Hog Technologies, a world leader in marking removal and pavement maintenance, has delivered its award-winning Stripe Hog SH8000 to its first European airport customer.

The Stripe Hog SH8000 was delivered to Václav Havel Airport Prague in Prague, Czech Republic.

The Stripe Hog is a world-leading water blasting system for removing pavement markings from roadways and airfields, rubber deposits from runways, and for cleaning surfaces of hydraulic oil, curing compound, and more. The Stripe Hog has been the leading product of Hog Technologies since 1996 and is the #1 preferred choice amongst American airports. A total 93% of North American airports that own a water blaster, own a Stripe Hog.

Hog Technologies has built this rapport with airports through their innovation of water blasting technology. Innovations such as independent RPM control on the blasting heads, as well as a versatile range of attachments, such as the Hog Tusk, a grinding / water blasting combo head, have led to higher productivity and reduced operational costs. These innovations have even caused airports who owned other water blasting equipment to switch to the Stripe Hog. Once they switched, they never switched back.

The Stripe Hog is available in both PTO and Auxiliary Engine-Driven formats. The Stripe Hog can integrate to the chassis of your choice or can be mounted to a skid or trailer. The Stripe Hog is available in a variety of flow rates ranging from 5.2gpm (19lpm) to 24gpm (91lpm). The Stripe Hog SH8000 is a PTO Engine-driven system with a flow rate of 12gpm (45lpm) and contains blasting widths from 6in (15.2cm) to 44in (111cm).
