Graco Launches Industry’s First Electric Ride-On Striping System

Maximum striping performance without engine noise, vibration or fumes

MINNEAPOLIS–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Graco Inc. (NYSE:GGG), a leading manufacturer of fluid handling
equipment, is proud to continue its legacy of innovation in the line
marking industry with the launch of the new LineDriver® ES
system and LineLazer® V ES 2000 line striper. This package
represents the industry’s first electric, battery-powered ride-on
striping system. Traditional gasoline-powered engines have been replaced
by high-efficiency electric motors, allowing contractors to complete any
striping job without the hassle of noise, vibration or fumes.

The new LineLazer V ES 2000 line striper has the increased performance
needed to work with two guns simultaneously and run up to 60 gallons of
paint on a single charge, making it ready to tackle any size job. Indoor
applications such as factories, warehouses and parking garages are no
problem. The engine noise-free performance also allows for nightime
striping in populated areas without causing a disturbance. The ES 2000
line striper is available in an available HP Automatic package that
features an automatic parking lot layout system and automatic paint guns
to produce skip-line patterns with ease.

The new LineDriver ES ride-on self propulsion system attaches to any
LineLazer striper to convert it from a walk-behind striper to a high
production ride-on solution. With forward speeds up to 10 mph, the
LineDriver ES system will help contractors complete large jobs faster.
The new LineDriver ES system also features the industry-first ExactMil™
Speed Control system that enables the operator to drive at a consistent
speed to easily apply the right mil thickness of paint, allowing users
to produce better, longer lasting lines using less paint.

“The new LineLazer V ES 2000 line striper and LineDriver ES system are
game changers for striping contractors – both in terms of line quality
and improved work environment. The ExactMil Speed Control system on the
LineDriver ES system and zero vibration on the LineLazer V ES 2000 line
striper result in near-perfect lines every time. And for the contractor
who is striping eight hours per day, working without the noise,
vibration and fumes of gas engines will definitely be appreciated,” said
Mike Vangstad, Global Product Marketing Manager for Pavement Equipment
at Graco.
