The ValuLiner series was born

Z Liner has been producing pavement marking equipment since 1961. When truck customers initially voiced a need for immediate availability in the mid 1980’s through the year 2000, EZ Liner would often resolve to sell in-stock truck inventory from its own contract marking division. Over time, EZ Liner recognized there was a need growing in the industry to produce a standard line of equipment with quick availability and responded with a limited supply of two variations of airless “spec” trucks based on common sense and frequently requested designs, in stock and available on a first-come, first-served basis. The need for immediate availability has grown even more in recent years, thus our ValuLiner series was born.

The ValuLiner series aims to offer a range of equipment that provides value, performance, and is EZ to use. We strive to have each member of the series available in 90 days or less to meet your striping needs.

The ValuLiner series started with great success in 2017 with the Cascade, a 110-gal capacity truck. The Cascade was quickly followed in 2018 by the Teton, a 500-gal capacity truck and the WindRunner, a 110-gal capacity palletized unit. The fourth member of the ValuLiner series, the TrailRunner, joined in 2019. The TrailRunner is a 110-gal capacity single-operator self-propelled unit.

In 2021 we are excited to welcome the newest member to the ValuLiner series, the Arapahoe. It is a midsize truck in our series with a 230-gal capacity.

In December 2020, the first Arapahoe was built. The Arapahoe design was based on proven custom truck designs and customer input. Our team spent the time independently researching and advising with industry leaders and customers to determine what this truck needs. So, you can be assured that the Arapahoe provides you the most truck you can get in the market for the price and availability.

The Arapahoe offers a unique combination of custom design elements with the benefits of our Valuliner series, which is availability and price. With no CDL requirement to operate, it provides flexibility to your team. Its small build provides agility without losing capacity or performance. An alternative gas-powered Arapahoe version is also being considered for launch, offering even more payload material capacity on the same GVW chassis.

This is just the first step, is there something that is missing that you want? You can easily choose from a list of pre-engineered options that can be added to each ValuLiner model to take it to the next level. While you will add a little bit more build time, you will get a dependable semi-customized piece of equipment to fit specific needs of your business.

The Arapahoe was pre-engineered to allow the addition of a black tank taking this truck from a two-color to a three-color. This option was developed in response to the evolution of the industry as it begins to focus more on line clarity and contrast. This is one of the many pre-engineered options available on this ValuLiner Model.

When it comes down to cost of ownership and ease of use, the ValuLiner series stands alone. At EZ Liner, our priority is building a high-quality product that is built to work as hard as you can.
