Graco Inc., a manufacturer of fluid handling equipment, launches the new ES 500 stencil rig, an electric, battery-powered airless sprayer designed specifically for stencil work. This dedicated stencil rig joins an offering of battery-powered pavement marking products by Graco, which includes the LineLazer ES 500, LineLazer ES 1000 and LineLazer V ES 2000 line stripers, as well as the LineDriver ES ride-on attachment.
The ES 500 stencil rig is designed for stencil applications and the full range of pavement marking materials. The ES 500 stencil rig ships with everything needed to complete any stencil job, including a FlexPlus striping gun with gun extension and RAC 5 stencil tip, along with 50 feet of BlueMax II striping hose. All zinc components are replaced with either stainless steel or e-nickel plated steel parts – as fast-drying, waterborne traffic paints react with zinc.
“The ES 500 stencil rig is a great addition to any striping contractor’s fleet as it provides a low cost, low noise solution for stencil jobs,” said Mike Vangstad, global product marketing manager for pavement maintenance products. “With this dedicated stencil rig, contractors can increase their productivity by not only dedicating a person to stenciling work while the striping is being completed, but also dedicating a rig to those odd colors, like blue handicap stalls or red fire lanes.”
The ES 500 stencil rig features two 6.0 Ah DeWalt FlexVolt batteries and a DeWalt fast charger for continuous operation while eliminating the cost and hassles of gas as well as fumes, noise and vibration. The ES 500 stencil rig also features the proven performance of the Endurance Chromex Piston Pump, brushless DC motor, Advantage Drive System and ProConnect technologies for increased productivity. It’s designed specifically for the full range of traffic paints – allowing for trouble-free performance.
