2/hr) on asphalt and concrete runways.

Rapid cleaning and rejuvenation of runway centerline marking retro-reflectivity dramatically reduces the frequency of centerline painting.

Runway retexturing in extreme hot climates where friction is lost because of asphalt bleeding.

Runway retexturing in climates with heavy snow and ice where snow removal brooms polish the surface of the runway.

Simultaneous vacuum recovery allows for immediate emergency landings during the removal process. The SK3000 will shut down and vacate the runway in under 1 minute.

The best runway maintenance equipment available.
