Advantages of the SK8000

Highway and Service Roads

The fastest removal rates in the industry!

Removes thermoplastic at 6,500 linear feet per hour (1,981 linear meter/hr).

Simultaneous removal of parallel markings.

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 40,000 sq. ft. (3,716 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 SK8000 will shut down and vacate the runway in under 1 minute.

The best runway maintenance equipment available.

Videos of the SK8000 Applications

The Stripe Hog SK8000 is a water blasting and recovery system designed for either asphalt or concrete airfields and roadways for
paint and thermoplastic removal, surface preparation, road retexturing, hydraulic spill cleanup, and removal of rubber deposits from
airport runways.

Chassis & Paint Options

We offer a wide variety of domestic and international chassis. While the SK8000 can be mounted to a chassis, it is auxiliary engine-driven meaning that it will not draw power from the chassis' engine.
