Where The Rubber Meets the Road

SERVING NORTH AMERICA FOR OVER 30 YEARS

The name Skidabrader™ represents a high production pavement texturing service for the transportation industry. Skidabrader recently added new technologies to our services. Cyclone Technologies™, a patented, state-of-the-art Ultra High-Pressure Water Blasting and The Cyclone truck mounted UHP equipment is highway legal and can mobilize to execute rubber and stripe removal on runways, it also removes coatings, and clean bitumen from road surfaces. Our large shot blasting equipment can prepare up to 12,000 per hour and is the most powerful large machine available on the market for coating removal and our new HFST (High Friction Surface Treatment) with fully automized truck controls that that have a huge success rate in curved, wet and breaking areas that resolves sensitive environmental issues combined, these specialized machines represent the most advanced, powerful, productive, and economical machines in the world today.

​Skidabrader Group, LLC services the needs of airport and highway engineers who have structurally sound pavement with surface and friction problems. The most technologically advanced equipment, operated professionally, allows maximum productivity in short work windows. Fully instrumented controls and plenty of horsepower ensures the operator can quickly and easily produce the specified surface every time, without excuses. One of the largest fleets in the world, with 1,000 horsepower, high velocity bi-direction abrasive blasting machines can quickly and inexpensively transform slick pavement into one that resists skidding, hydroplaning and helps to prevent roadway departures. Skidabrader technology can improve your friction readings to meet industry standards while prolonging the life of the surface and more importantly significantly reducing accidents.

​NASA has hired Skidabrader, after extensive research to retexture their runways at its Florida Runway for the Space Shuttle. Two machines completed 15,000 x 300 ft. wide runway to specifications in just eight working days. In addition, Skidabrader has successfully retextured millions of square yards on interstate highways in Louisiana, California, Texas, Kentucky, Maryland, and many other locations, including Chicago O'Hare International Airport.  Since the Skidabrader acquisition by Bard Holdings the goal has been to expand access to our technologies by opening hubs with equipment to quickly and economically meet your needs.

​Skidabrader Technologies was developed over the last 30 years originally starting as Humble Equipment Co. We have now grown into a global business with locations throughout North America, while completing work in other countries around the world. Skidabrader has the equipment to meet your needs for surface preparation of any kind, airport runway applications, and road friction improvement.
