What is a Line Striping Machine?
There are two ways to do line striping. First, you can use a four-inch paint roller and paint by hand over a chalk line you’ve drawn. But, if you’re looking for a neater, less back-breaking technique and better road marking paint coverage, then we recommend using a striping machine.
A line striping machine is also called a line painting machine or a parking lot striping machine. They can make line striping as fast and easy as taking a walk in the park - even for novice users!
Here are some of the reasons you should get a line striping machine today:
- It saves time. Without striping machines, you’ll need to use spray cans, brushes, and rollers to get the job done by hand. It’s both time-consuming and tedious. Striping machines will help you get the job done faster and with greater accuracy.
- It saves materials (and money)! Did you know that brush and roller painting typically uses more paint than what’s needed to plot a line? That means, without a line painting machine, dollars and cents are going down the drain. Our striping machines are designed to spray only the necessary amount for a neat line.
- It produces better results. You can do it manually and use a straightedge board to guide the paint. But the board could move unexpectedly. Also, using rollers and brushes could result in drips and paint smudges. With a line painting machine, you can make straight lines and curves neatly and consistently with little difficulty.
What Line Striping Machine Should You Use?
Here are the different line striping machines you can use depending on your paint, the benefits that you’re looking for - the type of line striping project that you will be working on.

Which Line Striping Equipment Should I Acquire?
Line striping is used for different types of jobs, such as lining parking lots or football fields to painting airport runways. We have stripers for small jobs or for larger projects. Below are our recommendations:
Basic Striping Equipment
A basic striping equipment contains an applicator on wheels, while the least expensive ones have applicators holding an aerosol can of paint. You can get the paint from us or from another company with spray tips compatible with your equipment.
Basic striping machines are ideal for small paint jobs, such as a parking space with only 10 spaces. If you are a first-timer and you want a more affordable option, then this will be a good fit.
Our AK Asphalt Striping Machine is excellent for small parking areas with 15 or fewer stalls. Equipped with a comfortable handle grip, this equipment is so easy to use. If you're looking for a quick and cost-effective solution, we would highly recommend this.
Professional Striping Equipment
Pro striping equipment are ideal for larger projects. Some models are airless which can produce neater lines and they stay brighter longer, as they use water-based paints.
Getting your own pro equipment is beneficial and cost-effective in the long run as there is no need to hire a contractor. Also, you have the option to rent it out to small businesses.
Our PowerLiner 3500 has enough power to perform regular striping with better performance and durability. In addition, you get a 5-year warranty on the new engine and 4-year for manufacturer defects.
If you want to double your productivity, then consider our PowrLiner 4955, PowrLiner 6955 or the PowrLiner 8955. These machines are ideal for heavy-duty line striping where power and speed make the difference.
