The Stripe Hog SH8000 is able to provide runway retexturing in extreme hot climates where friction is lost from asphalt bleeding.
Other benefits include:
- Rubber removal rates up to 40,000ft² (3,716m²/hr) on asphalt and concrete runways
- Rapid cleaning and rejuvenation of runway centerline marking retro-reflectivity reduces dramatically the frequency of center line painting
- 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 SH8000 will shut down and vacate the runway in 45 seconds
