The SMITH LNX8™ is a unique product in the paving line marking world because it eliminates the grooving pattern or ghost line that is normally associated with flail cutter drum-style machines. Scarifiers as they're technically known, rely solely on scraping or striking the pavement surface with the intent to physically remove the pavement surface which obviously, gets rid of the line. The Smith FS200 or FS209 and SPS10 products are drum style cutters and if you're actually trying to get a slight groove in the pavement where the marking will go so the marking is flush with the pavement surface instead of ontop, then those are the way to go.
However, if you need a machine that will get rid of the paint or thermoplastic without drastically removing the pavement, the LNX8 is the way to go.
Thermoplastic, cold-plastic, epoxy or paint coatings are erased by the LNX8 by breaking the coating and scraping across it simultaneously, leaving a smoothed beveled edge without grooves or undulations on concrete or asphalt.
The Smith LNX8 is a walk-behind line remover machine that is easy to operate or you can purchase the optional ride-on machine for an even easier and faster job life. With the Smith LNX8, you get a no-vibration spindle mount with adjustable height, pitch and pressure controls with optional multiple ganged side-mounted removable weight ballasts with cradle dampener for best the surface finishes and long service-life.
When compared to the horizontal shaft drum style scarifiers, the LNX8 is a vertical shaft rotary setup that spins the removal tools along a vertical plane. This allows a circular top-down motion instead of a horizontal line of cutting and with the right rotary cutting tools, you can get an excellent finish with minimal maring on the surface.
