– Trusco Trueline 250 / 350 EC (electric compressor) Parking Lot Stripers

The Trueline 250 EC and 350 EC (electric air compressor powered) 5 / 10 gallon stripers are simple and capable paint stripers that can be used to stripe factory floors, parking lots or fields. The 250 is a 5 gallon machine and is the more popular unit. The 350 is the 10 gallon machine and is normally sold to companies who will be striping roads, airports or other large jobs. Both units are great for companies that have access to electric power either from a plug or a generator. To use the  machine you simply plug it in for a couple of minutes until the main tank is pressurized.  Then you unplug it and begin striping.  One charge on the compressor  will spray up to 10 gallons of paint. This is a very low maintenance machine with very few moving parts to break. Units are in stock for quick delivery. Order below online or call 850-934-3157.

The 250 EC and 350 EC machines both use the same high powered air compressor for power.  Once nice feature of this machine is the fact that you can use the air pressure from the unit to power anything that runs off of compressed air such as a small hand sprayer for painting stencils.  Also, like all the Trueline stripers, the unit is very quiet while striping.

There are two hand sprayers that can be added to your Trueline Striper.

The first is the model 523.  It is a heavy duty sprayer and comes with 25 ft. of retractable paint line, 2 spray tips, and an 18″ brass extension for spray assembly.

The second is the model 258 which is a lighter duty sprayer and less expensive.  It comes complete with 10 ft. of paint line, 2 spray tips and a 24″ brass extension for spray assembly.

Both sprayers attach to your machine via the port that you would use to evacuate the paint from the main tank. To activate the sprayer just turn on the valve and squeeze the trigger.  Paint will flow to the spray head and create a spray pattern for curbs, arrows and car stops.


 

– Parking Lot Striping as a Business

Parking Lot Striping has been consistently rated as one of the top small businesses in America. Your initial investment is relatively low and profit margins are high. Once you have purchased your equipment and supplies, you will find that materials make up about 10% of each job. This means that the vast majority of the revenue from a job goes to you.  A typical striping company can earn $2,000 – $4,000 profit per month with ease.

To begin striping as a business you simply need to take the following basic steps.

  • Set up a basic business structure.  (sole proprietorship, partnership, corporation or LLC)
  • Set up a bookkeeping system and checking account.
  • Purchase a striping machine and practice using it.
  • Begin marketing your new business.
  • Prepare quotes for new jobs.
  • Complete the job and invoice the customer.
  • Collect the check.

This may seem like an over simplification of the process but it is really not very difficult.  We started our company and before we even had a machine we had two jobs to do.  One was Baptist Hospital and the other was Home Depot.  We made about $3,000 in a weekend and paid for all of our equipment.
