Oklahoma City, OK (January 23, 2008) Blastrac continues to lead the world in shot blasting technology through innovations based on customers™ needs and desires. The newest member to the family, the state-of-the-art, climate-controlled BMR 85D will set a new standard for shot blasting comfort, quality and performance. The 4-wheel-drive BMR 85D Multi-Task Rider provides effective solutions to real problems. With a 20 wide shot blasting pattern and 12 scarifying head, this totally self-contained unit offers versatility not currently available in North America.
Blastrac shot blasters have been the benchmark in the surface preparation industry for more than 30 years and offers products designed for any application, from the do-it-yourself home owner to the road, bridge and airport maintenance crews. There is no better choice for any job or any skill level.
Blastrac introduced shot blasting to the residential market with its 110V 1-8DEZ and 1-9DEZ blast units, providing the DIY customer the highest quality of surface preparation available and quickly responded to the needs of the professional contractor servicing residential and small business environments with the introduction of the industry™s most affordable self-propelled shot blaster, the 1-8DPS30.
Professional contractors continue to count on the versatile 1-10D since it was first introduced to the industrial flooring market in the 1980s. This unit can produce a light brush blast all the way up to heavy removal at very competitive production rates and prices. The 1-15DS rounds out the mid range and is the preferred machine for thin mill coating preparation where the highest level of coating performance is desired.
Known in the industry as the big iron, the Blastrac 2-20D and 2-30D blast units are unmatched for quality, speed, production and reliability. These blast units fill the need of the contractor looking to satisfy large industrial customers with tight time frames and high quality standards. The 2-30DS can produce production rates up to 7,000 square feet per hour, which are unmatched production around the globe for walk behind shot blast systems.
Why walk when you can ride was the slogan used when Blastrac (formally Nelco) first introduced the ride on shot blaster, and it still remains true today. The industrial contractor has the option of a self-contained, internal combustion engine powered (both diesel and propane) shot blast systems that can be used immediately upon arrival to the job site. Ideal for outdoor work, the GPXP1018 has serviced the road and airport business with pride and continues to be the ride-on shot blaster of choice among outdoor contractors and is known as the most productive ride-on shot blaster of its size. Recent improvements to both machines have kept them at the forefront of ride-on shot blasting.
The Blastrac 2-4800DH rises to the top of portable shot blasting with production rates up to 30,000 square feet per hour. This machine is not for the weak of heart and commands attention in the road, bridge, airport and sea vessel surface preparation markets. The versatility of this machine allows contractors to improve safety on roadways, remove coatings and prepare our nation™s largest military ship decks without modification.
