ZAMBONI COMPANY INTRODUCES INNOVATIVE ELECTRIC MODEL 560AC
PARAMOUNT, CALIFORNIA (May 4, 2010) – Frank J. Zamboni & Co., Inc. proudly premieres its newest 500 Series machine, the emission-free Model 560AC. The North American debut takes place on May 6th during the Ontario Recreation Facilities Association’s 2010 Expo in Guelph, Ontario, Canada.
50 Years of Electric Resurfacing
Frank Zamboni built the first electric powered ice resurfacing machine in 1959 for the Winter Olympic Games in Squaw Valley, CA. Since its introduction in 1990, the electric powered Zamboni Model 552 remains the world’s most popular electric ice resurfacing machine.
Integrating state-of-the-art technology into its proven electric ice resurfacing line, the 560AC features redesigned components including AC motors/controls and a load-sensing hydraulic system which increases efficiency, providing more resurfacings per charge. The refined conditioner includes an internal- drive horizontal auger motor and UHMW replaceable poly runners. The automatic snow breaker and Advanced Water System (AWSTM) simplify the resurfacing process.
The new PLUS+1™ dash display enables operators to monitor the resurfacing in progress and make adjustments on demand. Zamboni’s new One-Touch mode uses customizable settings for auger speeds, electronic water valves and blade control for improved ease of operation and a more consistent ice surface from each and every resurfacing.
The machines being built today by the Zamboni Company are almost exclusively alternative fuel powered or electric powered. All of our machine models provide a clean option, allowing a “green” choice for arena operators, based on their specific needs.
With a history that spans over six decades, the Zamboni Company preserves its founder’s legacy as the leader in ice resurfacing technology. Zamboni continues to be the overwhelming choice for ice rink operators throughout the world.
