Graco Launches New High-Production GrindLazer Scarifiers

Rapid marking removal without surface damage

MINNEAPOLIS--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Graco Inc.(NYSE:GGG), a leading manufacturer of fluid handling equipment, is proud to introduce three new high-production GrindLazer® surface preparation products: the RC820 H, RC1640 H, and RC1625 G. These new scarifying machines are designed to help contractors easily remove up to 2,400 square feet of markings per hour.

Unlike traditional waterblasting systems that damage concrete and asphalt, these rotary scarifiers are designed to remove markings while keeping the surface integrity intact. They can even be used on cracked surfaces. They achieve this by using a spring suspension to float single or multiple rotary-style cutters on the surface, allowing them to chip coatings off without harming the substrate or leaving grooves.

Since they are mounted to skid loaders, these high-production rotary scarifiers are ideal for large-volume applications at airports and municipalities as well as for striping contractors who require rapid removal of markings from concrete or asphalt. All three machines are designed for use with a Graco LazerVacTM vacuum system for collecting dust and debris to keep jobsites clean and safe.

“With these new GrindLazer scarifying machines, contractors no longer have to worry about damaging the surface when removing markings from concrete or asphalt,” said Ben Tollefson, Global Product Marketing Manager for Pavement Equipment at Graco.
