Ideal for small jobs or on-the-spot corrections, the Borum Line Eraser is a powerful, walk-behind line remover. When Erling Jensen purchased his first Borum Line Eraser for his Danish road marking business EJ Vejstriber in 2005, he was impressed with its performance. Today he’s the proud owner of three Line Erasers, as well as a larger unit designed for mounting on vehicles.
For effortless line removal, the Borum Line Eraser can’t be beat. Although the Line Eraser has benefitted from a few improvements since it first hit the market, the machine is just as compact and easy to manoeuvre as ever.
“The Line Eraser is easy to operate and maintain,” says Erling, “and we never have any problems with our machines.”
With an operational width of 25 centimetres, the Line Eraser breaks and scrapes road markings simultaneously, without leaving sharp-edged grooves in the road surface.
It comes equipped with three cutters, which are driven by a powerful dual belt. The cutters are available in two versions; the 24-pin cutter is designed to remove thermoplastic road markings, while the 48-pin cutter is suitable for removing painted markings. Made of Tungsten Carbide, both versions provide optimum wear resistance. And the tilt-up cover makes it easy to maintain and change the eraser heads.
Weighing in at just over 200 kilograms, the Line Eraser is robust and stable. And with two front wheels and two swivelling back wheels, it’s remarkably easy to manoeuvre for its weight. As far as performance goes, for road markings with a thickness of 1 millimetre and a width of 20 centimetres, the Line Eraser can remove about 200 metres an hour.
When asked if he’d recommend the Line Eraser to others in the road marking industry, Erling doesn’t hesitate, “Without a doubt. Borum is best.”
