In 2011 Carl Watson, a road line marker for 9 years, got together with his mate, Rex Lucas, who had success with his invention of the Lucas Portable Sawmills, to develop a more efficient and safer Line Marking Machine. The initial design was a ‘stand-on’ machine, but testing revealed that although it was efficient in its operation, the comfort of the operator was lacking for continued use. In order to maintain consistency in the line marking it was evident that the operator needed to be as stable and comfortable as possible.
The LineTrike Line Marker is the product of extensive research and development with quality, practicality, safety and ease of operation paramount principles in its development. Line marking has evolved into the LineTrike line marking machine. Patents held in Australia, China & Europe. Patents pending in USA & India.
