Trueline Stripers by Trusco are easy to use and very affordable alternatives to more expensive gasoline powered line stripers. Unlike the Graco, Kelly Creswell, Proline, Airlessco and other gasoline machines Truelines are easy to maintain yourself with no shop repairs required. The Trueline striping machines use a stainless steel pressure tank where thinned paint is fed into a paint box that slides along the ground. The box makes it possible for the machine to produce a nice clean line even in windy conditions.

Trueline stripers have been around since the 60’s and are great for small to medium sized parking lots. They will do commercial work but may lack some of the extra features that the more expensive machines have. For putting lines down on the ground they are great. “I have personally used the Trueline machine and highly recommend it.” I had the 250 model and used a roller and a separate sprayer for curbs but it has never been a problem. If you do not want to use a roller then I recommend the Trueline Model T-2000. It has a very nice spray unit built in to it.

If you are looking for a very economical way to stripe either your own parking lots or do some commercial work then the Trueline Paint Striper is a machine to look into.
