SMITH LNX8™ eliminates the grooving pattern or ghost line normally associated with the flail cutter drum-style machines that rely solely on scraping or striking. Thermoplastic, cold-plastic, epoxy or paint coatings are erased by the LNX8 breaking the coating and scraping across it simultaneously, leaving a smoothed beveled edge without grooves or undulations on concrete or asphalt. Easy to operate, walk-behind or optional ride-on rotary no-groove eraser offering 10 styles of erasing and removal tools to finish fast. 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 surface finishes and service-life. Optional convenience swing style rear and front handles, electric start and maintenance-free bearing cutter and drive system maximizes productivity, and reduces operational costs when added to the machine.
