Newstripe offers the improved Eco-Liner II gasoline-powered field marker, now with the Qwik-Set trigger, hands-free spray trigger. Qwik-Set allows the convenience of activating the spray trigger just once without having to continually squeeze the trigger while striping. Qwik-Set reduces hand strain and the fatigue associated with extended striping. A quick second squeeze of the trigger stops the spray. Eco-Liner II incorporates a direct-drive industrial-grade diaphragm pump coupled to a 3.5-horsepower engine, providing paint pressure up to 60 psi. According to Ralph Newman, president of Newstripe, both the Eco-Liner II and Eco-Liner SP self-propelled version offer superior performance and value.

PortaFloor Pro Line Turf is an effective turf cover to protect artificial turf when sports fields are used for concerts or any mass gathering with heavy pedestrian traffic. PortaFloor consists of rolls of hinged 6-inch-by-24-inch panels for quick and easy installation and removal. You simply roll it out to create a solid, virtually seamless floor. Specially engineered joints expand or contract with varying climatic conditions and the nonporous, anti-slip, textured flat surface is easy to clean and maintain. The cross ribbed construction of the underside of PortaFloor accounts for the lateral strength and rigidity to provide the additional load capability.
