Advantages of the SK5500

The Stripe HOG SK5500 can use optional bladder bags, allowing you to store dirty water in the same footprint as the freshwater tanks. As freshwater levels decrease due to usage, the bladder bags fill and occupy the empty space.


The Stripe HOG features a de-watering system that leaves debris material in a mostly dry state for easy dumping and disposal versus a messy slurry found on competitive trucks


Simultaneous vacuum recovery allows the surface to quickly dry. New pavement markings can typically be applied within 20 minutes after removal.

With clean, potable water and no harsh chemicals, the Stripe HOG SK5500 can retexture runways and restore friction lost due to heavy snow or extreme heat.


Our Stripe HOGs use all stainless steel debris tanks and not steel tanks that are epoxy coated. The debris tanks can tilt up to 60° for easy dumping and do not require any vibration to loosen material.


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
