The Mini HOG

April 25, 2022

HOG Technologies has expanded its thermoplastic marking lane of products with the new Mini HOG.

After acquiring a company by the name of ALTA, HOG Technologies has added a small, compact, ride-on striping machine to its family of products. Originally made to apply thermoplastic lines to surfaces, HOG Technologies has expanded its functionality into two additional models that can apply waterborne paint and 3M tape, respectively.

HOG has created the HOG Pump for their Thermo HOG and Thermoplastic Pre-Melter Skids. It is a pump that is specifically designed to pump thermoplastic and with the new Mini HOG, a miniature version of that pump was created, increasing the efficiency when it comes to pumping the material. The thermoplastic model of the Mini HOG also comes with a heat exchanger as part of the standard configuration, allowing material to stay at the perfect temperature for application.

The Mini HOG comes with a ribbon applicator that can lay single or double lines. Line widths are available in 4”, 6”,  8”, and 16” sizes. The different widths are achieved through opening one or a combination of knives on the ribbon application. The knives are arranged, from left to right as 2”, 4”, 4”, 4”, and 2”. To lay double lines, simply open the outboard knives.

The Mini HOG’s material kettle can hold 400 lbs. of material and is heated by a 30 lbs. propane tank. It features a 6.7 CFM air compressor at 110 psi. 

All of the controls are at the operator’s fingertips. These controls cover both the engine’s controls as well as pattern selections. For patterns, the Mini HOG uses the Skiptimer system allowing patterns to be changed on the fly. It also features a convenient USB port for easy software upgrades.

The Mini HOG is just another innovative and versatile solution from HOG Technologies. It is especially useful for small jobs such as crosswalks, parking lots, turn arrows, or other traffic markings. With its small size, it can easily fit on a flatbed for transportation over long distances.
