Advantages of the SK55000

Highway and Service Roads

Pavement marking removal rates up to 5,557 linear ft/hr (1,693 linear meters per hour.)


Rapid removal of single, continuous lines.


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


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

Airports and Runways

Rubber removal rates up to 30,000 sq. ft. (2787 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 extremely 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 SK5500 will shut down and vacate the runway in under 1 minute.
